“Fall” In Love

m.jpg picture by lmorkelFall is my favorite time of the year, hands down.  The crisp air, the changing leaves, it is perfect. (plus Halloween!)

Fall weddings give you so many ways to add unique touches. Make sure if you are having a fall wedding to stay in season with your choices. You can do this through delicious flavors, rich autumn colors, and beautiful decor.

For your decor try using pumpkins with designs carved in them rather than scary faces. Use smaller pumpkins ( you can also find white pumpkins) and place them at each setting with a tea candle inside. Not only does is give you unique accent lighting, but it also stays within your theme (and budget). Guests can also take these home as favors.

Candy apples are also great favors, and flavors! Wrap them in clear bags and tie them with ribbons that match your colors.

When choosing your colors for you wedding, this years trends are not only rich but they are also bold. Try to use colors that are flattering to the surroundings, so they are complimenting and not competing. This years most popular colors are rich jewel tones and colors such as:

Ruby                                            Chocolate                                        Hot Pink                                           Bronze/ Gold                                 

The flavors of your wedding should also reflect the autumn season. Try traditional flavors such as pumpkin pie, cinnamon and apples, but in a stylish way- through cocktails! Here are some good ones:

Apple Cinnamon Toast
– 1 1/4 oz. Smirnoff Green Apple Twist vodka
– 1/2 oz. Goldschlager

2 oz. with cold milk
Garnish: sprinkle of cinnamon

Mix ingredients in blender with ice and blend thoroughly; Pour into graham cracker-rimmed highball glass and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon.

  • Hey! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
