Fall Wedding Trends
Thursday, September 22, 2016
We love fall weddings, especially in Cincinnati. Fall brides can count on gorgeous flowers, rich, bold colors, an incredible autumn palette for a photo backdrop, and of course a delicious fall menu. Some of the trends we expect to see at weddings this fall are truly gorgeous.
Plenty of brides will be borrowing from a range of rich fall colors, but we expect to see a lot of deep, rich plum, complimented with pastels and neutrals. Think of a scene from Victorian era Paris, very romantic!
Again inspired by natural surroundings, couples will most likely choose to don their cakes with flowers and greenery rather than fondant and traditional cake toppers. The “naked” cake may cause a stir at a few weddings this fall. This frosting-less cake is covered in a thin layer of translucent, sugary glaze, leaving the cake layers beneath exposed. The cake might be dressed up a little with a drizzle of caramel or artfully placed berries.
Fall bouquets are a little wild, a little tame. Dahlias, especially the color of pinot noir, will be all the rage this year, especially when paired with pale pink or peach colored roses. Creative florists are using unconventional pops of color from things like sprigs of pepper berries or rosehips.
Food (Our Favorite!)
Creativity is king when it comes to fall wedding menus. Couples are choosing to have fun with their choices and use the food as a way to show off their personalities. Try adding a gourmet coffee stand, a taco bar, or barbecue, complete with bibs! It’s always a good idea to think seasonally and go for local favorites when you make your catering decisions.
Whether you want a formal reception or something more casual, this is a great opportunity to showcase your personal style. Fall receptions will feature tall candles and ornate candelabras, a touch of the rustic with branches and greenery, and hand-lettered calligraphy for signs and place cards.
No matter the season, you can trust Cincinnati Catering Company to deliver the most delicious wedding menus and most gorgeous wedding cakes for your big day. Give us a call today to find out more: 513.541.2626.
