This year is all about the unexpected, but too many weddings have been put off due to uncertainty. Love will only wait so long and so non-traditional weddings have become the top trend of 2020. Your wedding might not be looking exactly like you imagined a year ago, but that’s no reason it can’t be fabulous and chic. Read on for our top ideas for fall weddings 2020.
As the saying goes, start as you mean to go on. This year, your home has become your castle as well as your office, gym, and café, so why not your wedding venue too? No reason to lament the fact; embrace it. Fall foliage provides an instantly chic and gorgeous backdrop, and just think of the stories you’ll be telling your kids on your 30th anniversary.
Rich, warm hues dominate in fall 2020. Chocolate and purple are hot for bridesmaids’ gowns in 2020 and extend to the whole of wedding decor.
With backyard weddings trending strong, nature-inspired or homegrown flowers in autumn shades such as garden roses and fiddle ferns are très chic.
Have your invitations laser-cut with a fall-themed image, such as a tree or leaf, or perhaps cut in the shape of a fall flower, like a chrysanthemum.
Open-back dresses are trending strong for fall 2020. Combine that with an outdoor ceremony and you might find yourself a little on the chilly side. Be prepared for any weather by getting yourself and your bridesmaids’ luxurious matching pashminas.
Au naturel or painted gold, curly willow creates a gorgeous frame for your vows. Entwine it with romantic oakleaf hydrangea or a mix of leaves and berries for extra autumn elegance.
The reception seating chart is a necessity, but it doesn’t have to be boring. Use leaves, mini pumpkins, or suspend the name cards from tree branches for a stunning seasonal presentation.
A centerpiece made of petals and leaves scattered below recalls the season in a chic, romantic way.
Lanterns filled with gold candles emit a warm, flattering glow while antique votives add a dash of romance. Paper lanterns are fun and colorful, and impart an airy aura to your reception.
Environmentalism is always chic and fall is the perfect time to plant a tree. Offer your guests a sapling as a memento of your special day, and a symbol of your ever-growing love.
Even if you can’t get your hands on a Cinderella pumpkin coach, you can still incorporate a pumpkin’s bountiful charm in so many ways: lining the aisles, as place settings, and even as a centerpiece — carved with your new monogram of course. An orange or pumpkin-dotted tie adds a chic pop of color on a ring bearer while the flower girls can carry pumpkin baskets of flowers. Pumpkins can be painted to match any color scheme. You can even add mini pumpkins to your bouquet! And don’t forget the obligatory wedding rings on the pumpkin pic.
