With fall in the air (sort of) it means that it’s also a beautiful season filled with fall weddings!

Planning a wedding takes about a year. So it you’re recently engaged, now is the time to start planning your fall wedding. But where do you begin? What things do you need to think about to pull this off? Fortunately, we have a bunch of tips and tricks for planning the spectacular fall wedding if your dreams.

Be aware of weather

Fall, especially early fall, can be a bit difficult to predict temperature wise. So it’s best to be prepared for it to either be unseasonably warm or cold on your wedding day. If you’re getting married outside, try to have fans or blankets ready to go for your guests. Order these closer to your wedding date so that you have an idea of how the weather might behave. As always, you should have a rain plan for your venue, but strange temperatures can be more likely depending on where you live.

Add some fall inspiration

While it may be a bit over the top for some couples to incorporate fall into their wedding, there are subtle ways to do it. Adding straw bales for seating, gourds at your entrance or preserved leaves can add a touch of fall throughout your wedding. Showcasing the season can help make your wedding memorable and gorgeous. If you aren’t into having fall items in your wedding, using gold metallic accents still look wonderful, and can make your big day seem a bit more fall oriented.

Use nature to your advantage

The changing leaves, the cooler (hopefully) air and overall aesthetic of autumn are reason enough to get married during the fall months. Getting married outside in this gorgeous season is really a great way to take advantage of it. Getting married in the mountains, a national park or even near a forest is a great way to have a beautiful backdrop without spending a ton of extra month decorations for your ceremony.

Take advantage of seasonal flowers

Flowers are definitely one of the most expensive items in your wedding budget. While you can get most blooms throughout the whole year, using flowers that are in season will save your some money in your floral budget. Using seasonal flowers will not only match the atmosphere of your big day, but they will also be budget friendly picks for you. Most florists will know what’s in season, and can point you to the perfect flowers for you if you tell them what you’re looking for.

Getting married in the autumn gives you resources and perks that are not available in the other seasons. Having a fall wedding can come with it’s own list of things you need to consider, but the beauty of fall is reason enough to pick it. Wedding planning is fun, but just give yourself plenty of time to prepare, especially if you have a particular season in mind.
