From calligraphy-ing your cocktail list to flirty pink gowns and deep berry tones, these fall wedding trends are coming your way. By Mahira Jamshed
Pitch a tent
If you’re getting hitched during the most beautiful time of year, why not enjoy it? Decor is getting an all-natural spin this fall, and so too are venues. The next big thing? Tented weddings in remote outdoor settings. A challenge in Hong Kong, but it can be done!
Pretty in pink
Who says you have to wear white on your wedding day? A dash of colour can work wonders on some skin tones and might make you feel more like yourself. Effortlessly romantic blush and rose tones have modern brides looking elegant and ethereal all at once.
Bring it inside
Of course, we don’t want mud on our heels. So if you’re dreaming of an indoor wedding with a rustic touch, an easy way to pull it off is with wooden pallet art, which can double as escort boards. Print seating cards on creamy paper, pin it to the board, and you’ve got instant nature – without stepping foot outside.
A wonderful twist on classic red. Not only do shades of burgundy and plum match this season’s Pantone palette, but these rich colours make for gorgeous bouquets, centrepieces – and wine, of course!
Creative couples are writing their signature drinks on mirrors, chalkboards, and even wooden boards. After a more refined look? Have your cocktail list custom designed by a calligraphy artist, like this one by Hong Kong lettering artist, Jeremy Tow (IG @jeremytow_lcsc). Fancy!
All that glitters
Rustic copper accents are making their way into invitations, decorative bowls and table settings. The metal’s vintage vibe accentuates the warmer autumn tones and brightens up a room with minimal effort – a little goes a long way.
A new take on finger food, DIY taco bars are a seriously delicious trend. Match the tacos with a signature drinks – a margarita, perhaps? – and you’ve just won wedding of the year.
