Planning Your Fall Wedding

Fall is a beautiful time of year to plan a wedding. It is usually much cooler in those months leading up to winter and offers a beautiful color pattern unlike the spring and summer weddings. Whether you’re looking for fall wedding ceremony ideas or just a few tips to get you started, here are some fall ideas to keep in mind. Your big day is just that, yours. Make it what you want with these beautiful fall theme ideas.

Color Themes

While you may automatically think orange for fall, there are actually a wide range of color themes for you to choose from. You can choose shades of orange or yellow, but you could also choose shades of red that go well with fall. Consider combining a dark burgundy with a lighter pink tone to help you balance out the palette. Beautiful brown shades go well together too such as a deep chocolate brown all the way to a lighter tan color.

Metallic shades can work as well in your decorations. Golds can work well with your other darker tones to bring some neutral shades into the décor.


Whether you go with orange or not, pumpkins scream fall. You can easily have pumpkin décor without the orange that you’re trying to avoid. Consider having them painted the colors of your wedding which can be easily done. You can also incorporate leaves of all colors to help add more fall to the ceremony and reception. These are easily found in your local craft stores or you can talk with your decorator and coordinator to give them your ideas.

Bouquet Options

If you want to truly go with a fall look for your whole ceremony, consider different options for your bouquet than the traditional flowers. Consider having your florist make up something with beautiful leaves, pine cones, and other fall items you’d see around. You can even incorporate it into the boutonniere’s for the gentlemen in the wedding with pinecones and leaves. You can have a beautifully classy fall wedding whether you choose to go with the full orange and yellow theme or if you choose more shades of autumn to adorn your unique wedding ceremony.

  • Some couples always have the secret desire to have their wedding ceremony in a beautiful and idyllic vacation spot. A destination wedding promises exotic locales and a beautiful ambiance.
  • Some couples have families who are scattered all around the world. So, they plan to choose a spot which would be suitable for everyone. Thus, they plan a destination wedding.
  • Some couples are not too fond of traditional hotels and big reception halls as most of the weddings are scheduled there. They prefer something unique and beautiful. Thus, destination wedding seems to be the perfect option for them.
  • Some couples do not like to invite too many guests and want to keep the marriage ceremony a private affair. For such couples, destination weddings are the perfect choice.

However, there are some important things that must be considered when you are planning a destination wedding. Although a destination wedding sounds extremely romantic, it needs to be planned out well or else it would be a disaster. Here are few things that you must keep in mind:

  • You must start your planning as early as possible. You need to investigate properly about the location that you have chosen for your wedding especially the means to reach there. Also in the case of destination wedding, you need to invite your guests much earlier.
  • It is also very essential to stick to your budget when you are planning a destination wedding. You must keep an upper limit which you should not cross by any means. You can do the bookings online as that would save some amount of your money.
  • You must also communicate with your guests properly. You should talk to your guests about the itinerary of the event, what they should pack etc.

It is very important to give special care and warmth to your guests in a destination wedding. Your guests are travelling a long distance to be present on your big day and so they deserve some special care. Here are some of the ways through which you can make your guests feel special:

  • You can keep a welcome basket for every guest. It can contain things like a map, a list of attractions, snacks, spa vouchers etc.
  • Schedule some fun activities if the place you chose for your wedding is great for kayaking or hiking.

There are plenty of destinations where you can have your big day. Make sure the planning is right and you will be able to enjoy a lot.
