The fall color of the moment in 2022 is emerald green and for good reason. It's rich color looks amazing on everything- from gowns to shoes, and even reception decor. It's eye catching and certainly beautiful and will make just about anything pop. This color will be big for bridesmaids gowns this season, in various style, lengths, and fabrics. Many brides are even opting to make this their wedding gown color! It's also a great way to dress up reception tables-think linens, tablecloths and floral arrangements. There's no shortage of ways for this color to be added for fall fall weddings, and with it's stunning hue, we won't be surprised when this color seeps its way into winter weddings too.

At the other end of the spectrum are bold fall colors as exciting choices for wedding signs and templates. Shades of burnt orange, terracotta, coriander, rust, and soft burgundy will be some of the most noticeable colors at fall weddings and will be a big trend with stationery pieces. Wedding programs, seating charts, and reception menus using these colors as their background make for designs that stand out. These pieces will also feature the same clean lines and fonts as traditional black and white staples but will offer a more noticeable look. It's a fun twist on traditional minimalism that will still be beautiful, and will make all of the wedding day events more colorful. Rustic and mountain weddings are the perfect event for this trend and will make any fall ceremony feel right in season.

Delicate and timeless, there is just something very glamorous about pearls. Rather than diamonds or colorful gemstones, brides are choosing pearls as their wedding day jewelry and accessory pieces. Statement necklaces, hair pins, and shoes will be decorated with this shiny gemstone (fun fact: pearls are precious gemstones!). They will also make an appearance on everything from cakes to gowns, and even bridal veils. Simple designs like the floral pieces on these pearl heels below, or even bolder items like barrettes and chunky clusters will be everywhere this fall.

Your pets should always be included in your wedding day if possible, and there's been a huge uptick in furry friends being a part of the special event. Whether they are part of the bridal party, or you're doing a first look with your pet (yes, this is a real thing and we are so into it), they want to look their best as well. Custom outfits and clothing items for pets aren't considered cheesy or out of place- in fact, they are widely popular! Don't be surprised to see all the best boys (and girls!) dressed to the canines (we couldn't help it!) at upcoming fall affaires. Custom pieces like bandanas to match wedding colors, or traditional black bowties are the easiest way to give your pet some extra style. For the couple that wants their fur baby to have that little something extra, flower crowns and collars are a great option as well. We can't wait to see the photos of all the stylish wedding pets!

One of the biggest themes of the fall 2022 season is a return to the traditional, and the men are at the forefront. Grooms will be turning to more classical suit styles- think black and white with a simple tie or bowtie. They'll be sticking to clean lines, and tailored fits for their wedding day attire, with very little color or flair. This style for men is timeless, and they always look so handsome when they're dressed up. Their appearances will also be clean, with groomed facial hair, and perfectly coifed locks. Men also want to look beautiful and fashionable, and there's no easier way than the classic black suit and tie. The men of the upcoming wedding season will be some of the best dressed yet, and we know the bride's are just as excited about it as we are.

Brides everywhere are changing up their wedding bouquets and turning towards dried floral arrangements. These boho inspired designs are becoming more and more popular, as dried florals will last much longer than standard flowers and are easier to customize. Dyed or colored pampas grass make for a pretty aesthetic and it looks beautiful mixed in with any type of flower. For a different look, neutral toned versions will turn heads and will be a hot topic of conversation. Bouquets with rich fall colors will be at the forefront compared to their beige or tan counterparts, but we expect to see plenty of neutral versions mixed in as well.

This fall favorite color will continue to be big this upcoming season, and if you're looking for the most delicious way to insert it into your wedding, there's no better way than with cake! One toned options are perfect for something bold, and we love how bakers are finding ways to dress them up like the geometric add ons in the below photo. For a more subtle look, colored flowers or shapes can be added to turn your wedding cake into something extraordinary. We anticipate this color of cake to be on the rise for fall, and possibly winter too. If you're looking for ways to add more terracotta colored items to your fall fete, or want to see more on this trend, read our article about the best ways to incorporate this color HERE.

We love twinkle lights, but if you're looking for something just a little bit different and still want the sparkle of lighting, fairy lighting is the way to go. Imagine walking into your outdoor reception and seeing lighting that makes you feel like you're in another world! Instead of lights that are spaced apart, this lighting technique has the bulbs arranged much closer together to give the appearance of stars. They are decorative in style and can easily be installed as wall pieces or from high places. Fairy lights are much more flexible by design compared to other lighting techniques, which allows for them to be arranged just about anywhere and in different styles. This type of lighting will be big for fall 2022, turning outdoor receptions and rustic weddings into magic wonderlands.
