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!
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.
6. Wedding Cake
A sweet, towering cake fit for the fall sesason needs some leaf decor.
Enjoy the new season with a fall wedding. The great outdoors is a beautiful sight, with inspiration that surrounds. Plan your wedding theme around the elements of the season such as the beautiful colors of purple and the falling leaves from the trees. What type of wedding theme would you do for a fall wedding?
