Autumn is a wonderful time to get married. The season itself provides all kinds of inspirational wedding planning ideas, and the weather is not too hot and not too cold. If this sounds like the perfect season for you to say your "I do's," then you're going to love these fantastic fall wedding ideas that WhereBridesGo.com pulled from the season.
This is the time of year when the leaves on the trees begin changing into all sorts of breathtaking colors. Outdoors, you can find warm, rich shades of reds, oranges, deep yellows, browns, and dark greens. Plaid fabrics are popular in the fall, and they can add a wonderful texture to your wedding decor.
The weather is usually beautiful outdoors during the day and still just pleasantly chilly in the evening. Due to that fact plus all of those gorgeous colors we just talked about, rustic elements from outside are perfect to use for your wedding decorations. Natural elements such as branches, logs, and leaves can be beautifully utilized. This type of decor also blends wonderfully with the romantic shabby/chic look of burlap and lace.
Signs of the Season
Fall brings with it Halloween and Thanksgiving, so the pumpkins that are for sale everywhere this time of year can be incorporated into your wedding very nicely. We've already mentioned autumn's colorful leaves a couple of times. It can be fun to let the flower girl drop them down the aisle, or even to line your aisle on either side with them. Other items that seem to say "fall" are apples, acorns, and hay bales or straw.
Throws and blankets make excellent wedding favors for your guests if the wedding will last into the cool evening. You can have one placed over the back of each seat at the ceremony or reception, or maybe have a basket of them available near the entrance for people to grab if they need one. S'mores are a fun interactive dessert activity if you have a venue with a fire pit, and you can package up the s'mores ingredients for everyone to take home too.
Those are just a few fun ideas for a wedding that will happen in the fall, and much of that inspiration works equally as well for any type of event or celebration held in the months of autumn. When you browse through the pages of our online wedding store, it will inspire all kinds of wonderful wedding ideas in you. Take a look, find your favorites, and then we'll package them all up and ship them directly to you for your very special day!
