Fall is a romantic time of year to say “I do.” A fall-themed wedding celebrates the beauty of the autumn season as well as a couple’s combined taste and sense of style. The season is rich in vibrant colors, lovely textures, and natural fibers you can easily incorporate into your wedding day décor.
“Fall is one of the most popular times to get married,” says Rosemary Hattenbach, owner and creative director of the event-planning studio Rosemary Events.
While the San Francisco-based wedding planner typically creates events that are inspired by the geographical area of the wedding, she’s planned and executed countless fall weddings during the cooler months of autumn.
“We’d go for big impact with dramatic foliage appropriate to the region, or we might source produce from the farm that highlights the tastes and bounty of the harvest,” she says.
Think gorgeous farm fresh apples, persimmons or varying shapes and sizes of colorful squash.
Whether fall is used as a backdrop for your wedding day or the season’s colors and textures are woven into the decorations, your invitations are your opportunity to express your unique vision for your big day.
