21 Sep Planning a Fall Wedding!
So you’re planning a fall wedding. Lucky You!
Seriously, everyone at one point in their life has their mind set on a fall wedding.
Not all Fall Weddings are the same, so check out some of our favorite themes and ideas!
DECORATIONS: Pumpkins, gourds, mums, wheat stalks, apples, blankets, overalls! Use these for your table accents and centerpieces.
Did you know that you can use artichoke in floral arrangements?
Oooo, what about a flannel table linen!
*Not into all the colors? Paint your pumpkins white & gold- you get the theme without losing the chic!
FOOD & BEVERAGE: Root vegetables, like parsnips & rutabagas for your vegetables;
add pumpkin spice to your coffee;
have a chai tea station;
pumpkin seeds for salty bar snacks;
host a keg of hard cider for a real treat!
DECORATIONS: Well, there really are so many things to consider! We have seen some awesome Halloween weddings here, from Phantom of the Opera to 1920’s Murder Mystery, the options are endless!
FOOD & BEVERAGE: Did you know you can rename your signature drink? You could host Black Water Lounge’s “June in January” (above) and call it “Witches Brew”. Easy!
*Theme within a theme…. Don’t forget that you can go October Fest for Halloween, and this is a great time to get your guests to dress the part! Think kielbasa & cheese skewers and a pretzel bar with beer cheese dip- yum!
DECORATIONS: Use rounds of wood for your centerpiece base, go foraging for pinecones, wheat stalks, cattails, and fall berries.
In case you’re wondering, tying a cute flannel over your dress is a real thing.
And if you were wondering which theme you can use leaves with, the answer is all of them- but this one specifically!
Make sure you get a picture with all those cute boots!
FOOD & BEVERAGE: Do a roasted mushroom appetizer during social hour;
Have a build-your-own hot apple cider bar;
And don’t forget about maple- Give away maple syrup favors, throw maple-bacon into your roasted brussel sprouts, and while you’re at it, have a maple-flavored dessert.
Send your guests home with favors to make a campfire s’more.
BACK TO SCHOOL THEME.
DECORATIONS: Apples everywhere;
Old books for centerpieces;
Chalk boards for table numbers;
What about putting bells on the tables for your guests to ring to get you two to kiss?!
FOOD & BEVERAGE: How about a picnic lunch feel with your favorite vintage lunch boxes?
Wrapped sandwiches and juice pouches- so fun!
