If you’re throwing a fall wedding, and are still unsure of the colors to choose, we have a list of ideas that will help you. And the best part is, just because your fall wedding may happen next year does not mean that you cannot incorporate these color ideas into your wedding. 


  1. Blush Pink: Pretty Pink Wedding Ideas 


Blush pink is trending, and rightfully so. This color makes your wedding color combination and the details jump out, which leads to amazing wedding photos. To us, blush pink is more than just a fair choice for bridesmaid dresses. To us, this color is a great choice for fall wedding decor ideas, especially if you’re choosing to forego the “moodiness” of the season. We know, when we mention fall weddings, the first thing that pops into your mind is the moody shades. But we feel, this time around injecting some pops of colors to your wedding ideas will do the trick for you. Instead of going for a deep-color wedding theme, try using blush pink and pink in the wedding color scheme


If you’re looking for some ideas to incorporate into your wedding, then we have some great ideas for you! Of course, blush pink bridesmaid dresses are the best idea, but how about we step away from that? We think pink and blush pink tablescapes are a great way to make your fall wedding look bright and airy. Whether you’re throwing an indoor wedding, or an outdoor one, this will add some extra sparkle to your wedding day. Another way to use blush pink is to use pink or blush pink accessories. For example, if you’re throwing a moody wedding with black and deep shades, you can use satin blush pink ribbons as hair ties or even belts for the wedding outfits! You can also have the flower girls dressed in lovely blush-pink outfits! Another way to use this shade is to add pink or blush pink accent flowers. 


  1. Dusty Pink: Moody Fall Weddings with a Twist 


Since we’re on the topic of pink wedding ideas, let’s not forget to mention this lovely dusty pink shade. One of the best on-trend colors, dusty pink adds a classy touch to your wedding day. It helps you amplify the wedding decor ideas and helps you make the most of the shade as well. To us, dusty pink is as good as red for a fall wedding. We feel that dusty pink, in your wedding, will help you add an elegant touch and make your wedding day look brilliant. 


To use dusty pink in your wedding celebrations, all you’ll need is to plan it well. A great way to add this shade to your wedding day is by choosing the groom and groomsmen’s tie in this shade. To synchronize the shades, you can also have your bridesmaid outfits planned in dusty pink shades. Apart from this, this color is deep and warm, unlike blush pink, so we think that it will be a great fit for your wedding details. For example, you can have dusty pink napkins for your wedding guests. You can also set the tone for your wedding by choosing to send brilliant dusty pink wedding stationery. Apart from this, we feel that dusty pink table runners for your wedding will be a great choice. Also, to elevate your wedding day’s table settings, you can add greenery runners to your dusty pink table runners, which will help you create a lovely touch to the wedding look. 


  1. Moss Green: Add Some Pastel Colors to Your Wedding Aesthetic 


We love wedding ideas and we love offbeat wedding ideas even more! Moss green is a color that we don’t often see in wedding ideas. Simply put, this beautiful color is a lovely shade, and adds some impressive touches to the wedding theme. To us, a moss green color and shade is a great choice simply because it adds depth along with an aspect of “delicate detail.” Moss green can be used as an accent color to your wedding color scheme ideas. What’s more, you can juxtapose the color with white and cream shades, which will add a brilliant touch to your wedding day look.  


If you’re thinking of adding this color to your wedding, then we have some ideas for you. We are sure that a fall wedding color scheme, to most of us, is nothing but deep and dark shades of the season. But moss green is a dusty pastel shade that adds a moody touch to your fall wedding without making it moody. Moss green can be used in your wedding as an accent. One of the best moss green accents to your wedding is to have moss green wedding invitation envelopes with your and your partner’s initials embossed on them. Another way to add moss green to your wedding is to choose a greenery wedding bouquet instead of traditional bridal bouquets! If you are not a fan of greenery wedding bouquets, you can simply add pretty white flowers with greenery instead! You can also choose tablescape details in moss green. For example, fall weddings are perfect for using colorful crystal glasses. You can look for moss green or olive green glasses, which will help you add more touches of shade to your wedding. Last, but not least, you can have a wedding cake in a moss green shade. To make the wedding cake look just right and perfect for your wedding day, you can use a cake topper or some cute glitter balls on the cake. 


  1. Burgundy: The Perfect Fall Wedding Color
