Weddings are moving indoors with the cooler weather, but that doesn't mean you can't have a lush, lavish affair. "Fall weddings are going to be rich and luxurious," Carley Roney of The Knot said.

She said despite the economy, there are inexpensive ways to add luxury to a wedding. Gold flatware instead of silver is one way.

One table was inspired by Marie Antoinette. In addition to the flatware, the table was presented with gold rimmed glasses, patterned dishes and blush colored flowers and menus likes scrolls garnished with inexpensive trinkets.

Fall trends for gowns include the asymmetrical look.

"It's a fun new twist that's red carpet inspired," she said.

The crumb catcher neckline is also popular, and can give the illusion of a bigger bust.

Boleros and shrugs offer an elegant cover-up.

When you're kicking up your heels show off a little blue with blue shoes, a blue clutch, blue jewels] or there's also the not-so-subtle blue feather option. It's very sex and the city.

Jonathan Pogash can help you create a wedding cocktail. He says there are three important components to a drink.

"You taste with your eyes first, then with your mouth," he said.

So his Pomegranate Elderflower cocktail rimmed with lavender sugar is especially aromatic. A drink featuring muddled pears and champagne gets a visual pop with edible silver brushed onto pear garnish. It's yet another way to indulge your guests.
