NJ Wedding Planning Ideas for Autumn
A wedding in the fall can be a beautiful affair. The weather is temperate and mild, and the changing colors are spectacular. Autumn weddings have their own special flair that weddings in other seasons can’t match. Here are some ideas from The Knot and Bridal Guide about how to take advantage of this distinctive time of year when you’re planning a wedding.
For Arrangements, Use Unexpected, In-Season Plants
One of the downfalls of a fall wedding is that many blooms will not be in season that you may want for a bouquet or flower arrangements. However, this is the perfect opportunity to get creative. Lots of plants bloom in the fall that you might not have thought of – fiddle fern, cotton plants, mums, and even twisting branches make unique arrangements that give a rustic, fall feeling.
Choose Colors that Match Nature
Having a wedding in the fall gives you permission to use colors that would be too much in any other season. Deep plums, reds, rust browns, oranges, gold, and even black can be used to great effect for a fall event.
For NJ wedding planning, fall is the perfect time for an outdoor affair. The weather is usually less changeable than in the spring or summer, and the temperatures are pleasant. Not to mention, the changing leaves provide a gorgeous backdrop for a ceremony. If your wedding is outdoors in the fall and the temperatures drop at night, provide guests with blankets, space heaters, or even bonfires in the spirit of a fall fete.
