Every bride and groom want to host the wedding of the year - a night that they and their guests will talk about for years to come. But how to stand out from the crowd? It could be as simple as choosing the right time of year...
When we think ‘wedding season’ our minds go straight to the summer months of June, July and August. Contrary to this common belief, The Knot’s 2015 Real Wedding Study came to the conclusion that fall is creeping it’s way to the top of the most popular wedding season. This may come as a surprise to some but should it? Fall offers a beautiful, vibrant and colourful scenery, perfect for any unique wedding landscape. When choosing your wedding date, you may want to switch your attention to fall months and here’s why:
Everyone can attend the wedding – As opposed to summer when many have packed schedules filled with travel plans and outdoor fun, in fall people tend to have less plans so are less likely to face a dilemma when deciding to go to your wedding or not.
In-season food – Fall brings about delicious in-season flavours that will leave you and your guests wanting more. Cinnamon, apples, nutmeg, pumpkin and squash can be incorporated into every course because who doesn’t love pumpkin pie?! And don’t forget the spiked hot apple cider!
Honeymoon - Having your honeymoon in summer may mean cleaning out your wallets as this is the peak season for travelling. The fall, however, is low season which brings about cheaper air and hotel prices which is ideal from the brides and grooms hoping to save some money.
Cooler temperatures – Brides, grooms and the wedding party don’t have to shy away from an outdoor photo shoot. This season is cooler than summer months so sweating through your dress or tuxedo won’t be a worry.
Unique colour scheme – Fall offers a different combination of colours, including rich and glamorous hues that fit the time of year. This can include the typical foliage colours of autumn or even plum and aubergine combined with shades of cream and blush. The combinations are endless and are most definitely pastel-free.
Unique venue and décor – From the vibrant colours to the lighting and center-pieces, autumn makes that unique wedding venue possible. Flowers are always going to dazzle your guests, but you can think outside the box to squash, pumpkins, leaves and the likes. You can make it yours and a wedding to remember!
