As summer comes to a close, we realize that fall is just around the corner. And if you’re planning a wedding, you need to get your head out of the summer and into the details of your long awaited celebration. This can be the hardest time to plan because we’ve all been on a mental (or physical) vacation, enjoying the sun and the time off. And getting into a planning flow can be a challenge. So we want to share some simple tips to help you get the momentum going again so you aren’t stuck planning details at the last moment.
We Ontario Bakery, want you to have the best wedding possible so here are some fall wedding planning tips to get you back into the excited celebration mood.
Every wedding is made even more beautiful by accenting the design with pieces inspired by the season you’re in. In this case, with fall, we’ve got falling leaves, drying branches, pumpkins, apples, spices…
Some ideas to involve these elements are to have your guest sign in list surrounded by leaves and bark paper or to arrange tea lights on little branch cuts on tables. You can also add a touch of the seasonal harvest here and there, but instead of leaving them at their farm fresh colors, paint them gold and wrap them in a color ribbon you’re using in the wedding party’s attire.
Have you determined your focus and accent colors for the wedding?
You want to make sure you mix bold Autumn colors with a contrast of natural textures to accent.
When choosing colors, be sure to choose warm and dark. Use rich chocolate browns, burgundy and burnt orange, with decor accents of burlap, velvet, and natural elements such as wood slices and blocks.
If you have the option to have the ceremony at sunset with the reception under the stars or basking in the moonlight, then please do it.
Add accents of gold or even copper to your eyes. Have fun with a nude lip or go rich with a smooth bordeaux color. Hair done up and out of the face will keep those colors rich without overwhelming the picture and still accenting your dress.
Food is especially fun to play with at a fall wedding. Use spices like clove, cardamom and cinnamon. As an added touch to bring more warmth during the eating time, you can brighten up the ambience with golden stringed lights around the reception area.
Preparing for a fall wedding is more than a fun affair; it gets you connected to the time of year in a very special and unique way.
