Autumn is the second favourite month for couples to get married in. Autumn brings rich, warm colours to plants and trees that provide a spectacular contrast to the fresh crisp autumn weather.  Deep, vibrant and earthy colours perfectly compliment the Autumn season.

Autumn Wedding Theme Colours

Try to stay away from pastel colours, they are an uncommon choice for the Autumn wedding and there are so many other shades that suit the Autumn season so much better!

Autumn Wedding Colour Combinations

Popular Autumn colours that give a regal feel are warming burgundies, claret red, gold, copper, olive greens, and dark pinks.

For that real earthy autumn feel use mocha, chocolate, rustic reds and burnt oranges mixed with sunshine yellows.

Burgundy, mustard and a little bronze create a vibrant yet rustic colour scheme that’s perfect for Autumn. These colours bring the outdoors in whilst adding sophistication and elegance.

Clock vine is a flower almost made for this colour scheme, it comes in a variety of colours but make sure to pick ‘mysore clock vine,’ a delicate flower that combines the mustard and burgundy into each petal. It will make stunning centrepieces especially when tied in bronze ribbon to add some thoughtful detail. Burgundy is a fabulous rich colour, bridesmaids, flower girls and even the groom will scrub up amazing when wearing this luxurious shade.

Olive green, gold and champagne are all subtle and classy colours. The gold and champagne will give that sophisticated amount of sparkle while the olive green provides the warmth to your classic Autumn colours.

When it comes to olive green flowers I’m afraid there not many out there, try making bouquets with cream English roses and adding green hypericum berries to tie the colours in with your theme and make outstanding displays. Olive green candles will look beautiful on tables while champagne seat covers with a gold bow will make your guests feel like royalty.

Oranges from burnt to bright are always a popular choice in autumn, not only do they bring the beautiful colours of nature in doors but help to create a Halloween themed wedding nicely. To use orange in a classy way try burnt rustic shades that aren’t too over powering, pair with copper or bronze for an elegant look.


When matching a third colour to your scheme, rather than using white or black go for a combination of cream or muted white as this would blend with these colours better.

For a full on Halloween wedding bright orange is best paired with a deep grey rather than a harsh black. Decorations could even include pumpkins themselves and toffee apples for guests!
