The Fall is just around the corner. If you are a bride with an October wedding date, this is an the time of the year to have an traditional wedding with more rustic touches. You have far more colors to chose from. Be inspired by orange, burnt yellow, deep reds, purple, browns and pine green. These colors are great when they are paired together. It is a wonder time to use jewel tone colors and create a mystical wedding that is warm and full of character.
The brides dress can still be white and strapless but if you add a lace jacket, similar to the one Kate Middleton wore, will give the dress two looks. One very formal for the nuptials and take the jacket off, you now can dance into the wee hours. The jacket will add a very classic look and also keep the bride warm on a cool fall day. Bridesmaid dresses can be accented with orange or a satin gown in deep purple gives a full color to the wedding. Instead of diamonds necklaces and earrings, the bridal party can be adorned in rich jewel tone colors. If you really want to be daring chocolate brown dress with fuchsia accessories is hot this year. Don’t forget the Groomsmen. Instead of the traditional black bow tie, they too can wear a splash of color.
Autumn gives you an opportunity to pull in textures from your surroundings especially if you are going with a rustic or vintage style wedding. You can add berries, apples, pine cones and peasant feathers. Your reception decorations you can use pumpkins, corn stalks, and fall leaves as an elegant touch. Beautiful mulch-colored chrysanthemums or sunflowers can be placed around adding vibrant colors. Adding some burlap and cinnamon sticks is a nice touch to add in a little muted colors and stay on the rustic theme. Using pine cones or picture frames made out of twigs is a great idea to place cards.
Floral arrangements can really be to used to make things pop. Again, you have an opportunity to use bright jewel tones or muted fall colors. The brides bouquet can bring her and her bridesmaid dresses together, as well as the reception venue. Burgundy LA Hybrid Lilies, Burgundy, Orange, and Terracotta Roses, Calla Lilies, Orange Peruvian Lilies, Hydrangeas, Craspedia with sprigs of Dusty Miller. Put these together with a satin ribbon and you will have a beautiful bouquet or centerpieces.
