Fall Weddings

Happy Monday everyone!

Were you lucky enough to be involved in a fall wedding this past weekend?

Fall is one of my favorite times to get married. The colour palate is so rich, so exciting, so GORGEOUS.

Today I bring you a fall themed wedding post.

Having a fall themed wedding can be best described as "warm", and not in the sense of having a scorching hot summer wedding, but more with the "coziness" and "warmth" that rich deep colours can bring.

Some great ideas for a fall coloured wedding include the following:

A brighter purple for fall has been the coming trend for 2010 I am more partial to a darker eggplant purple for fall though as it is a little more richer for the bright fall colours that end up in your photos from the foliage.

Fall weddings have one colour factor in it that most weddings do not. TONS of colour. For a summer wedding, minus floral backgrounds, your photos will contain the lovely blue sky and usually some green foliage. In fall you have the fall leaf colours of reds, greens, yellows and oranges.

To best neutralize the background for your fall wedding it is suggested the bridesmaids wear a darker or more neutral colour such as brown, eggplant, dark red or burnt orange. Or you can play up the colours of the fall foliage and be bright and colour full with a primary red or orange. Just remember, a neutral dress allows you to be more "free" with the bouquets adding various colours and allowing that to be your palette of colours. You do not want to many colours or "things" going on in your pictures. I mentioned it before and I will mention it again. Your wedding is your day and whatever colours you choose are chosen for a reason and they will work not matter the season.

Happy Planning!
