All too often, the moment the clock strikes midnight on October 31st, Halloween is over, and Christmas music and decorations and plans begin – without even stopping over to pay Thanksgiving a visit. But a Thanksgiving inspired wedding is among the most beautiful – and appropriate. You are, after all, marrying your best friend, your partner, your beloved. What more could you be thankful for?
If you will be saying your I do this Thanksgiving season or next, here are four simple, sweet, and spectacular ideas to help you honor the holiday and give thanks on your wedding day.
Love Nest Boutonniere
Groom and groomsmen will look dashing with this take on the boutonniere, available from Etsy for $16.
Pumpkin Ring Bearer “Pillow”
Precious and perfect, miniature pumpkins make a stunning “pillow” for your wedding rings. Either tie the rings on with ribbon, or place them around the stem of the pumpkin for secure carrying. You can purchase mini pumpkins at your local supermarket.
Leaves for Throwing
If fresh fall leaves are not available for your wedding, purchase imitation leaves from your local craft store. Another wonderful idea is to have your flower girl throw fall leaves instead of rose petals for you to walk on down the aisle.
Bring the Outdoors Inside
Consider a tree stump cake stand (available on Etsy or from your backyard), spread acorns about the cake and guest tables, and place leaves around the ceremony and reception areas.
