Ah…the merry month of May!  With its pastel palette, natural beauty and warmer temperatures, there’s no wonder why May is one of the most popular months for weddings.  And every couple captures its essence in their own romantic way.  From camping themes to floral garland, some spring choices are more unique than others.  But it’s always interesting to track the popular trends.

Elaborate Invitations

With 3D creations and intricate laser cuts, the tone for the wedding is now being set from the minute the guests open the envelope.  And that tone, according to Bridal Guide, is “a move toward sophisticated.”  Think glamour, gardens…and Gatsby!

Lush Flowers

For the second year running, the soft, romantic, peony is the most requested wedding flower.  With the bloom available for only two months, May is the perfect time to pick a peony bouquet.

Traditional all-white gowns will always be in style, but many are now being splashed with color.  Blue lining underneath, pink lace across the back, or a vibrant shoe are just a few of the latest runway looks—along with pastel dresses.  Don’t be surprised if you see the bride “all dressed in mint” since that seems to be this year’s go-to hue.

Color is popping up on cakes as well.  Bright bows, bold monograms and hand-painted designs are making edible works-of-art worthy of their own photo shoot.  On the other end of the sweet spectrum, Fake Cakes have become a popular budget choice for photos.  The couple still gets their cake-side shot, while a sheet cake is waiting to be served.  Not a bad way to save money for a tropical island trip…which is still the top honeymoon destination, no matter what time of year.

The weather is getting cooler and the leaves are just starting to change, which means Fall is about to make her grand entrance. The first day of Fall came last weekend on Saturday, September 22, and if you happened to be out celebrating a wedding that day, chances are it’s probably not the last wedding weekend of the season. Fall is quickly becoming the favorite time of year to say ” I do,” and it’s easy to see why. From rich and vibrant colors, to comfortable weather, the Autumn season brings with it endless opportunities for brides and wedding planners. We thought it would be fun to share some of our favorite Fall wedding trends we’ve seen recently…

Fashion:

- Peach and Blush tone wedding dresses. According to wedding expert Colin Cowie, “From naughty nudes to a deep, ripe shade of peach these new hues will warm up any skin tone and transform you into the ultimate blushing bride.”

Flowers:

- Texture, Texture, Texture – According to The Knot, the hottest trend in fall wedding flowers is lush, richly hued arrangements with lots of interesting texture. Instead of using just two or three types of blooms in your centerpieces, try a wide mix of flowers coordinated with your color scheme. Think berries, pods, and ferns.

Themes:

Vintage and Rustic continue to take the cake! According to the fun wedding blog Delightfully Engaged, the eclectic style will be taken up a notch this Fall. DIY projects continue to be the perfect way to add  individualization and originality to any couple’s special day.
