When we think of weddings, we so often think of summer. With more hours of daylight and warm weather that allows brides to be comfortable in sleeveless dresses, most couples prefer a summer date for their ceremony. We serve weddings in every season and so this season we’d like to make the case for the often-overlooked fall wedding. Fall has a wonderful palette of color to work with– warm and fiery tones of changing leaves and misty backdrops from cool evenings provide a cozy and inviting aesthetic. Plus, who doesn’t love an apple cinnamon cocktail! We would happily sip on any of these delicious fall cocktails.

When it comes to your wedding wardrobe in the fall, the classic white bridal gown can go with any color choice and is particularly stunning against the vivid colors of fall. If you are looking for a dress that is decidedly more fall-centric, but without abandoning traditional style, you can incorporate dress options such as this ivory and muted pink dreamy lace backless dress from Reformation. For some of your youngest guests, the tulle skirt on this flower girl dress from Princessly provides a fun fall option. Bridesmaids can have the fun and vibrant options that will pop during the fall season, or dark blues will provide a rich backdrop for fall flower bouquets, like this sleeveless sheath gown from Beryl Couture. For the men, suits in navy blue or shades of gray look particularly sharp in the fall.
To create an earthy fall table arrangement, try taking elements from nature, such as pine cones or freshly fallen leaves, and preserve them as table decorations. We love the whimsical table decoration in this blog post from Wedding Chicks. The overflowing flower arrangements interspersed with colorful squashes brings to mind the image of the horn-of-plenty, a cone-shaped basket representing the bounty of a fall harvest.
The array of flowers that blossom in fall offer many opportunities for beautiful bouquets, from bright and exuberant to understated elegance. This slideshow from Martha Stewart Weddings displays the spectrum of floral arrangements that celebrate the colors of fall.
Fall weddings offer the opportunity to mimic the brilliance of a forest of changing leaves, or the quiet beauty of a slate-gray sky in October dusk.
Whether your palette is gold with deep red or soft pink with dark green, fall offers so many gorgeous colors to choose from.
