’Tis the season for fall weddings! With vibrant foliage and a cool snap in the air, not only is autumn a gorgeous time of year to celebrate your nuptials outdoors, but there are also so many ways to make the first day of your lives together seasonally special! Here are just a few:

  1. Worried about the crisp fall air becoming a wee bit chilly? Provide your guests with blankets and wraps to share during the ceremony! Serve hot coffee and cider along with your programs, and everyone is sure to be cozy and snug.
  2. A new season means you can be creative with your hors d’oeurves and desserts! Caramel apples, assorted pies, s’mores, and popcorn all lend a fun autumnal twist to classic wedding fare.
  3. Want to mix it up even more? Play with tradition by throwing crisp autumn leaves instead of rose petals at the end of your ceremony!

Planning an autumn wedding is the perfect time to let your creativity flow. Whether you choose unique favors, nostalgic catering offerings, or a playful way to celebrate tying the knot, your fall wedding is sure to be special!
