Fall Wedding Colors

Timeless Wedding Inspiration at East Ivy Mansion in Nashville

Timeless
adjective

  1. not affected by the passage of time or changes in fashion.

When faced with the question of what their wedding style is, brides are often at a loss for where to begin or have yet to consider the design they want. Choosing a timeless base for your design is a great way to start, whether it is timeless to you or to wedding trends in general. For example, choosing to wed at a horse farm because you grew up around horses, or choosing a historic mansion with beautiful grounds. 

New and updated styles, new technology, and new trends are all great elements to incorporate and embrace when fitting with your style, but those elements that are classic and enduring should also be embraced. 

I dug into my archives for this blog, a shoot from 2014. Because of the timeless elements, I will continue to love it for years to come. I am lucky enough to still work with all of the vendors from this shoot. It really is amazing to come together on a creative project, as well as to serve a client. 

While I typically love to work with an event stylist, this shoot I styled with my photographer, Alyssa Joy Photography. I am a bit obsessed with details and the focus was the color palette of teal, cranberry, silver, and white. The colors were pulled in from everything - the place cards, linen napkin, the bride's jewelry and shoes, the groom's suit and tie, the cake, calligraphy, etc. Some of the items are more trendy, like the teal tie, while others will endure, like the venue and the lace gown.

Wedding Trend: Colors for Fall 2014

Radiant Orchid is the 2014 color of the year and we have already seen it splashed all over blogs and inspiration boards. But how best could you use this bright color in the fall? Last month the Pantone Fall 2014 Color Report came out with a few answers.

If you are in the midst of planning your fall wedding, Pantone has chosen the colors that will dominate the color schemes. You will be sure to see them everywhere from linens to bridesmaids dresses. The colors are: Royal Blue, Aluminum, Aurora Red, Misted Yellow, Sangria, Mauve Mist, Cognac, Bright Cobalt, and Cypress.

Celebrities seem to be liking the Radiant Orchid. Many have been spotted in casual to formal outfits of Radiant Orchid; including my favorite, Kristen Bell, and the two below - Kelly Osbourne and Amy Adams.

But if you aren't choosing the color of the year for your wedding dress or your bridesmaids, how else can you incorporate it? And how can you mix the variety of unique colors?

Your flowers are an easy and beautiful place to start. For example, these Aurora Red orchids and Radiant Orchid calla lilies. Or try a combination of flowers with Sangria and Bright Cobalt accents, like this bouquet of dahlias, mini calla lilies, roses, carnations, and bi-color dendrobium orchids.

A bit too wild for you? Cognac, Misted Yellow, and Cypress (brown, yellow, and green) not only scream "fall," but add in a touch of white, and you have the perfect combination for a simple, soft centerpiece.

Or, why not mix the palette together?

Aluminum table linen, mauve mist bouquet, royal blue bridesmaid dress, sangria colored dessert.

What's your favorite fall color from the Pantone?  Will you be using one or a combination in your wedding?
