If you’re planning to host your nuptials in the fall, you may have a very particular vision in mind. Maybe you specifically chose the season for the crisp weather or because you had an autumnal theme in mind. Or, potentially, you wanted a summer wedding, but there was no availability until fall.
Whatever your reason, one fact can be established right off the bat: fall is a beautiful time of year to get married. Not only does the season lend itself well to many different dress styles and color schemes, but there are a variety of trends that make fall 2022 especially exciting. Whether you’re in the early stages of planning or getting ready for your big day in the coming weeks, here are some exciting and of-the-moment additions to keep in mind.
With its darker skies, fall may seem more like wallflower season. Yet, current trends dictate that fall 2022 brings with it one of the most exciting and engaging trends of all: bold, vivacious, radiant color palettes that brighten up the entire day. Everything is rich, fearless, intense, and memorable.
What’s lovely about this trend is that it’s easy to incorporate in so many different ways. You don’t necessarily need to have a rainbow palette across the board, nor do you need to wear something other than the glorious white dress of your dreams. However, you could easily add a few pops of radiant color courtesy of strategically placed floral arrangements. Just imagine the statement The Magenta will make on your tables or in your hand as you walk down the aisle.
It may be challenging for everyone on your guest list to travel to a destination wedding right now. In the interest of sharing this special day with the people you love the most, you might consider hosting your special day at a location that’s more convenient to the majority of people on the list. Fall also makes a lovely time of year to enjoy the crisp weather, so you might have a change of heart based on the beauty of the season alone.
Look to locations that may not have been on your radar before. It might be a spacious park featuring a lovely floral arch where you can exchange your vows. If there’s a lake or a beach near you, that could also be an option on a day when the winds aren’t so heavy that they disrupt the festivities.
If you prefer a single color palette to a multifaceted one, you might consider crimson — one of the richest and most engaging shades imaginable. You’ll see that red alone is a huge statement-maker this season, and in its many forms, it has the potential to transform your ceremony. The color will pop in pictures, and it’s easy to implement in different ways.
You can branch out in other ways, too, especially if you like the idea of a fiery color but want to touch on a different variation of red. Try something with an autumnal tinge, like pumpkin, rust, copper, burgundy, or wine. All fit nicely into this rich and warm family — and it’s incredibly easy to implement it into your ceremony, too. If you’re looking for something elegant and striking for a bohemian-style wedding, try The Heath. It’s a vision in crimson, with fluffy pampas grass commanding immediate attention in its shapely golden vase.
The Tara is another highly expressive statement arrangement that’s designed to bring the beauty of radiant red to your special day. It dazzles with its array of roses and ranunculus coupled with other accent flowers. Another option is The Autumn Garden, a wonderful ode to all that makes the season so obviously beautiful.
Maybe your wedding was postponed for a couple of years. Maybe you’re ready to make that fantasy a reality. Whatever you have in mind, consider implementing some fairytale-inspired lighting to your special day. Twinkling lights strung from above can have an instantly magical effect in any venue, whether you’re having your wedding in a hall or in a barn. The very addition of some beautiful lights can set the tone for the spirit of the day and transform any space into a romantic vision of loveliness.
There are other ways to implement interesting light fixtures, too. Incorporating multicolored lights on strings is an eye-catching way to draw attention to a particular area, like the table where you and your new spouse will be seated. Exposed bulbs are just as popular, striking a rustic tone that lends your outdoor wedding an even more natural and down-to-earth quality. If you have something grander and more ornate or elaborate in mind, consider hanging vintage chandeliers to make an opulent statement that you, your families, and your friends won’t forget.
A hand-adorned touch can make an already personal event feel even more special. You’ll appreciate the way even the smallest details come to life when you add something customized to them. Consider, for example, hiring an artist to create beautiful couples-themed artwork for your napkins, plates, invitations, candles, and other accents.
If you’re planning to welcome your guests to the event with a sign at the entry, the artwork can play a prominent role right from the start. Then, incorporate it elsewhere throughout the event to create a cohesive design that’s sure to make you both smile every time you see it. Hand-painted artwork feels special, too, and is truly something one-of-a-kind that can make all the difference to the ways in which you remember your special day.
There are no rules set in stone determining what you have to wear on your wedding day. Maybe you’ve never quite fantasized about the traditional white dress. Maybe you’ve just always had a different vision in mind for yourself. Anything goes — it’s your day, after all, and this fall 2022 calls for you to express yourself precisely as you wish.
That might mean incorporating an unusual addition, like a vibrant floral applique on an otherwise simple dress to create some visual intrigue. You might even opt for a different color altogether, like a pastel or an earth tone. There are many ways to transform another hue into a festive look.
No matter what you have in mind for your wedding this fall, you can make it a reality with a little bit of time and energy put into the planning process. You’ll love the way it all comes together as you prepare to celebrate your lives together.
