Weddings in the summer are popular. But a wedding in fall can look breathtaking. Autumn brings about various colors in nature that are simply unavailable the rest of the year. You can have a backdrop of colors including orange, red, yellow and brown leaves. Leaves falling from tree branches can also produce a dramatic effect.
You can easily incorporate these colors into your outdoor wedding theme. Here are a few ideas.
Look for an outdoor venue. For a fall wedding, you can look for a place outdoor where you can hold the ceremony and reception (or just the reception itself). It can be a yard, park, vineyard, or garden. The important thing is that the venue has trees and foliage, which will serve as a backdrop. In case of inclement weather, such as rain or high winds, you might want to use a tent or canopy. You can also rent outdoor heaters to provide extra comfort in case it rains. Party supply shops will usually carry these equipment.
Use colors consistent with autumn. For best results, your wedding décor’s color scheme should correspond with autumn colors, or colors that will contrast or complement autumn colors well. These can include orange, burgundy, and golden yellow. Brown can be a dominant color, as it will go well with falling orange leaves. Be consistent, and try not to use colors that will look awkward and out of touch with nature.
Use burgundy for a touch of elegance. Use a burgundy-colored carpet or runner on the aisle. You can use colorful petals and leaves for added effect. For outdoor fall weddings, padded chairs are an excellent choice. These will no longer need to be covered, as these look elegant already. As an alternative, you can use plain wooden chairs. These go well with the autumn look. If you will be using chair covers or sashes, use appropriate colors, such as orange, burgundy, or white with a colored accent. An alternative would be an ornament that corresponds with the fall theme.
Use autumn flowers. For your bouquet, you can use flowers like roses, gerbera daises, chrysanthemums, or hydrangeas. Burgundy and orange colored flowers are also an excellent choice in fall weddings.
Autumn-themed centerpieces. For the reception décor, this should also be consistent with the general theme of your wedding. You can either use autumn-colored tablecloths. Or, you can use white tablecloths with burgundy or orange accents in satin or organza. You can add candles of various scents. Autumn-related scents like pumpkin and cinnamon would be appropriate. These bring about an aura that says “harvest time.”
Earthy colors are an excellent choice in a fall wedding. These look great with a nature-oriented backdrop of falling leaves, trees, and cool autumn air. These colors also reproduce well in photographs and videos, and you will have vivid memories of your wedding for years to come. Consider using burgundy, orange and brown-dominant accents in your color motif. These can include your entourage gowns, carpet, tables, chairs, and other accessories like invitations and thank you cards.
