Take a look at these wedding planning ideas before you exchange those matching wedding bands.
Here’s another great thing about having your wedding in the fall– all the fall-themed wedding favors!

Capture the elegance of autumn by incorporating fall colors or leaf accents into your cake. For example, this cake with yellow and orange rose accents and this cake with fall leaves seem to capture the essence of autumn perfectly.
If you want to your cake to be a little more subdued, try something like this ombre cake. It uses hints of orange to subtly complement the season.
Since you don’t have to worry as much about matching food to temperatures (i.e. serving hot food in the winter and cold food in the summer), try to incorporate seasonal foods. For example, use apples, pears, squash, figs, and pumpkins in creative ways. To see what the food trends are for weddings this fall, check out this video from the Huffington Post for some ideas.
