Perhaps we’ve been scorned one too many times sitting through a ceremony in the scorching heat, or maybe we’re leaving the summer season for bachelor and bachelorette parties and other travel festivities. Overall, it is clear the fall season has sky-rocketed to become the most popular time to host a wedding. October has been at the top since 2016 when it surpassed June as the most popular wedding month (then tied with September).
More and more couples have also opted to host their wedding ceremony outdoors in recent years. The autumn months bring many benefits to this such as the temperate weather and beautiful foliage. The busy wedding season has shifted later in the year, and these real weddings below display the season beautifully giving further proof that autumn is arguably the most beautiful season to host a wedding in Baton Rouge.
Autumn Wedding Attire
When it comes to autumn attire, you can really pull the best of the summer and winter seasons and get away with almost anything here! Warm or cool color palettes, velvet or linen fabrics, and colorful or neutral flowers will fly!
There are no official rules, but a classic autumn wedding is inspired by nature’s changing atmosphere. Shades of reds, yellows, and oranges, or colors reminiscent of fall leaves, are classic to an autumn wedding color scheme.
Types of Autumn Wedding Florals
This wedding season has some of your most whimsical bouquets with pampas grass, wheat, seeded eucalyptus, or even berries. There are various types of dried flowers and grass that can bring fall vibes to your florals like phalaris, glixia, and lagarus. We promise these foreign-sounding words are the real deal!
Autumn-Inspired Centerpieces & Decor
You might not necessarily want your wedding to feel like you’re walking into a fall craft show. Therefore, when it comes to decorating for an autumn wedding, you have to be tasteful and true to elegance. Lead with florals (dried, real, or faux) to help achieve a more romantic look.
Fall Wedding Food
When it comes to fall wedding food ideas, ingredients and flavors such as cinnamon, squash, and apples immediately come to mind. But you don’t have to fall victim to the traditional styles.
Some other ideas include cranberry BBQ meatballs for appetizers or pork tenderloin with Brussel sprouts and butternut squash for an entrée. The options are literally endless!
Autumn Themed Invitations
Wedding invitations set the tone. A wedding invitation is your first opportunity to share your vision with your guests. If you’re experimenting with color in your décor, go ahead and begin with the invitation.
We’re obsessed with bold designs, which incorporate botanical accents, textured details, and tonal hues like yellow, green, and copper.
