November 2011 Weddings

Another color question...

So my favorite season has always been fall, because of the colors. My favorite color is ruby red, and I wanted to incorporate it. But I don't want to go too "fall." I'm being a little quirky and wearing red shoes under my dress. That will happen, no matter what. So I want them to stand out. What are some suggestions for color palettes that will compliment the fall season without being too fall-ish? I don't want pink, or green.

My wedding will be vintage-esque, I'm looking for an antique white dress, and the house I'm getting married in is 200 years old. The ballroom walls are baby yellow. (The reason I throw that in is because my original thought was red, black and white but it seemed really harsh in that room.)

Re: Another color question...

  • Gray?  I love gray, it goes well with the yellow in your ballroom, looks beautiful with red, and is a very cool color.  One of the girls on SB is doing gray and a reddish color for her wedding this November and it looks beautiful.
  • i agree with pp red and grey will look lovely together.  alternatively gingerbread brown or cofee brown will bring a warmer shade and will also compliment the yellow room, or if you still like the black and white bit how about doing red with damask accents?

  • Lavendar and red? Or is that too springy? I saw it on MarthaStewart.com.

    I've seen red and champagne, red and silver, red and plum, and red black white. I really like the red, slate gray, steal gray combos as well.
  • I'm having a fall wedding..and I'm actually going with like a slightly darker red and champagne..I think that makes it look vintagy.

  • I think red with damask accents would look sooo beautiful and vintage.  also you could use an ivory too.  I would just google it and you will get many ideas.

  • I have seen a lot of beautful damask accents and linens! That would be pretty. The gray is a good idea too. Thanks ladies!
