Fall Wedding Trends
Posted on: September 6, 2019
Fall tends to arrive with excitement in the air, and that excitement can become even more pronounced when you’re planning a fall wedding. Striking colors, natural beauty, and an almost magical anticipation are all associated with the season. Those same elements are present in the array of fall wedding trends. As the premier wedding venue in Boston, Hampshire House is always up to date with the most fashionable ways to celebrate.
Fall Wedding Colors
Delectably deep and comforting colors are always in vogue for fall. Dark plums and beckoning burgundy set the stage for a warm and regal vibe, with pastel and neutral accents adding complementary hues.
The lighter colors are often veiled with a frosty overlay, producing icy blues, misty blushes, and ivory instead of the traditional white. Such combinations create a Victorian feel, and the darker colors are indicative of the changing season while the misty pastels add a touch of romance.
Fall Wedding Flowers
Rich tones again take center stage with deep reds, ivory, and greens mingled for magnificent effects. Bouquets appear fresh-picked and artfully wild-grown with wine-colored petals, thick foliage, and delicately dangling vines. Swap out traditional tabletop floral arrangements with verdant, leafy displays. Try eucalyptus, succulents, or bay leaf branches. Add a pop of color with exotic berry sprays.
Fall Wedding Flavors
Incorporating seasonal flavors into your fall wedding is a must. Apple and pumpkin desserts work well, as do seasonal dishes highlighting the best the local market has to offer. Fresh, local ingredients create the most flavorful dishes, while classic fall comfort foods can be presented with a modern, upscale twist. Opt for a chef that can provide a customized menu that truly showcases the taste of the season, such as Hampshire House Executive Chef Markus Ripperger.
Fall Wedding Cakes
Blooms, berries and greenery again make an appearance on fall wedding cakes. The natural elements are taking the place of sugar roses and elaborate fondant designs, providing a cleaner look. Fall wedding cakes are also typically smaller than the grand, multi-tiered cakes. The wedding cake is still an integral part of the dessert menu, yet other items are likewise being offered. This is the perfect place to include apple and pumpkin pie.
Fall Wedding Reception Décor
The cooler season calls for décor that provide a warm embrace. The trend has also been building up the space between the tabletops and the ceiling. This can be done with natural elements, such as tall, leafy branches, or with tall candles and candelabras. These lighting elements provide visual appeal as well as a soft, magical glow for the festivities.
One more element to consider for your fall wedding is the venue, which needs to be as special and distinctive as you are. The premier wedding venue of Hampshire House has long been the choice for the most elegant affairs.
