Preparing fall wedding decorations is definitely a hard thing to do whenever you forget about the splendor and feeling of autumn. All of the seasons, by nature, are wonderful and charming in their own unique way. Winter is sometimes associated with death, but it still has life with plenty of white, blue and other cool colors covering its spectrum. Spring is often thought of as the season of rebirth and restoration; differing hues of green are included in its palette. Summer is when everything is in full bloom and life is at it’s busiest, this leads to a wide variety of bright colors being associated with it. Fall is more of a transitional month, of an end and a beginning – marriage is much the same way. Warm colors such as oranges and reds, and other vibrant colors remaining from summer are all part of the picture.
Fall’s motifs, may be commonplace when you look at daily life, but are not normally the topics of our conversations. Therefore, even competent wedding planners (professional or amateur) can easily make mistakes while planning an autumnal wedding. Don’t be concerned, what follows are some quick thoughts to help get the creative juices flowing and make it easier to plan a lovely day for the happy couple.
Fall wedding decorations typically feature leaves that have fallen from the trees. Designers may wish to hand strew orange and red leaves up an down the length of the aisle – as if it were a natural red carpet. Be sure to get permission before using real leaves indoors. Lots of decoration and wedding supply stores offer artificial leaves in season. However, you don’t have to limit yourself to leaves. Other plants can also be used, especially those associated with the harvest, such as wheat, ferns and late-season fruit. You can also have an outdoor wedding in or near a wooded area to take advantage of the beauty provided by Mother Nature.
Pumpkins add a wonderful fall ambience, not only because they are related to the harvest, but also because of their fall-like color. Miniature pumpkins can be used in many ways and make for a nice accent or can be used in a more utilitarian way, such as placeholders for seating cards. (Gourds can also be used in much the same way as pumpkins) Easy to make and attractive table centerpieces can be made from any of the materials mentioned earlier and votive candles, making sure any of the materials are non-flammable.
Most of the design process with fall wedding decorations revolves around the colors of fall. This can be further extended to the foods on the menu, the cake, dresses, invitations, and anything else to do with the special day.
A wedding ought to be among the more notable celebrations in someone’s life. It will be that much easier to have a happy day if everything is just right, and for an autumn ceremony, that includes fall wedding decorations. The difference between humdrum decorating and beautiful decorating can be the difference between flawed memories and happy memories.
