Fall is a romantic time to get married. It’s the season of earthy colors, beautiful fall foliage, family hayrides, and warm apple pie. If you’re planning a fall wedding, here are four tips to make your big day a success.
1. It’s all about timing
Depending where you live, fall weather can be chilly and windy. You may have your heart set on an outdoor wedding ceremony during the daytime, but just remember that if the nighttime reception is outdoors too, you and your guests might be too cold to enjoy the celebration. Be prepared with portable heaters, hot drinks, or consider moving your reception inside.
2. Take advantage of the seasonal colors
If you haven’t decided on a venue for your wedding ceremony, consider taking advantage of the changing leaves and rustic feel of autumn. Backyard barns, wine vineyards, and scenic orchards are beautiful places to say “I do,” and they’re less expensive than hotel ballrooms or traditional wedding venues.
3. Stick to a fall color palette
When you think of fall colors, brown and orange usually come to mind. But if you mix in vibrant fall tones like red and yellow, you can warm up an otherwise dull color theme. Use metallic accents such as gold and copper to your wedding invitations to add a sophisticated flair. Send your guests home with fun fall wedding favors that go with your wedding color theme; caramel apples are a tasty treat and they’re easy to make.
4. Go organic
Use organic fall elements to decorate your wedding reception. Serve hot apple cider, pumpkin pie, or spiced apple fritters to incorporate the fall theme. Add unique personal touches like carved pumpkins for centerpieces, bales of hay for extra seating, and cinnamon scented candles to create a beautiful fall ambiance with a nostalgic twist.
Adding unique personal touches and incorporating little autumn-themed details can help you make your fall wedding day a dream come true. Keep these four wedding planning tips in mind and good luck with your fall wedding.
