In most places, September brings a change in the air and a change in personal style. Just like all seasons, fall has its ever-changing trends in the wedding industry as well. Fall weddings bring a deeper (and darker) meaning to florals, greenery and bold statements.

At Wonderland Bridal, we are committed to keeping you up-to-date with the seasonal trends surrounded around all things bridal. Believe it or not, we are in peak wedding season in South Florida. August through December are some of the most popular months to get married down here. Is it the lack of humidity, or could it be the love for the bold fall colors that have brides racing to the altar during these months?

Similar to spring, fall brides will continue to embrace off-the-shoulder gowns, plunging necklines and dresses with sleeves. As mentioned in previous posts, these are the go-to styles for the entire year of 2017 – not just limited to seasons. Brides love the fact that they can flatter their arms and upper body with these sexy and sweet styles.

Bridal Fashion Week also brought in a new movement of wedding dresses. A movement of ruffles, feathers, and tiered skirts.

Cascading ruffles are perfect for a fall whimsical wedding, bringing a twist to the traditional “romantic wedding dress”.

Tiered skirts make quite the “ball gown” statement. If this is the look you’re going for, our new fall arrivals will be just what you’re looking for.

Sleeves were also a huge focus for designers this season. Our favorite “sleeve-inspired” dresses are all about lace. Lace is a trend that will never leave the bridal industry and we couldn’t be happier about it.

Let’s talk about billowing bishop sleeves, because that seemed to get a lot of attention during Bridal Fashion Week as well. This is a trend we aren’t 100% on board with just yet. It brings us back to the days of when our grandparents’ got married, which doesn’t always have to be a bad thing – if done right. A dress with billowing bishop sleeves is a brave high-fashion move that can quickly turn into Betty White’s hand-me-down dress from the movie, The Proposal. If you’re a 2018-2019 bride-to-be, expect the year of the “bell sleeve” a toned down version of the billowing bishop sleeve. Stay tuned for those…

Fall brides should expect to see bridesmaid dresses in jewel-toned color palettes in Wonderland. The most popular bridesmaid dress colors of fall 2017 range of plum to burgundy. These darker colors naturally bring out the change of season, while the pastels remain in spring.

In addition to these darker tones, we have hues of blues from Sorella Vita’s newest Mikado and Nouveau Sequin Collections, that have an icy glacier color combination.

Other fall wedding trends to be on the lookout for…

So much greenery, or as one of our recent brides called it “whimsical AF”. Now more than ever, brides want the “fairytale in forest” feel with embellish greenery and bold garden-like statements. Think hanging floral centerpieces and succulents that bring dimension to your table settings.

While on the subject of greenery, paper invitations, programs and place cards are now being replaced with leaves. One of our favorite artists, Jenny of ChickadeeDixie, provides preserved Magnolia leaves with handwritten names in gold ink on the leaves.
