Romance of Autumn, an exquisite season for a beautiful Wedding.
“The summer-flower has run to seed,
And yellow is the woodland bough;
And every leaf of bush and weed
Is tipt with autumn’s pencil now.”
“Autumn-time, thy scenes and shades
Are pleasing to the tasteful eye;”
— John Clare (Fragments from The Village Minstrel, 1821)
Fall is beautiful, the red, maroon, gold, yellow and orange hues of the falling leaves make for a gorgeous visage that soothes the mind and romances the soul. It symbolizes change, maturity and wisdom. It is a great season for a stylish, elegant Wedding with a poetic touch!
The season’s very own colors are the perfect guide for planning your overall decoration and bridesmaids’ wardrobe too: earthy, warm tones such as rich copper, ochre, claret, burgundy, crimson, maroon and russet. You may want to add some Blue family variations such as violet, indigo and plum to complement your reds and golds.
Fall Wedding Scenery:
The scenery is a huge asset. You may want to plan for an outdoor wedding that makes full use of the beauty of the season. Most of the eastern part of the United States as well as smaller areas of forest further west purport some of the most brightly colored autumn foliage, Wikipedia even provides a useful map for Fall foliage peak times across the country. Investigate online for the best place and time for your magical Fall Wedding.
Alternatively, indoor weddings can benefit from branch centerpieces and leaf-themed ornaments and decor.
