If you are planning to have a fall wedding then it is wonderful time to get married as nature will be at its best. The beautiful fall colors and the rustic yet splendid natural beauty must be reflected in your wedding decor. A fall wedding gives you a lot of scope for experimentation with new ideas so go ahead and utilize this wonderful season to make your wedding a grand success!Ideas For A Fall Wedding
Choose A Rustic Wedding Venue
A fall wedding venue must involve a pure, serene environment exuding an unhampered beauty of nature all over. So select a proper wedding location which will be rustic and in the lap of nature. Anybody can have a wedding reception at a city church so why not fly off to the country side where nature is at its best? Select a quaint venue in the country side where you can have the wedding party and get married at a small local church.
Select carefully. Go and visit the inn and country cottages to ensure that there are proper accommodations for your wedding guests. Choose a setting where the fall colors will be at its best. Country side vine yards will also make a lovely venue.
An Outdoor Wedding will Also be A Great Idea
If you have a day time party then it cannot get better than having a lovely open air party for all your guests. If there is a beautiful garden overlooking the inn you could use a large canopy to cover the place and set your tables. However it is best if the venue is an open air one, the mild rays of the sun on a bright and beautiful day with the brilliantly colored red, orange and purple leaves from the maple trees has a whole new charm about it.
Order simple distressed wooden round tables and they can even do without a table cloth. The appeal of this theme is in its rustic country beauty. However use warm colors like brown, orange, golden etc. if you want to lay a table cloth. You can add more interesting décor elements to your wedding décor by adding large pumpkins around the garden randomly and placing wild flowers and other fall elements like pine cones and maple leaves to reiterate the theme of the wedding.
The natural beauty is so amazing at this time of the year that it cannot get better than this. However if you are having an old country style wedding make sure your decorations are in sync with the theme. Use fall colors for your centerpieces. Take wooden bowls and place pillar candles and pine cones along with flowers in deep pinks and reds to go with the color theme.
Another interesting idea would be to make a rough bird nest with twigs and fallen leaves and stuff the base with maple leaves and add pine cones and cream colored roses in it. It would look wonderfully rustic and old world.
A small carved pumpkin on each table is ideal if you are having a Halloween wedding during fall. Or you can make a centerpiece using fruits and vegetables of the season. The warm intonations of pumpkins mixed with the rosiness of apples and artichokes help usher in the colors of the season.
If you would like to move away from the ordinary then you must have a wedding cake that has the gorgeous fall colors in it. A lovely chocolate cake with cream and red roses will look lovely and taste delicious as well.
Another great idea for a fall wedding is to seat the guests at one long table. Especially if you are getting married in an old country inn with a regal appeal it would be a lovely idea and would look very grand too.
Your wedding favors must have the same appeal of fall as well. Use fall colored wrapping papers for your favors. You can hand your guests a box of maple candies or candles wrapped with maple leaves to synchronize with the theme of the wedding. Take these ideas and innovate for a great fall wedding.
