Autumn 2017 Wedding Trends
There are some classics when it comes to fall weddings; Pine cones, fairy lights, deep burgundy and Marsala tones, and decorative gourds. What’s so lovely about a fall wedding is incorporating the warmth of the seasonal hues into the event. These trends are classic and, I think it’s safe to say, will never go out of style.
One thing we absolutely love about autumn weddings is the use of natural wood throughout the decor. Tree stumps, pine cones, and even wooden crates help create earthy accents, which match any colour palette– from rich warm fall hues to icy blues, pastel pinks, and classic greenery.
Fall also lends way to play with richer neutrals, subbing in a bold navy or deep gray for men’s suits, instead of the usual black or soft gray you see more often throughout other seasons.
Now let’s check out the top 2017 Autumn Wedding Trends:
In the form of dark blue suits or shades of stormy blue bridesmaid gowns, blues seem to be taking centre stage this year. These shades of blue match perfectly with the Pantone colour of the year trends for fall, pictured at the end of this post for inspiration.
Classic Deep Red
Autumn calls out for deep, rich burgundy and merlot tones and fall 2017 is no different. These tones are making an appearance, but mostly in decorative accents and floral details, instead of bridesmaids dresses like we are used to seeing.
Gold accents are back this fall! Summer saw a highlight of rose gold and copper, but gold brings a certain warmth to palettes of stormy blues and grays that are perfect for fall weddings.
Continuing on with the trend from summer, greenery is holding strong for decorating flourishes and bridal bouquets. It’s simple, beautiful and matches with everything. Greenery backdrops for when you say I do is still trending our way from summer into fall, as well! While greenery is still a popular piece, floral touches in bold fall colours, or adding these greenery accents to macrame, make this trend stand out from summer.
Naked cakes and almost-naked cakes see their peak in fall this year! Decorated with floral touches to match the bouquets, these simplistic styles of cake are hitting all the blogs and Pinterest idea boards at every tap of a screen or click of a mouse!
Donuts, Tacos & Signature Drinks
These trends are ones we hope stick around! What a fun way to incorporate so much personality into your special day! Donuts and donut boards have been popping up everywhere this year and the trend is sure to continue into the fall. It really doesn’t surprise us to see tacos everywhere– tacos have been mainstream this year from ‘will run for taco’s’ attire to taco cell phone cases! Signature drinks and homemade beer are appearing at every turn, making weddings even more memorable.
Branding your wedding is becoming more and more popular with every wedding season that flies by. Branding your wedding is more than just a colour palette and set of flowers, it’s a logo and signature designs that flow from your invitations into the wedding day details like favours and decor. It’s a beautiful trend and with sites like Canva, creating your own aesthetic is easier to do than you’d think.
Our roundup of trends leaves us anxiously anticipating the autumn weddings we are honoured to host this upcoming season. We are looking forward to working with our all-inclusive soon-to-be wed couples to bring these beautiful touches to life for them.
