Fall for These Fall Wedding Trends
Hi y’all! Fall is officially here, so I hope everyone is ready for sweater weather, hot drinks that make you happy inside, and the general joy that accompanies the fall season. In addition to the fabulous sceneries and photo opportunities, there are tons of fun, easy, and pretty ways to incorporate the fall aesthetic into your wedding day. Read on for 6 trends of the season that will have everyone ~falling~ in love with your wedding!
AUTUMNAL WEDDING INVITATIONS
Before your wedding day even arrives, set the mood with playful fall-inspired invitations. Hand-painted looks are popular and chic, although there are countless ways to incorporate the fall feeling into your invitations. Check out Rifle Paper Co. and Etsy for fun ideas that will have your guests counting down the days in anticipation!
Fall may be the best season to have an outdoor wedding, with cool temperatures and changing landscapes. No wedding venue is more “fall” than an orchard. You can take stunning photos among the leaves as they change colors, and enjoy the natural beauty of the season as you celebrate with loved ones.
(SEMI-) NAKED CAKES WITH DELICIOUS DECOR
Your wedding cake is a perfect way to embrace fall trends with guaranteed deliciousness (who doesn’t love flavors like apple, cinnamon, and pumpkin?!). Semi-naked and naked cakes are going to be even more popular this season, so embrace this trend while also working in seasonal flavors and getting creative with edible garnishes.
WELCOME THE SEASON WITH AUTUMN-INSPIRED DRINKS
Guests will love enjoying seasonal cocktails and other cool-weather drinks like hot apple cider and hot chocolate while socializing at your wedding. Give your cocktails an extra sparkle with garnishes like cranberries, star anise, orange peel and cinnamon!
FOOD AND DRINK STATIONS
Get guests into the spirit of the harvest with customizable, high-variety food and drink bars. Drinks like the aforementioned apple cider and hot chocolate can be jazzed up with butterscotch, cinnamon, whipped cream, and salted caramel. Include something like this beautiful mini-pie station from which there are multiple flavors for guests to choose. Other ideas for bountiful displays are cheese and charcuterie boards, wine and cheese tables, and caramel apple stations. Encourage the fall festival feeling with multiple stations - get creative!
FALL FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS AND BOUQUETS
Incorporate rich fall colors into your bouquet and centerpieces to set a seasonal vibe for the ceremony and the reception. Dark shades of reds and purples are always a favorite, and fiery shades of orange look brilliant with sunflowers towards the end of summer.
