Pumpkin spice, crisp air, and thick knit sweaters are a few of our favorite autumnal things. As the seasons change, so do the trends and styles — and hues — especially when it comes to weddings. Once you get engaged and start the planning process, your wedding color palette will set the foundation for many decisions later on. We identified 5 of our favorite fall wedding color palettes below, plus photos from real weddings across the country to inspire your planning. From reds and oranges to bright hues and neutrals, the options are endless and endlessly beautiful. 

1. Fresh & Clean Neutral

Fall is a season filled with vibrant hues and changing colors — but sometimes the most elegant wedding celebrations employ a neutral color palette. We love these weddings for their fresh and clean take on fall elegance and creativity.

2. Berry Reds & Magenta Pinks

Deep berry red has been a long-standing favored fall wedding hue, but we’re loving the addition of vibrant pinks and magentas to create a unique color palette. We’ll be loving this combination long after snow hits the ground.

3. Earthy Greens & Whites

Green and white is a classic wedding color combination that works during most seasons, but we especially love it for fall. Lush greenery, white florals, and green and neutral accents work perfectly with the changing seasons.

 4. Vibrant Color Combinations 

Despite the changing seasons, fall wedding colors can still be lively and fiery. Work with your wedding planner or designer to create a vibrant color palette that is punchy, yet subdued to reflect the autumnal season. 

5. Sunset-Inspired Oranges & Reds

Few colors of the rainbow represent the fall season more than orange. However, when you combine orange with captivating yellows and reds, you create a fall wedding color palette as beautiful as the sunset itself.
