Navy Blue + Dusty Orange
Navy blue and dusty orange are a great combination for a fall wedding, especially if you’re looking for something that’s got a little bit of elegance to it. Navy blue is a classic color for men’s suits and dusty orange is a great fall color that looks good on both men and women. If you don’t want to go with navy blue or dusty orange, there are plenty of other options!
Teal + Tangerine
If you’re looking for a rich, vibrant color scheme, look no further than teal and tangerine. While these colors may not seem like they would go together at first glance, they actually complement each other perfectly. Teal and tangerine are complementary colors—that is, they’re opposite on the color wheel—which means that when used together they create a visual contrast that helps to amplify each one’s intensity. Not only do these two hues have complementary qualities but they also have similar ones: both are warm colors; both are cool colors; and as stand-alone hues or accent pieces, both can add depth and dimension to your wedding day look.
So how exactly do you pair them? Start by choosing your dress first (teal wedding gowns and tangerine bridesmaid dresses). Then choose your earrings (tangerine dangling earrings), shoes (teal stilettos), clutch bags (a white leather pouch made with teal silk lining), centerpieces (vases filled with pink roses) or even the bouquet itself! No matter what part of your ensemble you decide upon next time you’re picking out an outfit for an upcoming event—whether it be a night out on the town or something more formal like an autumn wedding—make sure those accessories match up nicely with all of your other pieces from head to toe so that everything looks good in pictures later on down the road when people eventually see them back again at their holiday parties!
Rust + Orange
Rust is a reddish-brown or orange-brown color that can be found in nature. Rust can also describe the color of the sky at sunset, which is usually an orangey-red color. Rust is often associated with metal, as when iron or steel oxidizes it will turn rust. Metal rusts because over time oxygen enters into tiny cracks on its surface and oxidizes them (this process is called oxidation). Oxidation makes metals weaker; this is why people use oils and waxes to protect their cars from rusting.
Burgundy + Grey
Burgundy and grey are complimentary colors. That means that they’re opposite each other on the color wheel, and when combined, they create a harmonious color palette.
Burgundy is a warm color; it has red in its makeup and can be described as a dark red or maroon. Grey is a cool color; it has blue in its makeup and can be described as light grey or charcoal.
Burgundy also comes in many shades (burnt orange being one of them). The shade you choose will depend on what you want for your wedding day look, but we recommend going with darker shades like burgundy if you plan to wear black or white dresses/suits at your wedding ceremony so that they don’t clash with each other while still looking elegant!
Dusty Blue + White + Green
First, you’ll want to choose a dusty blue. This color is typically most popular for weddings, especially during the spring and summer months. The best way to incorporate it into your wedding is by pairing it with white and green flowers. White will brighten up the color scheme and add some contrast between your dress and bouquet, while green will help add more color without overpowering everything else that’s going on in the room.
If you want to go for just one piece of bridal inspiration from this article (remember: three is considered excessive), then this would be my pick—it’s both elegant yet effortless at the same time!
Maroon + Purple
Maroon and purple are a rich color combination that can be used as your wedding palette. These colors are bold, so you’ll want to keep your other wedding elements simple so they don’t compete with the bridal party’s attire.
- Maroon: This deep red is a great choice for dressy occasions or weddings with a fall theme
- Purple: A vibrant shade of violet works well in floral arrangements and bouquets
Wine + Gold
Wine and gold are the perfect pair for your wedding. Gold is a metallic yellow, while wine is a deep red—but they’re both warm colors that will make everyone feel like they’re at an autumn wedding. Even if you don’t plan to have much in the way of decor at all, these two colors can be incorporated into your outfits with ease.
Wine and gold complement each other perfectly, so if you’re looking for something simple but elegant to wear on your big day then this combo is right up your alley! You could even use some of these shades as accents within other color schemes too—just keep in mind that it might look better when paired with complimentary shades rather than clashing ones like purple or blue (unless of course that’s what works best).
Dusty Rose + Burgundy
Dusty Rose is a soft, muted pink that can be used in any shade. It’s a great color for wedding invitations and floral arrangements alike. For example, you could use Dusty Rose for your invitation’s background color or as an accent color on the envelope or enclosure card. To tie these colors together with other aspects of your big day, try to incorporate burgundy accents throughout the venue (e.g., napkins) and decorate tables with burgundy flowers like roses or ranunculus bouquets!
Taupe + Red + Orange
Taupe can be paired with red and orange, as it’s a neutral color. The combination of taupe and red is a popular one for weddings. Taupe is a mix of grey and brown, two colors that are commonly used in weddings. Some people may think that taupe is too boring of a color to use in their wedding, but when you combine it with other shades like red or orange, it will add an interesting twist to the room. It also works well with other shades of browns if you want something bolder than just greys!
Burgundy + Peach + Greenery
Burgundy is a deep red color, and peach is a light orange color. These two colors are complementary colors, which means that they make for an excellent pairing. If you’re looking for something more traditional, consider using burgundy with your bridesmaids’ dresses instead of black or navy blue. You can also pair it with greenery (think: pine trees) to create an earthy feel that’s perfect for fall weddings (or autumn-inspired ones).
Champagne + Salmon
Champagne and salmon are both sophisticated neutral colors. They can be used as accents, or as the primary two colors in your wedding palette.
If you do want to use them as your main wedding colors, they pair perfectly with other shades of champagne and salmon that are less saturated than the ones we’ve already mentioned (for example, pale skin tone ivory is a great color choice). You could even play up their neutral tones by using white or silver accents throughout your decor!
If you’re looking for some more specific ideas on how to incorporate these two hues into your big day, here are some great alternatives:
Dusty Rose + Wine
Dusty rose is a beautiful color to pair with wine because the two complement each other so well. Dusty rose is a warm pink that has hints of peach, while wine is a brick red or burgundy that’s rich and deep. The two colors are great for an autumn wedding because they’ll add warmth to your palette, but will also work in winter if you keep your color scheme light and airy enough.
Orange + Black
Orange and black is an awesome color combination for a fall wedding. It’s bold, it’s unique and it will really stand out against the traditional orange + black combo of Halloween. Orange + black bouquets or centerpieces can make for a beautiful display at your reception or cocktail hour. They’re perfect for summer weddings too!
Blush + Blue
Purple + Orange + Burgundy
Emerald Green + Brown
Wellow + Blush
Gray + Blue + Red
This is just a small sampling of the colors you can use for your wedding. We hope this has given you some inspiration in choosing colors, as well as ideas on how to mix them together. If you’re still struggling with your color palette, remember that it doesn’t have to be perfect right away! Many people start off by choosing a few colors they like and building from there, so don’t worry if things change over time.
