Making the Most of a Fall Wedding
Fall season is about change and transformation. Leaves are changing, the temperatures are cooling and everyone is getting ready for the holidays that are just around the corner. A Fall Wedding is a good season for both indoor and outdoor wedding receptions. Though the wedding is inspired by the season, it still needs to be decorated to follow that inspiration and carry the theme throughout.
Cake and Cupcakes
The wedding cake or cupcakes are one of the biggest centerpieces you will have at your reception. Therefore, they need to be decorated to go along with the wedding theme. If you are using cupcakes, top each one with a gumpaste acorn, leaf or sunflower. Wrap the cupcakes in fall cupcake wrappers and place them on a cupcake stand that towers just like a wedding cake. If you are using a wedding cake at your reception, keep it simple by using ivory or white fondant. Use a garland of leaves cascading down the side of the cake or make a cake topper using fall flowers. A autumn theme cake can also be decorated with fondant twigs and gumpaste leaves to give a more literal approach to the theme.
Table Decorations and Centerpieces
The table decorations are one of the most important parts of a wedding. Remember, your guests will spend a large portion of their time at their table so it is a prime opportunity to showcase your theme. Use fall-inspired centerpieces such as platters full of leaves, acorns and pine cones. If you are using flowers throughout the reception, then use centerpieces of fall flowers in watering cans or soup cans. Label table seats with leaf place card holders and tie off napkins with cut strands of leaf garlands.
