The leaves are changing and the scenery is the perfect backdrop for your Fall wedding.  Check out some of our favorite Fall Wedding trends–bold accent colors, natural and organic decor, dinner served family style, and naked cakes.  Coordinate these trends with your tuxedo accessories and bridesmaid dresses.

Pump up that color! — Go bold with saturated jewel tones and earthy shades to  create a color-rich palette for your wedding.  Mix colors such as emerald green and rich chocolate or combine nature and leave-inspired oranges and reds with a deep purple.

Move over Burlap! —  Though burlap and lace continue to be a huge trend, wood grain, foliage and fern motifs are gaining popularity.   Acorns, leaves and garland are other motifs making a statement this season on invitations, escort cards and menus.

Mmmm…Comfort Foods! —  Instead of going with the typical plated dinner or buffet-style, what about allowing your guests to dine “family style?”   This unique dining experience allows your guests to dig into large platters right at their table.

Light it up! —  Create an intimate feeling with candlelight—and we mean lots of candlelight!  Line the aisle, adorn your tables, hang them from trees…Candles are an inexpensive way to create a romantic and charming ambiance for your reception.

Back to Basics! —  Simplify your cake and skip the dramatic sugar flowers and intricate details.  This season simple textured buttercream adorns some of our favorite cakes.   Also big this season… Naked cakes…or non-frosted cakes layered and filled with fruit preserves.
