In the age of DIY, everyone’s incorporating adorable details into their life moments, from weddings to baby showers to dinner parties and more. If you’re having a fall wedding and looking for some finishing touches that can add some warmth and color to your big day, here are some ideas we love.
When it comes to your décor, make sure you have tons of candles or lanterns for a nighttime ceremony or reception, and make it meaningful by having your guests launch paper lanterns into the sky as you say, “I do.” Not only will it make for a gorgeous photo opportunity, but it will also keep your loved ones involved in your wedding night in a memorable way. In lieu of traditional place cards, prop your guest’s seat assignment into pinecones, or print them on colored leaf-shaped paper to add a cute, kitschy detail to your table setting table. Even better? Incorporate your guest’s wedding favor into their seat assignment by printing custom labels for mead bottles, succulent planters, or votive holders. Serve hot apple cider for your signature drink to keep everyone warm, and place blankets and shawls over chairs for people to use if the weather starts to get chilly.
As far as finishing touches for your wedding gown and wedding party, the devil is truly in the details. If you are going for a uniform look, make sure that your bridal party has matching jewelry and shoes, and your groomsmen have matching ties. There’s definitely leeway to incorporate warm jewel tones from nature here as well, by having your groomsmen wear gold cufflinks (also a great gift!) and your bridesmaids wear flowers in their hair (baby’s breath is always stunning) and carrying a bouquet full of autumn blooms. You can incorporate a fall-themed wedding into your own ensemble by wearing jewelry that has jewels, like this gemstone double pearl bracelet, which can be customized with a sapphire or emerald to match your color scheme.
When you’re preparing to say “I do,” the most important thing is that you know you are saying it to the right person – and once that’s in place, the other pieces will fall perfectly.
