Focusing on a particular theme can be a great way to organize your pre-wedding day thoughts into one cohesive concept that reflects all of your wedding desires. Creating a single-minded theme will help guide you in your choices to make your selections for the big day almost effortless and filled with fun. From appetizers to the cake, music to luxurious linens, bridal gowns to guest favors ... you can create a WOW event by sticking to your special theme!
A timely example that is always unforgettable? The coveted “Fall Wedding” theme! Colorful fall decor is abundant with changing leaves, brisk breezes have couples fighting for dates at their favorite outdoor venues and, of course, the excitement for that first day of “sweater weather” ...
... oh wait! We live in the Sunshine State where temperatures average in the upper seventies, low eighties in the Autumn months.
So what are the benefits to having a fall wedding here on Florida's West Coast and how you can create a sense of fall even if the weather doesn't quite cool off like you would expect?
Following these simple steps will give your guests all the fall vibes you crave:
1) Venue ideas are something to consider
A barn location or a vintage mansion can work well with a fall theme more than a colorful tiki hut or beach venue. Sun N Fun Resort has multiple ceremony and reception locations, with neutral colors, that can easily lend itself to this time of year.
2) Draw decor inspiration for the season
Dried flowers, curly willow branches, fall leaves sprinkled on the table can add the sense of fall for guests. Use cut tree stumps and natural moss to amp up the “outdoors” feeling. Organically display pumpkins, gourds and squash or go with a dried fruit theme and use red/gold apples, pears and berries.
3) Seasonal Guests Favors
Guests will love fall themed favors like pumpkin scented candles, little bags of garden seeds, custom labeled beer/cider bottles or s’mores kits. Happy pinning!
4) Bring on the "mood" filtered photos
Don’t just think solely on “day of wedding” stuff. Your photography and videography can create a mood that can forever transcend the feeling of fall. Think about hiring a photographer with a dramatic editing touch. Our recommendation? We love a dark wash! It makes sun flares even more extravagant and rich colors will pop off the page.
5) Be creative with Food
Yummy, delicious food is more than traditional comfort foods of fall. Think outside of the box! For example … roasted turkey and cranberry sauce sliders, butternut squash bisque or warm goat cheese dates.
For dessert, nothing is more fun than a "dip your own caramel apple" dessert display. Prepare for an amazingly beautiful presentation! Guests will enjoy a break from traditional wedding sweets and talk about this for years to come.
Whatever you decide, make sure it has a personal touch of your fall favorite activities.
