The fall is a perfect time to get married. Couples can save thousands of dollars by waiting patiently while the popular summer months pass by and when the leaves start to change color, vendor prices drop. That’s not all though; the changing of the season brings gorgeous opportunities for photos and unique décor ideas.
Fall flower arrangements can add stunning color to both the head and guest tables and can include yellows, oranges and reds. Some couples choose to add pumpkin or gourd accents while others add small berries to the bouquet for some extra color and decoration. These fall bouquets make beautiful but simple décor for guest tables.
If it is warm enough to have a wedding outdoors, consider pumpkins lining the aisle and an arbor made with different colored leaves woven in between the branches. You can add flowers for some additional color and the arbor will help the brides dress stand out against the beautifully contrasting background.
For placeholders, consider purchasing fall leaves from a local craft store. Get a silver colored Sharpie and write your guests names on each leaf and put them at the table amidst the other decorations. This will incorporate more fall colorings into your reception and complete the look of the tables.
Halloween is a popular time to get married for those who love the holiday, and stores will offer no shortage of Halloween and fall themed décor. Couples can make their reception spooky by decorating with candles covered in cobwebs, jack o lanterns, or bare branches holding lanterns. If going full Halloween is a little much but you love the idea of having pumpkins, buy small ones and hollow them out and place a tealight inside. This is a great addition to a floral centerpiece to surround the vase.
