Steering away from bright summer hues, fall’s palette is making it rich, cozy and charming. Rather than the blush rose and ivory color that every wedding boasts these days, think lilac, aubergine, burgundy and beige. The palette is still feminine, but a little more tailored to the season at hand.

These colors can be introduced in florals, of course, but also with linens, accents, or even rugs like this Red Pine Lodge wedding.

If you’re wanting to add a little bit of luxury to this otherwise rustically-inclined palette, think all things sparkly. Metallic candelabras, candlelight and geodes all bring the bling to a wedding spread.

Menu

Of course, you’re going to see your typical menu items for fall. Roasted fruit, hearty vegetables, the works. But something we are seeing and loving this season is the unique array of small plates and hors d’oeuvres coming from the minds of couples and caterers alike.
