Are you planning on having a fall wedding? Whether these are last minute additions you’d love for your wedding this fall, or something you can keep in the back of your mind for next fall, check out these awesome ideas from The Knot!
1. Rustic invitations
Are you planning to have a rustic themed wedding? Or are you stumped at what kind of wedding invitations to send? Stop looking at the many different shades of white and off-white, and start thinking about something that looks like the invitation in this photo. What a gorgeous invite! It’ll have your guests smile as they open it. The first look your guests have into your wedding is most likely the invitation you send out. So bring them into one of your most special days with a cozy looking invite!
2. Jewel-toned dresses
Show your bridesmaids some love by having them wear jewel-toned dresses! They can all wear one shade, like ruby red, or they can all wear different jewel-toned dresses! Other great colors to consider are dark purple, deep green, and dark blue.
3. Fall decor
So what exactly does fall decor entail? You can use pine cones as place card holders for seats. They can be part of a centerpiece with candles, acorns and flowers. You can even put mini pine cones in your bouquet of flowers! But don’t just limit yourself to pine cones. When you think of fall, don’t you just think of crunchy orange, yellow, and red leaves? Whether they’re real or not, you can use leaves as part of a centerpiece. They can also be a wonderful rose petal replacement down your aisle! (You may want to use fake leaves here, because real ones will definitely be crunchy!) If you have an outdoor wedding, or a rustic indoor wedding, you can put out haystacks, firewood, barrels, and baskets.
4. Fall Food
Play up the menu with food to go along with the fall season! Not all the food options have to be fall-related food, but you can throw in a bit of fall-inspired items here and there. You can start off with a pumpkin soup, there could be grilled zucchini slices in part of a main entree, you could serve butternut squash ravioli, and there could be fresh cinnamon apple pie! Mmm, doesn’t that sound delicious?
5. Chilly weather prep
Outdoor weddings are so much fun! They’re great for spring and summer, but a tiny bit trickier during fall and winter. But don’t fret! You can definitely still have your dream outdoor wedding in the fall! Embrace the crisp, cool air! You can set up a cute area with warm wraps for your guests in case they get cold! You can also set up various heat lamps throughout your outdoor seating and standing areas. If it’s possible, you can set up mini fire pits too! (Then, your guests can roast marshmallows and make s’mores!) You can also have a hot chocolate station, which will be a hit with the kids!
