Fall Wedding Dress Trend #1: Cover-Ups
Fall weather is unpredictable, but chances are that you’ll be dealing with a cool, crisp day. You can choose long sleeves, but most wedding dress trends still tend toward sleeveless and spaghetti strap fall wedding dresses. To keep from catching a chill and allow your groom to keep his own tuxedo jacket, you can choose a cover up or wrap that complements your dress. These are easy to make yourself if your dress is a basic white… just make sure that you get the same kind of fabric if you want the same color jacket or opt instead for an accenting wedding color in lace, faux fur or cashmere.
- Opt for a satin or organza light wrap that falls off the shoulders. These are better for the wedding ceremony itself since they drape so beautifully but will become cumbersome during the reception since it will limit your use of your hands and arms.
- A capelet or short jacket allows you freedom to move and keeps you warmer than a wrap. It does tend to make your dress look like a long-sleeved dress if you wear it the entire time, but it’s nice to have the option to remove it for the ceremony and on the dance floor.
- A long cape is appropriate if you have an outdoor fall wedding on a windy day or if your reception is outside. Stylish and warm, it could give your fall wedding something of a wintry look, and make serve as an accent depending upon the theme of your day.
Fall Wedding Dress Trend #2: Pick-Ups
Far more elegant than ruffles and dreamier than the crystal pinning and draping on a full skirted fall wedding gown, pick-ups are a growing trend for fall wedding dresses. The pick-ups hide the wedding reception bustle as if the train never existed and practically makes your fall wedding dress into two dresses in one. A different take on the princess-style fall wedding dress, a full skirt with pick-ups has a look that is more soft and romantic than a plain tulle skirt.
Fall Wedding Dress Trend #3: Color and Crystal Accents
This fall, wedding dresses will be more often accented with strips of dark colors-burgundy, navy, deep red, hunter green, rich purple-and train linings to match. Choose one of your wedding colors, perhaps the same color as your bridesmaids’ dresses, to accent the waist line or choose colored crystal accents instead.
Another popular trend, though usually not in color, are the crystal accents arranged in floral or leafy designs on new fall wedding dresses. These same crystal designs can be echoed on the edge of your veil, on gloves, on your cape, even around the stem of your bouquet. Crystal designs on your fall wedding dress are the new embroidery!
Fall Wedding Dress Trend #4: Lace up Versus Zip Up Backs
Corset-style back enclosures are hugely popular on many catwalks, from the most casual tee to the most elegant ball gown. Fall wedding dresses are now available with this sexy-yet-vintage touch. Satin ribbons criss-cross up your back to make the bodice fit your figure perfectly. Though zippers, especially hidden zippers, may be better for dresses with complicated lace overlays or intricate crystal designs, adding a corset back to your simple, sleek fall wedding dress allows you to add an understated unique touch that is very now.
Fall Wedding Dress Trend #5: Headpieces Versus Veils
Veils are traditional and lovely, whether you choose a floor length veil, a short bubble veil, or a fingertip length veil. Your choice in head piece will likely be determined by the style of your fall wedding dress and fall wedding dress trends are pointing toward the shorter more sophisticated head pieces: vintage 50s style birdcage veils that cover only the face or 20s style feather or flower combs that cover half the head. Both are chic and accent fall wedding dresses of any design.
No matter which fall wedding dress trend speaks to you, you can easily find a wedding dress tailor locally or online that will mix and match these different trends until you find the perfect dress for your fall wedding day.
