While summer may be the peak of wedding season, autumn weddings follow closely behind. The changing leaves and cooler temperatures inspire some gorgeous ideas and today we’re sharing the most popular current fall wedding trends as well as some autumn wedding ideas that promise to grow in popularity in the future.
Rustic weddings have been all the rage for a few years now and this popular trend shows no signs of letting up. Outdoor ceremonies and barn receptions continue to be popular choices while decorating with burlap, lace, and wildflowers continue to be both cost effective and on trend.
Accenting with Succulents
Succulents are showing up everywhere-from bouquets to centerpieces, even as wedding favors. These inexpensive and easy to care for plants promise to be the next big thing in weddings.
A vintage, shabby chic style is also very popular in weddings right now. Consider adding French Country type decor with intentional distressing and overflowing flower arrangements, usually in pale pastels or whites.
Serving a wedding signature cocktail at the reception is a unique way to showcase the personal tastes of the bride and groom as well as a fun talking point for guests. Many wedding venues and bartending services offer this option as it gains in popularity.
A Great Gatsby type of vibe is what many brides are looking for these days. Think glamorous and over the top when planning this kind of wedding—rent a museum hall or other large venue and look for art deco elements that scream glam yet tasteful and elegant.
Photo booths are quickly becoming a must have at weddings and events. Rent one for your reception or DIY your own backdrop and props and encourage guests to post photos on with their smartphones using a special hashtag!
A “Smaller” Menu
Gone are the days of gigantic wedding cakes and elaborate large plates for dinner. Today’s weddings are opting more and more for tapas style appetizers and finger foods over heavy dinners and cupcake and candy displays instead of large cakes. Keep it light to give your wedding an up to date vibe.
