Fall is the perfect season to embrace natural textures and colors, especially if you’re planning to host your wedding outdoors. Extreme heat and humidity are not an issue, which is something both you and your guests will appreciate. Fall just brings a certain feeling of coziness and comfort that makes a wedding feel even more personal and special. So, what are the main things you should pay attention to when planning your gorgeous fall wedding? Keep on reading to find out.
The stunning décor
Obviously, you don’t have to go for a complete fall theme just because you’re holding your wedding during this season. However, the warmth and coziness of fall make for a perfect addition to the romantic, almost whimsical décor. In general, you can incorporate accessories and details that match the fall colors perfectly. Also, don’t forget about some of the staple fall dishes that can make the menu more interesting and unique. Moreover, you have the possibility to play with candles and lanterns as well as other fall-like elements such as wooden chairs and tables, velvety materials and rustic-inspired details.

Don’t miss the sunset
Don’t forget that the sun sets a bit earlier in the fall. This can easily slip your mind if you’re dealing with wedding prep and organization during warm, summer months. Because of this, you should consider adjusting the time for the guests to arrive as well as your ceremony. After all, you want your photographer to capture the most beautiful moments of your wedding day and they will need the sunlight. What’s more, some of the most stunning wedding photos are taken during the sunset, so don’t miss the opportunity to preserve this moment forever.
Unfortunately, choosing your own wedding gown is not going to be the end of dress problems. Regardless of the season, finding the best design and color for your bridesmaid dresses can be really challenging. The best thing you can do in this case is to have your bridesmaids with you when looking for that perfect cut. However, your fall wedding can make things easier for you in terms of color. Opting for warm, rich hues of fall colors can be a great way to add the fall vibe to your wedding day and create a truly magical atmosphere. Not to mention how gorgeous the photos would look with you in your lovely wedding gown, your bridesmaids in fall-inspired dresses and nature as your perfect backdrop.
Fall-themed wedding favors
When choosing the best wedding favors for your guests, you should definitely think of something that everyone is most likely to enjoy. It can be really difficult to find perfect and useful wedding favors that every guest would be happy with. Therefore, you can utilize the fall season once again and go with edible fall wedding favors. This is something that will look cute, match the natural theme and taste delicious! However, if you like this idea, don’t leave the realization of it for the last minute. You may need to find an extra service to make these delights for you, aside from the one taking care of the wedding menu.

Make your grand exit
For many people, fall weather is absolutely beautiful. However, it’s important to stay realistic because fall weather can also be unpredictable. Apart from paying attention to the weather forecast, you should make sure that your wedding party can take shelter in case of rain. Moreover, rainy periods during the fall time are usually in the evening. If you want to make a grand exit without having the elements ruin your dress and makeup, consider hiring a reputable wedding car service. This stylish practice is truly timeless.
How are the preparations going for your fall wedding? Remember, if you’re going to organize an outdoor wedding, you should definitely opt for early fall. Even then, don’t forget to have something handy to wear and keep you warm without spoiling your wedding look.
