The fall wedding theme provides a vivid and thoughtful experience for all those attending the wedding ceremony and reception. Fall is a time when deciduous leaves decide to change colour and drop them, providing a rich and colorful backdrop theme in which to celebrate your wedding day.
A little planning and creativity will go a long way in creating your own stunning fall wedding idea comes to fruition. Your fall wedding theme planning will start from deciding what colour palette you will be working with for your wedding attire which will also determine the color for the wedding decorations. As part of the wedding theme thought process you can also tie in the food, the entertainment, favors and the location of your wedding ceremony and reception as part of the fall wedding theme.
The wedding experience all starts from the wedding invitation that the guest receives from the couple being wedded. To welcome them into your wedding theme – think about typesetting the wedding invitation in your fall wedding theme. Invite them to become a part of your fall theme and to attend your wedding in a fall themed dress.
Fall Wedding Theme Color
What do you think first of when images of fall fills your mind? Feelings and past memories that you evoke through this process could be and should be a part of your fall wedding theme. The images of harvest and preparation for the coming winter – the memorable changing color of the leaves along a Maine highway or Washington state – or any other location you’ve got deciduous trees on hand.
Your colour palette for your wedding would work around the color generated by the changing color of leaves as the tree loses its leaves. The wedding theme colour would consist of rich golden to yellows, brilliant reds, browns, burgundy and eggplant. Other colour you may like to consider are other shades of red, oranges, rust pastels, wine, navy and mustard yellows – all the different shades of colour of Fall. There are so many different colors to choose from – the difficult part is in finding the palette you love and limiting your choices.
Fall Wedding Locations
You’ve chosen to hold your wedding during the fall season and have decided to take on the wedding theme to play out the theme of the season. You plan to decorate and to work fall color around your wedding.
Another way to accentuate your theme is to introduce a location that promotes your theme or provides a blank working space with which you can work to decorate around.
Sure you can hold it in a church and decorate your theme color around that but have you considered other options? How about a wedding in the great outdoors where all the smells and color are all there for you and your guests to experience? You could hold it in the back of your home, at an arboretum (a greenhouse), your local gardens/parklands, vineyard, golf course or at a farm.
Decorating your Fall Wedding
So you have the color you want to work around with in your fall theme wedding – the next step is to plan out how you can incorporate this into your theme. Remember to think big – and that even the smallest ideas could have the biggest effect in the impact of the theme. Keeping it simple is also best.
Here are some simple ideas to get you started on your way to planning out how you will decorate your wedding according to your theme. At your ceremony the most simple but effective decoration could be your pew or seat bows which could be made of ribbons in the color you’ve chosen from your themed palette.
Your flower arrangements, in decorations around your wedding ceremony or reception and your bouquet would also reflect the color of your theme. Your wedding dress and the attire of your guests, groomsmen and maids would also reflect the color of fall. You may also consider decorating the wall with grapevine wreaths to celebrate your theme. Candles and candleholders would also be a nice addition. And at the reception at your fall themed wedding you may want to decorate each table with a centerpiece celebrating your theme. With this centerpiece you may want to fill a bowl or glass with a combination of color that screams fall such as dried fruit and nut offerings mixed with herbs and dried leaves or dried bouquets that evoke the feeling of the season.
With a well planned wedding theme your fall wedding will be a memorable event that would remain the talk of the town for some time.
