Fall is one of the most beautiful, colorful, and magical seasons to have a wedding. If you’re planning a fall wedding, you may be thinking that you have plenty of time to prepare. While September isn’t right around the corner, it’ll be here before we know it.
We totally understand that when this realization comes about it can cause panic for a lot of couples. But, with our six steps for planning your beautiful wedding reception will be stress free.
So, breathe easy. We’ll get through this together!
5 STEPS TO PLANNING A BEAUTIFUL FALL WEDDING & RECEPTION
PLAN FOR WEATHER CHANGES
Weather is crazy. It doesn’t matter how much you plan, it can definitely disrupt the best laid plans, especially during the transition between summer and fall. Some days are exceptionally hot, while others have that definite fall crispness in the air.
That’s why we recommend having some form of cover up for the wedding party. You can have sweaters, shawls, or sophisticated caplets. If you really want to get cozy, bring some blankets. It will be a fun way to stay warm when making smores around the post-reception bonfire.
COORDINATE YOUR FAVORS WITH THE SEASON
Choosing the right wedding favors for your guests may not seem like a big deal, but it has been known to be a source of stress. That’s why we suggest taking it easy on yourself. Use the season to help you make your choice for an unforgettable party favor.
Some of our favorites:
Caramel candied apples
A spice pack for making spiced apple cider
Miniature bottles of spicy cinnamon apple liqueur.
REMEMBER THAT THIS IS THE PERFECT TIME FOR VIBRANT COLORS
Will you be having bridesmaids at your wedding? If you haven’t figured out what they’re going to wear yet, try starting with a color. A fall wedding is the perfect time to wear rich, vibrant colors. Garnet red, deep purple, orange, beautiful berry, and dark teal are beautiful fall color options for bridesmaid dresses. And an added bonus, these colors look great on most skin tones.
PLAN A BEAUTIFUL REHEARSAL DINNER
Wedding rehearsals are a must for any wedding to be successful. Everyone needs to know what to do, where to go, and what’s expected of them on your special day. However, for some people, this can be a long, drawn-out, boring affair. And when people are bored, they get distracted and stop paying attention or leave altogether.
When this happens, the happy couple isn’t so happy anymore. Avoid having to deal with this by having a beautiful rehearsal dinner as a reward. Let everyone know what they have to look forward to, and that the faster and more productive everyone works through this rehearsal – the faster they get to the food.
Your rehearsal dinner doesn’t have to be as elaborate as your wedding meal, but you can make it nice and tasty. Some couples have opted to have an early Thanksgiving-like meal: turkey with all the trimmings, and pumpkin pie for dessert.
