Fall is right abound the corner and I can’t wait to see the changes in foliage and temperatures. I’m also looking forward to swooning over the fall trends that brides will incorporate into their wedding day. If you aren’t familiar with the 2017 fall wedding trends, today’s blog will bring you up to date…
Trend #1: Jewel Tones
A great way to incorporate jewel tones in your wedding is your groom’s attire. Many of the looks you’ll see will have the groom in the rich toned tux, while the groomsmen sport a black or gray tux. The only rules that apply here are to use your creative juices to achieve your desired look.
Trend #2: Naked Cakes & Scrumptious Pies
All frosting is not created equal, and these days, less is more! This understated but modern trend is for couples who want more drama in other areas of the reception versus it being about the cake. If you really want to make a statement, go for pies. Having an assortment of pies as your dessert will really have your guests talking. If you’re a southern belle like me, any pie with apple, peaches or sweet potatoes is a winner.
Trend #3: Bridal Dresses with 2-Pieces and Long Sleeves
Cooler days call for long sleeves, but don’t worry, the materials designers are using this season will give brides more playful or dramatic looks that will have your guests drooling over your wedding day look. If you are less traditional, the trend of wearing a two-piece is perfect for you. Don’t be afraid to add a little color with your look or play with textures. Remember, the only rule is to be creative!
Trend #4 Whimsical & Wild Flower Bouquets
The flower trends for fall call for rich colors, add-in’s like small twigs or natural fibers, berries or green leaves of various shapes and sizes. To really add a dramatic flair to your walk down the aisle, be sure to tell your floral designer to add wine colored flowers to your bouquet and table arrangements.
Trend #5: High and Rustic Reception Spaces with a hint of Calligraphy
Bring the outdoors in with greenery, which will add depth and height to your reception space. Mix and match your foliage for a play on texture and hang longer centerpieces to add warmth to more industrial spaces. For a touch of romance use calligraphy to welcome your guests or on the menu cards for a more personal touch.
