Fall 2017 Wedding Color Trends

After a long wait, fall is here! Summer brought us beautiful neutral tones with lots of greenery, but the wedding color trends for fall 2017 are rich and deep in tone… speaking to the true coziness that we’ve all been waiting for after long, hot summer in the NW.

We came across some stylish graphics from our friends at The Black Tux, a stress-free online tux and suit rental company with trendy options, to bring you the top three color combinations for fall.

Navy & Marsala

It’s no secret that navy suits are in and here to stay. Our personal favorite is the modern navy suit, which is a little lighter in color but really pops off of the accompanying color palette and gives our grooms a little spotlight as well.

The rich marsala color was dropped on our radar a few years ago but it’s classic and sumptuous in tone and clearly has no intentions of leaving anytime soon. The marsala flower options go well with our top requests for white and greenery AND marsala looks great with any metal tone.

You might think that beige suits are strictly for spring, summer, or beach weddings but you’d be surprised how clean they look when paired with orange tones. This look definitely feels more “harvesty” but is perfect for those fall loving couples looking for a crisp palette. Take note: burlap is not a necessary linen to go matchy-matchy with beige. There are many linen options you can pull from that carry the beige tone. Our favorites? La Tavola’s Nuovo Beige or Tuscany Eggshell.


Plum & Grey

We love that plum and dusty purple are coming back on trend. Plum pairs so well with various types of greenery and foliage but looks especially on-point when next to a classic grey suit – either light grey or a dark charcoal.

A great way to add depth to your color palette is to use a variety of shades of plum – maybe in florals or bridesmaid dresses.


Regardless of your palette, we highly recommend carrying your shades all the way through from start to finish; from the dress you wear in your engagement photos to be used on your save the date to the last dessert served at the end of the night. Hints of your color selection will create a continuity that will give your wedding flow and feel like your creative touches were purposeful and not just something you saw on pinterest or instagram. If you are using plum, wear a plum dress in your photos, use a plum wax seal on your invitations, add plum florals to your bouquet, and serve plum macarons to your dessert table. Subtle hints are better than huge swashes of color that make it feel like it’s “too much.” But most of all, make it you and enjoy the process.
