2022 Top 10 Wedding Color Ideas For Fall
One of the first things couples like to do after getting engaged is figure out their color scheme. For some, it’s simply a matter of choosing a palette with their favorite colors. Although this is a good start, you need to think beyond your favorite hues and consider the mood your colors will convey on your big day.
If you have scheduled a fall wedding in 2022 or even 2023, you want to choose colors that convey the feeling of the season. Look no further than our list of 2022 fall wedding colors for inspiration. Whether you love neutrals, deep hues, or vibrant colors, you’ll find a palette on this list that you love.
Sage and Eggplant
There are a lot of fall wedding colors with sage to choose from. In the fall, we love the idea of combining this soft, dusty hue with a deeply saturated one, like eggplant.
Incorporate sage hues through the careful use of greenery. Instead of choosing plants with dark, glossy leaves, choose plants like eucalyptus and salvia. Eggplant can be incorporated through the use of velvet table runners and unexpected details, like purple candle holders.

Terracotta With Burnt Orange, Mustard, and Brown
Terracotta is also a popular wedding color. It can be incorporated into any seasonal décor, but it is most at home in the fall. Think overflowing flower arrangements in terracotta compote bowls and terracotta taper candle holders.
We especially love terracotta details when they are paired with burnt orange, mustard, and brown in the fall. Incorporate these colors through the use of yellow queen Anne’s lace, orange ribbons, and wicker charger plates.
Au Naturel Colors With Very Peri
Very Peri is Pantone’s color of the year. It can be combined with many other hues to create stunning color palettes, but we especially like showcasing this whimsical color by creating a palette of natural hues.
Take these fall wedding colors a step further and include natural elements in your wedding. Think cream-colored linens made out of natural fibers, rattan chandeliers, and driftwood. Incorporate Very Peri in unique ways, like using periwinkle furniture and lighting blue candles.
Champagne and Muted Salmon
If you’re searching for a slightly unexpected color palette, consider the combination of champagne and muted salmon. Champagne is a classic bridal hue, while a dusty shade of salmon adds a surprising pop of color. Silvery gray and sage green can round out this palette quite well.
The trick is to include muted salmon sparingly. Avoid having bridesmaids wear this hue and instead incorporate it through the use of flowers, like dusty orange dahlias, and accessories, like shoes and pocket squares.
Mauve and Navy
Fall wedding colors with navy is timeless, but that also means it has the potential to be boring. That’s definitely not the case when you pair it with another popular 2022 wedding color—mauve.
Gauzy cheesecloth napkins and frosted mercury glass in mauve tones are beautiful ways to incorporate this color. Velvet suits, organza, and geodes in dark navy hues can make this sometimes boring blue hue anything but.
Bridgerton is influencing the world of weddings in many ways. When it comes to color, it’s all about bright, vibrant hues that are perfect for brides who are looking for a classic, yet cheery atmosphere at their fall wedding.
Yellow is seen on Miss Penelope throughout seasons one and two, while her family wears other vibrant hues, like fuchsia and orange. Kate Sharma is partial to blues and purples. Make these juicy colors come alive with opulent details like Rococo wedding cakes, water fountains dripping in roses, and charger plates covered in flowers.
Dusty Rose and Teal
Dusty rose is quickly becoming a classic wedding color, but it can look a little washed out and drab. Liven up this popular 2022 wedding color with teal.
Go with classic dusty roses and let your bridesmaids wear gowns in flattering shades of pink, but have fun incorporating teal into your décor. Cover tables in teal table cloths, place teal mosaic candle holders on tables, and create a candy station with teal treats in apothecary jars.

Moody Jewel Tones
Fall is the perfect time to let out your gothic side and decorate your wedding with moody jewel tones. These are the perfect fall wedding colors for couples who like the idea of hosting spooky nuptials around Halloween, but don’t want their wedding to appear cheesy or cheap.
The more jewel tones you incorporate, the better, like:

White and Ivory With Burgundy and Mustard
These unexpected wedding colors for fall are especially beautiful for brides and grooms who are having an early fall wedding, as they are inspired by the transition between seasons.
Combine crisp whites and ivory details with burgundy and mustard for a refreshing color palette that guests won’t expect. Cover tables in crisp white linens and white roses, but include pops of red with ranunculus and ruffles of golden celosia.
Dusty Earth Tones and Metallics
If you like the idea of going all neutral, take inspiration from mother nature and stick with dusty earth tones. Think shades of rust, sandy browns, and cognacs. Make sure your palette isn’t too grounded by lightening things up with splashes of metallics.
At a formal affair, that might mean incorporating golden chandeliers and silverware, while less formal affairs might incorporate copper bowls or centerpieces with tarnished silver antiques.
