18 Fall Wedding Color Palettes - The Ultimate Guide

Confession time. Okay, so I must have changed my wedding palette at least 10 times when I was planning my wedding. And who could blame me? With irresistibly pretty palettes around every corner, it's no wonder that so many couples have trouble narrowing it down. Am I right?

Believe me, I considered all kinds of colors! From the bright and bold to the light and airy...And guess what? I fell in love with far too many color palettes along the way. It's too bad we couldn't have used them all! 

Still on the hunt for the perfect palette? Here’s a look at 18 of my favorites for Fall! Yeah, it was supposed to be a top 10 list, but I sort of got carried away. And I'm hoping you can see why!

18 Fall Wedding Color Palettes - - The Ultimate Guide

1. A Lavender Palette: Looking for an ultra pretty color palette that's full of possibilities? Why not consider this beauty of a palette? Works perfectly for Fall and it's so easy to pull together! Just combine your favorite shades of lavender to create this effortlessly romantic look.

2. Peach + Green: Absolutely exquisite. That's the thought that comes to mind when I see these made-for-each-other shades! Peach looks so nice with these soft sage shades. And surprisingly, it works great for Fall too. I think a lot of times we get hung up on the idea that softer shades need to reserved for Spring or Summer. But that's totally untrue.

3. Cranberry, Brown + Dusty Blue: Unwilling to settle for the ordinary? Why not opt for something extraordinary! Like this unexpected combination of cranberry, brown and dusty blue. It's color palettes like this that make my heart skip a beat!

4. Cranberry and Orange Tones: What happens when shades of cranberry get mixed with these fabulous citrus shades? All kinds of unexpected prettiness. That's what! It's a mix that definitely on the more traditional side for Fall, but it's one that is will never go out of style.

5. Shades of Emerald + Ivory: If you're a green girl at heart, then you're going to love this palette which combines emerald and ivory. Elegant, romantic, and all kinds of gorgeous, this shade of green really is an amazing one. And definitely fits nicely for the season.

6. Burnt Orange + Dusty Blue: Hello, perfect palette. Orange and dusty blue? Anyone ever consider pairing these colors together? I can't say that I have paired these too often and yet, I have to wonder why. Because look how nicely they work together? Especially when used with this vintage meets rustic type of styling.

7. Berry Tones + Muted Hues: Berry tones will always have a place in my heart. And I'm hoping you can see why. From cranberry to raspberry and everything in between, I'm really liking this combination here lately. Throw in some muted tones, a bit of blackberry and some peach and you'll have a palette that's nothing short of photo-worthy.

8. Berry Tones: Vibrant, colorful, and absolutely eye-catching, I have long loved the idea of combining warm colors like these. Pinks and purples are perfect for setting the scene for romance. And it's easy to see why.

9. A Neutral Palette: A natural softness makes this neutral color palette of beautiful beige tones look cozy and approachable. So easy to pull together and what a beautiful look it is! I like the idea of adding little pinches of silver throughout.

10. Orange + Ivory: I was a Fall bride myself, and even though I fell in love with so many Fall palettes, I couldn't resist my love for this Autumnal hue. Burnt orange pairs with ivory so nicely. Wouldn't you agree? It's a rich and rustic look that will never grow old for me.

11. A Neutral Palette: What happens when shades of brown get mixed with charcoal gray and a bit of navy blue and ivory? All kinds of unexpected prettiness. That's what! It's a mix you don't see everyday and I really wish we would! I'm loving how rustic and rich it feels.

12. Burnt Orange + Neutral Tones: Looking to strike a balance between those bright and muted tones? Why not combine colors like this? This red-orange color looks amazing when paired with this almost-gray color. Wouldn't you agree? Plus you get the best of both worlds.

13. Shade of Blue, Ivory + Gold: If you're a blue lover, then this one is for you! I really love the idea of mixing deep blue tones with shimmery metallic shades like gold. Throw in a bit of romantic ivory and you'll have yourself a palette that's romance-ready!
