Spring might be considered the traditional wedding season, but autumn has so much to offer. If you are planning to wed this autumn, or next, make sure to highlight the beauty of the season, by including decorations – and even delicacies – that highlight the best the season has to offer. From dessert inspiration to tablescapes, here are some beautiful and delicious ways to make fall, itself, a memorable feature of your wedding day!
Up the Fall Feel with Seasonal Touches and Flavors
One simple yet impactful way to honor the season is by incorporating elements taken straight from nature into your wedding and reception. For instance, pumpkins make great additions to an altar area, and also as part of table centerpieces for the reception. Hollowed out pumpkins can be used as vases, while miniature pumpkins make great escort card holders.
- Tree branches in beautiful vases are another great autumnal element, particularly if you have your florist pick ones with colorful leaves and foliage.
- Using fall colors is another surefire way to set the mood. You can take your cue from nature with rich oranges, reds and brown tones, or choose a variety of jewel tones, which are considered fall favorites. Emerald, plum, navy and burgundy all fit the bill.
- When it comes to signature cocktails, desserts and even dinner, it’s a great idea to incorporate seasonal flavors. And that’s not limited to pumpkin, though we do love a good pumpkin pie or even pumpkin spice-inspired coffee bar! Many squash and gourds, plus sweet potatoes, brussel spouts and beets are in season during autumn. Put these colorful and flavorful ingredients to work as savory side dishes, or main dishes for your vegetarian friends.
- Fruits like pomegranates, cranberries and apples are also freshest in fall. They make great ingredients for desserts and also signature drinks!
