Autumn is here and what a perfect time of the year to plan your wedding. Warm rich earthy colors are everywhere it's as if Mother Nature was creating a backdrop just for you.
Think of a color palette that includes Fall hue's, gold, burgundy, copper, plum and tangerine are all perfect contenders.
Of course, good old Mother Nature can play tricks of her own in the fall bringing in a cold snap just when you didn't want it. If you are having an outdoor ceremony make sure your guest aren't left shivering in the aisles by having baskets filled with throws or warm air blowers available where guests might naturally gather. Of course, you could really make statement feature and set up a campfire area, a perfect excuse for a s’mores table.
Thinking outside the box when it comes to your floral arrangements can really set your autumnal wedding apart. Using fruit and vegetables that are in season will not only save you a small fortune they can really be a feature on the day. Think of using one large pumpkin as a centerpiece holding a flower arrangement or a group of different size and color gourds and pumpkins for your centerpiece. Line the aisle with fallen leaves or various size pumpkins and maybe carve them with cute messages like "Best day Ever" or "Mr & Mrs" as the evening darkens you'll have fabulous lantern ready to light.
The wedding cake mmmm! Summer has passed and with it the lighter cake flavors like vanilla and white cake. Try carrot cake or spiced apple with a luxurious cream cheese filling. Decorate with flowers to match your theme or marzipan mini pumpkins and chocolate leaves. But don't go overboard with your choice of colors and decorations it's your wedding, not Halloween.
Finish off your cake with a luxurious gold cake topper in keeping with those warm autumnal colors.
Most of all smile, have fun and Keep Calm your perfect wedding is about to happen.
