With our cooler weather this weekend and pumpkin spiced everything hitting the shelves, I can’t help but suddenly be enthralled with everything fall. This obviously includes the great opportunities that come with fall weddings. From color pallets and flowers, to the décor and attire, this time of year is ideal for the bride who loves rich colors and rustic charm. Here at Cricket Hill, we have put together a couple of our favorite fall ideas for your big day.

The Color Scheme

This time of year is perfect for incorporating warm, rich colors into your bridal party attire and flower choices (think plums, oranges, and deep reds). Try making a statement by adding a bold sash or shoes to your dress that coordinates with rich calla lilies or roses in your bouquet. These fine touches are subtle and elegant.

Décor

From centerpieces to place cards, incorporating the season’s best assets into your décor is sure to give guests a unique experience. You can subtly put gourds near entrances or use small pumpkins as part of your table decorations. They create a festive design that is sure to make your guests feel at home with each other.

The Food

Who doesn’t love all of the spice that comes with fall flavors? Pumpkin desserts and apple ciders are great choices for a reception inspired by this time of year. S’mores are also a great cool weather idea for favors and treats. Talk with your caterer and see if there is any way you can incorporate some of the season’s best flavors into your menu.
