Top 5 Raleigh Style 2019 Fall Weddings Trends 

 

Keeping up with trends is hard. But it doesn’t have to be. Lucky for you J&J has all of the insights of what is popular and trendy for modern Fall weddings! The last thing you want to do is not be caught up on the latest of what’s in this season.  So here is a list of the biggest trends that will keep you looking refined and chic on your big day! 

 

For The Bride: Natural Makeup 

It’s all the rage. The days of overly caked on makeup are long behind us. In the age of microbladed eyebrows and contouring, many brides are pushing towards a more natural palette for their wedding day makeup. 

You want to highlight your features and diminish the appearance of any unwanted blemishes or scars. The best thing about choosing a light makeup is that you will be emphasizing the most important part of your look: the dress. Having less caked-on dramatic makeup will shift the focus on whatever dress you have chosen for your big day. Whether its a mermaid style dress or a more avant garde choice, light makeup won’t distract or divert attention negatively. Different types of dresses work best for various seasons. For instance, Fall weddings are a great opportunity to showcase dresses with lace sleeves that can provide you with some warmth. They are also more sleek and chic, perfect for creating a vintage look to a modern dress. Another pro of choosing to do natural makeup is that will give you more choice in hairstyles and ensure that you won’t look tacky or overdone. Natural makeup also looks better in photographs, you don’t want to make the mistake of putting on too much makeup and having your skin look greasy. 

 

Real Succulents/Plants

The millennial trend of buying succulents is not outside the purview of weddings. Investing in succulents and other plants can give your wedding a natural look that is both simple and relatively cost-effective. Giving away succulents as a token of your wedding to guests is also a great way to leave a memento to your friends and family to remember your big day. 

Plants also help to liven up your space and to contrast and compliment whatever colors you have chosen in your palette. If you are planning a fall wedding, you can also get plants that are in season such as eucalyptus, orange roses, and wildflowers. Keep color palettes in mind when choosing flowers and other plants for your wedding. Burnt oranges and darker like purples and gold hues are great for Fall weddings! 

 

Metallics and Deep, Rich Hues

Including bronze and silver metallics is a great way to make sure that your wedding color palette looks unique and sophisticated. Dark oranges, and deep reds compliment metallics and keep your wedding palette consist with an Autumn theme. 

Additionally, if you choose to have succulents in your wedding design, the deep green will nicely be highlighted by that contrast. It is important to remember, the days of pastel palettes are long gone. Especially if you are thinking of having a Fall wedding, it is important to follow a vibe and theme that is central to whatever aesthetic you are choosing to go for. 

 

Small, Minimalist Cakes

Heavy fondant and loud colors are not as trendy as they once were for wedding cakes. What is popular now is the rise of minimalist cakes. They have a very light coat of icing, often such a small amount that leave the layers of cake exposed. Usually adorned with the ever so popular design of succulents and other plants, these cakes are a great option for your wedding as they are simple and beautiful to look at. They also tend to taste better since the flavor of the cake is not overpowered by an overabundance of fondant and icing. 

Also, cupcakes are also in vogue as they are easier to serve and require a lot less effort. Another benefit to serving cupcakes at your wedding is that they are a lot less messy and are so much fun for your younger wedding guests. Kids love cupcakes and it can be a great way to serve the perfect portion without worrying about serving anything over the top or wasteful. 

 

What to Remember 

Less is more! 

The overall take away from 2019 wedding trends is that you don’t need to overdo it to have a sophisticated, modern wedding. Simplicity is beautiful as it showcases different elements of your wedding in a smart and sensible way. It also ensures that your wedding does not look tacky or outmoded.
