Autumn Wedding Ideas – If you’re thinking of setting your wedding date for an autumn month, there are so many ways to make your day special. You can take inspiration from the fall colors and the richness of nature’s harvest. Here are some ideas to get you started as you plan your event.
A wedding is easier to plan if you have a theme in mind. Since it’s going to be in fall, you could do a “Falling in Love” theme where everything is done in leaves and hearts. Or you could plan a “Harvest Blessings” event where you display the bounty of the harvest—apples, pumpkins, colorful corn—and ask everyone to bring canned food for the local food bank.
Even if your theme is just two colors—red and gold, teal and brown, or orange and cream—you can create a look that’s pulled together and seamless. Sprinkle touches of your theme throughout the ceremony and reception hall. I’ve included several inspiration boards to give you ideas for all aspects of the wedding from the ceremony to the decorations to the wedding favors.
Since it gets dark earlier in the fall, why not take advantage of the lack of light. Go for a candlelit ceremony and reception. Incorporate ivory pillar candles of varying heights and thicknesses for a charming effect.
Ask that the restaurant or hall turn the lights to dim so you’ll really get ambiance. If you’re worried about leaving open flames in certain areas, say where children will sit, you can always use flameless artificial candles. These days they look as pretty as the real thing and come without any danger.
