For a fall wedding, rusty red and sage green are the perfect colors to create that autumn leaf feel. Adding gold accents enhances this fall color scheme, making it feel like you’re in a fall wonderland! 

Winter – Forest Green, Maroon, Silver, and White

If you’re getting married in the winter, cooler colors are definitely the way to go. Using a pure white instead of ivory will look amazing with silver. Cooler shades of maroon and green will match perfectly, especially if there’s snow in the background!

Spring – Peach, Rose Gold, Cream, Yellow

When we think of spring, we think of soft, warm colors. Pairing a peachy orange with cream and warm yellow accents creates such a colorful feel, without being too bright. Rose gold will compliment these colors beautifully! 

Summer – Sage, Purple, Ivory, and Salmon

For a summer wedding, adding a bright colors to shades of green creates such a playful, natural feel. Salmon is such a warm, summery color! And ivory would bring out the warm tones of the other colors.

How To: Adjust to a New Wedding Season

We know it’s hard to have any definite plans about your wedding with constant changes in social distancing guidelines.

But we’re over here daydreaming about how your postponed wedding could become a fall wedding and all the fun that goes along with September, October, and November weddings!

The number one reason? Makeup doesn’t sweat off your face!

All the (more serious) reasons we love fall weddings!


  1. The weather’s still warm, but not sticky and sweaty! Hello, outdoor ceremonies! And no more frizzy hair! Cross that worry off your list.

  1. The trees are still full of leaves, and if you’re lucky, it’ll be colorful for photos.

  1. Unique flowers and color palettes are all the rage. This is your explicit permission to try something out-of-the-box (if you weren’t already doing it:))
