Some more fall wedding ideas
Here’s a good, well spoken and informative video to conclude our list of fall wedding ideas.
Here’s some other fall wedding ideas may give you a bit of an inspiration too.
Twigs and raffia
When it comes to decorating the wedding ceremony venue, a popular choice will be twigs and raffia. These items lend a rustic style and feeling to any fall wedding. Couples are using them to line the aisle the bride will be walking down as well as to add some style to the wedding altar.
These items are being tied into wedding receptions by making up part of the centerpieces. Tea light candles scattered on the tables complete the rustic look many couples are looking for, and are adding to the ambience of the room.
Colored lit lanterns
For slightly stronger light that still adds to the ambience of any fall wedding, another popular decorating choice is amber colored lit lanterns. The warm light that these lanterns give off goes perfectly with the colors most couples would use in a fall wedding.
This adds a simple touch of class to the dining tables at the wedding reception. Many couples are moving away from the more traditional centerpieces and beginning to use a single lantern as the focal point of each table.
The trend of using lanterns is even spreading as far as the stationary used for wedding invitations and thank you notes sent to guests after the ceremony.
Freshly baked pies
Though wedding cake is generally the dessert focused on the most during the reception, couples are now beginning to put that focus more on the pies they are serving to their guests.
Many people associate the fall season with freshly baked pies and couples can choose from different flavors such as blueberry, cherry, apple, or for an even more special touch, persimmon.
The new trend is to serve mini pies at the reception, in a variety of flavors so every guest can pick the one they will enjoy the most. This trend has inspired some couples to use mini pie tins in place of the more traditional wedding favors. Couples are even including a favorite pie recipe in each tin.
Aside from dessert, another big attraction at most wedding receptions and cocktail hours is the drinks offered to guests. To mark a fall wedding, couples are choosing to serve seasonal drinks such as caramel appletinis, which include vodka and come garnished with chocolate syrup.
To go along with the appletini theme couples are choosing to give out caramel apples to each wedding guest to take home with them.
Halloween theme weddings
For the truly brave couples, Halloween weddings are becoming an increasingly popular choice. This is providing couples with a built in theme that lends itself to many ideas. Some couples are even choosing one type of Halloween theme for their ceremony and a different one for their reception.
Since weddings are all about being creative, Halloween weddings lend themselves to this nicely. Couples getting married in the fall have many more choices available to them now than they did in the past.
