With fall in full swing, it seems that everyone is embracing Apple picking, pumpkin lattes (pumpkin everything for that matter), sweater capes and of course fall colors. One major fall component that seems to be lacking this year is the traditional fall weddings.
Our fall brides have always been eager to embrace the fall season by incorporating the rich fall colors, seasonal blooms and sneaking some mini pumpkins in there somewhere. However, this year, were truly seeing a shift, in that brides seems to be reaching for the softer side of fall.
So what does this mean? It’s less of the rich fall colors like shades of red, orange, amber, browns and hints of yellow and more of the creams, blush, greens and a pop of burgundy for good measure.
We started to catch on to this trend last year, when the majority of our 2015 fall brides came to us with wedding inspirations quite different than what we expected for the autumn. We were also thrilled to be breaking the fall flower mold a bit!
Now that the fall wedding season has almost come to an end, we notice that across the board, brides all over have decided to go in a different direction this year. It’s still easy to achieve a fall vibe at your wedding without a literal translation and an apple at every place setting.

What we’ve seen, used and recommend is incorporating elements such as berries, vines, in-season blooms like Dahlias and fall fruits like Figs, Apples and even Pomegranates. A pop of color is never a bad idea and we loved using pops of muted orange, cranberry and everyone’s recent fav, blush.
As for the beloved mini pumpkins that were somewhat of a cliché, try using white instead of orange. It’s a bit more unexpected and of course, softer.
