More and more brides are falling in love with the Spanish-inspired silhouettes. Flamenco dancers have definitely influenced wedding designers this fall with their textured ruffles as well as tiered necklines and off the shoulder designs.
Less is now more. Sheer silhouettes add the perfect peekaboo moment in a wedding gown while still leaving much to the imagination. This fall bridal trend is daring and elegant!
Stand out, literally, on your big day with 3D florals. Delicate floral appliqués on your dress will definitely make you pop with flower power.
Engagement rings are the staple piece of every wedding. It is the symbol of love that marks the beginning of every marriage and ‘happily ever after.’ Different styles of engagement rings have evolved and multiplied over the years and now thankfully, there are plenty options for men and women to choose from.

For a bride who loves to redefine the norm, proposing with a rose gold ring is an option. With a rosy shade, it will compliment any skin tone and adds a feminine flair to any style.
Two is always better than one. More and more bridal rings are being designed with double shanks which means more diamonds for your bride to be. And remember, diamonds are a girl’s best friend!
September and October are known for being some of the most popular months to have a fall wedding. With the crisp weather and the turning color of leaves, it is the ultimate fall bridal back drop trend year after year. Of course with a beautiful background you’ll need the perfect color palette to compliment your romantic setting.
Deep Purple’s & Light Blues
If you’re looking for a sophisticated wedding look that is completely unexpected, then a dark purple like an eggplant and periwinkle are the way to go. It’ll add a glamorous feel to your décor that your guests will love!
A natural palette is the best way to make sure any color you decide to play with will match your décor. Whether you decide on a vibrant lime green or deep ocean blue, both colors will tie in perfectly with the soft tan tones of the earth.
Delicate peaches, greens and purples will add the perfect rustic and romantic flair to any fall wedding. Soft pastels will balance out the vivid colors of the turning fall leaves. Orchid is a timeless color to incorporate into your wedding.
