Typically, when people think of weddings, they imagine a warm sunny day, fields and sundresses. A summer or late-spring wedding is a popular choice and for good reason – the weather is great and the abundance of sunshine puts everyone in a good mood. However, there are a number of reasons to consider having your special day in the golden months before the frost – beyond the lower prices that come with marrying outside of the busy season. Whether you’re newly engaged or updating your Wedding board, here are 10 compelling reasons to consider having your wedding in the Fall:
1. Burgandy, copper and gold
How beautiful are these warm, complementing bridesmaids’ dresses? It would be nice to have a , Fall wedding just to get to enjoy a lot of these colors!
2. Leaves for confetti
Leaves are a recurring theme in Fall weddings because they are just so darn beautiful! For the environmentally conscious, they’re the perfect choice instead of confetti, flower petals or rice, and there’s something just so romantic about falling leaves…
3. Crown of leaves
If you love the idea of a tiara on your wedding day, we think you’ll love this nature-goddess-esque option. And if you’re not a big fan of tiaras or flower crowns, this understated and beautiful detail might be just what you’re looking for.
4. Mason jars… with leaves!
If you like to get crafty, you can decorate a few mason jars with leaves. You could even color-coordinate, with separate yellow, orange and red jars for different tables at the reception. There are so many possibilities when you take things into your own hands and apply some imagination!
5. Sparklers for favors
While everyone loves a sweet treat, it might be even sweeter to offer your guests sparklers to take some awesome pictures with. You can draw hearts in the air or try to spell your name out. They’re a great way for your guests to have fun and be kids for a few minutes and the photos at the end will look fantastic!
6. Blankets and Bonfires
What better excuse than a cool Fall evening to wrap up and get cosy with your loved one by a crackling fire? Blankets add a warm touch to a beautiful night.
Another option for the crafty bride – or any bride with a crafty entourage – is the pumpkin-lantern. Not just for Halloween, pumpkins are a versatile squash plant with a lot of potential to be tapped into. And if your favourite dessert happens to be pumpkin pie, all the more reason to have your wedding in the Fall!
8. Sunflowers still in bloom
A gorgeous flower to behold, the sunflower will bring sunshine to any weather conditions. A sweet reminder of the summer just ended, sunflowers are still in bloom in early Fall.
9. Whisky and Hot Drinks
Some whisky to warm up Uncle Ted, some hot chocolate for your nephews and nieces, everyone’s a winner when it comes to seasonal drinks in the Fall.
10. A memorable affair
