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 in 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, and the autumn months bring many benefits such as 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 Orlando, Florida.
Creating an Autumn-Inspired Wedding in Orlando
For most people, creating a very genuine Autumn inspired feel is easy, simply get married in the Fall! However, if you’re getting married in Orlando, chances are that whether it’s May or November, you’re going to get warmer weather and a very bright sun throughout your wedding day.
Don’t let that stop you from embracing the Autumn wedding vibes, though! There is a lot you can do to bring every bit of those warm colors and those cozy, Autumn inspired vibes all throughout your Orlando wedding.
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.
You can also think outside the box and wear a black wedding dress or embrace a candle-lit wedding ceremony. Both of those ideas we’ve had the chance of seeing and can say that both are pulled off beautifully, especially if you’re getting married this time of year!
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! This will transform your wedding into a very autumn-inspired affair, even if we are in Florida where summer tends to linger all year round.
Plus, how many times will you have the chance to show off these natural Autumn colors right here in Orlando? Your wedding is a perfect time to take advantage of opportunities that you aren’t typically presented with throughout your life.
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.
Centerpieces are such a huge part of the decor so by diving into the fun when it comes to centerpieces you’ll be able to make your wedding venue look like an Autumn paradise! Nothing beats those warm colors in the middle of each table at the wedding venue in Orlando to contrast the beautiful weather we get in the late Autumn and early Winter.
