As sad as we are to see summer go, we couldn’t be happier to indulge once again in the beauty of autumn! We’re starting this fabulous fall season with a new color crush of brown and cranberry.

Color Crush: Brown & Cranberry

Reveal the Season
Introduce your seasonal wedding theme by sending autumn wedding invitations that reflect your specific fall wedding style. You may want a traditional fall design or perhaps the two of you enjoy a more contemporary look and feel. Either way, Invitations by Dawn has plenty of fall wedding invitations to choose from. We decided on a nice mix of traditional and contemporary with the Graceful Leaves Invitation — the falling leaves design is classic but the ornate pattern adds a touch of modern flair.

Falling for Color
The magic of autumn lies in its color palette, and how you choose to display these colors will determine whether your guests fall under the spell of this beautiful season. We recommend choosing one or two vibrant autumn colors and pairing it with a rich neutral like chocolate brown or forest green. The cranberry bridesmaid dresses shown here are perfect for a fall wedding, especially when paired with lush bouquets to match. Dress the men in dashing brown suits and your bridal party will not only look amazing, they’ll feel amazing!

Keep Falling
Continue your wedding colors throughout the ceremony and reception. Centerpieces of red, orange and fuchsia flowers in square brown vases keep the cranberry and brown color scheme going while still incorporating a mix of classic and modern design. Guests will surely fall in love (as we have) with this simple wedding cake in chocolate brown embellished with brilliant autumn leaves. Even the canning jar wedding favors are accented with brown satin ribbon and personalized favor labels to match!
