5 Colours For The Perfect Autumn Wedding

posted in: Wedding Tips | 0

When it comes to choosing your wedding colours, the season makes all the difference. This month we’re talking all things autumn, and our top 5 autumn wedding colours to perfectly compliment your day.


Violet is one of our favourite shades of purple. It stands out without being overpowering, and can add a little kick where needed. It looks great with natural bouquets and in centrepieces. We love seeing thistles in bridal bouquets and buttonholes. It tones down deeper purples and looks good with natural greens and white. It’s quickly becoming one of the most popular autumn wedding colours.

Navy Blue

For a wedding colour that compliments all autumns natural tones, Navy is perfect. With numerous flowers in this shade of blue, along with countless bridesmaid dress options it’s also a simple colour to fit into your wedding. For a more subtle touch, use it on the tables as a runner or centrepiece. We love pairing it with yellows and burnt orange.

Having silver as an autumn wedding colour makes it feel a little colder and in keeping with the season. There are two styles when it comes to adding in silver: – Subtle or All Out. Having a touch of the icy shade on your wedding cake, on the ribbon around your flowers, or as a sparkly table runner are beautifully subtle ways to introduce it to your wedding. If you’re more of an ’All Out’ person, silver bridesmaid dresses are a fabulous way to go (and they’re becoming increasingly easy to find). The beauty of having silver buttonholes, chair covers and decorations is that they’ll go with pretty much any other colour too.


So many shades of orange are a perfect match for an autumn wedding. We love the burnt orange look, paied with a forest green. While bridesmaid dresses in orange shades are popular, they’re not for everyone. A more subtle way of introducing this colour into your wedding is through your flowers and buttonholes. Burnt sunflowers or begonias stand out with greenery and thistles. Ties or cravats in a burnt orange look dapper when paired with the right suit.

This deep red colour works for both autumn and winter weddings. It looks beautiful in dresses and on the tables. To keep your wedding autumnal rather than wintery, pair it with purples and whites – the colours of the season. Later in the year greens, silver and gold take over for a more Christmassy feel.
