How to Incorporate Fall Into Your Wedding

Now that our wedding season is winding down, it’s time to get to our regular scheduled blogging! 

Fall is a favorite of ours here at Sweetchic – mostly because it comes with it’s own warm and cozy ambiance, but with cool crisp days. That’s basically the recipe for a perfect wedding day, don’t you think? Here in Chicago, it’s already starting to feel like winter, but we like to think that we still officially have 2 months of fall!

We love the idea of bringing the fall ambiance into your wedding. Now, we aren’t talking fall overload – leaves galore with a brown and orange color palette, but more subtle, chic, hints throughout your day.

Escort Cards

Orange pumpkins a little to Halloween-y for you? These gorgeous white pumpkins as escort cards are very elegant!

Okay, so we can’t promise you no leaves. But these escort cards are so delicate and cute that we couldn’t resist. Now, I wouldn’t recommend scrounging your backyard for the perfect leaf — but craft store bought leaves will do just fine!

Fruits & Vegetables
Well it is harvest season….
Try incorporating flowering purple kale, apples, or artichokes into your centerpieces for a unique twist.

Jewel Tones
When we think fall we think dark, rich jewel tones such as burgundy, Merlot, and purple.

Signature Drinks
Create a special drink for your wedding that when your guests take a sip they say “Mmm…tastes like fall.”
Anything with bourbon, cinnamon, or apple cider is sure to be loved!

Treats & Favors
We all know that when fall arrives, all the delicious comfort foods come with it…

Set-up a mini-pie buffet (with all the fall flavors of course!) for you guests instead of cake or as a favor!
