1) Delightful Decor
Pumpkins are inexpensive and in season for Fall weddings. They are also very versatile when it comes to decor because they come in so many shapes and sizes. You can choose to stack pumpkins for taller centerpieces or to make an arrangements that includes flowers, candles and pumpkins. Or hollow out the inside of the pumpkins and use them for a vase! Another cool idea we saw was drilling holes in pumpkins (instead of scarry faces!) and use them to illuminate a path. We love the image above where pumpkins are being pumpkins, setting on hay bales just like at the pumpkin patch! Very country, very cute, and full of fond memories of the season. Dress them up or dress them as they come, pumpkins are a great addition to your fall wedding décor.

2) Good Eats!
Oh boy, don’t even get me started on all the pumpkin dishes, desserts, and delights! One simple idea is pie. Sooo much cheaper than a wedding cake! Plus you could offer more options like pecan or apple. Pumpkin and squash are used for more than just desserts though! Ever heard of pumpkin soup? It’s savory and delicious, and perfect for cooler fall nights. Squash can be used in pastas, as a side dish, or even in mixed drinks and coffees. Choosing seasonal foods for your menu is better for the environment in addition to being festive so be sure to experiment and ask your catering team about seasonal fare.

3) Playful Place Cards
We love the tiny golden pumpkin place cards for seating assignments! Glamourous gold, so elegant! If gold isn’t your thing, how about some glitter? Go ahead, make Cinderella proud! Plus your guests will enjoy this token of your affection for the rest of the season. So sweet!

Wedding Trends that Wont Get Old

  Smaller Guest Lists Let love sweep you off your feet, not a room full of people to greet! After months (or maybe even years!) of planning, you will be surprised at how quickly your wedding day flies by. At the end of it all you will likely feel exhausted. . . and hungry! One way to truly savor the day is to spend it with the people you love the most. So don’t extend an invitation to anyone you feel obligated to or someone who you worry might be offended if left out, or any distant relative you don’t speak to on a regular basis. A smaller guest list will eliminate stress and allow you to spend more time and money entertaining those closest to you. Your wedding day will feel more intimate and warm surrounded by the people who share in your everyday happiness. Live Bands/Entertainment One more trend we love is live entertainment.
