The Advantages of a Fall Wedding

Why Have a Fall Wedding?

Have you been undecided on what time of the year to get married? Here are a few of the many advantages to having a fall wedding:

1. The fall foliage. The colors of fall offer a lot of room for creativity. Autumn leaves and branches make great decorations and bouquets. They’re also cheaper than flowers! Bright fall foliage also makes for a great backdrop in wedding photos.

2. No humidity to ruin your hair. There’s nothing worse than a bad hair day on your wedding! Having a fall wedding means less humidity in the air, which will allow your hair to stay in place without frizzing up. You also don’t have to worry about your makeup coming out of place.

3. Fall-themed dinner and desserts. The season of fall comes with many staple dinners, foods, and drinks, so why not incorporate them into your big day? Your guests will appreciate apple and pumpkin pie, fall cocktails, and many of your other favorite fall flavors.

4. Pumpkin and apple décor. There are many creative ways to decorate tables and benches for a fall wedding using pumpkins and apples.

Fall Wedding Styles

Having a fall wedding means taking advantage of fall dress styles, of course! Here are a few ways you and your guests can dress to highlight the fall season at your wedding:

Fall wedding hairstyles. Ponytails don’t have to be exclusive for summer weddings! Consider a pulled-back braid held in place by a barrette of your choice to create a more appropriate fall-look. A braided bun adorned with autumn flowers is another great choice for a simple but gorgeous fall appearance. Just about any hairstyle can be transformed for fall with the addition of autumn-themed floral crowns.

Fall wedding attire. Because fall weather is typically on the chillier side, you as the bride get the option of wearing a sleeved dress or a cozy sweater of your choice on top! You may also consider wearing chic boots beneath your wedding dress to add another hint of autumn. Deep purples, reds, and other toned-down colors are a good choice for guests to wear to a fall wedding. Metallic and sequin bridesmaid dresses, which are currently trending, are also a stylish option.

Fall Wedding Locations

When selecting a location for your fall wedding, you will want to consider what you want out of your big day.
