With autumn weddings, there are plenty of ideas that you can come up with to have a wonderful and memorable exchanging of vows. And because it's an off-peak season for weddings, it is even possible to save money on the ceremony or reception. Even if you do not save money, it will probably be easier to book your date of choice for your wedding ceremony location or reception location. Also, more vendors may be available to choose from!
Autumn weddings can be done indoors or outdoors, it would really depend on your preference. Of course the location and what the weather may be may sway you in one way or another. Even if you do not decide to have your ceremony or reception outdoors, make sure you get a lot of outdoor photos. The colors of the season will make rich, bold and beautiful backgrounds for all your photos and videos of the big day!
For indoor autumn weddings, you can decorate the room with autumn elements to have the fall feeling even if you're inside. You can use freshly harvested goods such as berries, pumpkins, apples, and grapes as centerpieces; place them in artistic bowls or vases to create a statement. Gold leaves, twigs, acorns and dark colored flowers can also be used.
When selecting invitations and other stationary items, you may want to look for rich autumn colors such as burnt orange, brown, burgundy, golden yellow, red and maroon. Of course, you can choose to search for themed wedding invitations. Some wonderful ideas include pumpkins, gourds, dark flowers, berries, acorns, leaves and trees.
Wedding favors for autumn weddings can be so many things. Some of our favorite choices include a box of chocolate, a bottle of jam or applesauce, a piece of pumpkin pie, or a seed packet. You can certainly have themed items too, like a wine stopper with leaves on it or a pumpkin scented candle.
For the wedding menu, you will need to decide if you are going traditional, adding a few fall flavors or making it completely themed. Some ideas for food, drinks and desserts include Thanksgiving dishes like roast turkey and vegetables, pumpkin pie, apple pie, cinnamon bread, applesauce, pumpkin soup, berries, and apple cider. You can also have the bartender prepare a themed apple or pumpkin cocktail designed for your wedding reception!
For your bridal bouquet, colorful autumn flowers will definitely complete your ensemble. You can have roses or calla lilies in different colors and shades. Sunflowers and mums are also in abundance during this time of the year. Add some greenery to your bouquet to highlight the colors of the flowers; berries like hypericum berries can be used as an additional decoration to add texture to your bouquet.
Your autumn wedding gown can be white, ivory, or any color you prefer. But for autumn weddings, ivory gown or gown in any darker shade would be perfect. But if you still prefer a white wedding dress, you can embellish it with a ribbon or a sash similar to the wedding motif. And since the autumn months are a little bit colder, if you still want to wear a sleeveless or strapless gown, make sure that it has a matching shawl or wrap.
Autumn weddings, just like any weddings, should be well-planned and organized even if you have all the surrounding resources. You must be aware of the weather conditions to avoid unnecessary problems; it is your big day, you should enjoy it to the fullest.
