Most people think that wedding season is in the Spring, but there has been a trend over the past several years that have shown us something quite different. Ask any wedding professional (especially in the South!) what their busiest time of year is and you’ll most likely hear fall. Fall is beautiful in the South! Not only is there less rainfall, but the humidity dies down and the leaves start to change. We think there’s just something magical about this time of year! If you’re newly-engaged and trying to pick the perfect season for you, let us tell you exactly why we love fall weddings!
Temperate weather – As the season changes, the temperature cools, and warm tones cover the earth with the trees turning beautiful shades of red, orange, and yellow. Not only is it cooler in the fall months, there’s also a lower chance of rainfall on your wedding day! Cooler and drier? Sign us up!
Fall color palette – A fall wedding gives you the freedom to choose a color scheme that best fits the season. Brides can incorporate warm, deep colors into their bridesmaids dresses, centerpieces and reception decor. This is one of our favorite color palettes because it feels so cozy and inviting!
Fun fall reception decor –A wedding in the fall gives you a great excuse to use cute fall decor for your reception! Incorporating white pumpkins, fall leaves, wooden pallets, pine cones, cozy seating arrangements and lots of dark greenery allow you to embrace the season that you’re tying the knot in!
Not a popular travel season – During the summer months, kids are out of school and families are busy planning vacations galore. In the fall, most people has eased back into a rhythm in their work and school schedule. This means that you can probably count on a higher attendance rate from your guests!
Unique fall reception ideas – The ideas for keeping the reception cozy are limitless! You can set up a hot chocolate or apple cider bar, or even incorporate a fire pit for guests to enjoy yummy s’mores! These fall reception ideas are sure to make your day memorable.
