What Goes into a Fall Wedding?  

You’ve picked your date and venue, and now it’s time to plan! The next thing on your list is likely deciding the fall color palette and vibe of your fall wedding. Whether you choose to have a ballroom soiree or an outdoor fall wedding, the theme and venue will help inform which wedding dresses are best for you!  

Consider the type of fabric and color of your dress and how it will work with your overall vision. While fall brides can wear whatever fall wedding dress makes them feel beautiful, if they want a look that speaks to the season, there are a few characteristics that make for a show-stopping fall bridal gown!  

Typically, fall wedding dress styles include sleeves, heavier fabrics like satin, vine and leaf lace or beading with touches of gold. When it comes to fall wedding dress colors, off-white gowns or those with a nude underlay are gorgeous choices for fall because of their warm undertones. 

What Is a Fall Bride? 

A fall bride is a bride who chooses to have their wedding in autumn and have their own distinctive charm, known for incorporating the season’s natural beauty into the wedding theme and decor.  

Fall brides often embrace the rich colors of the changing leaves, the crisp air and the cozy ambiance that autumn brings. They may opt for warm color palettes, rustic elements and seasonal accents to create a romantic and memorable wedding experience.

All-over lace and soft regal organza come together in Essense of Australia Style D3520 to create a casual fall gown and one of our favorite outdoor wedding styles!

For an added vintage touch, a row of fabric-covered buttons lines the back of this dress.  

Long Sleeve Fall Wedding Dress

Stella York Style 7521+ 

Wedding dresses with sleeves provide additional coverage, warmth and detail, making them one of the most popular styles of fall wedding dresses! Stella York Style 7521 is one of our favorite long-sleeved wedding dresses. It pairs a windswept romantic style with a dreamy boho design. 

All-over matte lace accentuates the bodice’s semi-sheer construction and sweetheart neckline. For a versatile fall wedding look, the sheer statement off-the-shoulder sleeves detach at the bodice. Swirling lace appliqués dance between the layers of frothy tulle in the soft A-line skirt made for every type of bride. 

Different Outdoor Weddings for the Fall 

Fall weddings are a magical blend of beauty and practicality, and it’s no wonder why brides choose to take advantage of the aesthetics of the season! Just as the leaves are changing, so are the color palettes.  

Fall weddings present a wonderful opportunity for brides to incorporate warm, organic colors into their wedding design. Not to mention the cooler weather allows guests to party on the dance floor without getting overheated! 

There are so many venue styles to choose from when hosting outdoor weddings in the fall. From the beach in early fall to a vineyard or botanical gardens, there is an outdoor fall wedding vibe to fit your aesthetic!  

When dress shopping, remember to keep in mind the terrain of where you are getting married. Moving in a big ball gown or an extra-long train may be difficult, especially on the beach or grassy areas. A-lines, fit-and-flares and column silhouettes, however, make for easy movement down the aisle and on the dance floor!
