6 Benefits of Having a Fall Wedding

When you start planning your special day, it can seem like you have a million different decisions to make. And sure, you’ve narrowed down your guest list or named your maid of honor and best man, or decided which song you’ll dance to first, but what about the actual date? If you can’t make up your mind, these benefits of having a fall wedding might help.

The colors of fall

From warm oranges to brilliant reds, the colors of fall will add a sense of natural splendor to your special day. Not to mention, they make it easy to choose your wedding’s color scheme! And of course: we can’t forget just how stunning they’ll look in the backdrop of all your photos—especially if they’re our Japanese maples.

Moderate temperatures

Melted makeup. Sweat-stained clothes. Heat-induced exhaustion. These reasons alone make a case for a fall wedding. After all, in the South, a summer ceremony comes with its challenges! And even better, you can actually hold every event on the agenda outside here at Crooked Oaks.

Holiday-themed wedding possibilities

Maybe you want to take advantage of having the whole family around during Thanksgiving. Or, you love Halloween, and want to add some spooky spirit to your special day. One of the benefits of having a fall wedding is that you can incorporate your favorite autumn holidays into the mix for a themed approach.

Tasty menu ideas

Fall has a set of truly iconic flavors! Whether you prefer pumpkin or need apple everything, you can infuse a sense of autumn into your menu. Don’t be afraid to get creative, either! Figs, parsnips, and pears—you have so many options on the table.

Seasonal décor

Is it really fall without cornucopias, pumpkins, and sunflowers? You can lean into the theme—and set out some gorgeous décor—when you plan a fall wedding.

Flexibility for guests

Around Thanksgiving, many folks happen to have a bit of time off work! That can make it so much simpler to schedule a special day when everyone can come, as opposed to a busier time of year. After all, you can’t forget friends, family, and loved ones!
