2019 is all about redefining tradition, the classics, and what it means to be a bride–and the trends for fall weddings are no different. Boho is slowly shifting to a style with a little more polish, and a more avant-garde aesthetic is forming, with couples eager to take more risks as they plan events that speak to their look, and how they like to entertain. Old-world glamour is more chic than ever–but isn’t the glitzy, Gatsby-style opulence of the past days. For the modern bride, pushing boundaries, incorporating color and customization, and going back to the basics is what is in store for the upcoming season. Here, our ideas for Fall 2019 wedding celebrations.
Freeze: Step away from the mason jars and twine. Trade the over-used Pinterest faux pas for fresh fruit–like citrus in rich ochre hues or deeper toned figs, pomegranates and grapes. Thoughtful floral arrangements (like these gestural ones or those in domed glass cloches) make these undeniably of this season. Stick to evergreen and seasonal produce, for color-rich centerpieces. Pro tip: incorporate those same fruits into your locally-sourced menu for your wedding reception or after-party to give your guests a multi-sensory, seasonal taste.
Super-sized ball skirts are effortlessly majestic and ruled the runways this year. For the modern day princess bride, this look takes new life when it is done in smokey or jaw-dropping jewel tones. That’s right—you can try some color, we dare you. Luxe gemstone colors were never intended to be just for the bridesmaids, and frankly, they’ll look more sophisticated in neutrals. Worried that this look won’t feel bridal enough? Trust us, cascading trains and romantic ruffles are just as special in their color. This look is nothing short of unconventional and innovative–and this is mind blowing.
Outdoor, rustic, and barn weddings are not going anywhere anytime soon–but Coachella-inspired, unpolished bohemian affairs are having a back seat. Skip the high-hanging chandeliers and opt for the custom, handmade parasols; use colored taper candles to create a moody, yet whimsical vibe; and, use fine china and luxe textiles outdoors to make them a less-stuffy vibe. With the changing of weather, these polished, finer notes set the stage for an elevated affair–while still keeping your celebration mushy, organic, and outdoors.
Take a page out of the Royal’s wedding handbook and capture some otherworldly photographs in the parlor or ballroom of your venue that you will treasure forever. Notable architecture and mid-century decorations will naturally make for stylish, picturesque depiction –as will keeping the lighting rich. Consider a Duchess-worthy ball gown, Victorian-inspired neckline, or another fashion-centric detail compliment the aristocratic vibes.
Cocktails as Escort Cards
Calligraphy and beautifully designed place cards are stylish and glaring, but getting the good vibes going from the moment your guests arrive to your reception sends the message that they should prepare for a great experience–and a memorable party.
Sophisticated wood walls and cozy wooden banquet tables in opulent chestnut and maples are unclear and elegant in all the perfect ways. Scratch the table cloth and let your table and chairs live naturally in the space for a monochromatic look that feels more modern than it does peasant. Leverage lush greenery and fall foliage for the ultimate backdrop to your familiar autumn affair.
Skip the option and the Barns. As an alternate wedding destination, rendezvous to the countrysides of the United Kingdom, where season autumn is at its best. In the hills of Scotland, you’ll find moody landscaped views of some rolling hills and with the stone castles. In the English countryside, prepare for a more rustic vibe–but with a polish–or go glamorous with a historic Irish kingdom. Think Game of Thrones with a modern and romantic twist. You won’t regret opting for a lush or historic setting for the autumnal celebration.
