If you’re recently engaged and planning a wedding, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with everything on your to-do list. Even though there is a lot that goes into creating the perfect wedding, stress-free planning is possible.
To begin with, you’ll want to pick an incredible location for your wedding, and a wedding date when you know your wedding venue will be the most beautiful. An October wedding or November wedding would be perfect. With great weather and a little preparation, your autumn wedding will be spectacular.
Below, we’re sharing some fall wedding ideas to help you take advantage of the season. Read on to learn more!
Have a Natural Backdrop
Because fall is such a beautiful time of year, you won’t need to add a lot of decorations to your ceremony location. If it’s warm enough to have your ceremony outside, keep the rest of your decor simple so that the natural beauty really shines.
Pick Warm Colors
Pastels and bright colors may look great in spring and summer, but they would be totally out of place for an autumn wedding. Instead, get inspiration from the changing leaves. Deep reds, gold, and other warm colors are beautiful and seasonal.
Keep it Cozy
If you’re expecting it to cool down in the evening, you’ll want to have a warm wrap on hand to keep you comfortable. For the bride, a white shawl or simple cardigan makes a great cover-up. A pashmina in your wedding color can also make for a great bridesmaid’s gift!
Add a Bold Bouquet
When it comes to wedding ideas for fall bouquets, think beyond the traditional flowers. Using seasonal foliage–like bright gold leaves–you can design a unique arrangement that will stand out against your wedding dress as you’re walking down the aisle.
For the best wedding menu, look to seasonal fall produce for inspiration! There are so many incredible fruits and vegetables that are at their best in the fall and highlighting them in the food you serve will result in guests that are happy and full.
You can also consider working with a local restaurant or chef to create your own seasonal menu for your wedding.
Have a Fire
If you’re having a nighttime reception for your wedding, think about choosing a venue that has a fireplace. A cozy fire is a perfect centerpiece to a fall-inspired wedding.
This centerpiece will look stunning, get guests in the fall mindset, and keep your wedding party comfortable throughout the entire reception.
Get Creative With Transportation
If your ceremony and receptions are in two different locations on one property, you can always get creative with transportation options! For example, a hayride can be a fun, festive way to transport guests from one place to another.
Be sure to provide flannel blankets to guests if there’s a chill in the air and consider serving hot apple cider or mulled wine for the ride!
