Fall Trends for Your Connecticut Wedding

If you’ve got a wedding coming up in the next few months, you’ll be thinking ahead to the great Fall trends. This year’s Fall weddings are set to be a bit unusual, but completely beautiful. Here are a few to keep in mind.

  • Dresses: The big trend for Fall wedding dresses is lace. This is especially popular in sleeves, which are staying on trend through the coming year.
  • Colors: This year’s Fall weddings are saying no to earth tones. Instead, look for colors that are bold, vibrant, and stand out against the sometimes drab seasonal background.
  • Food: Filling, rustic, and farm-fresh are the keywords for Fall wedding food. Hearty dishes are a great way to welcome the chill in the air, with fresh and local ingredients giving an ethical twist to your menu.
  • Themes: The autumnal style is going to be focused on romance. Themes are still being used, but Fall weddings will include extra feminine touches to give a romantic feel that’s in keeping with the weather.
