This season, we’re seeing berry everything. While Fall “I Do’s” usually bring cozy hues of rich pumpkin and chic mustard, it’s clear that reddish purples, deep pinks, and muted fuchsia are definitely having a moment. We’re not complaining, though: we like the richness of a full-bodied red wine, the surprising burst of a fresh raspberry, and the softness of mauve cashmere as much as the next team of wedding lovers. So, while the traditional Fall colors may still be tried-and-true to many weddings at this time of year, let’s take some time to celebrate this bold and romantic palette in all of its picturesque glory. Here are 12 stunning ways to sink your teeth into this deliciously juicy palette on your Big Day:
Go wild with darks and lights when working with a palette as diverse as the berries! Throw in some moody favorites, like bluish violets and bat orchids, to keep the colors deep and serious, while adding pops of classic romantic blooms, such as red garden roses and fuchsia impatiens. The stark contrast is as eye-catching as it is dramatic!
