Fall Wedding Trends to Keep in Mind for Your Rustic  Wedding

A rustic wedding can be as beautiful, elegant, and romantic as a traditional white wedding.  Add Fall to this combination, and you can achieve wonders, but don’t get over zealous and throw in too much. Sometimes, the rule of less is better actually applies. There are so many lovely flowers and potential decorations, it is a temptation to keep adding until you lose the look you were trying to achieve.

Fall trends this year are exciting! Though we could get lost in these trendy offerings, we will concentrate on rustic weddings. Gown colors are exciting this year—think mauve or pink. Of course, white is always gorgeous for any wedding or add your style and choose a Fall color. Earthy hues and rich jewel tones like purple, green and red set the mood for a bold autumn wedding. For instance, chocolate bridesmaids’ dresses are popular for Fall and combine well with gold, off-white and taupe.

Picture this color scheme: Mint, silver, umber, and royal purple. The trend to off-the-shoulder gowns continues this year.

For Fall, pie is the dessert of choice, and miniature food is trending this year. Consider your options like cherry, blueberry or apple. Mini pies make great wedding favors. Or set up a pie table where guests can nibble or satisfy their sweet tooth as they leave the reception.

With dessert, serve appletinis. Made with vodka and topped with chocolate syrup, they are a tasty addition to the end of the night. Another similar idea is to have individually wrapped caramel apples with names and table numbers as escort cards. Your guests will enjoy this treat.

Fall offers a wonderful selection of flowers. What do you think of a red and yellow bouquet decorated with mini-pumpkins? Or white roses with splashes of deep crimson and gold leaves with lots of greenery. A rustic bouquet with garden roses, fiddle fern, and other rich autumn colors is a beautiful choice. For an autumnal mix of flowers include orange, yellow, and white. Imagine a vibrant, colorful bouquet in shades of orange and red, accented with fiddle fern. Out is the tightly bound, ball-like bouquet, and in are floral bouquets with textured greenery, vines and spiky blooms and berries.
