fall bridal bouquet

Ahhh, 'tis the fall season! I think that I'm with most of the country in my love and passion for all things fall. The colors, the sights, the sounds – I love everything fall! I really just love the changing of the seasons, something about that new-ness a few times of year that keeps me motivated!

here is nothing better than the turn from the hot summer into the cool, crisp fall weather. Fall in the Washington DC area where I live also means lots of weddings! I was married in October on the Eastern Shore of Maryland and I can still see the falling leaves and the pumpkins now! Fall and weddings will always have my heart!

To celebrate the season of fall and all of the fabulous fall weddings out there, in this installment of Garter Girl Loves, I found lots of fall wedding inspiration on Etsy. From hand calligraphy pumpkins to wedding singage, there are so many great ways to enjoy the fall season at your wedding. Plus a few last minute fall wedding tips and tricks for you too!

Last Minute Fall Wedding Tips & Advice

If you are running around at the last minute for your wedding in the fall, you are in the right spot. This is the best season to make it work! Between the pumpkins and the bails of hay, everywhere you turn there are decorations. The best part of fall decorations is that they are plentiful and affordable!

Here are a few tips if you find your self with a pile of to-do's for your fall wedding and not much time to get it done:
  • Do Not Stress:  Whatever you do, don't stress out. Stress never looked good on any bride. Your guests will never know what they don't see, so don't worry too much. Yes, you might be disappointed that you didn't get it done, but you'll be even more upset if that stress is written all over your face in your wedding photos. 
  • Take Advantage Of The Season:  Look all around you because you can make it work in the fall. Everywhere you turn in the fall, there are decorations. Do not be above a big pile of hay bails and piles of pumpkins - it is rustic chic at its finest! From the tables to the entrances, you'll be all set. Throw in some pumpkin spice anything and your guests will be in heaven! 
  • Embrace The Season:  The fall has lots of natural built-ins like apple cider and pumpkin spice that we know everyone already loves! Take advantage of what fall has to offer. Your guests won't know that you threw it together at the last minute, they will just love the pumpkin flavored everything and anything!
  • Get Cozy:  It can go from a warm and sunny day to a chilly evening in the blink of an eye in the fall. Be prepared with a wrap or a cover for yourself and your bridesmaids, even if you think you won't need it. Think of your guests too. You can provide pashminas for you guests, it will keep them cozy and its a favor too! Done and done! 
  • Timing Is Everything:  Remember that it gets darker earlier in the fall. So, back in the summer when you made your day of timeline, be sure to revisit that now that you know what time it really gets dark. You will want to plan your photos outside in the just perfect setting sun! 
  • Don't Be Too Literal:  Keep in mind that much of fall is Halloween. There is a way to do a fall theme for your wedding without going over the top and making it too fall. You know what I mean? You can do elegant fall perfectt for a wedding without having to do over-the-top scary Halloween - unless that is your style, of course!
