Say it With Flowers

Although summer is the season most famed for the variety of its wedding flowers, there are still plenty of incredible options for flowers if you choose to have a rustic-style autumnal wedding. Fiddle fern has a wonderful rustic charm, and looks incredible teamed with rust and orange flowers. Alternatively you can opt for thistles for a natural feel or orange calla lilies if you want something very bright. Incorporate plenty of leaves and greenery to give the effect of bringing the outside in, and let nature be the driving force of your rustic autumnal wedding. It will look so effective, and will have people talking for months afterwards!

Wedding Favor Ideas

The incredible variety of options available for rustic fall wedding favors is almost endless. We love the idea of evergreen favors: write a personalized message to each guest and they can then plant the card and grow a beautiful tree to honor your special day. Alternatively, if you want something a little more colorful, why not try Iris flower bulbs which have a beautiful color and can be presented in either gift boxes or miniature burlap sacks. You can extend this favour into your theme, as burlap could be used to make napkin rings, be incorporated into your table centerpieces, and you could even use burlap table clothes if you want a really rustic-looking occasion. And don’t forget the power of herbs: they make amazing favors as well as adding wonderful fragrance to bouquets and floral displays.

go pumpkin in 2013

Pumpkin Power!

Celebrate the fall season by decorating your reception venue with pumpkins and seasonal flowers: you could even hollow out pumpkins and fill them with flowers to make table centerpieces that will be a real talking point.

Pumpkins are the perfect decorations for rustic fall weddings. Rather than flower baskets, why not have your younger flower girls carry Halloween pumpkins down the aisle at your wedding ceremony: you can fill the pumpkins with traditional petals, or even use Halloween candy if you want something unusual that will really catch your guests by surprise!

Pumpkins will also great color inspiration for the younger members of your wedding party: flower girls and ring bearers will look wonderful accessorized with rich orange ribbons and bow ties. And if that just isn’t enough pumpkin for you, think of all the pumpkin recipes you could incorporate into your wedding food: pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, you could even have a pumpkin flavoured wedding cake if you want to keep your menu choices seasonal!

    . The Kitchen Bridal Shower

    Ask guests to choose gifts the bride will need to establish an the kitchen of her dreams. Gifts might include: tools, utensils, cookware, bake ware, appliances, gadgets, linens and cookbooks. A Kitchen Shower is the perfect occasion to go potluck. If your kitchen can manage, request that a few dishes be brought assembled but uncooked. When your guests arrive, pop their culinary creations into the oven and serve wine in the kitchen while you enjoy the aroma of what is soon to come. Guests might also bring along their signature recipe, written on a card to present to the bride.

    Basic Pesto Sauce
    - 1/3 cut fresh basil leaves
    - 2 cloves garlic, crushed
    -pinch of salt
    - 1/2 cup pine kernels
    - 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
    – 1/2 cup olive oil

    Fall in Love

    Outdoor weddings held during the fall are breathtaking and magical. If your wedding venue has trees that brim with windswept fall foliage, then you are in for an enchantingly romantic affair.

    Here are amazing ideas on how to integrate trees and other elements of autumn into a stunning wedding.

    Morning wedding set in an orchard, a vineyard, or a barn

    Say your vows under the trees as your friends and family look on. The natural golden light shimmers behind the tree branches. Fallen leaves that showcase autumn’s rich colors litter the ground. Have your guests eat while they take in their surroundings that are full of yellowing trees.

    Bring the trees inside

    If you can’t have an outdoor wedding, then go ahead and rent tree saplings and adorn them with lights. Line the aisle with potted trees. You can also use tree saplings as high-impact centerpieces. Surround them with amber candles for a captivating twilight glow. If the wedding reception area is small, then stick to one or two gorgeously detailed “indoor” tree arrangements.

    Color schemes

    Fall colors include purple, chocolate, crimson, orange, moss green, and burgundy. Gold and crimson look bold and elegant when used together.

    Add plenty of greenery in your bouquets for an earthy effect. Use fiddlehead ferns as accents.

    For the décor at the back of your guests’ chairs, mix bare branches with flowers. The delicate minimalist lines of branches add charm and character.

    Wedding invitations and place cards

    Use recycled paper and embossed leaf or tree motifs for your wedding invites. Stick the escort cards that bear your guests names onto mini pumpkins. This reinforces your outdoor autumnal theme.
