When it comes to your wedding, you know the colors matter. The right colors make all the difference in the world, and further, the right colors that are season appropriate make even more of a statement about your wedding.

It can be hard to keep up with what’s hot and what’s not when it comes to wedding trends – it feels like wedding colors, dresses, groomsmen attire, and theming seem to change almost constantly. Adding picking the right colors to your already-hectic-wedding-stress can seem like a nightmare, so we took care of some of the color selection for you!

If you’re looking to get married in Fall or Winter of 2018, we’ve taken care of some of the hottest color choices for those seasons. Check out our favorites for 2018 and listen up to what JJ’s House Designer Jessica has to say about the latest and greatest wedding color trends for 2018.

Fall Colors

Fall weddings are glorious occasions. With the beautiful, crunchy leaves outside, the changing colors, and the crisp weather, it’s one of the best seasons for a wedding. That being said, it can also be a hard wedding to theme. There are already so many rich, beautiful colors happening outside that you want to make sure you’re not clashing with the season.

If you’re looking for a glowing palette, consider colors like coral, champagne, and marigold. This will help to add warmth to what could be considered a chilly autumn event. That being said, it won’t clash the way that Spring colors will.

“This palette is a dreamy set-up for an Autumn or Fall wedding because it can provide an organic, yet lush feel,” said Jessica. “It plays perfect with the early fall breeze and provides you with a glowing warmth that could be missing from a Fall event.”

Winter Colors

Let’s talk winter colors. Winter weddings are a treat because they can feel luxurious, elegant, and sophisticated in a way that warmer-weather weddings simply don’t. That being said, it can be tough to determine the perfect color palette for a winter wedding, especially if you’re trying to stay away from a red-and-green Christmas feel.

We suggest playing around with golds, steel grays, dark navy, and even champagnes for your winter wedding. They can provide with the icy, elegant look you’re going for, but also can give you splashes of warmth (enter the gold and the champagne) that aren’t overpowering or too spring-time-bright. We certainly suggest working with navy and gold together, as they’ll over a plush, lounge-y, and elegant feel, particularly when paired with subtle metallic accents throughout the venue.

“These hues are the perfect way to channel a clear winter night sky,” said Jessica from JJ’sHouse. “It’s hard to beat a classic navy on its own, but when paired with a warm gold and metallic accents, you have the icy, sophisticated look you’ve probably always dreamed about for your winter weather.”
