Fall Wedding Ideas

fall colorGetting married when autumn color is at its most vibrant? There's no better time, in fact, when the planet seems to blaze a trail of warm fall colors in celebration!

As the trees begin to combine green with brilliant reds, yellows and oranges (in northern climes, especially), many brides take the cue from Mother Nature and incorporate these vivid colors into their fall wedding themes.

Popular fall wedding flowers

Although spring and summer are usually thought of as the best time for flowers, fall is no exception. The season offers a rich variety of nature's bounty including multi-colored mums, carnations, freesias, and other flowers paired along with bright fall foliage.

Deep red roses have also become popular at fall weddings and blend in beautifully with other darker hues. Cornucopias fit the bill for decorative accents with baskets brimming with colorful gourds, apples and pomegranates.

Fall wedding venues

If you're lucky enough to live up north, you can plan the ceremony and/or the reception around a location that takes natural advantage of brilliant fall colors.

Consider a local winery, a cozy bed & breakfast, an orchard or a country lodge. Early autumn also lends itself nicely to an outdoor ceremony in a gazebo, botanical garden or near a lakeside park setting. Again, depending on your location, wrap up your wedding with a breathtakingly beautiful fall foliage tour honeymoon.

Fall wedding favors

In keeping with the season, small jars of jam or preserves make flavorful favors for your guests to bring home and enjoy. Also think about all colored candles, or autumn spice cookies wrapped in a ribbon of country calico. Small potted yellow mums make for a special 'thank you', as well, wrapped in colorful paper tied together with elegant gold ribbons.
