The " href="http://www.invitationsbydawn.com/Wedding-Invitations/Autumn-and-Fall-Wedding-Invitations/index.cat">fall wedding invitation you send will say so much about your wedding colors, theme and style. An autumn wedding invitation with colorful leaves sends a message of beauty. A birch bark fall wedding invitation sets a natural tone. A wedding invitation with exotic and bold designs will show our artistic style. A wedding invitation on kraft paper with fun typography designs will hint at vintage flair.
It’s so beautiful outside during the autumn — why not exchange vows outdoors? Use nature as your chapel and create a rustic arbor with branches covered in mosses, leaves and fall flowers. If your wedding is in early fall, you can probably even celebrate outdoors with a cocktail hour under the trees or dinner on the lawn. Just be sure to plan for guests’ comfort and have a heated tent set up nearby for when the sun goes down. If your wedding is indoors, bring nature inside with reception table arrangements of twigs, leaves and vines. Use leaves as escort cards for a unique way to get guests to their reception seats.
When planning your fall wedding menu, go with what’s in season. Think warm, hearty, comfort food for your wedding dinner. Ripe cranberries in your cake, root vegetables in soup and the last of the season’s tomatoes in a salad will make a delicious seasonal treat. Then bring out the kid in every guest by serving caramel apples as a late-night snack.
One of the best things about fall weddings? Nature pretty much decorates itself! You can find almost everything you need to decorate your wedding by scouring the woods for leaves, vines and berries. Create a beautiful bouquet with colorful flowers and greenery.
“Fall” in love with planning your autumn wedding!
