Cooler weather is upon us. Changing leaves, pumpkins, deeper colors and heavier clothing are all aspects of Fall that {most} people know and love. Being that we are located in Upstate NY, we are anticipating the blend of colors like reds, yellows & oranges that will create our scenery. If you are a Fall bride who is having either an indoor or outdoor wedding, a GORGEOUS color to theme your special day around is Merlot. If you plan your reception indoors, consider having your photographer travel around outside with your bridal party, this way they can capture “Fall-type” photos.

This color focuses around and emphases natural elements. Incorporate greenery that will pair well with merlot colored flowers and decor. This is also a PERFECT choice to add touches of metallic golds and coppers – you are thinking more a rich, warm and formal event. Plate-ware for weddings often come in shades of ivory/cream with gold accents. Copper votive holders might also be a nice touch to pull your table decor together.

Bridal party attire is easy!!! Bridesmaid gowns come in several color options – even Merlot and gold! This is also a piece of cake for groomsmen. If you are thinking black tuxedos, there are always options for Merlot shaded ties, bowties, pocket squares & socks. Here at Dress Your Fancy, we carry bridesmaids gowns from Hayley Paige Occasions and The Dessy Group. Photos of styles are available online as well as the different colors they are each available in. We source our tuxedo rentals from Jim’s Formal Wear.

Hint ~ This is also a perfect color choice if you and your spouse to be are wine lovers! Your wedding day will be complete with wine themed favors and decor.
