Fall-Winter Wedding Colors

by Erika Woelfel

Lucky me, I’m attending an event this weekend for a friend who is getting married! There is always something incredibly romantic about the harvest season for a wedding. Because I’ve been privy to some of the artistic details my friend has planned, I can’t wait to see the final results.

– Metallic gold replaces silver for a touch of elegance.

– Twigs and leaves adorning the table top make the occasion less formal.

The color of falling leaves, accent tones are bronzed and sultry. Deep ruby makes an ‘80s comeback for 2012/13.

made with rich velvety textures.

– Jeweled accents for table top in sapphire, ruby and moody plum-violet.

– Floral arrangements are dark, featuring burgundy, blood red or dark purple roses.

– Sequins, feathers, glitter and layers of shimmering fabric adorn table top accessories.

– Crystal chandeliers shimmering overhead.

Straying from convention, jeweled blue in sapphire or navy is accented by cool aqua.
