Choose Fall Favorites For Food
Meat pies, mulled wine, and warm apple pies all scream ‘autumn’. For your wedding’s menu, choose warm comfort foods that will entice your guests on a crisp fall evening. Mix savory and sweet by incorporating foods with candied bacon or cranberry sauce. For dessert, you can serve warm cinnamon sugar donuts and coffee or have a table full of miniature pies for your guests to choose from.
Don’t Let The Guests Get Cold
Fall is a transitional season where the weather is not too warm and not too cold during the day — but at night the temperatures can dip down to the forties and thirties where we are. If you are having an outdoor wedding, take precautions to ensure your guests will be comfortable. You can do this by setting up outdoor patio heaters or offering blankets as wedding favors.
Prepare For The Weather
Fall weather is unpredictable and often rainy, but that doesn’t mean you can’t spend your fall wedding day outside. Just make sure to plan accordingly and reserve a wedding canopy to keep you and your guests dry. You can reserve a canopy as a backup, or fully embrace the “white tent wedding” look and use your tent rental to help you decorate.
Embrace Fall Colors
Choosing your wedding colors is often a fun part of the wedding planning process. For a fall wedding, we suggest choosing muted, deep colors as opposed to bright, bold colors. Think golds and dusty yellows, wine reds and burgundies, browns and burnt oranges, and winter greens. You can incorporate these colors with your linen rentals or with your floral arrangements and tabletop decorations.
