Fall Wedding Themes - Choosing The Wedding Colors

If you are planning a fall-themed wedding, one of the first things you will probably want to address is the wedding colors. Autumn Weddings are full of beautiful, warm colors such as golds, browns, reds, oranges, and yellows. You can use these colors in anything and everything. Some examples would be linens, favors, flowers, centerpieces, decorations, and bridesmaid dresses.

When most people decide what colors to use they typically choose one main color and sometimes they add in one or two accent colors. So if you are going to use fall wedding colors in your wedding I would start by narrowing it down to one or two colors and then really think about those colors and how they would look in your wedding.

For instance, if the main color you are choosing is Yellow think about all the major places you will use that as either a solid color, with no other colors to soften it up or accent it as well as places you will add additional colors.

Can you picture a yellow wedding cake, yellow bouquets, and floral arrangements, your bridesmaids in yellow bridesmaid dresses, or yellow wedding invitations? These are the types of questions you are going to want to ask yourself before making a decision between different wedding color schemes. If you can picture that and you think it is perfect you can move on to accent colors. If not, you might want to reconsider what your main wedding color will be!

Fall Wedding Themes - The Flowers

When planning Fall weddings, you can choose your flowers either by color or the ones available during the season. It is not that difficult to find colored flowers to match your own colors when you are having a fall theme wedding. You can start with a base of roses or carnations, and add other beautiful fall selections into your bouquets, centerpieces, and arrangements.

If budget is a concern it is important to remember to flowers in season are a much more budget-friendly option than ones out of season. If you are using a florist you should ask for the differences in prices for different combinations.

For instance, if you know you want to use a flower out of season you might want to ask how much it would be for that flower to make up 100% of your bouquets or arrangements and then also ask for different combos and percentages. What if you used 75% that out of season flower and mixed in 25% a specific in-season flower and so forth.

Even though many people think all the flowers they want to use are only available in the spring or summer this is just not true. There are some flowers available all year long. If you want a list of wedding flowers in season in the fall as well as a list of wedding flowers in season all year long check out Fall Flowers For Wedding. For instance, you can use in-season flowers like mini calla lilies, lavender, or marigold or you can use flowers such as lilies, orchids, roses, or gardenia which are in season all year long.

Fall Wedding Themes - Wedding Stationery

When trying to come up with Wedding Ideas For Fall – one of the easiest places to add this theme is in the stationery. The stationery is one of the first things that your guests get that is associated with your wedding. So if you are having a fall theme wedding, why now assert the theme early by choosing stationery in neutral colors or adorned with fall flowers or leaves? This way when your guests think about your wedding, they will think about the beautiful season which you are highlighting as well.

There are so many different stationery choices on the market today that you be able to find something you love pretty easily. For instance, you can get traditional with a white or cream invitation with just a brown border or you could get something with pumpkins or leaves on it. There is really something for everyone out there and available for you to find!

Of course, if your wedding is even more specific than seasonal themed but themed towards a Fall Holiday such as Thanksgiving or Halloween you can take things a step further with your wedding stationery by focusing on those holidays and choosing invitations with cornucopias or Turkeys for thanksgiving or getting wedding stationery especially geared towards a Halloween celebration including Gothic themes, pumpkins, or choosing a darker theme or color scheme! There are so many different fall wedding invitations to choose from!

Fall Wedding Themes - The Favors You Give

You can find fall wedding themes in so many different elements of wedding planning and shopping and the wedding favors are no different! If you are having a fall theme wedding and looking for fall wedding ideas related to your favors you may not have to straw very far from the colors and flavors of the season! You can choose autumn wedding favors based upon the colors, the decorations on the favors, or the tastes (if you are giving away edible favors). Some great choices are scented candles, flavored hot beverages, or fall-themed wine stoppers. You can get candy bars with leaves on the wrappers or pumpkin-flavored items like pumpkin spice latte or cappuccino mixes.

With wedding favors, you can choose to buy favors in bulk, make your own or do a combination of these two choices. For instance, you might choose to buy favors like candles or coffee to give to your guests but then make some sort of fall treat bag as well. You could make homemade trail mix, pumpkin or apple-flavored desserts like mini cakes, cookies or muffins, or even some mini candy bars to celebrate Halloween.
