My first love when it comes to color schemes is actually fall colors. I love the warm colors: red, burnt orange, all shades of brown from beige to chocolate to clay. I love gold and warm greens like sage. All those colors are in my home, and they make me feel comfortable.
1. I want a wedding during summer vacation.
2. Adam loves purple.
3. I don’t like fall colors next to white.
First I tried to think of how I could incorporate red, brown, and orange into my theme and end up with it still looking like August wedding colors.
I decided that above all, I wanted orange, since it's more cheerful and less cliche than pink. Plus there were plenty of orange flowers in the photos of August wedding colors I found. Now, at first I felt scared, because orange and purple sound like clown colors. But I thought since both colors have some red in them, my third color could tone down the contrast if it was a variation of red. Since deep rose red (as much as I like that color) was more for winter winter weddings than for August wedding colors, I decided on a deep coral instead. The three colors together are very vibrant, but don’t overpower each other so they’ll be elegant. The orange will make it feel warm, but the vibrant colors are more summery, not too fall like. And I could use gold or champagne with chocolate brown as a neutral.
