You may hold the ceremony in a garden, a vineyard, or a backyard, and have the reception inside a home or under a tent.  If it isn’t too cold and you plan to tie the knot during daytime, having both the ceremony and reception outdoors gives you more time to make the most of your beautiful surroundings.

Spruce up with colors.  Warm, rich tones like reds, oranges, yellows and gold are ideal for Autumn weddings.  A colorful mix of fall colors creates a more romantic ambiance and adds warmth to the scene.

Decorate with natureFoliage, fruits, and flowers of Autumn are all you need to decorate – whether it’s an indoor or outdoor wedding.  Natural materials such as burlap combined with lace, and an assortment of vintage collectibles mingled with the natural elements of the season would surely transform an ordinary space into an enchanting place.

Snuggle up.  Keep your guests warm and comfortable by having shawls handy.  These warmers can double as favors simply by embroidering your initials and wedding date on each one.

Wear a cardigan.  The weather can be pretty chilly in the fall, so if you’re bridal gown doesn’t have sleeves, make sure that you do not shiver in the cold by wearing a cozy cardigan.
