According to the 2016 study, 34% of weddings took place in the summer while 40% of couples exchanged vows in the fall.
So, what's the reason fall weddings are becoming more popular?
Why couples are getting married in the fallThere are many reasons couples are choosing to say "I do" in the fall instead of the summer, and here are just a few of them.
- The lighting: Photos are one of the biggest parts of a wedding, and the lighting during autumn is gorgeous for pictures. The sun sets a little bit earlier, so you can capture the breathtaking sunset in the background of your photos.
- The backdrop: Speaking of photo backdrops, the fall foliage makes for a near-perfect backdrop. The bright red, orange, and yellow leaves look beautiful in the background of your photos.
- The dark colors: Often times, brides choose bright and light colors for their summer weddings. In the fall, a darker color pallet arises. Dark blues, deep pinks, maroons, and creamy whites steal the show at fall weddings.
