From autumn color palettes to seasonal decorations, we're here to help you get in the spirit of fall!

Our favorite fall wedding ideas from season decor to Autumn color palettes.Simple and unique fall wedding ideas.

Autumn Color Palettes

When considering your palette, stick to rich, berry hues that will complement the season's scenery. Deep colors such as eggplant, claret, navywine, and berry will stand out beautifully against the colorful, changing leaves. Add in accents of rustic greens, soft pinks, burnt oranges, and soft neutrals for a truly gorgeous touch to your autumn color palette.

Autumn Color Palettes for Fall

Warm Bridesmaid Gifts

Give your 'maids the gift of warmth with a cozy cardigan that will not only complement your wedding colors, but can easily be worn again! Whether they wear them in all of the wedding pictures or none, they'll be thankful to have something that's warm, practical, and cute!

Seasonal Decorations

If you're truly embracing the autumn theme of your wedding, incorporating seasonal decorations is a must. From painted pumpkins and gourd centerpieces, to candlelit lighting and rustic embellishments, there are tons of easy and unique ways to add a touch of fall.

Painted pumpkins covered in glitter are perfect for fall wedding decorations. White pumpkins and candles are pretty and elegant for a fall wedding.

Favorite Traditional Treats

Impress your guests with traditional favorites, from the main dish to heart-warming drinks. Consider a main entrée of a classic turkey dinner or something more unique like butternut squash ravioli. For desserts, we love the idea of a DIY caramel apple bar or single-serve apple and pumpkin pies. And don't forget the drinks! Hot cocoa and cider are a must--especially with a splash of Bailey's and rum.

DIY Guest Favors

What's better than an edible favor? Keeping with your fall theme, give the gift of seasonal treats such as small tins filled with caramel corn, bags of tea, simple s'mores kits, jars of homemade jam, or bottles of maple syrup.

Create a personal s'mores kit as a favor for each of your guests! Burlap and pine cones are rustic elements for a fall wedding.

Measurement Guide

Taking Your Measurements

For the most accurate measurements, do not measure over your clothing. Your measurements should be taken while wearing undergarments similar to the ones you will wear with your dress. The measuring tape shouldn't be pulled too tight or have too much slack, and should always be parallel with the floor. 

**Wedding apparel is typically sized differently than retail clothing, so keep in mind that it's not uncommon to find yourself requiring alterations.




Bust size: Wrap the tape around your back and under your arms at the fullest part of your bust (not underneath the bust).

Waist size:  While standing up straight, bend at the waist to one side. Take the measurement where the natural crease happens in your side. This should be a few inches above your belly button.

Hip size: Standing with your feet together, wrap the tape around the fullest part of your hips and butt to get this measurement.

Choosing your correct size

Compare  these three measurements to the Kennedy Blue size chart above. It is very important that you order the largest size that corresponds to your measurements. For example, if your bust measures 40.5" (size 12), your waist measures 31" (size 10) and your hips measure 41.5" (size 8), we advise that you order a size 12, and get your dress altered down to custom fit your body. Ordering anything smaller than a size 12 would not fit in the bust area. Please note: Our bridal gown size chart is different than the bridesmaids sizing and is listed below.
