03 Oct Are You Planning a Fall Wedding?
Brisk autumn air, beautifully vibrant leaves, and pumpkin spiced everything – there’s a lot to love about fall. Fall is also one of the best wedding seasons. This is especially true in Arizona where the weather is neither too hot or too cold. If you’re planning a fall wedding this year, here are some trending ideas that may be of interest to you.
Fall Wedding Fashion
Trending fall wedding fashion includes two-piece bridal gowns and, if in a colder climate, fashionable lightweight jackets (denim is really hot this year). Three-piece suits in navy or burgundy are seasonally appropriate. Brides can accessorize with statement flats or heels and, of course, her custom designed diamond engagement ring and wedding band.
Balloons are not just for birthday parties anymore. Oversized arches, backdrop walls, and decorative columns are three ways to use balloons in your wedding décor. Mix mini balloons with eucalyptus, flowers, or foliage for a unique take on garland or table runners. To lend visual interest, incorporate balloons that contrast with the colors of fall wherever they are used.
Seasonal Food & Desserts
When it comes to your menu, some of the biggest trends this year, according to WeddingWire include: Interactive appetizer stations, using family recipes, farm-to-table dinners, and creative desserts. For a fall wedding, “creative desserts” such as mini apple pies and pumpkin spice cake pops can be served to your guests at the end of the night. These desserts should be in addition to, not in place of, your wedding cake.
A Woodsy Look You’ll Love
There is a big call for woodsy aesthetics this year – especially when mixed with greenery and wood. Wooden elements can include everything from the invitations to the tables and chairs. Use a variety of wooden cake stands, candle holders, and table numbers in the decor. Instead of traditional floral bouquets and centerpieces, think simple green leaves and garland, paired with mums and black-eyed Susans.
Do It Yourself Wedding Favors
Send guests home at the end of the night with a hot chocolate kit, complete with cocoa mix, mini marshmallows and reusable mug. Other popular ideas for seasonal favors are painted mini pumpkins, mini bottles of apple cider, blackberry jam, and pine saplings in burlap bags. Add a decal to any favor with your wedding details. Putting a DIY spin on the weddings favors makes them more meaningful.
