Fall Wedding Trends for 2011

We read a lot about what’s going on in the industry, particularly to stay on top of what’s happening for our brides-to-be and so we can help them stay on the cutting edge if they so choose.

New for the coming fall, and something we’ve seen more and more of recently, are colored wedding gowns.  Seen on sites such as Bridal Beauty, Event Charmed, Perfect Wedding Guide,  and The Knot, wedding dresses with just a hint of color – some hinting more than others – have become a bit of the rage for 2011, with the Fall expected to be the peak of the year.

Colors expected to be prevalent in fall, according to Wedding Colors, are shades of all earth tones and antique varieties.  Be on the lookout for dark crimson, olive green, chocolate brown, marigold, plumb, fuchsia, royal purple, burnt orange, and navy.  Other colors to be expected, says Wedding and Party Network, are gray paired with lavender, chocolate brown with burnt orange or deep yellow, and – closer to wintertime – deep reds with deep brown or black.

Autumn also tends to be an outdoor preference for brides, according to Wedding.com, because it’s not too hot and it’s not too cold.  Savannah, GA definitely fits the mold for perfect weather in the Fall.  Be sure to keep in mind if you choose to have an outdoor wedding, weather is unpredictable regardless of the season, so be sure to have a back-up.

A few other ideas to be on the watch for – see Aisledash.com for more details – vintage stationary, food trucks, and textured wedding cakes.  Remember as you’re planning to add some of yourself and your spouse into the details – it’s your day and this day should reflect you and your significant other’s relationship; after all, this is the first day of your new life together.
