With a brand new wedding season just around the corner, brides across the country are scrambling to tie up loose ends and make sure that every last detail is perfect for their special day. If you're planning on hosting your nuptials in the crisp fall air, here are some must-have items that you may have missed.
While many brides choose to have their flower girls throw rose petals, harnessing the natural beauty of fall can make for a much more interesting and unique walk down the isle. Collecting an assortment of colored leaves is easy for those who live near trees, but it can be hard to guarantee that the foliage will stay bright. Personalized fall leaves are a better option, as they are made from a high quality silk material that captures the beauty of natural leaves and are guaranteed to look great on the wedding day.
Several items can be used to incorporate the colors and atmosphere of the fall season during the reception. Brides should set the table using fall themed photo coasters, which can contain individualized shots of the couple and make for a nice party favor at the end of the night. Maple leaf place card holders are an excellent choice for formal dinner settings and coordinate well with rich table linens in reds or golden yellow.
The fall season is known for its chilly air and is an excellent time for wedding hosts to explore different types of wines that will warm the body and the soul. If your event will have an open bar, provide the bartender with attractive wine cork candles, which keep open bottles fresh in a chic and truly original way. Kids who attend your wedding day celebration will love to select treats from fall leaf candy dishes, which can be placed on the dessert table or around the room.
Breaking from traditional wedding day favors, mini wooden bird houses are a simple and fun gift that can provide hours of outdoor entertainment for each guest. These adorable houses can be filled with any type of birdseed and are sure to attract a lot of attention from the bird community as they search for their last meals before the winter season hits.
