Autumn Wedding Part II: Gowns and Accessories

Autumn’s colors and glowing and vibrant, and the fall bride should be glowing and vibrant too! Winter will be here soon enough, so forget the snowy white, virginal look for now, and mix in some glorious fall color! Passionate reds, flaming yellow, mossy greens and earthy browns, sparkling with glints of gold and copper.

Gold: If you want subtle color in the place of white or ivory, consider a gold toned gown… or simply add a golden sash to warm up a traditional white dress. Add antique gold earrings, bangles, or pearls, and you’re ready to walk down the isle.

Red: Nothing says “romance” like red! The bold bride won’t be afraid to buck tradition and go for an all-out red gown. They are being seen more and more these days.  But red sashes, trimmings, accessories, flowers, or jewelry can also be used to add a touch of fire to a white dress.

Orange: I have heard of pumpkins, maple leaves, and orange gerbera daisies gracing a fall wedding. But an orange wedding gown… Well, why not?! The orange-loving bride can step out of the ordinary and don an orange dress like the feisty, free-spirited bride below.

Green: The bright lime green of spring is not this season’s shade. Fall’s inspirations are mellow ferns or deep, rich evergreen.  The leaves are changing color but dark green endures as a beautiful fall color.

Earth-tones: I have yet to see a brown wedding dress. But dark chocolate or hazel colored sashes look lovely with any gown, especially cream or coffee colored. (The groom will look handsome in a matching chocolate suit or tux!)

Accessories and Jewelry: Gleaming gold, iridescent pearls, flashing jewels… the colors of fall are warm and bright. A gold leaf and pearl choker, little flower earrings, gold leaf pin, and bangle bracelets turn any fall bride into a queen for a day!
