Know the weather, but also have a back-up plan.
Like spring, fall is a season with changes in weather that can bring rain, warmth, or cold. One week it still feels like summer, and the next you need wool sweaters. Back-up plans are very important when planning a fall wedding. If you want your wedding ceremony outdoors, make sure that you have a contingency location in case the weather does not cooperate.
In early fall, the weather will still be warm during the day, but as the sun sets, it will cool off quickly. The smartest plan is to incorporate cute toppers and layers into your looks. From cozy wraps to faux fur shrugs, there is a cover-up out there to match any or bridesmaid dress.
Find a venue with both indoor and outdoor spaces.
A fall wedding is all about being outside with the colors and the magic of a cool, clear evening. Find a venue that will allow you to use both indoor and outdoor spaces. Keep warm around fires, and serve lots of hot cocoa to get everyone into a festive fall spirit! Utilize the inside for dinner and dancing.
Select your colors that you love, and that goes well with the season.
Planning a fall wedding isn’t just about the traditional orange and brown color palettes. From glam garnets and sapphires to creamy earth tones, the latest in fall wedding color palettes are spectacularly diverse. Find one that works well into your vision and how you interpret the season.
Plan a wedding menu that emphasizes fall colors & flavors.
Favorite fall foods are generally more flavorful and decadent than what you would plan for a hot summer event. From pumpkin spice everything to sticky caramel apples, have fun celebrating the season with an eclectic menu.
