Welcome Back!

We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to Lake Tahoe after the recent Caldor Fire. Thanks to the tireless work of all the front-line heroes and agencies who worked to protect our town and forests, Tahoe South is open and thriving. It’s the perfect time to secure your wedding date!

Fall is an incredible time of the year to get married in South Lake Tahoe! From the leaves changing colors to the slight nip in the air, fall feels both romantic and peaceful. But what about colors for fall wedding décor and attire? Fall weddings aren’t all pumpkins and hay bales. Check out these ideas for fall wedding color inspiration that make your wedding anything but predictable.

Anything goes for a modern wedding, so try not to focus on making everything too matchy-matchy. Don’t feel you need to be tied to one main color for your wedding. Instead, focus on several colors that work well together and tie them together for your overall fall look.

Bring on the navy

Navy blue is an unexpected color for fall that naturally pairs well with so many other shades. Navy bridesmaid’s dresses look stunning next to gray groomsmen’s tuxes with matching navy ties. Added bonus? Navy blue looks good on everyone, so your bridesmaids will look stunning — and love you for the choice. If navy blue feels too basic bring in a pop of color with your flowers, using deep tones and a bit of blue to tie the whole scheme together. Navy looks surprisingly great with certain shades of green, too. Picture a wedding on the Tahoe Queen with navy as the main color, brightened by gorgeous white flowers and accented with a bit of apple green. With the crystal blue waters of Lake Tahoe as your backdrop, navy blue would be a stunning choice.

Go green

Green is enjoying a bit of celebrity status, after the announcement that emerald green was the Pantone Color of the Year for 2013 — and it’s still going strong. Greens can be vibrant or subtle, depending on the shade. An apple green is stunning when paired with navy blue, while the dramatic jewel tones of emerald green and eggplant make for a gorgeous color scheme. If you aren’t sure about green as a main color, bring it in as a secondary shade with your flowers and table décor. Planning an outdoor ceremony for your fall wedding? South Lake Tahoe puts on a show in the fall, and the contrast of the fall colors against the evergreen trees is amazing.

Traditional fall tones, updated

Even if you aren’t a fan of pumpkins, rich tones of orange and yellow or rustic shades of brown evoke the feeling of fall in all of us. Choose fabulous fall colors but take them up a notch to be more modern. Add chunky necklaces to bridesmaids’ dresses or try shorter dresses for a less traditional look. Don’t have a favorite fall tone? Choose a dress for your bridesmaids that is available in several fall colors, then let them each choose their own color. Love all things pumpkin? Go ahead, bring them into your décor. After all, it’s your special day.
