Cornucopia of Color: Pantone’s Fall 2012 Color Report

Posted on September 18th, 2012 by annalemberger

There is a magical moment, every year, when I wake up to nature’s color symphony; when leaves make their last stand in a shock of vibrant hues that shout “look at me!” before falling to the earth. Fall is so full of color inspiration it may be hard to know where to turn when choosing the perfect fall wedding colors. Fortunately, the color experts at Pantone have released their Fashion Color Report for Fall 2012 – a great guide for what is trending this season. While some of the usual autumn suspects are included, like Honey Gold, French Roast, Titanium, Tangerine Tango, and Ultramarine Green, there are some unique standouts. Olympian Blue is a bright choice that would pair well with Honey Gold or French Roast. Rhapsody and Pink Flambe are also quite lovely and add a feminine touch to any color scheme. But it is Rose Smoke that tops my favorite color list this fall. It’s like a soothing whisper – barely there, but oh so lovely.

Sage Wedding Inspiration

Posted on September 5th, 2012 by annalemberger

Throughout history, sage has been the go-to herb for curing several medical ailments and warding off evil spirits. One old saying even asks, “Why should anyone die who has sage in their garden?” A mighty herb indeed! Along with its amazing prowess as an herb, sage provides wonderfully earthy color inspiration for an autumn wedding. Pair sage with golden hues for an added elegance. Get creative with sage by including the fragrant leaves in the bridal bouquet and boutonnieres. Plus, you can feel confident knowing no evil spirits will be walking down the aisle with you!

With the fall wedding season right around the corner, it is time to start finishing off the watermelon and pulling out the gourds.  This summer’s hot and steamy weather makes it difficult to even think about the cool, crisp air and brilliant colors of autumn. But with record high temperatures this summer many fall brides are probably excited for a little cool weather as they walk down the aisle.

Falling in Love: Autumn Wedding Inspiration

Posted on October 21st, 2011 by annalemberger

Close your eyes. Inhale the crisp fall air. Drink in the last remaining warmth of the sun’s rays. Imagine yourself surrounded by loved ones, a multitude of brightly colored leaves creating a dramatic backdrop for your perfect autumn wedding. As the season’s change, so too does your life as you vow to love, honor and cherish your significant other all the rest of your days. My our fall inspiration board “leaf” you falling in love with a fall wedding.

The Details: Colors surround you this fall. Look to nature for a color palate of blazing reds, burnt oranges, rustic yellows, forest greens, birch whites and maple browns. Let candles illuminate your space with a deep, romantic glow. Have your guests leave their thumbprint on a canvass tree as a memory of your special day. See an example below from a real wedding.

The Drink: For your signature wedding reception drink, try the Corzo Ruby Red. Cranberries and cinnamon bring a tart and sweet element to this bright red drink.

The Music: Wedding Music Unveiled suggests brides opt for more subdued music for their ceremony in Fall. Visit their site for a list of autumn inspired song suggestions.  From My Wedding Music you can download and listen to a compilation of beautiful fall music from the CD The Harvest.

My favorite find is a list of best and worst wedding songs for fall from Gig Masters. Best song, Autumn Leaves (Frank Sinatra); Worst choice Hazy Shade of Winter (Simon & Garfunkel). And now you know.
