5 Ideas for a Beautiful Fall Wedding

Are you planning a wedding in October?  A November wedding? Fall is a popular time for weddings for many reasons. The beautiful colors, comfortable temperatures, and seasonal cocktails are just a few that come to mind. If you’re considering autumn for your wedding, read on to learn how to make the very most of the season.

1. Say “I do” in a Rustic Outdoor Setting

Take advantage of the stunning colors of the fall leaves and use them in your ceremony! By being outside someplace with some character, fall leaves, bench seating, and some warm blankets take the setting from overly-casual to cozy!

2. Use Seasonal Flowers

Flowers in the colors and textures of fall ties together your wedding with the season, even if your ceremony isn’t outdoors. Consider incorporating some fall flowers into your centerpieces or altar decorations.

3. Provide Blankets

Don’t let your guests and bridesmaids freeze! While beautiful, the autumn months are obviously chillier. Provide some matching blankets for your guests and bridesmaids at their seats to wear during the reception.

4. Consider Warm Drinks

There are few things better in the fall than some hot spiked apple cider or some mulled wine. A hot drink in a mug will not only keep your guests warm and merry but will look cozy and on-season.

5. Have a Fire Pit

A blazing fire (with or without smores) is symbolic of fall and will blanket your guests in warmth and light. Cozying up next to the fire with your friends and family will also make for great photo opportunities!
