This post shows you the best burnt orange wedding theme ideas.
Before we jump into this one I want to be very clear… I love a burnt orange wedding theme, especially in the fall.
There’s something about this moody sunset color that just feels like a gorgeous color theme for a wedding.
I’m not saying this color should stay a fall color, because orange works year-round, but in this case, I want to share my thoughts on using this theme in all seasons but especially fall.
Burnt orange in the fall
The color works well in most color combinations because it brings a sense of warmth and togetherness which makes it ideal for the wedding scene.
This color gives a warm feeling which allows you to pair it with cooler colors this fall like navy or green.
It will give a natural fall feeling.
The leaves are changing, and this will be the perfect color to host a sundown ceremony to match the gorgeous colors of the sun.
Tips for a fall wedding
There are a few things that can feel uncertain when you’re planning a wedding in general so here are a few tips to keep in mind when planning your wedding this fall.
- Work with what is in season (don’t pay extra just because something is out of season)
- Always keep in mind that blankets are possibly necessary. The night is becoming chillier and you don’t want to have a perfect night ruined just because people didn’t plan accordingly. Make a designated blanket spot for your guests to grab something to keep them warm.
- Lose the roses for gorgeous in-season flowers such as Dahlias, Marigolds, or Sunflowers.
These simple tips can help you figure out some minor details within your wedding.
It’s the small things that can make the biggest impact on a wedding.

5. Olive and orange table settings
