The sea­son is beloved by brides and grooms for good rea­son. Not only is the weath­er usu­al­ly pleas­ant, but the rich autumn col­ors make for a beau­ti­ful back­drop for pho­tos. Those hues can also be a great jump­ing off point when decid­ing on the col­ors that will make up your big day. Remem­ber, what­ev­er you choose will impact every­thing from the invites and flow­ers to the décor and, of course, the bridal par­ty attire. So before you start build­ing your own wed­ding day suit or tux, take a look at five of the hottest col­or trends for this fall.

The 2020 Pan­tone Col­or of the Year—Classic Blue—is a per­fect base col­or for a fall wed­ding, says Mary Angeli­ni of Key Moment Films. And our Gen­er­a­tion Tux Cus­tomer Expe­ri­ence team has also been see­ing many requests for Mys­tic or Navy blue suits, which can be com­bined with a vari­ety of col­ors for that per­fect look, includ­ing Mer­lot, San­gria or Hunter Green.

Deep pur­ple, plum, and vio­let are hot com­modi­ties for fall col­ors this year, says Eddie Zarat­sian of Eddie Zarat­sian Lifestyle & Design.  “We’re see­ing vary­ing gra­di­ents of these col­ors being used, and even paired with a warm marigold to bright­en up the atmos­phere. These deep hues look best with an array of tex­tures and metallics—gold accents and vel­vet, for exam­ple!”

Rich and bold jew­el tones—reminiscent of the foliage that make fall such a gor­geous season—can cre­ate a tru­ly mem­o­rable col­or scheme. “My favorites right now are shades of cream and brown with pops of jew­el tones: emer­ald, ruby, amethyst,” explains Lind­say Par­rott of P3 Events. “All are strik­ing with­out being over-the-top.”

Don’t feel like you need to stick with tra­di­tion­al fall col­ors for your big day. Ole­ta Collins of Flour­ish­ing Art Design Stu­dio sug­gests choos­ing bold­er hues such as yel­low or even a cream­si­cle orange into the event—and both can be used with more sub­tle tones to make them fit the sea­son.

Cou­ples look­ing for a more mut­ed, but still stun­ning look, can start with a grey base (think an Iron Grey suit). This neu­tral can be paired with what­ev­er col­or desired. For exam­ple, does the bride love pink? Grey and blush make for a roman­tic pair­ing, while opt­ing for hot pink leads to a tru­ly show­stop­ping duo.
