Brooklyn Brides: Planning a Fall Wedding

Fall is the perfect season to tie the knot. New York’s natural foliage creates the perfect backdrop for amazing photographs. The summer heat has subsided and temperate weather conditions are desirable for all. Still, wedding planning can easily become overwhelming if you don’t have a clear direction in mind.

Luckily, it’s simple to get creative when it comes to festive fall weddings. Check out a few ideas to get started below:

  • fall weddingGet creative with a fall bouquet. Every bride needs her flowers, but a fall bride has so many more options than just flowers. Incorporate plants such as willow branches, wheat, and even ornamental vegetables. Not only are these plants unique, but they tend to be less expensive than floral bouquets.
  • Keep your wedding decor nature inspired. Set the tone as soon as guests enter the venue with wheat or corn at the entrance. Decorate with gold and plum colors. Fill the room with pumpkins and cornucopias, even jack-o-lanterns with decorative fall patterns and acorns if you’d really like to set the mood.
  • Embrace the fall season with fire pits. If you are having an early fall wedding, fire pits can provide a cozy setting for guests to meander beyond the dance floor. Offering an outdoor seating area gives guests more options than simply sitting at their table or dancing.
  • Choose a warm hue for bridesmaid dresses. Save the pastels for spring and summer weddings. For fall, consider jewel tones like rich greens, violets, and reds. Velvet shawls and pashmina-style wraps are great for your bridesmaids to keep covered and warm while taking photos outdoors.
  • Treat your guests to seasonal foods. Apple pie, turnovers, butternut squash soup, or pumpkin ravioli are all fall food crowd pleasers. Give your wedding guests a taste of fall with hot apple cider drinks. Serve a spiked version with rum at the bar.
