Wedding Colors

Our wedding is in the fall (11-11-11) and I've been having a hard time deciding what colors I would like to do. I have it narrowed down to a few, but just can't decide!

Option 1: Hot pink/fuschia and chocolate brown- Because pink is my FAVORITE color and I would love to be able to incorporate it somehow. Though, I'm not sure if this really goes into my fall rustic/picnic type of theme, especially since I was intending to use candy corn for my favors.  Here is the only inspiration board that is kind of what I'd do for a fuschia and brown wedding.

Option 2: Orange and brown. I love this idea because I totally love anything pumpkin related. Seriously... I heart pumpkins. This would go well with my theme and outdoorsy/pumpkin decorations. My main issue with this one is that I haven't seen a lot of orange bridesmaids dresses that seem to be the right color. A lot of them look like neon orange and I'm just not sure that's the color I want to go for... and I don't know if that'd look good on all the bridesmaids. I had contemplated putting the bridesmaids in brown dresses with an orange sash or something. But that also presents a possible problem since my groom and groomsmen are wearing brown tuxedos. If they are all wearing brown, then I feel like the browns need to match, which could be difficult to do. Here is a picture of a pumpkin inspired wedding I love... and a partial picture of bridesmaids in brown dresses and a groom in a brown tux. (I've been saving pictures I found on the internet for a long time, so I'm not sure where I got most of these from... but if they belong to anyone who reads this, let me know and I'll give you credit. Sorry)

Option 3: Purple, orange, and brown- I like the way the really dark purple looks in pictures, but purple really isn't one of my favorite colors. I mean, I like it.... just wouldn't normally be my first choice and I'm also concerned about the wedding looking too "summery" when I'm going for the autumn look. But I like the idea of being able to put my girls in purple dresses and then give them orange flowers, like these pictures.

I'm completely indecisive.... you'll learn that if you keep reading. I apologize in advance.

I love that shade of pink with the brown! What about if you still incoporated pumpkins by painting them white or ivory? The painted pumpkins are gorgeous & so chic!

I like the purple and orange combo!
Also the pink and dark brown.

I'm also getting married 11.11.11! At first I wanted dark brown and something to go with a fallish theme...but I said, what the heck, this is my wedding and I do what I want! That opened up the options a bit. Now I'm going with black and white with accents of red.
