Are you having a Fall Wedding? I have put together this inspiration board to give you some simple (yet stunning) ideas for your Fall wedding. This rustic fall wedding was special to me, not only was it for my best friend… I also was the wedding coordinator- so it had to be fabulous!
The primary color was Espresso which was accented with fall reds and oranges throughout.
Fall flowers were selected: vibrant orange, yellow, and red calla lilies popped against the espresso cocktail dresses the bridesmaids wore.
Candles placed glass jars hung from tree branches and gave that romantic feel.
Rustic “Wedding” arrow signs were handmade and directed guests to the main event.
Are you planning a wedding? Don’t waste your money on these 3 things that guests could care less about!
1. Trinkets as Favors- The majority of wedding reception favors are left behind once the night is over. Why? Well who really needs one silver 3×5 frame or one heart shaped place card holder? For your favors, consider an adorable edible gift. I do not mean a tulle bag of Jordan almonds either- there are so many options these days. Change to an edible favor and I bet that not too many will be left behind. Bonus- edible favors typically costs less which will allow you to increase your budget on more important things…..like flowers!
2. Personalized Embossed Cocktail Napkins- Yes, I had these at my wedding. Why? I have no idea because it was not 1980. Take it from me, save the $150 and put it towards something else (did I mention flowers would be a good place?). The solid, standard cocktail napkins will do just fine.
3. 200 Ceremony Programs- If ceremony programs are important to you, go ahead and have them. Just please, don’t order one for each guest. Order one for every couple (or just divide guest list by 2). Not every guest will even read your program and after your 20 minute ceremony, the ground will most likely be scattered with tossed programs anyway.
Hostess Tip- To avoid “running out” of programs, have your ushers or site staff place one program on every other ceremony chair rather than handing them out as guests arrive.
I hope these simple ways to save money help you stretch your wedding budget when you are planning your fabulous day!
