Perhaps we’ve been scorned one too many times sitting through a ceremony in the scorching heat, or maybe we’re leaving the summer season for bachelor and bachelorette parties and other travel festivities. Overall, it is clear the fall season has sky-rocketed to become the most popular time to host a wedding. October has been at the top since 2016 when it surpassed June as the most popular wedding month (then tied with September). More and more couples have also opted to host their wedding ceremony outdoors in recent years, and the autumn months bring many benefits to this like the temperate weather and beautiful foliage. The busy wedding season has shifted later in the year, and these real weddings below display the season beautifully giving further proof that autumn is arguably the most beautiful season to host a wedding!
Fall Wedding Inspiration
Fall Wedding Attire
When it comes to autumn attire, you can really pull the best of the summer and winter seasons and get away with almost anything here! Warm or cool color palettes, velvet or linen fabrics, and colorful or neutral flowers will fly! There are no official rules, but a classic autumn wedding is inspired by nature’s changing atmosphere. Shades of reds, yellows, and oranges, or colors reminiscent of fall leaves, are classic to an autumn wedding color scheme. Adding jewel tones of purples and greens compliments the traditional fall colors as well. Don’t forget about the groom too! Pops of color to the groom’s and groomsmen’s suit attire can take your theme to the next level.
Types of Fall Wedding Florals
This wedding season has some of your most whimsical bouquets with pampas grass, wheat, seeded eucalyptus, or even berries. There are various types of dried flowers and grass that can bring fall vibes to your florals like phalaris, glixia, and lagarus. We promise these foreign-sounding words are the real deal! Sunflowers as well as Billy Balls are also popular choices for fall bouquets too. The vibrant yellow looks stunning when paired with reds and oranges.
Fall-Inspired Centerpieces & Decor
You might not necessarily want your wedding to feel like you’re walking into a fall craft show, so when it comes to decorating for an autumn wedding, you have to be tasteful and true to elegance. Lead with florals (dried, real, or faux) to help achieve a more romantic look. Don’t forget that lighting can set the mood and candlelight can pair beautifully with the rich colors that autumn has to offer!
