Wedding Trends for Fall

Wedding Trends for Fall


Fall; the time of changing leaving, pumpkin flavored everything, scarves, and deep colors. For many, it is their most favorite time of the year, and a quite popular time to get married.

Whether you are attending a wedding this fall or planning a wedding of your own, here are some of the upcoming trends you will see within the next few months. If you are a bride putting together the details of your big day, hopefully this will help you make season appropriate decisions for your wedding!

Happy Planning!


A moody range of plum and burgundy are leading the way in wedding color schemes. Although pastels and neutral accents are a popular color scheme for summer and spring, these colors still act as great complimentary colors to accent the deep-rooted colors. The dark hues are reminiscent of the naturally changing surroundings, while the weathered pastels add just a touch of softness and romance.

To make the final touches and to bring everything together, add touches of metallic. Reflective metallics have brightening qualities that add depth and unity to any color palette. The hottest metallic this season? Copper.



Fondant designs and sugar flowers scream summer time. Heading to fall, couples are opting for a clean, textured look, dressed up with small bunches of blooms or greenery.

Translucent cakes are similar to the trending naked cakes we saw heavily in 2016. Instead of totally bare tiers, translucent cakes have a thin veil of frosting with just a bit of the cake showing through giving it a slightly “wooden” feel to it.

As we have seen over the past year, wedding cakes are becoming more obsolete and couples are choosing unique desserts to serve to their guests, while simply ordering a top tier for them to do a traditional cake cutting ceremony for photos.

For fall months, opt for pies!  Nothing screams fall more than individual pumpkin or apple pies. Get smart and double these as their party favors to be budget friendly. Or order blueberry or boysenberry pies for the color and display them on a beautiful table for extra décor!



Rather than chalk board or metal, stay with warmer tones. Use wood for custom signage to ring in the fall.

If your wedding theme is more formal, go for tall candles and ornate candelabras to add warmth and comfort to your dinning tables. If you want to keep things rustic and natural, bring the outdoors in with leaf-adorned branches. Beautiful, traditional color-changing leaves act as their own décor whether you scatter them around tables, use them as your aisle décor or even leave them on branches and incorporate them into your centerpieces.



The off-the-shoulder wedding dress trend is carrying strong through the summer months into fall. However, fall calls for lace and more long-sleeve styles. You will also see 2-pieced dresses, to add a touch of sex-appeal to any dress. As for the bottom half, we will see cascading ruffles, intricate lace detail, and fully tiers skirts.

To bring your color palette into your look, use deep colored flowers to your hair or pair your dress with a bold statement, deep, warm lip.



In addition to the linens and décor, floral arrangements are the best way to incorporate a color scheme into your wedding. Succulents, eucalyptus, wheat greens, acacia and bay leaf branches are all great fall choices, plus they are in season. Additionally, rather than blooms, pops of color are provided by berries like Brazilian pepper berries, hypericum berry sprays or raspberries.



Craft beer, cider, and coffee will for sure please your guests! Maybe even hot chocolate for the kids. Whatever you decide, make it an interactive station because any sort of interactive station is always a big hit with your guests!
