Hey Guys! So I’m trying something new today.
Ever since I was a little girl I wanted to have a fall wedding (fall & winter are my favourite seasons) unfortunately that wasn’t the case. We got married in early May.
Many years married now, I still love to look at wedding magazines that feature fall wedding trends. So, I’m going to share my fall wedding essentials with you.
Cakes. Traditional cakes are fine, but why not go for something a bit more eye catching. Naked or semi-frosted cakes are quite beautiful. They have a sort of rustic charm to them. I like them because they kind of mimic the changing season, how all the leaves are falling and trees are bare.
I’ve seem these a lot lately. A bold, jewel toned coloured cake.
Flowers & Decor. 2015’s fall wedding colour seems to be this bold burgundy wine colour that they’re calling Marsala. It’s so romantic. I love it paired with bronze or copper accents.
I’m also a sucker for a long farmhouse table. There’s something very inviting about all sitting together at one long table.
Details. Fall coloured flower petals scattered down the main aisle runner. Cozy flannel blankets for your guests to wear if your having an outdoor space. Little touches like bronze pens to write the guests names on place cards.
No cheesy bridesmaid dresses here. My plan was to have elegant long dresses in either a rich blue or that burgundy colour that is so popular at the moment.
The dress!! To me, fall screams for lace or ruffles…something dramatic. A long train, maybe a sleeve…and a blinged out shoe. Let’s all take a moment to appreciate the gorgeousness of this bronze sparkly heel. Amen!
The groom. Of course the traditional black suit/tux will always be an essential, but why not try a cool looking grey suit or navy tux. Personally, I’m a huge fan of the navy tux. It’s great against any skin tone because it’s not as harsh as black. My Brit would rock a navy tux!
I was inspired to do this post by The Black Tux. Have you guys heard of them? They’re an online suit and tuxedo rental company that looks and feels nothing like your traditional suit and tuxedo rental company. In 4 simple steps you can rent a suit for your big day. And with all that money you save renting suits for the groom & groomsmen, you can splurge on a pair of fancy shoes…perhaps with a red bottom??
I really enjoyed writing this post & getting to share something new with you.
Hope you liked it too!!!
