Fall is often considered the most beautiful and visually appealing season of all. With a rich palette of colours ranging from soft yellow, rusty orange, chestnut brown to crimson red, and the various iconic symbols associated with autumn, it’s easy to see why this is true. Look no further than the Canadian flag as proof of this symbolism. The red maple leaf is a national symbol and a proud part of Canada’s heritage and identity. If you’re looking for some fall wedding decorating ideas and fall themed party favors, you’ve come to the right place. In Casa Gift has a wide variety of decorations and fall wedding favors to make your big day an extra special event. Here are four fantastic decorating ideas and planning tips for your wedding day.
Autumn Wedding Planning – Weather Considerations
As beautiful as fall can be, this season should also be respected due to its sometimes unpredictable weather. The best approach is to plan for the worst and hope for the best. This thought process should go into every decision you make that can be affected by the weather. This includes you and your wedding party’s attire (dresses, accessories, and tuxedo choices), your venue, and even your choice of transportation. Each of these has to be considered for the comfort and happiness of all involved. Outdoor photo shoots can be ruined if the couple and wedding party are shivering uncontrollably and on the verge of hypothermia. Proper attire, shelter, and a few coat-holding helpers can go a long way into making this a great shoot instead of a nightmare-inducing experience. Access to some warm beverages is always welcome and a great pick-me-up when there’s a bit of a chill in the air. It’s not unheard of to see or read about a bridal party making a coffee run to Tim Horton’s between the ceremony and reception to get them through the photo shoot in one piece.
If you’re planning on hosting any portion of your wedding outdoors, these decisions are critical for the comfort of your wedding party and guests. Some of these concerns can be mitigated by having a tent set up for the reception. This tent can be decorated with seasonal flowers, lanterns, balloons, streamers, and wonderful autumn-inspired wedding centerpieces. Colourful leaves and overflowing harvest baskets add colour and variety to this outdoor venue idea.
Fun and Colourful Fall Wedding Decorating Ideas
There are a few themes that you can explore and use to have a lot of fun with colour. Think fall harvest, Thanksgiving, and even Halloween for some great colour and imagery to incorporate into your decorating efforts. Rather than using traditional flower petals as décor, consider using colourful fall leaves to accentuate your displays. Seasonal flowers are also a great way to celebrate fall with a wonderful and colourful arrangement.
When selecting your colour scheme, warm colours are the popular choice for fall. Deeper shades and tones add tremendously to the mood and look fantastic in those wedding photos. Chocolate brown, deep purple, royal blue and wine red are great colour choices here.
Fabulous Ideas for Fall Party Favors
There’s no question that fabulous favors can make a celebration extra memorable. Some great autumn gifts include the “Bronze Elegance” fall leaf bottle stopper, leaf themed glass coaster favors, autumn memorial pillar candles, metal leaf-shaped card holders with autumn bronze finish, and adorable mini acorn candles to name a few.
Complementary Autumn Themes are Perfect Ideas, Too!
Think Rustic! Rustic favors and rustic wedding themed decor are perfectly suited for autumn weddings. Whether it’s the warm, rich color schemes or worn look – they just seem to fit wonderfully for a fall wedding. Think vintage and shabby chic party themes plus Woodland wedding themes that are a perfect fit, too!
Remember Decorative Signage and Stationary when Planning Fall Weddings
You can add elegance and style by completing your décor with autumn-inspired invitations, placeholders, table number signage, wine and water bottle labels, and personalized stickers with stunning results. You’ll impress your guests with this fabulous signage featuring lovely leaf patterns and rustic styled fonts. Parchment style paper adds an earthy feel to this signage and has a wonderful overall look when it’s combined with your favors and centerpieces. You can really make this shine if you’ve got some mad DIY skills and the needed supplies (or know someone who does).
