Close your eyes. Inhale the crisp fall air. Drink in the last remaining warmth of the sun’s rays. Imagine yourself surrounded by loved ones, a multitude of brightly colored leaves creating a dramatic backdrop for your perfect autumn wedding. As the season’s change, so too does your life as you vow to love, honor and cherish your significant other all the rest of your days. My our fall inspiration board “leaf” you falling in love with a fall wedding.
The Details: Colors surround you this fall. Look to nature for a color palate of blazing reds, burnt oranges, rustic yellows, forest greens, birch whites and maple browns. Let candles illuminate your space with a deep, romantic glow. Have your guests leave their thumbprint on a canvass tree as a memory of your special day. See an example below from a real wedding.
The Drink: For your signature wedding reception drink, try the Corzo Ruby Red. Cranberries and cinnamon bring a tart and sweet element to this bright red drink.
The Music: Wedding Music Unveiled suggests brides opt for more subdued music for their ceremony in Fall. Visit their site for a list of autumn inspired song suggestions. From My Wedding Music you can download and listen to a compilation of beautiful fall music from the CD The Harvest.
My favorite find is a list of best and worst wedding songs for fall from Gig Masters. Best song, Autumn Leaves (Frank Sinatra); Worst choice Hazy Shade of Winter (Simon & Garfunkel). And now you know.
