Fall Wedding Trends: What We’re Excited To See This Season
The best season to have a wedding relies entirely on the bride and groom. Each season has its own unique appeal, and taking advantage of the season’s characteristics you enjoy most can make your wedding feel more personal and closer to your heart. If the shifting colors of fall is your favorite season then you’re in luck because we’re sharing some the fall wedding trends that we’re most excited for this season – we hope you’re as excited as we are!
Subdued yet elegant, velvet accents create a more natural feel that works perfectly with the jewel tones of fall. By using velvet as an accent, your guests will notice the attention to detail and appreciate the personal touch you’ve given your décor. There are tons of subtle, and not so subtle, ways to incorporate velvet into your fall wedding decorations but a few of our favorites include:
Velvet ribbon accents on wedding programs and menus
Decorated chair backs and furniture
Table settings and centerpieces
Ribbon in the bouquet
With many plants reaching the tail end of their growing season, fall gardens take on a slightly wild appearance that is less pristine, but even more breathtaking than its summer and spring counterparts. Instead of a traditional bouquet with every bloom clearly placed to perfection, a bouquet that resembles a handful of freshly picked wildflowers is a fall trend that fits the season. For that wildflower feel, the accents are just as important as the flowers. Accents like small vines, small leafy twigs, berries, eucalyptus, and acacia can make your bouquet appear hand-picked from the seasonal selection.
When attempting to create a particular atmosphere, lighting is crucial; making it no surprise that some of our favorite trends include unique lighting design. Wow your guests with capiz shell chandeliers and mixed pendant lighting, embrace minimalism with exposed bulbs, or make your wedding a magical experience with fairy lights. You can also opt for more subtle options like basket lanterns and tapered candles.
Keeping things simple removes unnecessary distractions and allows you to focus on the aspects you truly love. When it comes to your wedding, a minimalist approach puts the emphasis on the bride and groom, keeping guests’ attention on the events at hand while still giving them the opportunity to appreciate the modern design. With wood tables made of maple or chestnut, you can skip the tablecloth and accent them with a simple centerpiece like succulents (or velvet!). Some carefully placed greenery around the venue intertwined with the natural colors of fall foliage radiates class and is a modern fall wedding trend that is guaranteed to age well.
One of the things that make fall so stunning is the abundance of natural colors. Looking outside can feel like staring into a work of art, and in fact, has been the inspiration for many great pieces. This fall, you can create the same dramatic effect at your wedding by utilizing rich, deep, dark colors that inspire a sense of grandeur such as emerald green, stiffkey blue, scarlet or slate gray. If you really want to get into the spirit of fall you can even combine two of the seasons hottest trends by featuring love seats with velvet upholstery in moody hues, creating a picture-perfect scene of seasonal luxury!
