How to Make Your Fall Wedding Magical

Summer may be the busiest season for weddings, but there’s something about a fall wedding that is extra special. With cooler weather, cozy nights and the natural beauty of the season, fall weddings have a certain excitement and romance that just takes the cake (pun intended).

But pulling off an elegant event in the fall is no easy task. Include too many seasonal elements and you may risk veering off into the realm of cheesiness.

Have no fear! We’ll help you pull off the most beautiful fall wedding your guests have ever seen. Here are three characteristics of the perfect fall wedding:

1. Warm colors

Wedding-Colors

When you think of fall, the first thing that probably comes to mind are richly colored leaves falling from trees. Those colors can and should be incorporated in your wedding design. When choosing your wedding colors, consider hues such as plum, emerald, burgundy and orange. These colors will put you and your guests in the perfect fall mood.

Incorporate your colors in all aspects of your wedding. In the bridal party’s ensembles, the table settings, the decor and your flowers. When choosing your floral arrangements, don’t be afraid to include some other natural elements besides flowers, such as leaves or feathers.

2. Natural decor

Nature plays a big role in fall, and that should be reflected in your wedding and especially your decor. You could start by throwing your wedding at a rustic venue, such as a farm or vineyard, or even holding an outdoor wedding in your backyard. The natural setting sets the scene perfectly.

Besides your flowers, consider including other natural elements in your decor like acorns or leaves. These pine cone place card holders are perfect for your tables. You could even carve out pumpkins and place them around your venue. Just don’t go with a scary jack-o-lantern! Stick with something simple like a cutout heart.

3. Comfort food

Wedding-Food

With the cooler weather comes warm, inviting food. You’ll definitely want to serve some fall-inspired foods at your wedding. Soups make the perfect appetizer, and spiked apple cider is great choice for cocktails.

For dessert, you don’t have to stick with the traditional wedding cake. Pies are a fun trend, and going with pumpkin or apple pie is sure to be a hit with your guests! Throwing a Halloween wedding? Don’t forget the candy! Then, send your guests home with a sweet treat like these jam favors. They’ll be sure to remember your magical fall wedding!
