Somehow it’s nearly time to start thinking about the fall. Today I’ve imagined autumn weddings for four different brides, starting with possible venues. These little inspiration boards subtly hint at the season with color, texture and a few fall leaves. Which autumn bride are you?

Tamera and Sean's fall wedding.


For the Playfully Modern Bride, I’ve imagined an urban restaurant as a venue and a palette of concrete gray and buttery ochre. Details are playfully unfussy, like the tweed fascinator and wavy calligraphy.

The Sweetly Romantic Bride loves a cozy fireplace. Here I chose a pale peach and gold for a feminine take on an autumn palette. A gold leaf hair comb and favor bags stamped with leaves are subtle ways to pull in the season.

The Whimsically Minimalist Bride is neither trendy nor traditional and favors an unexpected venue with a monochromatic look. The simple palette of black and white allows whimsical details like felt acorns and papercut art to stand out without being overwhelming

The Quirky Vintage Bride would choose a historic property for her wedding (of course!) and fill it with objects that reflect her love of all things old: Depression-era glass, a tea length dress, and yellow velvet ribbon.
