Pumpkin Spice and Everything Nice…at a Fall Wedding
Posted on August 27 2018
The anticipation for the season for pumpkin spice can be correlated to the anticipation for one’s wedding day. It’s exciting and represents a very welcomed change. The limited time event or offer creates a buzz that people can’t get enough of. Despite the heat of summer still lingering, fall is approaching and so are beautiful fall arrangements and pumpkin spice galore. Obsessed with pumpkin spice and trying to incorporate it into your big day? Consider using pumpkins as décor. Depending on their size, you could even have one in your bouquet! Want to deviate from all that orange, choose different shapes and sizes and paint some different colors! Want people to taste fall? Consider offering pumpkin treats or drinks! Try a pumpkin spice cake wedding cake! Take the traditional coffee and offer pumpkin spice lattes; if you are feeling daring, offer pumpkin cocktails such as a pumpkin pie martini or pumpkin beer. Fall offers gorgeous foliage that can be incorporated into your wedding or could possibly just be in the surrounding area. Take advantage of the changing of the season and the change in the colors of the trees. Fall colors offer more than just the traditional pumpkin orange. Try incorporating mauves, neutrals, some pops of unexpected colors, metallics and coppers. Some fall flowers that are specific to the season just add to your weddings perfection. Incorporating dahlias in your wedding may be a beautiful touch especially in their burgundy color. Flowers with a striking black center such as anemones or sun flowers can help tie in a touch of summer while adding a rustic or sophisticated style. Marigolds or mums are classic fall flowers offering many shades of golds, oranges, and reds. Using berries, vines, and other untraditional foliage is a great way to fill your bouquet without taking away from the flowers or breaking the bank. Need favor ideas? Offer a small pumpkin with a cute message from the couple. Maybe a little pumpkin pie with a fork wrapped in a cute personalized box. Or a small bag of pumpkin coffee for the morning after!
