Fall is the most romantic time of the year to fall in love and say “I do”. The season of love will soon be here than you know it. If you have planned to get married in fall, then be quick as a wink. Many things are to be done like choosing the right venue, dress, decorations, and a lot more. Short of time and ideas? Do not worry.

Your choice of colour will decide the mood of your wedding. Here are some ideas to help you choose a perfect colour scheme.

Seasonal Colours: Autumn gives you plenty of charming colours like orange, mustard, and deep red. But you can always add an unusual touch with unexpected tones like grey, eggplant, and green.

Festive Touch: Give a modern twist to the traditional autumn colour scheme by adding some jewel tones in the colour scheme. Rich colours like golden, emerald green and ruby red give a celebratory vibe.
Mix Metallic Shades: To add more drama, add metallic shades like copper and bronze.

For Outdoor Weddings
Outdoor weddings give you the chance to make the most of nature. Here are some wonderful decoration ideas that will help adorn your outdoor wedding.

Back to Nature: Decorate the space with fall items to enhance the natural bounty and beauty. Use pumpkin, gourds, fall leaves dipped in gold, and bales of hay. Why not exchange your vows under an arch covered with tree branches and leaves.

Leaves: Nothing says fall more than orange and brown leaves. For instant effect, scatter leaves on your tables. Also, ask your baker to decorate the cake with autumn leaves and foliage.
Fireworks: Why not display the rich colours of fall in the sky. Light up the sky with glitzy fireworks and impress your guests.

Lighting: For an evening reception, light up the space with paper lanterns in different shapes and colours. To create a festive ambience, hang strings of twinkling lights. Also, use candles to illuminate the space and create a romantic and warm setting.

Lighting: Bring the season in with effective use of lighting. Use gobo lighting effects and create a branch or leave pattern on the dance floor or on the ceiling of the tent or room. It will create a look as if early sun beams are pouring out through the trees. Also, you can change the mood and setting with mood lighting. Start the cocktail hour with a sunny effect and move to pink and purple sunset effect during the dinner. As the night approaches and guests head to the dance floor, create a deep blue ambience.

Indoor Foliage
