Ideas for a Fall Wedding

Updated on June 3, 2014

Ideas for a Seasonal Marriage Theme

With the proper attention to detail anytime of the year makes a good time to have a wedding. No matter when, where or how much you have to spend it can be amazing. I have a special page that I list a daily spotlight on and today it is dedicated to Autumn Weddings. Most ceremonies fall in the summer and June seems to be the month most chosen. Unfortunately if it is really hot on the special day you are sure to run into some monstrous problems. In the cooler weather melting make-up and sticky clothing is one problem you will not likely encounter. These are two things that are hard to get just right and the added stress will make any time of year hot.

Extra Little Things

Just a few things that you might need to complete your decor.

Reception Tables

The part of decorating that needs the most attention when doing the reception area are the tables. There are numerous little details that need to be taken care of. It is not as simple as getting out the dishes and setting the table. With and Autumn theme wedding you will be looking for things in the same color scheme as the fall. Burnt orange and rust are always nice with a touch of yellow to make all the colors pop.

Focus on Color Scheme

Every table should be prepared to fit the style and color scheme of the entire wedding. From the color of the clothes to the all around colors in the reception hall. This can be a fun endeavor and can be as easy as choosing the right table clothes and centerpieces to adding lighting to set off the proper effects. For a fall wedding the colors you might choose from are in the brownish scheme. Rust or orange is a popular choice.

Wedding Band Set - Autumn Style Rings

The very essence of your wedding are the rings. These are the one thing that you are going to see and interact with everyday for what we hope is a long, long time.

With this in mind take your time and choose wisely. I did not realize that I had a slight allergy to yellow gold until my finger broke out in a rash where my gold band sat on my finger. I remembered my mother telling me that she couldn't wear gold next to her skin which was why her wedding ring set was platinum. Another thing to take into consideration is the thickness of the ring. You can get them as small as 3mm to as wide as 8mm. If you are not much of a ring wearer don't go too wide because you will be wearing it. Especially consider the width when an engagement ring is also going to be worn.

"Save the Date "and "Thank You Cards"

One of the biggest parts of a wedding and the most time consuming. Choosing invitations and matching things can be a real pain. At one time the only way to do this was with books filled with choices of paper type and font. The choices were very limited but with time and the willingness to invest these options increased. Today you can find just about anything you want. If you are really creative you can even make your own. The most interesting items today are the very first piece of information that you will be sending out. Save the Date. This can be a simple card but my favorite is the refrigerator magnet. You can get these to match your invitations. Below are links to some of the products you will be looking for in order to get your special day announced.
