Preparing For An Autumn Wedding

Hosting your wedding during the fall season is popular as research shows that 14 percent of weddings take place in September and 12 percent during the month of October making these months popular for weddings. It also means that you can use wonderful colours of autumn and theme it according to the seasonal magic. Seasonal elements like colours and textures can be used in a dramatic way or subtly. Find below some pointers to plan out a fall wedding.

Location and setting your date

During autumn, the location of the wedding is likely to affect the date of the wedding, for example if it snows in October you will most likely have to bring forward the wedding date to September if you are to go with a fall inspired or harvest inspired theme. Thus, doing some research on the best time of the month and weather conditions will save you a great deal of trouble and inconvenience later on. Sending out you invitations in Melbourne will also help guests to plan ahead in case there is a need to travel as per weather conditions.

Creating fall-themed invitations

Most couples want unique beach wedding invitations if they decide to have a fall wedding, mainly because this is the best way to enhance your theme. Invitations may include autumn motifs such as colorful trees, falling leaves, orchards or even pumpkins. A quick search online for templates or consulting with a professional wedding invitation business will help you create the invitations that you require.

Color combinations and accessories

If you work with the seasonal colours instead of contrasting them, this will give you an attractive choice of colours to work with beach wedding invitations for the bouquets, dresses, table décor and so on. Colours that match with the fall season are oranges, chocolate browns, burgundy and deep greens. Having the weather in mind is also another important aspect when thinking of accessorizing the venue. For example, bridesmaids could be dressed in short to mid-length dresses in case there will be rain or mud, similarly the brides long dress can be adjusted with a bustle so that you do not have to worry about the dress sticking in to mud on a rainy day. Even the hair will have to be done up and the stylist will have to make sure that it is secure with hairspray and pins in case of strong winds.

When it comes to the makeup, waterproof makeup is the safest option and most brides prefer it to ensure there are no smudges if they cry. However, in this case, they might want to pay a little more extra attention in case of rains so keeping back up makeup with you for quick touch ups is important.
