The great thing about fall is that you don’t really have to worry about weather conditions. No sweltering heat that will require you to put up an expensive air-conditioned tent. And no chances of rain, hail, or snow. The most chaos you can expect is a cool breeze.
This means you can go all out when it comes to finding the perfect wedding location. Obviously, it has to be outdoors. Whether you’re getting married on a church lawn or in your local botanical gardens, the open sky and fresh grass will make everything that much more magical.
Find a place that’s big and open. Some trees are fine but too many might lead to a lot of fallen leaves and a lot of mess to clean. Also, find a spot where the sun hits perfectly for some time during the day before setting. Finally, make sure the location is easily accessible for all of your guests.


2. Send out fall-themed wedding invites

Get creative with your invites and emphasize the fall theme. Here are some fall colors that you should definitely add to your design:

  • Orange, Brown, Deep yellow, Beige

Of course, you don’t have to include all colors. The perfect combination would be two colors – a dark and a light. Keep your invites pretty and minimalist, and decorate them with cute leaf borders.
Best of all, you don’t need to hire an expensive graphic designer to do all of this. Sites like PosterMyWall have a ton of gorgeous wedding invitations that you can choose from and customize to create your own amazing invite.


3. Create a seasonal wedding menu

This is the perfect opportunity for you to arrange some delicious seasonal food for your guests. Whether you’re making pumpkin spice drinks or candy apple pies, make sure your wedding menu accentuates the fall season.
The food is also one way to be creative with your wedding. Don’t be afraid to try out some new recipes and introduce your guests to some fun and delicious seasonal foods.


4. Advise people to bring some layers

While fall is a beautiful time to host your wedding, it may get chilly especially towards the evening. You don’t want your party guests to be uncomfortable, so remind everyone beforehand to bring a sweater or a shawl in case the wind picks up.
As the host of the wedding, it’s important that you’re dressed appropriately for the weather as well. Keep a sweater that goes with your look, and wear it in case the evening gets colder.


5. Go for a rustic theme for your wedding

Since brown and beige is the way to go for a fall event, set a theme for your wedding that compliments these colors. A rustic theme can be absolutely beautiful. And it’s an excuse to bring out the antique furniture lying around your house.
Wooden tables and chairs don’t only look beautiful, they can also be easier on the pocket. You can pair the brown colors in the furniture with some off-white flowers adorning the entrance and the dinner tables.


6. Use the foliage for your wedding shoot

Instead of shelling out thousands on a backdrop for your wedding pictures, simply take advantage of the beautiful fall colors and fallen leaves. Find a spot close to your venue that has a bundle of trees and fallen leaves. Then snap some photos with your friends and family, and with each other. If you’re hiring a photographer, give them instructions to use the leaves and trees to compliment your picture.
