Top 10 Fall Wedding Trends

Fall is my absolute favorite time of the year. I get excited over sweaters, jeans, boots, scarves, cider (I buy it by the gallon), donuts, and those fleeting moments of leaves falling from trees (and swirling through the air). And, what’s better than a fall wedding? To inspire your upcoming day, we’ve rounded up the ten hottest fall wedding trends. We’re sharing coffee bars, cardigans, sunflowers, hair accessories, and more. So, grab a cup of coffee (like this!), snuggle under a blanket, and read on to be inspired…

6. Brides Wearing Cardigans

Fall is synonymous with brisk, cool weather… but that doesn’t mean the bride has to be left out in the cold! Add a pop of color to your wardrobe (+ stay warm!) with a cozy cardigan.
