Autumn Weddings

As of September 22nd, it is officially fall!!  Here are some seasonal trends to incorporate into your big day:

Colors

Fall is the perfect time to bring bold colors to your palate. Warm berry tones, paired with bright sunset hues and subtle greenery are a must. Here are a few autumn color combos to consider:

Burnt orange and navy. Picture your bridesmaids in this quintessential autumn color accompanied by the groomsmen’s classy navy suits.

Autumn red and deep teal with caramel/copper accents

Dusty orange and sage. Make it pop with bright gold accents

Raspberry, maroon and sage. (These colors are especially flattering in floral arrangements.)

Similar to color schemes, this fall it’s all about bold, especially in accessories. When planning the perfect look, don’t forget to consider flower crowns, shoulder duster earrings, forehead bands, crystal chokers, hair vines and  decorative combs. 

Floral

Loose wildflower arrangements are this season’s trend. Dahlias, Chrysanthemums, and asters are a must in any autumn bouquet. (They’re in season, so they’ll be more budget friendly) Of course you can never go wrong with classic red poppies, yellow roses, orange air plants and grapevine. Pair these with thistle, ivy and leafy twigs for a fresh, natural style. For tabletops, consider adding combinations of succulents, eucalyptus, wheat greens, acacia and bay leaf branches. Or, for a more unique option, incorporate fall fruits and vegetables like crabapples, ornamental cabbage, mini pumpkins, gourds, and peppers.

Decorations

When arranging your reception décor, don’t forget to build up, and utilize more vertical space. Use tall candles and lanterns, or place displays on cake stands to give them little extra height. To bring autumn style to your ceremony aisle, layer rustic wooden crates and top with blooms, fruits, vases, and pumpkins (real, and wicker.) If the wedding is outside and closer to sunset, line the aisle with lighted lanterns paired with floral bunches, greenery and pumpkins. (Put tealights inside pumpkins to add more light.)
