The beauty and romance of fall is undeniable, and makes for the perfect addition for autumnal weddings. Here are a few tips and trends for happy couples looking to celebrate the season alongside their nuptials.
Soups, Stews and Glazes
Fall wedding menus are filled with meats paired with maple and bourbon glazes. Side dishes include chef-elevated fall veggies with a gourmet twist, making side dishes as enticing as the main course. Soups, particularly creamy squash soups and bisques, make the list for top wedding menu.
Unique Tip: Introduce a Soup Station, allowing guests to choose from several soups and add toppings like cheese, bread crumbs and chives.
Wild and Leafy Florals
Freshly picked, wild-looking bouquets still reign in wedding florals. For tabletops, opt for green and leafy arrangements featuring succulents, eucalyptus, wheat greens, acacia and bay leaf branches. Add pops of color with Brazilian pepper berries, hypericum berry spray or raspberries. Unexpected and whimsical add-ons include thistles and small leafy twigs.
Unique Tip: Wine-colored roses and dahlias are excellent fall florals that enhance drama and beauty.
