Are you looking for inspiration for your fall wedding? If you’re wondering what will be trendy this autumn season, you’ve come to the right place. From flowers to cakes, here are some of the fall 2018 wedding trends.

Untraditional Venues

Rather than hosting wedding receptions in traditional settings, many couples will be holding their receptions in unique places this fall. Barns, concert halls, historic libraries, and even gyms are some of the places where couples will host their receptions this fall.

Inexpensive Flowers

Rather than spending hundreds of dollars on wedding bouquets, many couples will be opting for inexpensive flowers in fall 2018. Baby’s breath bouquets, which were popular a few years ago, will be making a revival. Another trend you’ll see this season is a single-stemmed flower in place of a bouquet. Large flowers like peonies or tropical flowers like hibiscus will be popular single-stemmed options.

Nontraditional Wedding Gowns

Many brides will break away from traditional white wedding gowns this season. Instead, you’ll see a lot of smoky and mauve wedding dresses. Jewel-colored wedding gowns will also be popular, so you might consider rocking your favorite gemstone color. You’ll see everything from emerald and sapphire to amethyst and ruby colored gowns this fall.

In terms of designs, sleeves will be on-trend during the fall 2018 wedding season. Bell sleeves, in particular, will be popular among brides. Capes will also be popular this fall. Hooded capes, lace capelets, and capes with pearl designs will be common in lieu of a veil.

Unconventional Escort Cards

Take signature drinks to a whole other level by using them as an escort card holder. It’s a great way to kick start your reception and is bound to leave a lasting impression on your guests. Whether you opt for a shot of whiskey or a glass of wine, this is a great way to immediately set the tone for your wedding.

Colorful Suit Colors

Although black, gray, and navy suits will always be classic options at weddings, grooms in fall of 2018 will also be wearing colorful suits. Some of the suit colors you can expect to see this fall season include burgundy, plum, dark green, olive green, and mauve.

Unique Entertainment Options

Couples are ditching the photo booths in favor of other forms of entertainment. You’re more likely to see caricature artists, tarot readers, magicians, and even clowns at weddings this fall season. Couples are looking for new ways to create memorable experiences for their guests by personalizing their entertainment.

Smaller Cake Portions

The cake trend for fall 2018 weddings is to serve bite-sized portions or cake pops. The idea is that your guests can take these bite-sized portions onto the dance floor with them, rather than coming back to the table for a full-sized slice.

Different Destinations

You might find that fewer couples will be hosting their destination weddings in tropical places like Aruba and Hawaii this fall season. Some destination wedding hot spots include the hills of Scotland, the English countryside, and the castles of Ireland.

These are just some fall 2018 wedding trends to keep in mind when planning your special day!
