Happily Ever After Fall Wedding Celebrations
This fall, there’s a briskness mixed with love in the air. Many happy couples are getting married and are having weddings inspired by the season. Here are some of our favorite autumn ideas for tying the knot whether you’ve just got engaged or are getting married soon.
Well Played Shades: Colors
The obvious choices for a fall wedding color palette are shades of oranges, reds, and yellows. We’re seeing a lot of couples selecting just one of these typical autumn colors and then adding their own spin to it. We love the look of a burgundy mixed with light pinks and bright greens. Or a golden orange highlighted with blue hues and white accents.
Take Center Stage: Centerpieces
Think about the type of wedding you’re having and match your centerpieces to it. For casual weddings, go with a rustic look with wildflowers in mason jars. For more elegance, work with your florist on stylish vases filled with beautiful flowers. These geometric gold greenery printable table number cards add the perfect finishing touch to your table decor.
Set the Right Tone: Table Settings
Make each of your guests feel exclusive with their own special place setting. For fall, we are seeing a lot of playing with textures with gauzy table runners topped with metallic placemats and patterned napkins. These different materials extend to the plates, chargers, and glassware as well. Our stunning menu cards match perfectly with the geometric gold greenery table number cards to complete the look.
Have a Seat: Tables and Chairs
A hot trend for fall weddings is to mix and match the seating. Select tables of different shapes and sizes or that are made of wood or metal. Chairs can be a mix of various colors and styles and can be spread out in a pattern or randomly mixed up. These unique set ups add interest and will have guests exclaiming as they enter your reception.
Place with Grace: Place cards
Not everything has to be pumpkins. Go with more elegant fruit options such as stone fruits. Create a lush look with persimmons, pomegranates, and pears for beautiful, rich colors. We especially like the look of the fruits on the place cards table and suggest using these fall themed name cards that are simple to download and print out.
Dressed to Impress: Wedding Dresses
The good news is that the cape look is in for fall wedding dresses. This means an extra layer of fabric to keep you warm on a cooler evening. The cape is sometimes called a shoulder duster or a ribbon train and it adds a nice element of drama to your look. If you want a slightly different look then consider a statement bolero with ruched or puff sleeves. Make it removable for a new look as the night goes on.
Go to New Heights: Favor Tags
Maybe you’re heading to the mountains for your wedding and using the stunning foliage as a backdrop to your big day. Incorporate the mountain theme into your wedding favors with these tags that will take your favors to new heights! The tags are an instant download and editable template that you can easily add your names, wedding date, or other fun details.
Dress Your Squad: Bridesmaid Dresses
If your wedding is planned for a cool fall day, then think about a heavier fabric for your bridesmaid dresses or accessorize your girls with a cute bolero or colorful pashmina. You could even consider long-sleeved bridesmaid dresses if your wedding is late in the season. If you’re going with the mountain theme, then gift your bridesmaids with these adorable scrunchies available in multiple colors.
Flower Power: Bridal Bouquet
If you choose flowers that are synonymous with fall then consider deep burgundy dahlias with a few anemones sprinkled in. If you love peonies but they are hard to find in your area, then think about roses instead. If you want to add even more seasonal taste, then add a few berries or acorns to your bouquet for a bit of a rustic touch.
A Sweet Surprise: Wedding Cake
Of course, we have to end with dessert. For a fall wedding, we love the simplicity of a white frosted cake surrounded by a few pretty fresh berries and branches for a rustic yet modern touch. If you prefer a more edible version, then consider accenting the white cake with buttercream flowers in various shades of red, yellow, and orange colors.
A Fond Farewell: The Honeymoon
Well, not quite the end yet! No wedding is complete until the honeymoon is over! The new version is the nanomoon which has replaced the minimoon. No longer can couples hop a flight to some far-off tropical destination. Instead, husband and wife are taking a nanomoon and going on a drivable trip to a nearby area such as a beach or vineyard. They hope to take a longer vacation once the world opens up more.
