The fall season is a beautiful time to get married. The colors of the leaves can create an unmatched backdrop for your outdoor wedding pictures and give you a number of brilliant options for your wedding reception theme. Regardless of the venue you choose for your reception, you may want to consider one or several of these ideas for capturing the true essence of fall for your event.
Choose Fall Shades
Selecting the flowers for your wedding can be a major undertaking. If you are holding a fall wedding, it only makes sense that you would choose colors that complement the dark, rich shades of yellows, oranges and reds that you are likely to see on the trees during this time of year.
A Country Feel
If you’re looking for something more unique for your fall wedding, consider creating a country or farm theme at your reception. Purchase hay bales, pumpkins and other items that are often associated with the fall season. You can also select something a little different for your dessert table. Instead of a traditional cake, or perhaps in addition to, set out a selection of your favorite pies, such as apple and pumpkin. This will give your guests a greater selection and fit well with your fall country theme.
Implement the Smells of Fall
You can fully immerse your guests in a sense of fall by implementing some of the smells of the season. Purchase candles or scented wax burners that will emit the smells of cinnamon, spice and vanilla. You may even be able to find a special fall scent that will help enhance that autumn atmosphere you are trying to create.
A fall wedding can be beautiful and unique when you implement one or several of these ideas, giving you a day you won’t soon forget, nor will your guests.
