Fall wedding season is upon us! With the leaves in full bloom and crispness in the air, our expert team of weddings planners are sharing their tried and true tips to make your fall wedding a success.
On Picking Your Colors
Don’t feel forced to have a oranges, browns and burgundy schemed wedding just cause it’s fall. Seasonality is real in the wedding world, but the colors, the pies and the love for all things pumpkin spice and everything nice don’t have to overtake your wedding day! Lean into what you love. – Briana, Owner of Planned and Polished Events (Click here to work with Briana virtually!)
On Guest Comfort
Don’t forget the heaters! SO many couples skimp on heaters thinking it will be warm enough for their guests, and that’s usually not the case! – Autumn, Owner of Fall In Love Events (Click here to work with Autumn virtually!)
On Creating Your Timeline
You’re probably working on your timeline in the summer if you’re having a fall wedding. Remember the days get shorter in the Fall, so plan your timeline accordingly to make the most of natural light for your photos. – Marisela, Owner of Purest Hearts Weddings & Events (Click here to work with Marisela virtually!)
If your photographer is willing to give you a few early sneak peeks after the wedding, use those to double as thank you notes and Christmas cards. Your friends and family will love seeing them! – Alicia, Owner of Alicia Margaret Events (Click here to work with Alicia virtually!)
On Finalizing The Guest List
Fall is a time where kids are back to school and many annual activities resume. Before finalizing your wedding date and preferred location, make sure to communicate with these cherished individuals. Ensuring their availability on your chosen day will bring you peace of mind and make your celebration even more meaningful. – Cassandra, Owner of Cassandra Nichole Events (Click here to work with Cassandra virtually!)
On Selecting Your Menu
Incorporate the flavors and colors of the season into your menu. A sweet and savory butternut squash soup as a first course will warm guests up as temperatures start to cool down. It also adds a beautiful pop of color to the plate with its orangish-yellow hue. If you opt for a salad course, stone fruit is still in season, so add peaches, nectarines, plums and/or apricots for a bit of gusto. The influence of the Fall season can be woven into every bite and sipped on all the way through to desserts! – Kadija, Owner of Events by Kadija (Click here to work with Kadija virtually!)
