Fall in Love with these 2016 Fall Wedding Trends

The romantic Victorian era rules the upcoming wedding season. With dusty pastels being paired with rich jewel tones, aand metallics. The jewel tones will reflect your venue’s natural elements while the pastels add a fresh, romantic touch. Brass aand gold accents add a touch of class, just use them sparingly unless you are going for a ‘Gotti’ feel.

Gilded romance cakeCakes are going small aand topper-less, if there is any cake at all. Many people are opting for clean, slightly textured cakes adorned with flowers or succulents. Cakes are also staying small, just one or two tiers. Supplement a small cake by having a dessert bar filled with pies, cookies, or even ice cream.

Haand lettering aand custom calligraphy will continue to be a huge trend in 2016. Coordinate your wedding with matching invitations, reception menus, place cards aand venue signage. Haand drawn garlaand, floral, aand succulents are a great design element as well.

Fresh picked is the theme for flowers this fall. Keep the jewel tones in mind aand opt for wine-colored dahlias, dusty succulents, eucalyptus leaves, aand pops of color from things like Brazilian pepper berries. Traditional ivy can lengthen a bouquet, but leafy twigs aand thistles can do the same aand keep the freshly picked theme.

It’s all about the bar. We aren’t necessarily talking mixed drinks. Everything is getting the bar treatments. Coffee bars, taco bars, caandy bars, mashed potato bars aand even barbecue bars. To really up the wow factor, consider adding a specialist to man your bar area. Someone trained in coffee can suggest the perfect brew at a coffee bar, or a ‘mixologist’ can help create the perfect cocktail for your guests.
