The wedding extraordinaires over at TheKnot (who have graciously voted Ponte Winery in their “Best of Weddings” list since 2008) always know what’s new – and for that matter, they know what’s old, borrowed and blue, too! So, when it came time to feature the year’s most exciting trends for the fall season, we turned to them.
Certain elements will always be popular for an autumn wedding – warm colors and comfort foods, for example. But every year and every season we see trends that make us think, “Now, why didn’t we think of that sooner?”
Here are just a few things TheKnot is spotlighting for autumn…
Colors – Many brides start to plan their weddings by selecting a color scheme. From there, it’s easier to choose flowers, bridesmaid dresses, cake and décor. Deep purples, burgundy, and – surprise! – copper are making appearances.
Rich, warm colors are perfect for an autumn event. Deep purple, burgundy… and of course wine!
Cake – Goodbye, buttercream roses and fondant folds. Au revoir, intricate sugar flowers and gum paste fruits. Hello, translucent cakes! Taking it one step above the trendy “naked cakes” of last year (where the sides of the cake are left unfrosted), a translucent cake has the thinnest layer of icing swept across the sides, giving the most glorious of all pastries a minimal, effortless and oh-so-chic look. It’s like the messy-hair bun version of cake: it says, “I’m gorgeous and I didn’t even try.”
Dress – Naturally, it’s all about the look, but this season, we’re seeing brides consider functionality as well. I mean, it’s fall, which means it’s cooler. Rather than sport goosebumps while trying to smile for their photos, brides are wising up by opting for sleeves. They warm the chill and look extremely elegant. Plunging necklines continue to rise in popularity, as well.
Food and Drink – Mixing and matching has never been so delicious. For years, couples have selected a specific theme when it comes to their reception meals: classic French, Asian fusion, American comfort, etc. More and more, however, brides and grooms are embracing the fact that it’s their day, and eating whatever their hearts desire! Barbecue bars next to sushi chefs alongside fried chicken and waffles isn’t weird, it’s fabulous… and delicious. Just be sure to offer a wide selection of wines to cater to all these flavors!
