Fall wedding ideas to fall in love with.
The beauty of autumn weddings is that the beauty is all around you! Nature becomes a gorgeous wedding backdrop, comfort foods are at your fingertips, and your wedding guests are ready to enjoy the last days of warm weather. So how can you reap the benefits of this sensational season? First of all, try to remember that less is more when it comes to décor. Use the nature around you to highlight the season’s appeal, and to lighten your spending. Combine greenery, like ferns, moss, or wheat, with colorful accents, such as pumpkins or apples. A timeless trend in fall wedding ideas is to use plenty of candles! Choose between votives, candelabras, or a variety of holders, and your guests will love the romantic, warm ambiance.
Delicious DIY wedding favors.
We love DIY wedding favors, but the autumn ideas seem to be the most delicious. Caramel apples, apple cider, apple pies— basically, anything with apples will be a hit! You could also create hot cocoa kits with all of the fixings, or give out small bottles of sweet maple syrup. We love food, but don’t forget about signature cocktails
! Toss out the tropical drinks and switch to craft beers or hard cider. You can even choose pumpkin beer to be festive for fall. DIY wedding favors can be time consuming, so remember to keep it simple!
What's 'in' for autumn wedding guest attire?
We didn’t forget about the guests when brainstorming fall wedding ideas! Wedding guest attire for fall can be tricky, but there are plenty of ways to be chic and comfortable, even in the crisp autumn air. What’s ‘in’ this season? Cap sleeves, neutral or jewel tones, and illusion necklines are great choices for your wedding guest attire. Add a leather jacket and gorgeous pumps to stay warm and stylish. Remember, layers are key for fall wedding guest attire. They’ll make sure you’re comfortable dancing the night away, and walking outside when the night is over.
