Wedding Fit for a Fall Bride

September 30, 2016 / Design & Decor / By:

Fall is the season of bold flavors and colors; with spicy scents and sweet treats, a Fall bride is sure to shine!  If you’re planning a fall wedding, try these simple tips and tricks to making the most of your big-day décor, and create an all encompassing fall experience your guests are sure to never forget.

As friends and family enter your ceremony venue, leave them in awe with a beautifully accented runway, adorned with multicolored leaves sprinkled down the path leading directly to your groom.  Seasonal color themes for Fall include warm variations of honey gold, bold orange, burgundy, and the like; whether the hues in your wedding dress are white, cream, or colored, they will bounce beautifully off of these bold accents.  For an extra fall-season aisle alternative, try mini lit jack-o-lanterns! Guests will be seated in rustic wooden chairs, where delicate wedding programs await their review.

As the beautiful Fall bride traipses down her decorated aisle, she will don a seasonal bouquet complete.  For a rustic look, try adding some wheat to bright orange and green flowers.  For a traditional look, add some multicolored fall leaves! The Fall bride will be flanked by her bridesmaids wearing deep-hues dresses, I suggest the stunning ‘Eggplant’ color! If your Fall wedding is taking place outdoors, either bayside or in a colder seasonal climate than in Los Angeles, I suggest giving your guests a cozy surprise: some blankets to warm up with!

After the ceremony concludes, your guests will make their way to your reception, with a few custom touches!  For a creative nature-inspo guestbook, try having guests sign a giant tree trunk: a great centerpiece for your living room coffee table, with memories worth cherishing on display.  A second rustic guestbook idea is the popular thumbprint family tree piece, truly a one-of-a-kind keepsake.  Want to give a cute keepsake to your guests? Try these adorable metal pumpkin seat placards, sure to keep them happy and always remembering your wedding.  As guests are seated at long winding tables, they’ll absolutely gush over pumpkin centerpieces and warm-toned place settings.  (Pro tip: Here’s the DIY tutorial from Green Wedding Shoes for making your own centerpeices!) For a romantic touch when the lights go down, sprinkle some candlelight through the center.

As you dance the night away surrounded by beloved friends and family, don’t forget to indulge in some festive fall treats!  For dinner ask your wedding planner to request butternut squash shooters for appetizers, and pumpkin ravioli from the chef.  Be bold and accent your wedding cake with fall leaves and fruits.  If you’re a more traditional bride, try a classic white adorned with Fall leaves.  The ‘naked’ apple wedding cake option is perfect for the unconventional bride, and is sure to make her stand out!  If you’re looking for some delicious additions to your decadent dessert, try adding a make-your-own candy apple bar.  Last but not least, finish off the night with the perfect wedding favors in a jar: caramel corn or (AND) pumpkin pie!  Fall is the season of sweet scents, warmth, and smiles.  Choosing this season for your special day suggest that you are sentimental and bold! Embrace your inner free spirit and get ready to Fall In Love!
