It”s that time of year again, fall is in the air. The days, and certainly the nights, are cooler, and sweaters and boots, hot chocolate and peppermint schnapps replace tank tops and flip flops, sweet tea and Mai-tais. So what does that mean for your wedding? Let”s look at a few ways to invite the season into your I do”s.
Flower Girl Pumpkin Baskets.
Instead of traditional flower baskets, give your flower girl a small, carved out pumpkin with a handle to carry her flowers in.
Few things say fall more than a great pair of boots. Cowboy boots make for fun wedding footwear, and bridal boots make cool wedding pictures!
Shawls for the Bridesmaids.
Outdoor weddings are beautiful this time of year, but can also be a bit chilly. You and your bridesmaids may need a bit of extra warmth, and a shawl is the perfect fall wrap.
It”s time to leave the ice cream bar behind, so instead, design a cookie bar. Sugar, peanut butter, candy, chocolate, white chocolate, Oreos, and peppermint cookies will give your reception the flavor of fall.
Caramel Apple Favors.
To send your guests home with the taste of the season, give caramel apples as your wedding favors. Sprinkle with toasted nuts and wrap in cellophane, tied with a festive bow.
Lantern, pumpkin, or gourd centerpieces, rustic orange and red bouquets, leaves strewn about the floor, there are many ways to use pieces of fall to complement your reception.
