Fall Wedding Trends

Fall weddings are growing in popularity, with September and October dates often out numbering those in June and July!  But for those a bit skeptical about marking their date in fall, we’re happy to announce that Halloween hues are not a requirement of weddings in this season.  If you’re planning a Fall Wedding, look to these colors and trends for your celebration:
{1} Jewel Tones: Burgundy, deep purples, emerald greens, and sapphire blue.  This color combination looks beautiful with dresses of any deep fall tone, but also pairs well with natural colors.

{2} Muted Tones: Blush, ivory, and peach are emerging colors for fall.  They also compliment deeper colors like burgundy, forest green, and rust.


{3} Fall Accents: Skip the orange pumpkins and gourds and go for white and green.  White pumpkins and gourds are all the rage this season.  They look beautiful filled with flowers or displayed with candles and other accent items.  It’s a perfect way to subtly incorporate the beauty of fall on your special day.



Hot Hot Hot Wedding Trends


The Kennedy-Hickey Wedding was so much fun to work with.  Especially since all their selections were beautiful choices that happen to be hot wedding trends this summer.

As a fan of all things fashion related, I must first give a shout out to the non floral fashions that all worked together for this pretty, pretty wedding.  The beautiful bride, Julia opted for a candle light lace gown with cap sleeves, that was stunning on her statuesque frame.  For the bridal party Julia chose blush cocktail length dresses.  It was wonderful for us to kick off the summer wedding season with the fastest trending color this year.  It was also refreshing to see her embrace another new trend and style her hair loose in a partial up do.  The handsome Groom, Patrick, and beautiful weather made this the perfect Rochester Wedding Day!!


Here are some hot trends you can take away from this fabulous wedding:

{1} Limit your floral choices to 2-3 types of flowers and colors, less is more and too many varieties and colors can look busy and distracting.

{2} Blush and green as floral colors for the day can be utilized in several shades, in this combination of the brighter greens to the lightest green combined with blush and a touch of pink is a popular pairing for this summer.

{3} A combination of high and low centerpieces is the perfect look for any wedding.  The tall cylinder vases with branches paired with the low compact arrangements on alternating tables is a wonderful visual experience and also offers cost savings.


Summer Wedding Trends

Over the past few years we have been sending brides and bridesmaids down the aisle with bright colorful summer bouquets.  But the summer wedding trends are starting to shift.  We now are seeing more muted colors and brides skipping out on the traditional wedding looks for a more customized style.

{1} Colored Bride’s Bouquets: Brides are tossing the traditional all white bouquet, for something more colorful.  We love this trend, as it makes for a stand out look in photo opts.  The bouquet doesn’t blend in with the dress, but rather stands out as a beautiful bridal accessory.


{2} White Bridesmaid Bouquets: Just like brides are opting for more color, bridesmaids are opting for a muted look.  Again this is a great way to stand out against a bold bridesmaid dress, and better yet, to showcase the brides bouquet.

{4} Monochromatic: A more modern twist we are seeing is monochromatic tones.  Whether it’s in centerpieces, bouquets, or ceremony decor, weddings are going with one color.


{5} Succulents: Going with a natural vibe, succulents are popping up everywhere.  Whether its one tucked into a lovely bouquet or a centerpiece full of them, they are a perfect addition to those looking to add in a natural relaxed touch to their wedding florals.


{6} Vintage / Rustic Style: In an effort to save money and still have a wow factor wedding look, brides are turing to a more vintage or rustic style wedding.  With DIY moments, alternative venues, and tons of Pinterest inspiration, couples are opting for these unique looks to create a customized wedding.
