As we move quickly through the month of November, we’re falling deeper into a joyous fall season mood here at Riverhouse Catering. From the crisp, cool air to beautiful changing leaves on the trees, if you’re a lover of the fall season like us, then planning a wedding for this time of year, simply makes sense.
Whether you’ve decided on moody, dark colors for your wedding party or if your desire is to have a charming wedding in a barn, we’ve got you covered with tips on fall rustic weddings that ‘wow.’
An autumn wedding in New England is like something straight out of a tour guide. After all, Connecticut is home to some of the most beautiful, scenic views this time of year. Here are 3 things to think about to really tie in the rustic theme for your fall wedding.
Rustic Wedding Decorations
Whether your wedding takes place in a museum, barn or a classic ballroom, bringing the rustic theme home requires the perfect details. Tie in the burnt red and orange hues and fall foliage details. Consider sunflowers for bright, happy accents or go full-on rustic with burlap and other accents. Since the season is also for pumpkins, you can easily incorporate them into your room and table décor. Carry those beautiful orange hues into your food options as well by working with your caterer on menu options for pumpkin-based treats or soups to set the mood.
Rustic Wedding Cake Ideas
Another beautiful and memorable way to bring fall décor into your wedding is with your wedding cake or cupcakes. Create a design that matches the rest of the wedding’s theme by tying in those fall colors and textures.
One of the popular ways bakers are taking wedding cakes to the next level today is by adding in fresh floral blooms. Choose in-season flowers and have them incorporated into the design of your cake or cupcakes. Choose a rustic display like tree stump cake platters or tiered cupcake holders to carry the rustic vibe through to the end of the party.
Rustic Wedding Photographs
Long after your big day has passed, your wedding photographs will let you relive the memories. If you want to truly capture the essence of your fall rustic wedding, be sure that photographs are taken with this idea in mind. Request some staged photos outdoors to capture nature’s seasonal beauty and work together with your photographer for a plan that incorporates all the elements you’d like to capture for your big day.
