If you want to plan your wedding when the weather’s cooler and venues are more affordable, fall is a beautiful season for the event. And since autumn is such a unique time of year, it lends itself to many creative and specific ideas. Here are five simple seasonal details that can give your celebration a style your guests will fall for.
How to Give Your Wedding a Fall-Friendly Style
- Fresh Seasonal Flowers
Flowers are a staple of wedding décor, from the bridal bouquet to the ceremonial archways or centerpieces. However, typical spring and summer varieties can be difficult to obtain when fall arrives. Instead, outfit your venue with autumnal blooms in deep, rich colors—such as chrysanthemums, dahlias, and gerberas.
- Miniature Pumpkin Place Cards
As Halloween and Thanksgiving approach, finding small pumpkins for your décor should be a breeze. Put these mini-gourds to use by attaching the seating place cards for your guests. If you want to add a special touch, paint each pumpkin with the couple’s initials.
- Leaves in the Aisle
If you want something different than rose petals in the aisle, consider lining the pathway with crunchy, colorful fall leaves. The simple—and affordable—detail adds a romantic, seasonal touch that transforms the ceremony into an autumnal wonderland. They can also be fun for flower girls and boys to spread.
- Candlelit Centerpieces
During the fall, daylight is limited. Fortunately, you can embrace the early sunsets by incorporating candles in your centerpieces. Whether they are floating varieties held in elaborate glass vases or pillar candles inside lanterns, this detail will give your reception a warm and cozy glow.
- Cider Cocktails
When planning the drinks for your reception, consider offering specialty cocktails that showcase autumnal flavors—such as apple cider. Cider pairs perfectly with hot toddies, Fireball, and rum—and can provide your guests with a warm but satisfying beverage.
