5 Fall Wedding and Party Trends

When the leaves change colors and the air turns crisp bringing in a cozy atmosphere, you know it’s the best time to celebrate! Outdoor parties, romantic weddings, beautiful autumnal hues, and sumptuous fall flavors are some of the things that we adore during our favorite season. But what are some of the trends party planners are shifting to this year and upcoming 2021 events? Here’s what to consider for your fall wedding and parties.

1. Bold + Soft Hues

Fall season is often associated with bold colors such as reds, blues, and purple hues. Try combining these rich tones with faded mellow colors for a softer look. Some of our favorites: lush greens with romantic dusty rose and burgundy with dusty blue.

2. Micro Weddings

Since local city rules limit gatherings, more couples are opting for micro weddings of immediate family. Instead of big venues, opt for small garden or backyard celebrations. Make it special with an eye-catching arch or backdrop with gorgeous flower arrangements. Make your reception a romantic dinner for 2 with LED candles. Don't forget to distribute sanitizer and sequin masks so everyone can party in style.

3. Unique Greenery

Since most summer weddings were cancelled, brides and event planners are taking summer weather trends and applying them to fall and winter events but adding unique statement decor. Create a striking ceiling treatment with hanging lush greens and disco balls, use greenery garlands as table runners accented with large florals and candles, or surprise your guests with personalized favors like succulent plants.

4. Balloon Installations

One of the things that this pandemic has taught us is to adapt to the "new normal." Ever heard of drive-by birthdays and baby showers? You could follow this trend by setting up balloon garland entrances or driveway arches. Place balloons over tables where you could put to-go snacks and party favors for your guests to enjoy.

Using taper candles and LED candle centerpieces is a romantic way to decorate for your wedding reception or home decor.

5. Candles

Using taper candles and LED candle centerpieces is a romantic way to decorate for your wedding reception or home decor. Use white or ivory taper candles for a classic look, or colorful ones for a whimsical pop of color. If you are concerned about the risk of fire or your venue simply doesn't allow real candles, LED candles will create a beautiful glow that's just as effective as the real ones.

More suggestions for fall weddings:

Fall naturally gives us a rich, warm palette of colors. Add richness and dimension to your florals by incorporating traditional fall elements like pinecones, apples, or pomegranates into your table displays. Colorful pressed leaves placed under a light overlay of organdy or tulle brings a lovely, yet unexpected touch of the season indoors. Instead of glass vases use hollowed out pumpkins.
