You must hold your Wedding Inside
If you think that you can’t have your dream outdoor wedding and fall date coexist, think again. By incorporating pashmina-style wraps as favors, fire pits, and strategically placed heat lamps you can hold your ceremony, cocktail hour, and maybe even reception outdoors. With the unpredictable fall weather, especially in Wisconsin, it would be smart to have an indoor option for your guests. Finally, suggest to bring jackets or wraps in your invitations or on your personalized website in case it ends up being unseasonably cold on your special day.
You must incorporate Pumpkins into your décor
Pumpkin can be a festive treat to add to your dessert table, but don’t feel the need to incorporate it into your décor. To express the fall season in a pumpkin free way, try incorporating fruits like pears, apples, figs and pomegranates instead. Another popular trend is incorporating leaves, grains, and wood elements that reflect the season in a more subtle way
Create a cohesive, autumn-inspired event by incorporating fall touches throughout your menu and table settings. Add your favorite fall components such as apples, pumpkins or rustic finishes to create a seasonal affair.
Incorporate a signature drink such as apple cider, a local craft brew or a pumpkin spice cocktail to add a subtle hint of fall flair at your bar. Adding drink ingredients, dark wood and florals can add to both the ambience and atmosphere at the bar.
Tablescapes are a great way to incorporate subtle or dramatic touches of fall throughout your reception. If you’re looking to add a few small touches of autumn, consider incorporating jewel tones, touches of gold or candlelight. If autumn is your focus, add dramatic accents with pumpkins or wood.
Top off your wedding with a delectable, seasonal treat. Caramel apples take us back to childhood trips to the apple orchard while a naked cake embodies the rustic, fall atmosphere.
