Terracotta Wedding Trends for Fall

Collection of Terra-cotta themed items for a wedding such as bridesmaid dresses, flowers, wedding invitations, color swatches and table settings

Fall Weddings are something special. There's nothing like them. Everything from the weather to the scenery creates peaceful and cozy sensations. One thing that is exceptionally noticeable in fall is the colors. All the reds and oranges blended together with yellow/brownish undertones. Hey, that's Terracotta ♥. This unique color trend is not to be missed and is the epitome of fall. We've collected some of our favorites for this fall theme for you to add to your wedding inspiration.

Bridesmaid Dresses in Terracotta Shades

A big trend overall in bridesmaid dresses is the Balyage of Shades for the girls (Pronounced BAH-LEE-AHGE, this French word means "Sweeping"; regarding colors it means to go from light to dark). Choose colors ranging from taupe or a rosy peach which are lighter to burnt orange and earthy clay which are much darker. A more traditional style of bridesmaid dresses are one color overall which can be just as beautiful, and will truly showcase your wedding palette.

Terracotta Inspired Wedding Cakes

Adding in this color palette into your wedding cake is incredibly easy. You can make it very noticeable with bold orange and crimson shades, or you can have your cake feature softer tones like with paler shades of taupe and relaxed blood orange hues. Both styles of colors lend themselves to fit into a very fall, bohemian vibe and will fit right in with this fall trend.

Wedding Florals

Flowers are the best way to show off your wedding colors. You can add in similar or complimentary shades into your bouquet and table decorations and they will always look stunning. Florals can add a touch of color to otherwise neutral designs in a beautiful way. To add terracotta here, bright bursts of orange, rust or red weave well into white flowers for a cool color combo. Adding in more subtle tones like blush pink and sunset orange with pampas grass is a boho bride's dream.

A Pop of Color with Terracotta Shoes

This is such a subtle but perfect way to incorporate terracotta into your wedding. Blush pink and burnt sienna show the shades of this trend in a really unique way and they'll add a little something special to your wedding look. Matching these colored shoes with your flowers or table decorations is incredibly easy and will be that nice little touch that showcases fall wedding style at its finest.

Terracotta Colored Napkins

Another great way to use this color is to incorporate it into your table settings with napkins. They add a fresh contrast of color to neutral plates or settings, and are easy to add in. Try mixing and matching or coordinating them with other items on your reception tables to put this color front and center.
