A moody palette for a cosy season
You can have some fun with your autumnal wedding palette. Autumn weddings can take the luxurious, rich colours and textures that a lighter spring or summer wedding would just be crushed under. If you’re planning an autumnal affair, here’s some gorgeous inspiration to get you in a luxuriously dark sort of mood.
Make white shine
Gorgeous dark colours make a radiant white dazzle. If you want a dark palette but are planning a white wedding dress, you can be sure you’ll be the centre of attention… and rightfully so!
We’ve said it before, but we’ll say it again… metallics are a stunning way to lift the colour palette of a wedding. Adding a flash of copper or gold makes dark colours luxurious and opulent. And we love it!
What’s more sophisticated than a little black dress? If it was good enough for Chanel, it’s definitely good enough for us. Your bridesmaids will feel sleek and chic – everyone loves a black dress! Also, as an added bonus, you’ll shine in white next to them!
Light it up
Moody, dark and opulent. The perfect backdrop for some sparkling twinklers. Fairy lights, candles and stylish bare hanging bulbs will give pinpricks of light to add a little magic to the mystery.
Surrender to the dark
A dark palette and colder season mean you can go for rich, thick, luxurious fabrics. Velvet is so on trend, and there are some beautiful dresses to take inspiration from. Velvet, heavy silk and antique brocade make sumptuous decoration for a luxury wedding.
We adore the decadence that comes with a dark palette. Dark blue, plum, Burgundy and black can all work really well, together or separately. You could even pop in a blush or peach tone to lift it. But do you dare to go black? Black wedding dresses were all over the catwalks at New York Bridal Fashion Week recently – what do you think?
