With the weather cooling down and the leaves changing colors, fall is a beautiful time of year to get married. While the rich autumn colors of red, yellow, orange, and brown are always in style for a fall wedding, new trends are emerging as brides look for new ways to put a special touch on their big day.
Popular Wedding Trends for Fall 2019
For the past few years, one of the most popular wedding trends has been the “naked cake.” These cakes use significantly less frosting than traditional wedding cake designs. In fact, the sides are left completely bare, allowing for the cake’s texture and filling to be seen. The result is a beautifully simplistic design.
This fall, brides are putting a new twist on the naked cake by choosing to serve “translucent cakes.” Translucent cakes have an incredibly thin layer of icing spread around the edges. This allows for just a bit of the cake to show through. Typically, these are served with minimal decoration – often just a small bunch of flowers or greenery placed on top. The cake can also be dressed up with a drizzle of caramel or chocolate ganache.
Save Room for Dessert
Wedding cakes have been a highlight of the reception since the 17th century. But today’s brides are breaking tradition by serving smaller cakes. Instead of tiers stacked high, couples are choosing to serve a smaller wedding cake alongside other tasty treats. One of the most popular dessert options for this fall is pie. It’s fitting, since before wedding cakes came into style, it was believed that eating pie at the wedding ensured a happy life for the couple. Another trend that has grown in popularity in recent years is a dessert buffet, with an assortment of pastries, candy or even ice cream.
Here Comes the Bride
Everyone looks forward to the big reveal of the bride’s wedding dress. Many brides getting married in fall 2019 are opting for two-piece separates. By layering a dress with something like a cashmere sweater, brides can customize their look while staying warm in the cool autumn weather. The trend of purchasing a second dress to wear at the reception remains quite popular. This allows the bride to wear a full ballgown for the ceremony, while picking out something more practical for dancing to wear to the reception.
A Natural Bouquet
When it comes to bouquets, natural looking arrangements are still the top choice for fall 2019. Rather than using perfectly arranged bouquets, many brides prefer larger bouquets that are more loosely arranged, often with unconventional flower choices. Some of these bouquets are filled with green, leafy plants like eucalyptus, acacia or succulents. Beautiful blooms are then used as a pop of color. Wine-colored dahlias are particularly popular this year.
