Bridesmaids may choose light shades of green, while groomsmen may choose a darker shade for their coats. Moreover, to complete the nature-inspired wedding, white or blush pink floral arrangements may be added to complement a serene yet elegant vibe.
4. Navy Blue
Likened to the sky or sea, using shades of navy blue for an Autumn wedding is also a popular choice. It can be paired with burnt orange, metallic gold or silver, or pale color like ivory for an Autumn-inspired set-up. For a sophisticated look, bridesmaids may have a floor-length navy blue dress accessorized with any gold or silver jewelry.

Autumn has always given us a warm, fuzzy feeling. That is why it has been a popular season for weddings. You may use shades of beige or cream or even a chocolate brown color to give off a cozy vibe. Gold accessories may be used to compliment these colors. As for the wedding decorations, gold painted pumpkins and leaves are a wonderful addition for the tables.
Pink has always been a popular color for many girls. For Autumn weddings, a subtle shade like mauve or dusty rose may be used. Pair it with rustic accents to help it blend with the Autumn season.

The tables may be decorated with burgundy peonies or any blooms with darker pink shades. Earthy colors like rustic brown and olive green may also be added for a more nature-inspired feel.
7. Cranberry Red and Ivory
Combining cranberry red and ivory is also one of the show stoppers for Autumn weddings. Putting on a strong cranberry red on a very tame ivory gives off a bohemian vibe. Bridesmaids may use loose ivory gowns or dresses with cranberry red accents. An ivory colored cake decorated with dark red flowers or fresh red berries like strawberries, cranberries or cherries will be one of the event’s highlights.
8. Light Blue and Mustard Yellow
Another beautiful Autumn inspiration is with the use of light blue with mustard yellow accents. It gives off a laid-back feeling which is like during the end of summer and beginning of Autumn. The girls may use light blue gowns or cocktail dresses accented with mustard yellow accessories. In addition, the groomsmen may use light blue coats accented with mustard yellow neck or bow ties.
It is best to use subtle-colored flowers like light blue hydrangeas or any cream-colored blooms to decorate the venue. Elegant blue dishware and yellow mustard flowers and table runners may be used for the buffet table.
9. Citrus Orange and Dark Red
Deep red color combined with bright or citrus orange is also an Autumn wedding favorite. For those who prefer a more vibrant and fun vibe, this is the best color combination to choose. A citrus orange dress will flatter your bridesmaids’ skin tones. Dark red accents may be added to complement their outfits.
As for the decorations, red chrysanthemums or bright orange Calla Lilies may be used. You may also opt to use fruits like tangerines and red berries for dessert or even for the wedding cake. Add brightly-colored cocktails to complete the cheery festive feel.
10. Aubergine and Champagne
Autumn is also known as the season for berries like mulberry and raspberry. To recreate the mood, you may opt to use different shades of aubergine. For a more elegant feel, shades of champagne are used. Bridesmaids may choose from different hues of aubergine to accessorize their champagne-colored long gowns for a more noticeable contrast. For the bouquet, make sure to balance the use of aubergine blooms with pale colored florals. You may also use berries to top a white or cream-colored cake.
The weather may start to cool down during Autumn. Because of this, an Autumn wedding is one of the best venues to bring warmth and comfort to people close to your heart.
