Many people are excited about the fall, and you probably are too because your wedding is coming up. Fall weddings are beautiful, but they can be hard to plan because the weather isn’t always predictable. Here are some tips for planning a flawless fall wedding.
Get a tent
One of the first things you need to do is invest in tent rentals. There are a few reasons for this. One, tent rentals allow you to define the space outside so you have a designated area for the festivities. Also, tents protect your guests from the weather, no matter if it’s rain or shine. Your guests don’t want to get wet, and they don’t want to get sunburned either.
Dont forget the dance floor rentals
Speaking of wedding rentals, you should also invest in a dance floor rental. It isn’t too much fun to dance in the grass, and a dance floor rental gives you that defined space to let your guests know where the dancing will be taking place. Plus, you’ll know where to set up the DJ and the speakers if your guests will all be dancing in one place.
Let nature be your backdrop
Many brides want to go all-out when they decorate for their weddings. While you can still do that if you wish, you should consider letting nature take the lead. If you’re to be outside, the fall foliage will be gorgeous. You can also use nature-inspired decor like leafy centerpieces and a branch alter.
Tie in seasonal food and beverages
Another way you can tie in the season is to let it inspire your menu for the night. Supply some apple cider, pumpkin pie, and some fall-themed beers and hard ciders for beverages.
Have a backup plan
Finally, make sure you have a backup plan. Again, fall weather is unpredictable. So, make sure you have an indoor option or even walls to close in your tent and keep your guests warm. You can pass out blankets and hot chocolate as favors to make sure your guests are toasty.
In 2012, the average cost of a wedding was $26,951. Having an outdoor wedding can help save you money, but doing that in the fall can be tricky. Make sure you follow these tips so the day you say, “I do” is truly the best day ever.
