This weekend in Texas ushered in a teaser of autumn’s cooler weather and cozy atmosphere! While September will likely have a few more warm days in store for us, we’re loving this crisp taste of fall. As we dream of chilly days and cozy knit scarves, we’re also looking ahead to this year’s autumn weddings (right around the corner!). Today we’re featuring the top essentials for an unforgettable fall wedding:

Attire: while light and summery gowns are likely to carry us through Texas’s warmth, a drop in temperatures will eventually cue colder-weather style. An autumn bride might consider long lace sleeves for a graceful silhouette, complemented by braided updos adorned with fall florals. When it starts to get chilly, add glamorous accent pieces like faux fur capes for stunning bridal portraits.

And don’t forget your guy! Autumn is the perfect excuse to add texture to your groom’s attire. Give his look a touch of masculine style with fall textiles… a subtle charcoal wool vest or burgundy bow tie will keep him looking sharp on the big day.

Florals: we are head-over-heels for this season’s upcoming floral designs! We have been on the edge of our seats waiting for the arrival of rich moody hues and deep jewel tones. Finally, autumn heralds the arrival of rich burgundy blooms, complemented by emerald evergreens and indigo linens and ribbons. We’ll continue to see this year’s trend of loosely arranged, oversized, organic bouquets and centerpieces. Dramatic, elegant, and utterly swoon-worthy.

Dessert: take hints from a seasonal menu as you craft the perfect autumn wedding dessert. Mini pies served a la mode capture fall’s favorite flavors and deck a stylish dessert table. Or, if you prefer a picture-perfect wedding cake, choose autumn-inspired flavors like carrot or spice cake to melt in guests’ mouths.

Guest Comfort: as the weather turns crisp, keep guests cozy with thoughtful accommodations. A late-night coffee/hot chocolate bar or baskets of cozy knit blankets are sure to keep friends and family warm all evening long.

Details: as in any season, details will make your autumn wedding one-of-a-kind. Add personalization with calligraphed autumn leaves for place cards, or white gourds lettered with gold table numbers. Dive into saturated fall hues with indigo invitation suites, accented by metallic copper foil. Consider a few special touches here and there; these details are the finishing touch that polish any event at Texas best barn venue.
