While we love all four of Colorado’s seasons, there’s just something special about fall. From the cool, crisp mountain air to the breathtaking colors throughout the Rockies, it’s no surprise that many Colorado brides choose to get married during this time of year.

Fall weddings are some of our favorites! With moderate temperatures, you won’t have to worry about a groomsmen sweating through his suit or your getaway car getting stuck in a blizzard. The rich autumnal color palettes are reason enough to get married in the fall! Type in “fall bridal bouquets” on Pinterest and you’ll find yourself scrolling for hours, swooning at all of the gorgeous varieties.

When it comes to bridal style and beauty for fall weddings, we’ve partnered with Rocky Mountain Bride to bring you ten style tips for your autumn soiree.

1. Don’t feel limited by the season!

RMB: “While a long sleeve wedding gown is absolutely stunning in the fall, wear what makes you feel beautiful. If you try on a strapless ball gown that has your name written all over it, there is no reason you can’t say “Yes” to the dress!”

2. Don’t shy away from shimmer!

RMB: “Dresses with sparkle can often have a glamorous vibe, but if you’re hosting an outdoor ceremony don’t rule it out! Choosing to wear a wedding gown with some shimmer can create a magical, ethereal feel at any Rocky Mountain venue.”

3. Who said you have to wear white?

RMB: “Try to avoid a bright white for a fall wedding – ivory is always going to be more flattering and will look more natural with fall colors.”

4. Consider mixing dress tones!

RMB: “For a fall wedding, mix the tones on your gown (like an ivory lace over a nude lining) to create a romantic and natural feel for an outdoor ceremony. Blush, nude, gold and champagnes also look beautiful in the fall.”

5. It’s all in the accessories!

RMB: “Create a fall feeling with your accessories. Warm golds, wrapped headbands and rich florals can create a fall vibe with even the most classic style gowns.”

6. A floral crown is still okay!

RMB: “Floral crowns are still on trend but for fall weddings consider waiting to wear that floral crown for your reception. Keeping a classic look for the ceremony guarantees your photos to be timeless, and it creates two different looks from the ceremony to reception.”

7. The weather is unpredictable!

RMB: “The Rocky Mountain region is known for fast and unpredictable weather changes. Consider buying a shawl or lace jacket to pair with your wedding gown. Just in case! A change of shoes might not be a bad idea either.”

8. The groom!

RMB: “Navy or darker grey suits create great fall looks for the groom. If the groom wants to go for a bolder look, a custom hunter green or burgundy suit looks great and photographs amazingly.”

9. The wedding party!

RMB: “Deep burgundy, champagne sequins, dark hunter green or navy blue are great colors for your bridal party. Keep it simple with one color, or mix a few tones up for a laid-back fall feel.

10. Don’t forget your guests!

RMB: “Let guests know what kind of terrain to expect. Certain outdoor venues may require sturdier shoe choices. And, if the reception is also outdoors, a friendly reminder to bring a light jacket for those cooler fall evenings is appropriate. If you’re expecting a chillier weather forecast due to location, providing blankets for guests to cozy up in is a good idea.”

This Madison James (Style MJ455) gown comes in the perfect tones including champagne, ivory, nude and almond. And, with just the right amount of shimmer, you’ll be sure to shine on your big day!

On November 29 – December 1, we will be hosting a trunk show featuring the 2019 collection by Madison James along with Allure Couture.
