Unsurprisingly, as the temperatures drop and low rolling grey clouds seem perpetually moving overhead, the forecast, and the trendsetters, call for plaid. Autumn and plaid have always been best friends, but this year they are poised to take things to the next level; they’re in love, and it’s hard not to fall in love right along with them.
Plaids are warm, cozy, friendly and inviting, which makes this new fall trend perfect for fall weddings. You can incorporate everything from plaid place settings and escort cards to plaid ties on all the groomsmen. You can create a textured, rustic look by using several different plaids in the same color scheme. You can dress it up or dress it down; black tie or barnyard are both appropriate. If you’re taking outdoor photos you’ve simply go to get yourself a good plaid blanket to snuggle up for some adorable shots.
What I think is especially great about this plaid trend is that it allows you to evoke fall in a less overt way. I’m all for pumpkins and leaves as I’ve said before, but this is a nice autumn option for those who don’t want a pumpkin on every table. In this way plaid is more a feeling than a symbol. Plaids can help to set the autumn tone and lucky for you, you can find them everywhere this year.
