It’s no wonder fall weddings are so popular: changing leaves create amazing photo ops and, with the summer heat long gone, no one will be sweating through their attire. But the season has its own wedding-planning obstacles. That might be the reason why there are no many couples who choose this season for having their wedding abroad.
Here are some tips on solving typical fall wedding problems:
AN OUTDOOR CEREMONY COMPLETE WITH NATURAL FOLIAGE BACKDROP SOUNDS PERFECT – UNTIL YOU FEEL COLD BREEZE ON YOUR BACK
An outdoor fall wedding is definitely doable, as long as you and your guests are awarded and prepared for the occasion. Make sure you inform your guests about the weather forecast – use your wedding website to give them a friendly reminder that the evening might turn chilly. Consider other ways to keep everyone cozy: display a basket of inexpensive wraps, set up heat lamps and, if the venue site permits, set aside space for a fire pit. Keep in mind you`ll need to have an indoor area as a backup plan in case weather gets worse.
YOU’VE ALWAYS LOVED PEONIES, BUT THEY’RE OUT OF SEASON
In general, one way to keep wedding on the budget is to use seasonal flowers. You`ve got tons of options for elegant fall floral arrangements. Dahlias, camellias, chrysanthemums and asters are all at their peak. Also consider a few non-floral elements to create a centerpiece that really plays up the season. Incorporating fall fruits and vegetables like crabapples, pomegranate, pumpkin, pinecone and leaves can create an arrangement that’s equally elegant and eye-catching. And if it’s peony or bust, there’s still hope of carrying them down the aisle – we can provide greenhouse-grown flowers but prices might be sky-high.
BETWEEN BACK-TO-SCHOOL AND NATIONAL HOLIDAYS THAT OCCUR DURING FALL, CONVENIENT WEEKENDS GET FEWER
No matter how early you send out save-the-dates, the unfortunate fact of picking a wedding date is that someone will likely have conflict. That said, a little research can go a long way toward making sure most of your guests are able to attend. Check online which are the dates to be avoided to find a weekend that’s more likely to work for everyone. And if you hear any grumbling from an invitee about your wedding date, remind them that travel and accommodation expenses are usually lower in the fall, since it’s not peak vacation season. In south Croatia you can still get summer temperatures during October.
Despite all that, fall is one of the most popular wedding seasons and it’s no wonder why. With its mild and comfortable temperatures and beautiful foliage in rich and vibrant colors it gives you a perfect natural backdrop for your dreamy wedding. In its natural beauty, fall gives you a perfect palette to guide you towards your wedding theme.
There are so many hot color trends for autumn weddings! You can choose between shades of copper, apricot, amber, gold and caramel – orange color has a lot of fascinating tones. If you`re a bold bride incorporate mustard yellows, flame reds, deep purples and chocolate browns. Beautiful fallen leaves and berries can be nicely incorporated into the wedding and it’s also a great time to use wood! Possibilities are endless.
