With sunshine and blue skies, summer is a popular time for a wedding. But imagine having your wedding in the fall. With everything turning from bright greens to warm, romantic tones and the air becoming crisp and fresh, fall provides you with the perfect setting to say ‘I do’. Convinced yet? No? Well, before you completely disregard this amazing season, here are a couple of reasons why you should get married in fall.
Everything For Your Dream Wedding Is Available
Yes, summer weddings are great, but it is also the peak of wedding season. During this time florists, bands, catering companies, and every other wedding service provider is booked to capacity. You’ll be fighting (not physically, maybe verbally) to get the venue you want on the date you want. And maybe even be in tears because the photographer or makeup artist has been booked by someone else on your wedding day. Fall allows for more availability and flexibility for both you as the bride and groom, and for vendors. You’ll be able to book your first choice of suppliers for everything – which means you’ll get the wedding of your dreams.
If You’re Looking For A Good Deal, You’ll Get One In Fall
To encourage brides and grooms to get married over the low season, many service providers have discounted rates in fall. You definitely pay a bit more for a Saturday wedding in summer than for a fall wedding. Whether it is a venue or a car rental company, use your haggling skills if you decide to get married in fall because vendors are usually more flexible over this time.
The Natural Colors Make For A Beautiful Outdoor Wedding
If you like the idea of an outdoor wedding, fall is the perfect season to do so. With the leaves falling from the trees to creating a blanket of brown, yellow, orange and red tones and beautiful naked trees, Mother Nature will give you the perfect wedding backdrop for your wedding. Additionally, the weather won’t have guests melting (and smelling like sweat) like in summer or freezing. If there is a bit of a nip in the air, supply guests with cozy blankets.
Choose Everything Pumpkin With Seasonal Food
Somethings just tastes like fall – think everything pumpkin, apple cider, and donuts! Why not continue the fall theme by serving seasonal food. We love the idea of serving pumpkin or sweet potato-apple soups for an appetizer, pork with squash and apples or beef and butternut squash stew for entree and baked apples with ice cream or pear upside-down cake for dessert. Guest will love tucking into food that gives them that warm and fuzzy feeling that fall does too.
Get Creative With Fall Decor
Wedding decor can turn any venue from drab to fab with fall, DIY decor. If your budget is tight, fall provides you with everything you need for decor, at no additional cost. All you need to do is step outside and look down. From crunch leaves and naked branches, you can create beautiful centerpieces which can be accented with candles. It’s that easy. Alternatively, you can bring the outdoors in by fall decor like wreaths, tablecloths, and garlands.
