Crisp autumn air, vibrant leaves fluttering on the trees, and the anticipation of coming holidays— what better setting could there be for a wedding? If you plan to swear your love to each other in the fall, you’ll want to enjoy every bit of that autumn beauty and richness. Find out how to make the most of fall garden weddings!
Choose Complementary Colors
Ask the venue staff to show you photos of your wedding space during the fall. At Nanina’s in the Park, we have plenty of lovely images that will give you an idea of what you can expect the gardens to look like in autumn. This way, you can plan ahead and choose colors that will complement the natural beauty all around you. Shutterfly has a collection of fall wedding colors for 2018, and ElleDecor.com also has a lavish selection of autumn hues from which to choose.
Use Natural Elements for Your Wedding Decor
You’ll want the help of a talented florist to design beautiful bouquets for your wedding; but you may be able to DIY some of the centerpieces and decor elements yourself, with the help of your wedding party. You may have a friend who owns land where you can source boughs of colorful leaves, tall grasses, ferns, wood slices, and other natural elements to add to your decor.
Consider Fall-Themed Favors
What about offering your guests miniature pies to take home? Tiny boxes of maple candy, pumpkin-shaped bottle openers, miniature bottles of maple syrup, or wooden coasters imprinted with leaves are all charming choices as favors for a fall garden wedding. You could opt for a set of fall spreaders, a pumpkin trinket dish, cider mix packets in mugs, or fall spiced soaps. If you love a good DIY, craft picture frames from twigs and include a photo of the two of you for each of your guests.
Embellish Your Outfits with Fall Accessories
Do you love cute boots, patterned scarves, rich wraps, or embellished sleeves? Those elements go hand-in-hand with autumn style, so feel free to add them to your wedding ensemble. Let your bridal party enjoy the fall fashion as well, with stylish boots, vintage scarves or wraps, cute gloves, or chic hats or fascinators in the style of royal weddings.
Enjoy Nature’s Fall Photo Op
Fall garden weddings are a photographer’s delight! Let your photographer go all out with photos of you two in the colorful garden setting. Get playful with the leaves, the branches, the autumn wind— it will all yield some joyful, memorable images!
One of the best things about a fall garden wedding is its versatility— it can be as rustic or as elegant as you want it to be. Whether you go with a country chic wedding, a rustic bohemian wedding, or another style of your choice, the autumn setting will complement the theme to perfection.
