The leaves are changing color, the weather is getting cooler, and fall is in the air! This means one thing: it’s time to start planning your fall wedding! If you’re looking for some inspiration, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog post, we will discuss some of our favorite fall wedding ideas. From decorations to food to attire, we will cover everything you need to know about planning a perfect autumn ceremony!
So, without further ado, let’s get started!
One of the first things you need to do when planning a fall wedding is to choose a color palette. This can be tricky, as there are so many beautiful colors to choose from! However, we recommend sticking to a simple color scheme of two or three colors. This will make your life much easier when it comes to choosing decorations and other wedding details. Some great fall colors to consider are burgundy, orange, yellow, and brown. Pastels work for any season because they look beautiful at any time of the year. While they’re typically used for warm-weather weddings, these retro hues look equally stunning against fall foliage.
Once you have your color palette chosen, it’s time to start thinking about decorations! One of our favorite fall decoration ideas is using pumpkins as centerpieces. You can either purchase small pumpkins from a local farm or grocery store, or you can carve your own! If you’re feeling extra creative, you can even paint the pumpkins to match your wedding colors. Another great fall decoration is using fall leaves as accents. Using real leaves and petals as décor is a great idea and environmentally smart to do!
When it comes to food, there are endless possibilities for a fall-themed menu. One of our favorites is a harvest-inspired buffet, featuring seasonal fruits and vegetables. Another option is a fall soup bar, where guests can choose from a variety of soups made with seasonal ingredients. And of course, no fall wedding would be complete without a dessert table full of pumpkin pies and apple crisps!
Lastly, let’s talk about attire. For the bride, we recommend a classic fall dress in a rich, jewel tone. Think burgundy, forest green, or deep purple. For the groom and groomsmen, we suggest khaki suits with brown or burgundy ties. And for the bridesmaids, how about matching them in a fall colored wrap. This is a great way to add some color and personality to their outfit without going overboard and it gives those photos a pop of color too!
