Fall Wedding Idea

Photo from Photography Group

The start of fall season is just a couple of days away! Fall is one of our favorite seasons – the sun sets a little bit sooner, the air is crisp, and the leaves are falling. It’s beautiful to see colors of amber, burgundy and forest green blanket the land. This time of year is amazing for an outdoor wedding. Take inspiration from the new season for your fall wedding.

1. Bridesmaids in Purple

When thinking about fall outdoor weddings, you’re probably thinking of orange or green, but look around nature and you’ll see all the wonderful colors. Shades of purple like plum, eggplant, and amethyst are nice complementing colors to the orange-colored leaves of fall. Great colors for your bridesmaids dresses!

Photo from Dreampurple Pinterest

2. Alternative Bouquet

Alternative, non-floral wedding bouquets are very popular. They’re unexpected yet a wonderful sight. Collect a bunch of fall leaves for your bouquet. Clean, little tree branches and earth-colored twine will keep the leaves upright for you to hold while walking down the aisle.

3. Leafy Aisle

When you’re outside, leaves are just everywhere! Strategically line them to create your wedding aisle.

4. Sunny Afternoon

For the picture-perfect kissing shot, set it in the fall when the sun is shining and the leaves are falling. Pictures will look quite magical!

5. Toss Leaves

Instead of the traditional rice toss at the end of the wedding, have guests throw leaves. It’s inexpensive and you don’t have to clean it up (we suggest the “rice toss” outside, of course!).  For more ideas, check out our post about Things to Toss at Weddings.
