August, 16 2022
When it comes to fall weddings, we usually think of warm and velvet-styled weddings! A fall wedding, in general, is synonymous with deeper color palettes. Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely adore the dark colors and tonality of fall weddings. Despite the idea of a fall wedding being steeped in the wondrous beauty of earthy tones, we ache to talk about something brighter and lighter. And that is why we’re taking the time to go against the trends and what we usually assign to fall weddings. So, instead of a dark regal wedding with earthy tones, today we’ll list out some brilliant wedding ideas that are a few steps away from the traditional ideas and myths that surround beautiful fall weddings! That said, let’s dive into some great, brilliant, and stunning ideas for a bright fall wedding:
Choose the Correct Wedding Color Scheme: Prefer the Lighter Shades
The best way to light up your fall wedding, you should consider choosing lighter shades! The first thing to do when choosing your wedding color scheme is to consider using lighter shades that still resonate with the season. The best idea to help you bring lighter shades to your wedding is to choose colors like blue, frost, cardinal red, pineapple, hunter green, orange, silver, beige, or dove gray. The best way is to make your wedding’s color ideas that are bright and still look whimsical, then try using a nature-inspired color palette. However, keep in mind that the colors should have some speckles of yellow or orange, these additional colors will add bright quality to your wedding color scheme! Another way to ensure that your wedding looks bright is to use modern color themes that work for pretty much any season. Wondering what kind of color schemes work for a whimsically dreamy fall wedding? Then try using pink, blue, ivory, yellow, blush, or muted neutrals! The color scheme ideas that we find absolutely stunning for your fall wedding are a complete ochre for a bright wedding, ginger, mint, and lemon for a stylish autumn affair, and emerald and blush for a regal, fresh and stunning fall wedding!
The Prettiest Wedding Bouquet: Make Your Own Glamorous Wedding Bouquet
One of the greatest ways to add color and brightness to your wedding is to have a glamorous wedding bouquet! For your wedding bouquet, you can choose bright colors. A great way to add more colors to the theme you’ve already selected is to use colors that aren’t a part of your wedding color palette. For example, if you’re throwing a beautiful wedding with shades of green, yellow, and orange, then how about a boho ivory wedding bouquet? If you can’t find the kind of bouquet you wanted, then how about you create your own DIY boho ivory wedding bouquet? You can add some props, and then find flowers similar to the props you add to the bouquet! This bouquet or a cascading ivory bouquet will look brilliant for single-color wedding themes or bright colors! But if you’re using blush or muted shades for your wedding, you should try to create a bouquet of bright colors! However, if you find it tough to get the right shades, the right flowers, and the correct look for your wedding bouquet, then how about taking things into your hands? Instead of looking for the perfect wedding bouquet from a florist, you can look up DIY wedding bouquet ideas to add the glamor you’d love! Another fun idea that we simply love is a beautiful wedding bouquet with LED lights! You can find light-up flowers, or choose to add LED and fairy lights to your bouquet to make it look even more stunning. If you can’t find the type of lit wedding bouquet, then you can always create one to add a wonderful DIY touch to your wedding!
