Inspiration Board: Autumn Wedding

I love this time of year: the great weather, the change of the leaves, hot apple cider, pumpkins and lazy Sundays! Saturdays in the fall, however, are full of weddings as September and October are two of the most popular wedding months. In addition, October is also the busiest and most popular time for corporate events (more on that in another post!).

Here are a few fall wedding tips:
Autumn colors: Oranges, ochres, reds, browns, champagne, rich yellows, peaches, plums, golds and copper - and in 2008, the trend is to add navy!

Autumn flowers: Roses, orchids, gardenias, mums and dahlias. Enhancements: berries in rich shades.

Decor enhancements/ideas: Use treated bark and leaves (appropriately - see photos below); adorn entry ways with with lighted foliate (either real or silk); embrace textures for your linens, paper products, ribbons, and centerpieces.
