Fall Wedding Trends


The above picture is one of world renowned celebrity event designer Preston Bailey's creations. This was the ceremony area at a Fall Themed wedding/event. Isn't that just absolutely breathtaking?

The weather is cooling down and leaves are on the ground. These are clear indications that the Fall season is here. A lot of people get married during this time of the year and Fall colors are very popular for weddings. These colors consist of reds, browns, oranges, yellows, and even subtle hints of green. Let's take a look at some Fall wedding trends:

The Bride's bouquet shown above was placed in a cylinder vase and used to decorate the cake table at the reception. Aren't those Fall colors beautiful? I love how the various shades of brown adds a "pop" of color.

This Chivari styled chair is adorned with a beautiful sphere of peachy, orange colored roses. The closed rose buds scattered throughout the middle add a subtle hint of green.

The use of Fall/Autumn leaves is a very popular Fall wedding trend. Here, they are used to decorate the wedding cake and the edges of the cake table.

Cupcake Towers are the new "cake" trend. Cupcake Towers are replacing the standard cake at not only weddings, but birthday parties and other events where cake is normally served to guests. These little cupcakes with autumn leaves on top are a cute alternative to cake for a Fall themed wedding.

Favors

Monogrammed Cookies: A lot of couples use personalized Monograms throughout their wedding.


Leaf Shaped Cookies: These yummy looking cookie favors tie in well with a Fall themed wedding.

Favors are a nice way of simply telling your guests "Thank You" for sharing your special day. Edible favors are becoming more and more popular because, let's face it, most people leave "non-edible" favors on the table or either lose them or even throw them away. By giving your guests a token of your appreciation that they can eat, you can be certain that your favors will not go to waste. Most edible favors never make it to your guests' homes. They are usually devoured sometime during the reception.

And last but not least, here is an "Inspiration Board" with some more wonderful ideas for a Fall themed wedding:



If you are planning a Fall wedding, hopefully you were inspired by some of these ideas and designs.
