Fall is a time of
vibrant colors... those lucky enough to live in an area where
the leaves turn, may want to consider having your wedding
ceremony outdoors amongst the trees. Some outdoor locations that
would suit a fall wedding would be: a rustic farm, a country
inn, an apple orchard, a vineyard, a courtyard, or a nearby
Whether you live in a area with firey fall colors or not, you
can still create a spectacular autumn wedding by choosing a
color scheme of autumn colors (brown, copper, burgundy, deep
reds, rust, wine, burnt orange, orange-yellows, mustard yellow,
yellow-green, gold). With colored accents and appropriate
decorations, you can easily bring the outdoors inside too.
The key to
pulling off a coordinated wedding reception:
Evoke your theme throughout the affair. Whether that
theme is as general as a season or a feeling, or as specific as
a special flower, it should be the subtle thread that ties
everything together. Your location, invitations, flowers, menu,
cake, and favors should all cleverly reflect one common concept.
Then, get as creative as you can!
Three can't-miss ideas for fall wedding
(ARA) - When you think of prime wedding months do May and June
spring to mind? You might be surprised to learn that October and
November are also popular months for nuptials. When you realize
autumn brings not only cooler weather, but less busy caterers or
wedding venues, the season's appeal is easy to understand.
Whether you're finalizing plans for a wedding this fall or
planning ahead for autumn 2013, you'll be looking for ideas to
add seasonal spice to your big day. From fall wedding decoration
ideas to seasonally appropriate menu suggestions, here are some
trends to consider for your fall wedding:
Alfresco and all natural
"Many brides cash in on fall's ample sunshine and cooler
temperatures by holding their weddings outside," says Ray Miller
of My Wedding Reception Ideas.com. "An outdoor wedding
celebrates the season and plays to another popular trend -
In many areas of the country, autumn brings less heat and rain.
Plus, saying your "I do's" outside, surrounded by fall's vibrant
hues, makes Mother Nature your co-decorator.
If you're considering having your wedding outside, don't
overlook unusual venues. Municipal parks, national parks,
botanical gardens, fruit orchards and even zoos can all be fun
and interesting places for a wedding.
Seasonal decor and accessories
The colors and spirit of fall can also inspire your accessories
and decor. Rustic materials and touches like raffia, twigs and
straw can add seasonal flair to decorations. Leaf motifs and
autumnal hues can be used to adorn everything from cake cutting
sets and table linens to table centerpieces and slipcovers.
You can even tie your theme to fall holidays like Halloween or
Thanksgiving. Leaf-shaped votive holders, personal-size pumpkins
and other Halloween wedding favor ideas can add seasonally
appropriate fun to your celebration.
A fall wedding also opens up opportunities to create memorable
menus that play on the flavors of the season. Just as spring and
summer wedding menus benefit from the season's fresh produce,
you can incorporate the fruits of the fall harvest into your
Fall vegetables like pumpkin, butternut squash, beets, carrots
and rutabagas can be served slow-roasted for a side dish that
capitalizes on the season's most colorful and nutritious
offerings. Greens such as spinach, endive and celery root come
into season in autumn and can be incorporated into soups and
salads for a pop of flavor and vitamins.
Main course choices also open up in fall, when great game comes
in season. Replacing boring beef with venison or mundane chicken
with pheasant not only puts a seasonal stamp on a menu, but
creates a culinary experience wedding guests will remember.
