Inspiration Board: Autumn Mist

August 12, 2009

I am working with a new bride who has opted to marry in late November, which I’m thrilled about.  Here in New Orleans, we have two lovely months of weather each year….November and March.  Those months are mild and gorgeous in the bayou.  All other times of the year are either scorchingly hot or freezing cold. 

Candice loves the idea of a vintage inspired wedding, so I threw this inspiration board together to help her during the planning process.  I find that Autumn weddings generally have the same color schemes, incorporating the faithful deep oranges and reds that are so popular for Fall.  However, I encouraged Candice to use those same colors, only a little more soft and muted.  Here’s what we came up with.

To keep colors like these from feeling too summery, incorporate textures such as raffia and wood and heavier fabrics, as well as alternatives like using wheat in your florals.
