2011 Pantone Fall Colors

Most of you having a fall wedding have already chosen your color palette, but we wanted to highlight the 2011 Pantone Fall Colors. Pantone surveyed the designers of New York Fashion Week and beyond to bring you the season’s most important color trends. These combinations can easily be used in any wedding depending on what type of look you are going for.

Bamboo, a surprising fall hue, brings a warm, exotic flavor to the season. Like a filtered sunset on the waning days of fall, Bamboo is a standout yellow with a subtle green undertone.  Combined with Emberglow, a traditional autumnal tone, emanates the warmth of a glowing fire. Last but not least we have Honeysuckle. This playful, reddish pink works with any other color in the palette. When all three of these combined you have a super fresh vibrant palette. Merriment Events is responsible for the lovely bouquet above.

Before we dive into this magical palette we have to mention the Teal Color Block Pleated Dress. It would make such a cute bridesmaid dress. Don’t you think?

Deep Teal, Cedar and Phlox is such a dramatic palette and you can easily intertwine the colors into your look and feel as well as your wedding decor.  Eye-shadow photo | Sam Edelman Women’s Marina Sandal | West Elm Vases (no longer available, but they have lots of similar vases)

If you are a coffee and chocolate lover this color palette should be right up your ally. Combining rich and decadent colors like Nougat and Coffee Liquer with the softer Orchid and Quary gives you a shabby chic homemade vibe. You can totally go crazy with homemade chocolate treats and an over the top coffee bar. This romantic, rustic wedding invitation ties in perfectly with this color palette along with this Claire Pettibone lacey wedding gown.

    I love these colors for a fall wedding, especially the bamboo, it’s unique and really pops for an October or November. I would love to see more color inspiration in the future.

    The contrast of the white vases and the succulence is beautiful. And the mason jar coffee paired with the chocolate cake sounds exactly like what we want right now!

    Always great to have a few pointers on colours that complement each other – especially for those of us that only know blue, red, white…..
