Magical weddings in the fall season
Fall season weddings are so magical. This is one of the most special time of the year. That is why many couples decide to say ‘I DO’ during this time.
Vibrant colors, breathtaking sunset. Autumn’s incredible colors turn your wedding into a fairytale setting.
There are several reasons and you will benefit from an infinity of advantages if you choose this season for your wedding date.
1. Colores, incredible wedding photos!
Thanks to the gorgeous colors like yellow, burgundy, red, green, ochre….in the fall season you will get some photos that are completely impossible to get in the months of greater sun exposure.
The photographs of your wedding will immortalize such an important moment in your life, and the autumn light is perfect, as it is softer than the summer light, as well as presenting a warm and golden atmosphere. The fall of the leaves and the sunset are two indispensable components. Autumn leaves will also create a beautiful backdrop for your wedding photographs and why not go one step further and use them as a natural alternative to confetti for that extra special touch.
Like carnations and sunflowers are now in season and will add vibrancy to your fall wedding décor.
You can take advantage of the warm colors of this season to match the decoration of your wedding. It will be essential to use complements of autumn origin, giving great importance to nature. Among them, the petals of flowers, branches of trees, trunks, barks, or wild fruits. The tables can be decorated with velvet as it has an ideal texture to contribute to the softness of colors and the autumn atmosphere. If not velvet, you can use any other fabric that serves as a contrast with the wood and leaves.
One of the main attractions that fall weddings offer is the natural landscapes that look great with an attractive and rich color that will allow you to enjoy and combine with different color ranges.
For that special setting, you can choose a forest, a meadow, a park, and even a beach.
What can you use for decoration?
You should include some lamps, candles, flowers, or decorative elements that look older. Regarding furniture and if you love the kind of boho, rule-breaking style of wedding, you can opt for the aged furniture or chairs of different colors and styles. This season combines with vintage and rustic elements, perfect for couples looking for original touches and wanting a wedding full of unique details, beyond the trends.
The lights or candles used must have a tone that combines perfectly with nature and spaces.
If you are a lover of recycling, you must get married at this time, the options to decorate are endless! Either indoors or garden, you can adapt the same decoration, everything you find at home serves, jars, pieces of wood, wicks, slats, you just have to let your imagination fly 😊

4. Your wedding bouquet.
One of the most iconic aspects of autumn is the gorgeous colors, so why not take this advantage and also the elaboration of bouquets with seasonal flowers that gives you a unique wedding bouquet?
Dahlias are one of the most beautiful flowers of this time because of their beautiful color, variety of textures, their resistance, and flowering. The other one as I mentioned before is the sunflower. I love this flower because its vibrant color makes the wedding bouquet gorgeous!
The other option can be a Boquet of wildflowers which are bet on comfort without compromising on elegance.
If you like you can also opt for a bouquet of dried flowers, leaves, rods, tree trunks, or mix dried flowers with fresh, locally grown, seasonal flowers. It gives your bouquet a special touch.
There are also those who celebrate the opening of new and more original dishes for the menu by being able to bet on more hot elaborate dishes, spoons, and creams, or more forceful ingredients that are ignored in summer for obvious reasons. The menu of the season for an autumn wedding is starred by vegetables, hot creams, dried fruits, hot chocolate.
Have you tried the pumpkin cocktail? Then, this is the perfect time for it! What about the spicy pumpkin cream soup? Sounds lovely, right?
These and more delicious dishes that this season offers to you. The best part of it is that these ingredients are all seasonal and local, so you will reduce your carbon footprint with them. Remember the more local and seasonal (the ingredients of your menu or the flowers you use for decoration and your bouquet) the smaller the carbon footprint from long-distance shipping.
For your wedding cake
For your wedding cake, opt for a vegan cake that is more sustainable and has much less of an environmental impact than traditional ones. If the vegan option is not your cup of tea then you can use seasonal fruits like berries. Avoid plastic accessories, like the tiny figurines on the top. I know they are very cute, but in 99% they end up in the trash. Use these fruits for decoration and have a 100% edible cake! The results will be a colorful, super delicious, and Eco-friendly wedding cake 😊
Thanks to the lower temperatures, you can choose between long-sleeved dresses, French dresses, or even a lace-bodied dress.
Makeup and styling also last longer, so touch-ups won’t be a concern.
Autumn bride bet on comfort without compromising on elegance.
Break the rule and go for colors ¡ Due to the fall of rusty oranges in autumn, an orange dress will be the perfect match for the occasion. If you don’t insist on the traditional white wedding dress, then choose this season to get married is the perfect time to break the rules 😊
If it is not for you, you can still get in on the action by using hints of color in your dress; it could either be a sash, rosettes, or embroidery in other colors.
Why not add a colored or jeweled belt to an unembellished wedding gown ? You can also consider Integrating nature elements such as dried leaves or flowers in
your dress, bouquet, or decoration is also a great way to stand out from the ordinary and enliven your big day with a touch of nature.
As you see you have plenty of options when choosing your dream wedding gown.
7.Easier to find your venue and more possible that your guests will attend your big day
Celebrating the wedding in autumn, it is fortunate that the guests are more available since the summer holidays have been over for several weeks.
When you are planning your wedding venue must be among the first things you will tick off your list and even if you start looking in time, it is no guarantee that your dream venue will be available at the time you plan your wedding. In Autumn you have a bigger chance to book your desired location.
Not only this, choosing a date from the calendar from the end of September can mean a reduction of up to 40% of what would cost us to do in the middle of July.
So it is worth considering it 😉
