Adding small touches, such as swapping white chairs for burgundy, can spice up traditional white décor while complementing natural fall colors.
2. Create More Space
Putting multiple tables back-to-back and end-to-end can create large and spacious community tables while leaving a lot of room to move in between rows. It can also help to use folding chairs instead of traditional banquet chairs. Folding chairs can be put to the side and easily added to tables as needed so the space isn’t crowded with unnecessary chairs.
3. Choose Seasonal Flowers
When it comes to flowers, dahlias, chrysanthemums, pine oak, and asters are in peak season during the fall, and they can add great contrast. Reds flowers are an excellent choice for fall weddings, but if that color won’t work for the bride, orange and yellow flowers are good options.
Spruce up floral arrangements by adding non-floral, yet seasonal items such as crab apples, cranberries, and ornamental vegetables such as beetroot and globe artichokes.
4. Embrace Nontraditional Fabrics
Current wedding trends show velvet is being used in new and interesting ways such as napkins, arbors, table cards, and ceremony programs. Also, consider using fabrics in dark and edgy colors such as slate, emerald, jet, navy, and burnt orange. This can be particularly interesting since these colors are in direct contract with the traditional romantic décor and soft textures of most weddings.
