A very classy wedding could be: Ivory and Black or Burgundy and Black. Fall colors are pretty as well: what about: Chocolate Brown and Ivory??? simple this way your flowers and any accessories for wedding party and reception would coordinate well. If you select a "color" palette for attire it's much harder to coordinate other things for the wedding/reception. JMO!!!!!!

I think darker colors would be pretty for a fall wedding..like burgundy or a dark purple or even a dark green.

This might help some:

David's Bridal has a neat feature where you can see dresses in different colors:

I agree! I love brown and pink together.
I also like Royal blue which can be a fall color.

Chocolate brown and pale pink is a nice combination. I really love that burgandy/eggplant color for the fall, too.

Chocolate brown with pale pink is awesome! Pale blue looks awesome with it as well as an accent color. We did black, white, hunter green and silver for our 10/7/06 ceremony.

Jewel tones are fantastic that time of year as well!

It actually looks good. I have seen chocolate bridesmaid dresses paired with the black tuxes. I love the color combo, plus you can get creative with the groomsmens outfits

Some of the tux places actually have chocolate brown suits, including pinstripes, which are hot!

Our wedding was in November, and the colors were royal blue and white. That chocolate brown and ivory sounds wonderful, though.

Nikki--it was gorgeous! She originally wanted brown with robin's egg blue but eventually went with pale pink. Our dresses were two pieces. A long A-line skirt with a wrap tank styly top. My husband wasn't in the wedding but he wore a pale tan summer suit and a light green suit and darker green tie. That looked nice too.

I really like the idea of the brown,ivory. Maybe with the pale pink as accents? I have to get used to the idea of brown for the guys though. I think to those are the top choices for colors.

Darn near everything goes with a black tux. It's hard to mess up a tux.
