As the leaves begin to change colors and the air begins to chill, the season for fall weddings is fast approaching.
Fall weddings carry a unique atmosphere. The warm colors, the rustic decor, and the distinctive light create a whimsical set up for a magnetic-styled event. We’ve gathered some ideas for an event full of color and spirit.
Nature brings us such beautiful changes this time of the year, it simply has to be combined in your event! Whether it is in the fall flower arrangements, centerpieces combined with wheat and hay, and foliage leaves spread all through the decor. You can even use this easy weather to have your reception or ceremony outdoors (which is a great solution for these social distancing times), under a canopy of flowers or leaves, and bring the amazing fall lightning into your event (and photos!).

This is the time to go crazy with your wedding pallet choices. Not the average white and champagne, but warm, earth tones like orange, dark red, gold or jewel tones like sapphire or emerald.
Take the seasonal advantage of the rustic nature to create the most amazing and rich bouquet for yourself, flower crowns for your bridesmaids, and for your SO- a floral boutonniere, that will compliment the earthy theme.

Just in case it gets a little chilly, plan a warm beverage bar with coffee, tea, hot chocolate, warm sangria bowl, or hot ciders (alcoholic or not).

The rustic approach allows you to go the full fall bounty with grazing platters. Pile up cheeses, meats, bread, nuts and seasonal fruits for a feast styled dinner.
Warm homey giveaways such as scented candles, caramel apples, tea fusions, or a small jar of scented spices. You can even DIY – what will give you extra points for the “best wedding favor ever” awards.
Few more colors for you to enjoy…
