Fall weddings occur during a small window between September and November. They offer the opportunity for a magical and romantic night filled with delicious food, beautiful decor, rich colours and beautiful photos to remember the perfect night.
With fall quickly approaching (sorry Summer lovers!), here are a few trends we see for those upcoming Fall weddings.
1. Lots of Leaves
Putting leaves in your wedding bouquet not only fits the season, it is actually a cheaper alternative. Having more leafy items usually results in a less expensive bouquet price compared to more flowers. So, throw as much leafy items as you can in your bouquet - it looks beautiful as proven by the photo below!
2. Long Sleeve Dresses
We are obsessed with this wedding gown trend at BridesMade. Long sleeve dresses are the returning trend. This style of dress is elegant while allowing you to still have whatever style bodice and train you would like.
3. Leafy-Coloured Dresses
For Fall wedding colour schemes always stick to the colours of Fall leaves and you can't go wrong. Bring in different shades of greens, reds, and dark neutrals to achieve that perfect fall look. BridesMade offers the most beautiful Fall colours for bridesmaid dresses.
4. Apple Cider Drink
Apple cider is a delicious seasonal drink you should definitely take advantage of! We have chosen our favouite apple cider alcoholic drink recipe to share with you; Spiked Apple Cider from ayearofcocktails.com
To make 1 drink, you will need
- 6 oz of warmed apple cider
- 1 oz of vanilla vodka
- 1 oz of butterscotch schnapps
Using a heat safe cup, pour in the apple cider. If the cider is cold, microwave it for approximately 30 seconds. Mix in both alcohols and stir. Now, add some apple slices or cinnamon sticks as garnish. Voila!
5. Dark Lipstick
Dark lipstick is a fad that started a few years back but has held it's spot in the makeup world -- and we think its beautiful! Fall weddings call for darker accents of colour compared to the Spring. Dark reds are a super prominent colour used for Fall weddings along with tints of a lighter red or black.
6. Pumpkin Accents
Including pumpkins in your wedding decor is a great way to hold the Fall wedding feeling, specifically if your wedding is in October. Pumpkins are very seasonal and offer adorable cost-friendly decor. You can use them as centerpieces, wedding favours, candle holders, random decor and so much more!
7. Leaf-filled photo-shoots
Getting married in the Fall means you have the best photo opportunities ever! Rather than having to worry about bringing props for the photos, you have nature. Falling, colourful leaves offer a beautiful and dramatic background for photos.
There you have it, 7 of the best trends for your Fall wedding!
