Tips for Planning a Fall Outdoor Wedding

With Fall just around the corner and the temperature dropping, many brides to be that are getting married this fall are finishing the last minute details of their ceremony and reception. The tricky part about outdoor weddings, especially in the Fall, is the un-predictableness of the weather. New England has seen snow as early as Halloween and 80-degree days in December. Being prepared is the key to planning a successful fall outdoor wedding.

Be prepared for any weather

With Fall weather being so unpredictable, it’s best to be over-prepared for any weather versus under-prepared. Tents, tent sidewalls, and tent heaters are a good place to start. Tents offer protection not only from rain and snow, but also from leaves, debris, and birds coming close your guests and their food.

Embrace the jewel tones

Jewel tones go hand in hand with Fall and incorporating them into your wedding is easier than you think. Consider going with burgundy, peacock blue, or deep orange tones for bridesmaid dresses, bouquets, and table linens.

Have a comfortable environment for your guests

Fall is known for its warm days and cool nights. Consider having a day-time affair or be extra prepared for the cooler evening with tent heaters, blankets, shawls, and delicious drinks for our guests to warm them up. If your guests aren’t comfortable, they won’t be committed to celebrating the wonderful couple.

Feast on Fall-inspired food

Everyone loves warm, comfort food and that’s exactly what Fall is all about. Consider having a Thanksgiving-themed rehearsal dinner, pumpkin flavored treats at the reception, and mini pies for desert. Mini versions of food are very popular so no matter what you decide to serve, your guests will love it!
