Now that you have your fall wedding color scheme picked out it is time to plan your decor and floral design. Working with professional florists and wedding planners can be a huge help in figuring out how to best incorporate your theme ideas in a sophisticated way but to get the ball rolling here are some fun ideas!
Idea #1: Incorporate natural materials like wooden baskets, berries, gourds and pumpkins to bring a little outside in.
Idea #2: Add a pop of color to your decor through beautiful linens within your color scheme - event rentals companies and fabric stores (check out online options like www.fabric.com) will be your best bet.
Idea # 3: Flowers are getting scarce by mid fall making bouquets pricey. Opting for non traditional bouquets featuring berries, ferns, branches, leaves and/or succulents can decrease your costs and add a ton of visual interest!
Idea #4: Keep guests cozy if the venue has indoor and outdoor guest areas. Guests love the extra touch and comfort provided by throws for cold shoulders and laps, propane outdoor heaters and adorable cocoa bars. Try Amazon and the Oriental Trading Company for ideas to keep guests feeling like VIPs in the chilly weather.
Idea #5: Add candles for visual warmth. Have you checked out Save on Crafts yet? The go-to online supplier of discount and diy wedding and craft supplies. So many cute options for candles and candle holders.
Idea #6: Nothing says October like some beer steins for the groomsmen (and bridesmaids). Bring in a hint of Oktober Fest to add to the festivities. Etsy has SO many cute options (check out shops like Urban Farmhouse for a WIDE variety of awesome personalized items!).

So much fun having a little mini engagement session with my sweet wedding clients Nick & Shawna! Nothing better than a gorgeous couple who is equally as beautiful on the inside! I can't wait for their wedding next month - so many awesome details planned!! Thanks so much Nick & Shawna! You two are so sweet!
A beautiful waterfront ceremony and a cheerful reception featuring wood fired pizzas created on site made Chris & Shyloh's Anacortes, WA wedding such a blast! These two had such fun details as well like custom made shoes to match their wedding colors and dart guns for the kids to play with. Add perfect weather, a gorgeous couple and welcoming family & friends and this wedding was as close to perfect as it gets - they were even on time & ready for everything which is almost unheard of!! Thanks so much Chris and Shyloh for letting me be part of your amazing wedding day! I am so happy for you both!
