Cranberry & Dusty Blue – The Perfect Autumn Wedding Colour Palette

Swoon alert! We’ve fallen head over heels for mouth-watering cranberry and dreamy dusty blue weddings and today we’ve put together a beautiful palette to show you exactly how to pull it off for your autumn wedding! Cranberry is a stunning deep shade that gives off a real luxurious, warm and chic vibe to everything it touches. For bouquets particularly, a variety of berry shades look amazing and can add real texture to your look. If you’ve a bit of a Gothic edge, berry shade nails and lips are a real statement for autumn/winter and always look incredible in photos! Dusty blue is the perfect shade to soften a loud cranberry, and works surprisingly well with it without coming across as too overpowering. We love a dusty blue for the groom’s suit, and as the base of a pretty tablescape (gorgeous greenery with cranberry flowers as a ‘runner’ looks amazing to finish it off – see below!) and of course for beautiful bridesmaids dresses. For more inspiration, check out our moodboard below!
