As the autumn leaves display their vibrant hues of red, orange, and gold, and the crisp air announces the arrival of fall, it's an ideal season for planning your dream wedding. One of the initial steps to set the tone for your big day is choosing the perfect color scheme for your wedding invitations. Fall offers a diverse and rich palette, allowing room for creativity. In this guide, we will explore five distinctive wedding invitation designs and color schemes that capture the essence of the season, making your fall wedding invitations truly exceptional.
1. Rust and Dusty Blue:
Create a stunning fall wedding with our Sloan invitation design, which beautifully pairs the warm, earthy tones of rust with the cool, calming hues of dusty blue.
This striking contrast captures the cozy and tranquil essence of fall, making it an ideal choice for rustic or bohemian wedding themes. Consider making rust the primary color for your invitations while adding dusty blue accents in fonts, borders, or envelope liners. Sloan's elegant monogram and classic serif fonts, available in our flat printing collection, effortlessly blend timeless aesthetics with a touch of modern elegance.
This design is perfect for couples who want a clean and sophisticated look, allowing the beauty of their love story to shine through in every detail.
2. Olive Green and Gold:
Choose a timeless combination of olive green and gold. Olive green is often overlooked, but it’s certainly highly recommended! Incorporating green into your color palette––even as a base for your floral arrangements––will give your wedding day natural elegance. For more of a regal and sophisticated look, we also like to recommend combining it with accents of gold metals, mustard florals, and some citrus fruit for additional color.
If you’re someone who appreciates elegant simplicity, our Priya wedding invitation design are a perfect choice to pair with this color combination and theme.
Featuring a harmonious blend of a simple serif font and a delicate flourish monogram, Priya embodies understated and timeless aesthetics. Available in our flat or letterpress printing collection, Priya is the perfect choice for those seeking a clean and minimalist look, allowing your love story to shine at the forefront.
3. Copper and Terracotta:
Embrace the allure of the metallic trend by combining copper with the warm, inviting tones of terracotta. To place additional emphasis on the warmth of this beautiful fall wedding color scheme, we also recommend adding in some other mixed metals, like gold frames for your table numbers or brass candlesticks on your reception tables.
When looking for the perfect wedding invitations, we recommend a design that complements the romantic look and feel, but also lets your bold color scheme take center stage. Our Ophelia design combines a large delicate calligraphy-inspired font, for the couple’s names, with a petite serif, for the rest of your wedding information. It is the ideal choice for couples seeking to infuse their wedding invitations with timeless romance and sophistication, which will create a captivating and memorable celebration for all.
The stunning collection can be adorned with a vellum jacket, rosewater or cinnamon belly band, and a gold wax seal to make everything on your wedding day cohesive. Choose from classic cardstocks and print your text in cinnamon, to add a touch more luxury to your wedding stationery.
With Ophelia, your invitations will beautifully set the stage for a captivating and memorable celebration of your love story.
4. Navy and Burgundy:
For timeless elegance that transcends seasons, consider the classic color scheme of navy and burgundy, with gold or metallic accents. If you seek something a little more on the modern side, rather than the romantic combination of copper and terracotta, our Florence invitation design is the perfect choice.
Displaying a bold sans-serif font and a clean, simple border, Florence makes a powerful statement in your wedding invitations. It also offers a sleek and contemporary aesthetic that appeals to couples who prefer a minimalist design.
Florence radiates modern sophistication, creating an atmosphere for a wedding celebration that seamlessly merges style and simplicity, so it’s a perfect fit for your classic navy and burgundy wedding.
5. Muted Neutrals:
For a chic and modern approach to fall wedding invitations, consider a palette of muted neutrals. Soft gray, beige, and taupe combine to create a tranquil and understated aesthetic. Elevate the simplicity with subtle texture, achieved through letterpress or embossed details, to make your invitations truly exceptional.
Among our collection, our Gemma design stands out as a symbol of timelessness and simplicity. This suite is ideal for couples who appreciate refined elegance with a touch of grace. Gemma blends a simple serif font with subtle script elements to create an inviting and delicate design.
Featured in our flat printing collection, Gemma is also available in letterpress and can be personalized in 30+ colors. It offers a clean and contemporary look, setting the stage for a wedding celebration filled with effortless charm and timeless sophistication.

Whether you choose the striking contrast of rust and dusty blue or the timeless elegance of muted neutrals, your unique color scheme will reflect your style and the magic of a fall wedding.
