Fall In Love

Hello fellow New Englander’s!  It’s that time of year again- the leaves have started to change color, the air is crisp and cool, and the anticipation of the holiday’s is starting to set in. I’m sure you have a lot of plans in the works with Halloween and Thanksgiving right around the corner! So if you are planning a Fall wedding you might consider playing off of Autumn’s beauty by incorporating its natural elements to make your special day just as beautiful. Here are some ideas that we loved:

1) Choose your color scheme and take advantage of the bold and vibrant colors of the leaves; reds, oranges, yellows, browns, purples.  Playing with warm, contrasting colors like crimson and gold, cream and wine, or neutrals with pops of color, will set the tone of the day. Incorporate colors into every aspect- napkins, centerpieces, bridesmaids dresses, groomsmen ties, and anything else that needs a color. The fallen leaves, colors, and scenery create an atmosphere that you and your guests will love.

2) Don’t worry if you’re stuck trying to figure out a creative way to display place cards. An approach with simplicity would be to attach the placecards on to a small pumpkin or apple.  If you want to give guests something they may use after the fact, try a leaf paper holder.  This not only works as a creative way to display place cards but may double as a favor.

3) I’m a girl who loves fall because it is pumpkin season- pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes, and pumpkin carvings.  If you are the same way there are a few ways to incorporate pumpkins into your wedding.  Instead of a pillow for the ring bearer, tie the rings onto the stem of a small pumpkin for him to carry.  As a treat for the guests, serve pumpkin soup not in a bowl, but in a small pumpkin. Another way to add a special detail is to carve you and your groom’s initials into pumpkins. You can place these at the guest book or place card table.

 4) Small bouquets in a masons jar will give your centerpieces a rustic feel.  Want to try something besides flowers? Use a bundle of wheat tied with a bow in a vase. You may also want to try branches with fall colored leaves on them. Talk to your florist to come up with exactly the right look for your ideal wedding.

Lastly, don’t underestimate these cooler days.  Having shawls for yourself and bridesmaids is a nice touch and one that the girls will be so thankful for!  You can find them at Peach Couture for just $9.99 each! We wish you the best of luck in planning your fall wedding! May it be as just as you have imagined!
