The autumn has so much to offer when it comes to hosting a wedding. From the vibrant, picturesque backdrop to the fresh flowers and harvests you can take advantage of to the perfect crisp temperatures that won’t make you melt – here are some of the top benefits of hosting a fall wedding.
Fresh, Crisp Weather
The fall season gives you the perfect cool weather to enjoy during your big day. Without the stifling heat and humidity, it means you won’t have to worry about sweating your makeup off or feeling uncomfortable in your dress. And if it gets a bit too chilly, it’s much easier to plan for with a few blankets or wraps to offer guests.
With the rich hues of orange, red, green, and yellow, this season creates an ideal backdrop for your wedding, no matter where you plan on hosting it. When it comes to your photo-ops, you can take them almost anywhere and get stunning results – apple orchards, a pumpkin patch or a quaint rustic farm – they’re all popular settings for photos during this time of the year.
Beautiful Seasonal Flowers
Just like the scenery, you also have many options when it comes to seasonal fall flowers. Choose from vivid colourful mums, carnations, sunflowers, marigolds or garden roses combined with wheat and berries for the perfect cozy and modern arrangements.
Food and Flowers at Peak Supply
Fall is harvest season, so many fruits, veggies and flowers are at the peak of supply which means they’re fresh and generally cost less. Seasonal fruit pies, mulled apple cider, pumpkin spice – there are so many fun and creative ways to embrace the autumn. This also makes it easier to find items that are local so you can support your homegrown community and also reduce your carbon footprint.
Pumpkins are one of the biggest trends whenever the fall season rolls around. There’s just something about this big orange fruit that we can’t get enough of. If you’re a big fan of pumpkins, you can incorporate them into your wedding day in so many creative ways. Use them as décor throughout the venue, place them as centrepieces on tabletops or add them into your catered menu. Take advantage of the fall to embrace everything pumpkin for your wedding.
