Autumn is here and bring on ALL of the fall flavors, outfits, and WEDDINGS! September and October are known for being the most popular months to tie the knot – & we totally understand why. The weather is (mostly) perfect, the fall months have a romance about them that the summer can not replicate, and the colors in the fall are the perfect tones for a wedding.
Fall is a season of activities; apple and pumpkin picking, drinking apple cider by the bon fire, halloween, + so much more. It’s a naturally beautiful time of year (especially in the mid – west) so to wed in the fall months is honestly a given for a lot of couples.
We are here to give you some inspiration if you’re planning your wedding for the autumn months. Bring on the (boozy) pumpkin spice, cozy blankets, and rustic chic wedding touches!
The perfect location
Finding the perfect location is one of the first things to check off your to – do list! If you want to fully dive into the fall theme; finding a rustic location to say “I do” is key. A barn, or industrial style venue will tie the theme in perfectly.
Set the tone with your invites
Your wedding invitation sets the tone for your wedding. It should be on theme with how you want your wedding to turn out! Show your guests a glimpse into what they can expect on the big day.
Use fall foliage for wedding decor
Get inspired by the colors around you! Use the seasonal foliage to bring your ceremony and reception space alive. Burgundy, deep orange, ivory, and greenery are a no fail color pallet for the fall!
Serve fall inspired beverages
I think it’s a given that every fall wedding should have a boozy version of some fall staple drinks. Spiked apple cider and pumpkin spice are ones to surely please a crowd! You can even get creative with the bar decor or set up a self serve station at the cocktail hour.
Have blankets out for your guests to use
Depending where you are at regionally – the fall months can get pretty chilly when the sun goes down! Have a few cute blankets for your guests to use in case they get chilly.
Use fresh fruit or flowers on your cake
We love the idea of using fresh fruit on your cake to bring our those fall colors in a natural way. Fruit not your thing? Use fresh flowers!
