Fall Wedding Trends

Fall Wedding Trends

 

It’s been about a year since our last blog about wedding trends and according to our wedding photographers a lot has changed.  Our team is seeing a lot of common themes through their lenses and are being asked to provide an evolving style of photography.

When it comes to the bride, lace is definitely back!!  While strapless dresses were all the rage a year ago, illusion necklines and sleeves are now in fashion with no signs of going away soon.  Our wedding photographers tell us the lace adds a vintage touch to modern styles.

 

The wedding party has also changed.  Brothers, sisters and friends in the bridal party are now accompanied down the aisle with the couple’s pets.  Yes, “fur babies” have made their way to the wedding day, and are making a splash in the process.

 

Floral arrangements are trending like photography.  Tight and well-structured bouquets of roses are being replaced by loose, less formal arrangements.  And English Garden flowers have finally established themselves.  English garden flowers started to appear about three years ago, but have only recently become mainstream.  Perhaps the flowers match the informal, “genuine” feel of more and more ceremonies.

Photography, like flowers, has become less structured.  While the flower displays may look more natural, a trained florist is still needed to make them look so.

 

The same holds true for photography.  Prom-like poses have given way to “unposed” poses.  More and more couples want to look natural, but are asking for guidance to make sure the photos still look great.  This isn’t true photojournalism, but something we call faux-tojournalism.  It’s the art of making the posed photo look like the couple was simply caught in the act of enjoying their romantic wedding day.

The biggest trend, and one  not likely to go away, is the planning process.  Couples once visited all of their vendors, meeting photographers, florists, DJs and dress makers, to name a few.  Now the process is done “virtually.”  Dresses are purchased online, DJs seldom meet their clients until the big day, and even our consultations are done on Facetime or other digital media.  Initially, we were challenged by this process, but we quickly learned how to get all the important little nuggets of information we need to capture each wedding the way the couples want them to be remembered.

 

The online experience hasn’t stopped with the planning.  It’s also making its way to the wedding itself in the form of wedding hashtags and custom Snapchat filters.

While styles come and go, we don’t expect the planning and photography trends to disappear for quite some time.  And we have created some amazing photographs as a result.

 

Wedding Symbolism

Wedding Symbolism   Is there symbolism in weddings? Of course there is.  We all know the wedding ring is round because it has no end like a couple’s love for each other.  But what other symbolism is there?  Let’s take a look at some of the lesser known history behind the traditions.   The bridal bouquet Women have been adorned...

  Last weekend we visited my grandmother for her birthday and, as grandmothers do, she pulled out a few photo albums and reminisced about the good old days when all of her family was under one roof.    We saw some of her old standby books; her favorite albums pulled out almost any time somebody...
