5 Fall Wedding Style Trends We Love
Fall has finally arrived and here at Loverly, we’re all about Fall weddings. The air is crisp, the colors of nature are riveting so photos look extra fabulous and the food is particularly comforting. Below, you’ll find some of our favorite Fall trends for your upcoming autumnal wedding.
While we adore sleeveless wedding dresses and the opportunity to pair them with something cozy (like a cashmere shawl) there’s something about long sleeve wedding dresses that is too chic to pass up. Long sleeves can come in the form of lace or a two-piece separate, which is a huge bridal trend that has practical benefits too (no one wants the bride to freeze at the altar). Style maven Olivia Palermo’s wedding get up – a white cashmere sweater tucked into a full tulle skirt by Carolina Herrera – definitely comes to mind.
We’re accustomed to seeing pastels and neutrals at weddings, which is definitely timeless and classic. But we also love a darker palette…think plums, burgundys, hunter greens and such to reflect the naturally changing surroundings. Supermodel Karlie Kloss used this palette for her recent wedding!
Roses in wedding bouquets are fine but don’t they feel a little…overdone? If you’re getting married in the fall, why not consider a dramatic bouquet with dahlias and amaryllis? Table settings can reflect the season with wheat greens, leaf branches and pops of color via berries.
Speaking of table settings, we love copper tablescapes for Fall weddings. Whether you use copper flatware or plates or even chairs, we think copper is the perfect autumnal metal, especially when paired with a candlelit setting. Just imagining the copper reflecting candlelit candelabras makes us swoon. Bonus points if there is a fire pit involved for extra cozy vibes!
We get excited when we see a hearty pasta dish or a pot pie on a restaurant menu when the temperature dips and think this would work equally as well on a Fall wedding menu. It’d definitely be a welcome departure from the chicken-and-two-sides or the steak and potatoes options. Cocktails like a spiked apple cider would get a party turnt faster than you can say “I Do” and we’re fans of this Blackberry Thyme Bramble cocktail recipe (see below):
Ingredients: 1 ½ oz. of The Botanist Gin, 1 oz. of Cointreau, 1 oz. of fresh lemon juice, 3 fresh blackberries, and 2 thyme sprigs
Directions: Combine all ingredients and ice in a shaker, shake then double strain into a coupe glass and finally garnish with a thyme sprig
