PW Newbie who needs color advice!! :)

Hey everyone, My fiance & I just booked our dream wedding venue in Lake Placid NY for fall of 2014.... I am having a very hard time with colors... although i love the "fall colors" along with purples eggplants etc. we have somehow got stuck on this idea of Charcoal Grey Suits & Bridesmaid dresses that we like & to not take away from the fall foliage... then we wanted to do the flowers, girls shoes & mens socks in an Orange color... but I find myself going to the "coral" hues, as I dont like pumpkin orange.... what are your thoughts/ opinions on Charcoal & Coral in the fall?? Thanks in advance!!!


-ashley, PWNewbie :)

Hi Ashley,


Welcome to PW!  I think you can definately do that.  Coral is still orangey i think it will work for you or even peach.  Have you found any inspiration photos?

Welcome to PW and congrats on your engagement.  I think that coral and charcoal grey would be a beautiful combination, and with the backdrop of Lake Placid, PERFECT!!!


Here are some inspiration photos I was able to find.

Welcome to PW!!


The other ladies have already found you some great photos, and I agree that those are gorgeous colors!! Don't worry about any rules - there are none with stuff like this!! It's YOUR day, do what YOU want and what makes YOU happy!! You may find yourself having to repeat that a lot throughout the planning process :)


I also had a fall wedding and I did lime green and bright pink with tropical stargazer lillies, I remember being worried about the same thing until some awesome PW'er pointed out that my wedding should be a reflection of me and my DH, regardless of the day/month, etc. HTH!!
