With the weather often being more comfortable in the fall than in summer, and the beautiful fall foliage that provides the perfect backdrop for outdoor weddings and pictures, it’s no wonder that fall is increasingly becoming the season of choice for weddings.
If you’re planning a fall wedding, get some inspiration from the fall wedding ideas below:
Start with a menu that is seasonally inspired. Fall foods provide comfort while taking advantage of the bounty of garden fare that is available. Think of incorporating meats with paired sauces, creamy soups and bisques, and fresh, garden-inspired fare. Add popular fall pies to your dessert selection such as the classic apple pie or a pie featuring your favourite berry.
Feature a special autumn drinks menu that includes beverages like apple cider mimosas, maple bourbon cocktails, hot toddies, and hot spiked ciders, as well as an array of flavoured coffees for after dinner. Drinks with Amaro, scotch and chocolate bitters is the perfect example of creatively layering fall flavours into a unique cocktail experience.
Choose rich fall colours to use throughout your décors, such as brick, dark green, cranberry, and charcoal grey to add depth to your wedding décor. Deep jewel tones of amber, emerald, sapphire, and garnet create an exceptionally elegant atmosphere. And, if it suits your style or theme, don’t be afraid to incorporate unanticipated fall colours like light or hot pink.
Take advantage of the gorgeous scenery and use elements provided by nature in your décor, including twigs, leaves, and flowers. For a lovely colour and texture contrast, add fall leaves to your bouquet. Or place a green garland in an entryway for the ceremony for guests to enjoy upon entering.
For a truly romantic fall setting, accent main colours like merlot and rust with shades of cream. Instead of trying to precisely match colours, experiment with different tones and shades within your palette to attain a more authentic look and feel.
Create an assorted floral tablescape by grouping flowers, such as mustard-yellow ranunculus and pink roses, in clusters. Displayed in clear vases of various heights and sizes, this visual arrangement is colourful, romantic, and dreamy.
Wheat is another fantastic fall themed wedding decoration option. Create bundles of wheat to use for centrepieces or incorporate wheat into your bouquet — or both! If using in a bouquet, stems of wheat look especially lovely when added to cream and soft pink coloured roses. Wrap in burlap, and you have an ideal fall wedding bouquet.
When it comes to fall weddings, there is an abundance of creative ideas from seasonally-inspired menus to unique tablescapes to choose from. Using these ideas to spark your imagination, be sure that, in the end, your personal style, taste, and personality shines through!
