Are you planning an autumn wedding? Picking out a dress for a cooler wedding
day has its own unique rewards and challenges, from deciding between short and
long sleeves to picking out the right fabric. And in 2011, 2012 and beyond, fall
weddings are as popular as ever - and come with their own special trends.
One big pattern that'll be popular this fall? Dots! Point d'esprit fabric has
a classic, girly feel to it that any bride is sure to love. Plus, it's bold
enough to help you stand out from the crowd, while still being appropriately
subtle for your wedding day.
Fall wedding dresses
have one big trend that spring and summer ones don't - sleeves. Long, lacy
sleeves might have you sweating in June, July and August, but they're perfect
for saying "I do" in September and beyond. They feel classic and timeless, and
they're easy to update for a contemporary look - and ever since Kate Middleton
sported them, they've never been more popular.
Fall brides should also let the autumn foliage inspire their weddings, from
gowns to decorations. Billowing skirts and embellishments can be reminiscent of
falling leaves and snow, while the orange, red and yellow palette is gorgeous
for any wedding day.
