The peak wedding season runs from May to October. Why is this so?
Surely people can understand why couples would love to have their wedding when the weather is nice and sunny. But why would couples want to have their weddings in the autumn? The weather in autumn can be cold and cloudy.
Well, cold and cloudy weather isn’t always an issue for an autumn wedding. And there are also many other benefits to having a fall wedding in 2023. Read on to learn about some of them.
Book Your Fall Wedding Now
Fall is six months away! Why do I need to book my fall wedding now? I have plenty of time to prepare.
You may think that, but fall is going to come faster than you think. And there are many other reasons why you need to get that fall wedding venue booked ASAP.
Venues Fill Up Quick
Wedding venues fill up quickly and this is especially the case for the more popular venues. The first part of your wedding planning process should be choosing a wedding venue and booking it.
You may even want to book a wedding venue right after someone presents a ring. I’m not kidding. If you already have that dream venue in mind, pounce on it.
The Planning Process Takes Time
You probably have a set period in mind for how long it will take to complete your fall wedding checklist. If so, make that period longer. The wedding planning process is a lot more involved than you’d expect.
Frankly, it’s better to be safe than sorry. Give yourself more time than you think is necessary to get your wedding ready. Chilling out for a bit is better than going through a hundred panic attacks.
Reasons to Have a Fall Wedding in 2023
Okay, so why do people love fall weddings so much? Are there a lot of people booking venues for Halloween so they can have the spookiest wedding possible? No, the answers are a lot simpler than that.
Fall Wedding Photos
Have you SEEN fall colors? Sure, summer flowers can make a great wedding photo background. But nothing compares to the red, orange, and yellow colors of fall.
Red is the color of love and passion, after all. And don’t worry about matching a white dress and/or a black suit with those fall colors. White and black go with everything.
Unique Fall Ingredients
Does anybody want pumpkin spice? Okay, maybe this flavor isn’t for everyone. But you can take advantage of the dozens of foods available during the harvest season.
Apples, garlic, eggplants, and more are at their freshest during the fall season. Make sure to add dishes that incorporate them into your wedding menu. It will be a delicious experience for everyone.
Even if you have an indoor wedding venue (like you would with us), the weather can still be important. People wouldn’t want to get their fancy clothing wet when walking to the venue in the rain. They may also struggle with extremely hot car rides in their fancy clothing.
Fall temperatures tend to be not too cold and not too hot. Your guests should stay comfortable while they travel to your venue.
One Special Date
The most popular wedding date this year is in the fall. It’s September 23rd, 2023, aka 9/23/2023.
Yes, the double “23” gives this date a special flair. But this date also has significance within numerology. It’s a 5, 5, and 3 date, and fives and threes represent life.
You get these numbers when you add up the date numbers using numerology formulas. So, hold your wedding on this fall date to get some extra luck.
Fall Wedding Ideas
Are you struggling to think about some perfect themes for your fall wedding? Why not use the season around you for some inspiration? Consider some of the ideas below.
Yes, Halloween happens in the autumn. You can have a fun and eventful time in a venue filled with witches, bats, and other spooky characters. You can even have everyone dress in costume.
But if this isn’t your thing, remember that Thanksgiving is also a fall holiday. You can easily decorate your venue with leaves, turkeys, and everything else that people love about this holiday.
Fall Flower Arrangements
Not everyone has a favorite flower. If you and your significant other don’t, consider matching your flower arrangements to the colors of the season. The fall season is the best time to use darker shades like rust, plum, and burgundy.
Fall flowers also tend to have a rustic and harvest-time feel. So along with your marigolds and sunflowers, add some natural elements like acorns and oak leaves. In addition, you should make them look as wild as possible.
What to Wear at a Fall Wedding
Fall weather is usually mild, but that doesn’t include the evenings. Brides and bridesmaids who are wearing lighter-layered dresses may want to have something warm on hand. They can easily wear some fancy toppers such as cozy wraps or fur shrugs.
But brides can embrace heavier and more elaborate dresses during this time. Fall is a great time for long-sleeved and floor-length dresses.
Grooms and groomsmen may want to wear suits in darker shades that can match the fall weather around them. They can accessorize these with matching ties or bow ties, fall-inspired boutonnieres, and metallic cuff links.
