With the colorful foliage and perfect temperatures, fall is a popular time for weddings in Bucks County. For anyone planning to tie the knot this autumn, here are a few fun trends to tap, making for a memorable event:
Outdoor weddings in rustic, barn settings are still popular, although this fall’s trend is to add a bit of polish with fine china or rich fabrics such as velvet. Bucks Happening Wedding Venue Winner Durham Hill Farm in Pipersville offers the perfect setting.
With cooler temperatures, fall gowns are featuring long sleeves, cashmere sweaters and two piece ensembles. Also popular this season, a second dress for the reception. For designer gowns at affordable prices, check out La Belle Mariée Bridal in Langhorne. La Belle Mariée was our 2019 Bucks Happening List Winner for Bridal Boutique .
Gourmet coffee stands and barbecue stations are in favor this fall, which explains how 2 Little Piggys BBQ and Catering in Levittown became a finalist as a Bucks Happening List Wedding Caterer.
The Cake..or is it Pie?
Statement cakes with dark colored icing are in demand this fall, as are wedding fruit pies. Iris's Sweet Side in Buckingham can dish up whatever a bride fancies. The bakery is a Bucks Happening List Winner.
Ivy vines, thistle and small leafy twigs are giving bouquets and flower arrangements a whimsical appeal this fall. Wine-colored dahlias and pampas or wheat grass add a touch of grace. Always Beautiful Floral Design Studio in Quakertown excels at such arrangements, garnering it Bucks Happening List Winner title for Best Wedding Florist.
Invitations on natural paper with water color images or plaid or geometric borders and custom calligraphy are in vogue this fall. Plum, burgundy and copper colors highlight the season. Bucks Happening List Winner LOVEhaus Lifestyling in Langhorne has a wonderful collection to choose from.
Another Royal Wedding spillover trend is painted-portrait like photography featuring great lighting and dramatic architectural backdrops, building décor or stunning nature scenes. Bucks County provides a natural backdrop with so many historical settings. Bucks Happenings List Winner for Best Wedding Photography Luria Visuals Custom Productions in Warminster captures many of those backdrops in their work.
Blackboards as welcome signs at venue entrance or glass in ornate frames with calligraphied cocktail offerings are replacing paper signs at weddings. Bucks Happening List Winner for Antique Shop Bucks County Estate Traders in Perkasie is a great stop for vintage frames. Eleven Eleven Handmade Signs in Bensalem, Bucks Happening List Crafting Vendor Winner, is the go-to for anything sign related.
It’s up to individual taste whether to go with a band or a DJ, but in Bucks County, musical acts are expected to put on a visual show. That’s why bands such as Bensalem-based Bigg Romeo, a Bucks Happening List Winner for Favorite Wedding Band, are so popular. They add lighting and props to make the show memorable. DJs such as Bucks Happening List Winner Total Entertainment in Yardley will bring along a photo booth to add to the fun.
This fall’s makeup for brides is more au naturale with hues of browns, champagne and burnt orange tones. Bucks Happening List Make-Up Winner Beauty by Jeannine in Bensalem customizes its makeup application to bring out a bride’s natural glow.
