Fall Trends

With the end of summer near and fall on the horizon–here’s a look at what’s definitely in this season. Although garden style bouquets are still popular, the flower of fall is the peony. Available in a variety of colors, these go-to florals make the fall wedding cozy. To compliment the peonies, subtle tones are also in style–so avoid bright oranges and blues. For the fall bride, opt for paler tones such as blush or beige or go dark with aubergine or maroon. One surprising trend for fall is the return of the short wedding dress. Designers like Reem Acra are making spectacular short dresses that let you strut your stuff while still getting a beautiful wedding dress in the process.

The Silver-Studded Wedding

It may be true that all that glitters isn’t gold, but give silver a chance and it will add instant glam to any wedding. Crystal embellishments help to add refinement to a table setting, while also creating a classic, clean setting for your guests to enjoy. Add pops of studded silver to your big day attire,  like the Swan Satin Pump by Manolo Blahnik to carry out your silver-themed soiree. Add touches of crystals to your silver decor to create drama–use crystallized pieces such as table numbers and dimly lit candelabras for the “wow” effect.

Jewel Tone Touches

Jewel tone color themes are the latest way for the modern bride to convey a sense of lavishness and elegance. Sapphires, rubies and emeralds all add a rich color texture to your decor. Even transforming your lighting can add a dramatic effect to your reception area. A simple way to see the jewel tone color scheme at its finest is using them in your floral arrangements. The reds, blues and deep purples pop when bunched together and create a cohesive look in your bouquet.
