10 Fall Wedding Trends for 2016
Our favorite ideas for this year’s autumn events.
If you didn’t know that slinky, sheer dresses were in for fall before Beyonce’s VMA dress, you certainly know now. Definitely for bold brides with a strong sense of style, you can choose if you want to brave sheer with or without nude lining.
One of the most impactful fall wedding trends is how the events embrace warm, romantic lighting. So whether you are inside surrounded by candles and Edison bulbs or outdoors with hanging branch globes, the goal is to create a welcoming, glowing environment.
Gone are the light flavors of citrus and summer fruits. Autumn events favor decadently rich desserts, such as this wedding cake drizzled with salted caramel and decorated with figs.
Indoor & Outdoor Spaces
Particularly in the early weeks of fall, it’s a shame to host your whole event inside when the cool, crisp evenings can be so lovely. If you can, choose a venue that allows you space both indoors and out, and also treat guests to warm treats like hot cocoa to keep them perfectly comfortable.
Dahlias & Mums
Fall is a great time to expand your flower choices beyond roses and peonies. We’re loving fall wedding trends that show centerpieces and bouquets filled with beautiful dahlias and chrysanthemums.
This is the season of warm-toned colors, from orange pumpkins to dark yellow leaves. When you choose mismatched bridesmaid dresses for your fall wedding, consider a range of warm-toned neutrals and metallics to match.
Today’s autumn weddings don’t have to have the season’s traditional palette of oranges and browns. Instead, check out the latest in dark color schemes, with deep jewel tones, grays, and rich blues.
The latest in homespun details aren’t necessarily the rustic ones we’ve seen in seasons past, but rather, items that seem very personal and nostalgic. Shown here are bags of biscuits and jam handed out as wedding favors, ensuring no guest needed to go to their hotel’s meager continental breakfast.
As autumn begins, we’re starting to see inventive ways of incorporating greenery into tablescapes that is distinctively different from summer weddings. With an abundance of wreaths, swaths, and runners like this one created from rosemary and other herbs, we’re big fans of this trend.
Don’t totally leave traditional fall wedding details like pumpkins and leaves behind. Simply find ways to seamlessly include them into your more modern decor. This stunning autumnal bouquet used deep red maple leaves.
