Fall wedding season is among us, here in Chicago the weather has cooled, the leaves are starting to change; it’s a nice time to get married. Lets look at some of the trends that people will be seeing this wedding season.
Colors: Purples, Gold, and Browns have always been popular fall wedding colors this season is no exception. This season people are using rich jewel tones instead of a plain color hue. All white weddings are also popular with hints of pinks and purples.
Flowers: Dahilas are the big flower this season; literally they can reach up to 10 inches. Don’t worry there is also a mini version that can be used for boutonnieres. This season is also intorducing the never before seen chocolate brown rose. For all those Brides that love brown and roses, you can finally have both.
Reception: The current trend is cozy, people are doing couches, rugs, even throw blankets. People are doing more long tables (kinda like the ones you do for those huge family dinners), but they are adding a lot of texture to them. They are keeping the centerpieces low so everyone can see each other when they talk.
Cake: Food flavored cakes are the IN thing this fall season. Pumpkin spice and vanilla bean cakes are very popular. People are keeping the designs simple either designed after their dress (think the royal wedding cake) or bright fall flowers.
Wedding Dress: While strapless will always be the number one dress, dresses inspired by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge are the big thing. Which of course everyone saw coming. Brides are going for dresses with sleeves, lace and, of course, full skirts.
Food: Family style in a traditional sit down dinner is what everyone will be seeing this season. Don’t be surprised if you see some warmer drinks showing up during cocktail hour. Natural seasonal foods are also big right now, foods with pumpkin and apple in them.
Stationery: Most things will be nature inspired with some lace for an elegant touch. Don’t be surprise to see more eco-green papers being used.
Fall weddings this year are all about comfort, natures, and modifying trends. Wedding right now are really all about family, friends, and com
