There’s no mistaking when you walk outside that it is summertime. High humidity and thunderstorms are just part of the season, and if you are not a fan of summer, you maybe be considering a fall wedding.

If you’re planning your wedding and want to shoot for fall, you better not wait too long to book your venue. Did you know October racks up a whopping 14% of weddings that occur throughout the entire year, which is only second to June.

So what’s so great about autumn, you ask? There are a lot of things!

 Erica and Kevin incorporated several fall items but this was my favorite – the wood “stump” is actually a cake! Everyone thought it was real wood! And the groom made the cupcake stand! Photo by A Reflection By Sherry.

Decorations are Affordable

Unless you’re a flower guru and need them everywhere, you can design your wedding with minimalistic floral purchases in the autumn season without sacrificing on style.

Pumpkins, mums, and romantic candles (just make sure your venue allows them), will create the perfect ambiance for your guests, and these items won’t break the bank. Create table numbers with pumpkins for a unique way to tie in the fall feel.

Drink Up!: Espresso Bar

One way to make sure your guests are boogying down on the dance floor all night long is to caffeinate them. Who doesn’t love a piping hot latte when it’s chilly? If you’re in the Central PA area, be sure to check out Prince Street Café and their mobile espresso bar!

You Won’t Sweat It

If you’re thinking of having an outdoor wedding, spring and fall are the prime times to have your ceremony and reception. With lower to non-existent humidity and chilly nights, guests can be dressed in full suits and long dresses without baking. Just be sure to inform your guests the wedding will be outside, and ask your venue if they include heaters in case it gets cold!

Accessories

Are you dying to add a shawl or fur wrap into your ensemble? Fall is the perfect time to do so. It’s functional and won’t look out of place, but it will make your wedding photos pop with some extra fun and flare. There are numerous fall wedding dress ideas out there on the Internet, so don’t be shy! Find your ideal style today!
