The leaves are falling, the temperature is dropping and it’s the perfect time of year for your dream wedding. Whether you’re planning an indoor or outdoor celebration, these fall-focused ideas will ensure your wedding day is fabulous and comfortable. Here are five essentials for your autumn nuptials:
Floral arrangements play a crucial role in your wedding day. Whether you choose to go with a classic arrangement, like the hand tied bouquet, or you prefer a dramatic cascading bouquet, stick to a vibrant colour pallet.
Dress for The Weather
The temperature is a huge factor when planning a wedding in the fall, and one element of your wedding that you can’t control. Ensure that you and your bridesmaids are equipped to handle the chilliness this season often brings. Cover ups for yourself and your bridesmaids are a must. A wrap to throw over the shoulders or a sleeved cardigan that pairs with the dress are both options. If you aren’t a fan of cardigans, a simple, long-sleeved dress is also an option.
Tip: If you’re planning an outdoor ceremony ask the venue if they have outdoor tower heaters. This simple detail will make all the difference if there’s a sudden cold snap on your big day.
Bold, elegant, or modest; when it comes to centerpieces there are so many different options, so get creative and choose a design that matches your personality. Consider bringing in traditional autumn pieces like spiced pine cones, pumpkins, or fall foliage. Whether you choose a beautiful and simple design like a set of candles surrounded by a small flower arrangement, or a large, eye-catching vase with flowers, have fun and express yourself!
Weddings usually have a theme that is expressed with certain accent pieces. Card holders, a board with the bride and groom’s name, even guest gifts can be tied together by the theme. A trendy theme that works well for fall weddings is to use wood accents. Having names placed on small little wood dishes, wood accents in the centerpiece, and hors d’oeuvres served on a wooden slab are a few ways you can work this fall theme throughout your accent pieces.
Choose a Magical Location
Location is critical, which is why choosing the venue is one of the most important decisions you’ll make when planning your wedding. You want to have the perfect location for your special day – one that’s large enough to accommodate all your guests, menus that you’re excited to taste, a sound system to support your DJ or band’s needs, and the perfect lighting.
