The Wedding Location

The most common location for Autumn is an old church with the Autumn leaves everywhere. But you may try the old mills or barns. Yes, barns. If the decoration is right, the barns could be very dramatic, elegant, but casual. It will make the wedding looks different. Another perfect location is the vineyard. The most important is look for a spot where the leaves are changing. It will give an outstanding atmosphere.

Of course parent's backyard is another perfect place to have a wedding this fall, and what about a club like university club ? Worth trying.

The Flowers and Decoration

Generally for Autumn wedding flowers you may use :
Mini Calla Lily
Fall leaves
And even some harvests like corns, wheat, and pumpkins

Decorate the site with Autumn tone such as autumn leaves, traditional fall colors like orange, red, and brown. Take advantage of Autumn as your decoration. Like some leaves scatted in the reception table, when the flower girls enter the room or the site they could throw some colorful leaves, the groom and bride may walk on the Autumn leaves, and decorate the room with golden or brown ribbon for the chair.

For wedding gown, the bride could try off-white wedding dress color. You may consider the changing in wheather too. Sometime it could warm but turn chilly right away, so consider the wedding gown that has stoles or wraps.
The color for wedding gown could be vary from creme with golden beading and red accents. The fabrics could be velvet or brocade.   

The Wedding Cake Style
You may put some flowers or leaves to decorate the cake. Almost any cake could be used in Autumn wedding like chocolate wedding cake or spiced cake.

The Wedding Menu
Traditional Autumn wedding menu like pumpkin pie and roasted turkey. But a standing lamb grilled and caesar salad are great too consider. Serve champagne for toast, but you could change it with ginger ale. You could start the meal with soup served in a hollowed out pumpkin, accompanied by whole grain rolls. Serve warm apple cider in glass mugs with a cinnamon stick stirrer and a baked apple as dessert.
