The first step in planning your wedding is deciding whether it is formal or casual, as this can affect the rest of the planning process. These themes should be present on all wedding related items such as wedding dresses, invitations, reception decorations and even the wedding cake. Each season has its own qualities but a fall wedding can provide some extra excitement not provided by the other seasons. This extra excitement is provided by the change in foliage and comfortable weather. An autumn wedding has many benefits over spring, summer and winter with the most important being the weather and scenic view of the foliage.
When somebody thinks of the fall, the first image that comes to mind is usually the changing color of the leaves. This is usually the most common theme when it comes to choosing colors for your wedding. During the fall months, leaves begin changing to red, yellow, orange and brown. When planning a fall wedding, many couples choose these colors because they compliment the landscape well and introduce a natural feel to the event. The color choice is most important because your bridesmaids need to pick out their dress and you may want to start deciding on decorations.
Color choice is the most important decision when it comes to planning a fall wedding.
