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.
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.
