Fall continues to grow as the most popular wedding season. Couples love to see the cascading reds and golds of the season as they make their way down the aisle. The natural landscape, crisp air and swiftly changing leaves reflect the major milestone of a wedding. When you consider your wedding gown, think about what part of autumn the wedding takes place within and if you want it to complement the natural landscape. Below are five wedding gown styles to consider for your fall wedding look.
Cover Up While Showing Off
Consider a deep V-neck gown with long sleeves and a sheer effect. Or a wedding gown with long sleeves and a sheer back. Similarly, you could go for a more popular bridal trend that includes a heavier, more silky fabric. These gowns typically showcase the shoulders and legs. Add a veil that sweeps over the shoulders to make a perfect wrap for chillier temperatures.
Don’t be afraid to raise your neckline to your collar. A sheer collared neckline will still reveal the beautiful sweetheart cut underneath, and some wedding gowns now offer more structural choices.
Go Full Red
Love the scarlet leaves falling? Symbolize the passion of your love and the radiance of the season with a striking red wedding gown that makes you feel like a salsa queen. Imagine a sweetheart cut with short sleeves hanging off the shoulders, and the bottom kisses your ankles with flowing ruffles. Perfect for twirling in the breeze and leaves!
Think back to Lydia Hearst’s celebrity wedding. She wore this gorgeous pink ombre gown, and while the bottom was unconventional, everything else remained traditional. Now, apply that to autumn, because ombre still trends. Add fall colors to the bottom of your gown.
An outdoor wedding in the falls shifts your thoughts toward mindfulness and the environment. You may be on the hunt for eco-conscious, sustainable wedding gowns. Consider a long paneled gown in fair-trade silk. Designers construct these dresses from pesticide-free mulberry trees, no antibiotics used. Workers are paid fair wages to weave the silk on traditional wooden looms.
