Fall Wedding Trends for 2023

As soon as the first commercial announcing the arrival of pumpkin spice lands in our periphery, we receive the call of the autumn brides, “what are the trends this year?” Fall is a very popular season to get married, as it offers the option of transitioning between the seasons. September is the most popular month to get married during the fall, since the temperatures aren’t too hot or too cold yet.


So, what will we be seeing this season? The fan favorite is the range of rich, warm hues that fall offers. Besides your typical orange and reds, thanks to Viva Magenta being the color of the year, we will find a mix of jewel tones, mainly from the burgundy and wine family. Gold is still a fan favorite accent color, along with cream.


Décor will be very vintage meets rustic. Think dark wood accents such as wood slices for charger plates, wood cross back chairs, combined with velvet tablecloths, and candlelight. Pampas grass is back, especially in arches and bouquets, to really bring out the season. We are also seeing an increase in sunflowers as the star of the show in bridal bouquets and centerpieces mixed in with burgundy flowers and even mixing in dry flowers with them.


The food experience is more noticeable in the dessert tables. Mini pies and lots and lots of s'mores, hot chocolate, apple cider stations and coffee stations featuring pumpkin spice creamers. Wedding cakes will incorporate the colors and feel of the season, as they still are the centerstage for dessert at weddings.


Wedding designers take a lot of their inspiration from the couture runway shows and one thing we are seeing is long sleeves! The balloon sleeve was a fan favorite of wedding designs for fall, which is a favorite for those wanting to cover their arms. It provides a flowy and whimsical style, very vintage inspired. Puff sleeves are also making a comeback, with the option of being removable. You could wear the sleeves for the ceremony and take them off for reception. Mermaid style skirts, though always present, take a back seat to flowy a-lines, tulle skirts, and chiffon transitions over.


When it comes to jewels in wedding gowns, we are used to seeing rhinestones and pearls incorporated in patterns on the wedding gown, on sashes, and on veils. This fall, taking another page from the runways, we will see colored stones on wedding gowns. Sapphire stones in a vintage setting would make for the perfect something blue!



When it comes to trends, remember to make them your own. Trends come and go, but your wedding pictures are forever!
