South Asian Bridal Fashion - Fall 2016

Fall is here in Seattle. Summer seemed to fly by as it usually does, and now we’re back to good old rainy, overcast weather. With the change of the seasons comes a shift to a more subdued color palette, even for weddings.  I don’t know how you feel about fall and winter weddings, but I think they can be done really well.

Pantone’s fall palette is an excellent source of color inspiration to draw from for fall and winter weddings. The theme is based around the concept of strength, confidence and complexity.

“Transcending gender, these unexpectedly vivacious colors in our Fall 2016 palette act as playful but structured departures from your more typical fall shades. Blue skies represent constancy as they are always above us. Grays give a feeling of stability, Red tones invite confidence and warmth, while the hot Pinkish Purples and Spicy Mustard Yellows suggest a touch of the exotic.”
Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute

Those deep reds and pops of color are a lot of fun to play with when planning a South Asian wedding. Today we’re going to look at some of my favorite colors translated into bridal style for Fall 2016.

Aurora Red

Aurora Red is a favorite of the fashion community. It’s bold, it’s warm, and it’s endlessly dynamic. As a traditional bridal color, you really can’t go wrong.  

 Dusty Cedar

Dusty Cedar is like a fall friendly pink. The dusty rose is a subtle and warm bridal favorite perfect for brides who want to branch out from the traditional color scheme without going too far off the beaten path.

Lush Meadow

This gorgeous green is the ultimate in elegance. It’s vibrant and sophisticated, and a fun color to wear for your Mehndi or Sangeet.

Spicy Mustard

Another zesty addition to a traditional color palette, Spicy Mustard is an earthy and almost neutral take on brighter yellows.

Warm Taupe

Looking for a true neutral to ground your color scheme? Warm taupe is a classic that helps ground with a timeless and feminine taupe.


Here’s that pop of color you were looking for! Bodacious is a gorgeous purple that is surprisingly sophisticated and versatile. It looks great with neutrals or other brights for a really exciting palette.
