School is starting up again, meaning fall is upon us! Can you believe summer is almost to an end? I have mixed feelings… while I’m sad to see my first summer pass during our new life together as Mr. & Mrs., I am gladdened by the fact that we will be able to spend summers together for the rest of our lives!
I am also gladdened by the fact that apple picking season is on the horizon. 😉 What a blissful event! Enjoying fall colors and smells while picking apples, and eating apple cider donuts…. Mmmm 🙂 Such a wonderful and romantic event is the perfect inspiration for a Fall wedding.
Indulge me as I plan your picturesque autumn wedding for you…. 😉
The simplistic beauty in this tablescape captures the essence of fall and the celebration of nature. A single apple favor at each seat, a natural looking table runner, and rich greenery can achieve a very sophisticated look.
How sweet is this invitation suite? (No pun intended :/ no really…) Kraft paper brown envelopes lined with red gingham-esque paper, and a chalkboard card. This look is so achievable too! If you use my invitation template, simply add a chalkboard background and make your font white. I think it would look fabulous!
This bouquet is perfect for a fall apple wedding. Don’t the colors remind you of those yellows, pinks, reds, and greens that you see in apples? It has yellow/cream garden roses and peonies, pinky/red garden roses and dahlias, and pretty ferns as greenery.
This goes without saying… a fall apple themed wedding just wouldn’t be complete without apple cider and apple cider donuts 🙂 I love the pretty wheat accent and the rustic setting.
Emerald green is the perfect compliment to all the apple colors you are incorporating. Not only is it a fabulously gorgeous fall color that has not been overdone (orange, maroon, and brown are great and all, but I’m ready to see something new), BUT, it is also the Pantone color of the year!!!! Please, try to contain your excitement about this… Uh oh, you’re getting married next year though? Never fear, it takes at least a whole year for the color to fully catch on. 🙂 Have I sold you yet?? 😉
The exposed layers on this apple surrounded cake further the autumnal simplicity and natural beauty. Don’t you just love the green table runner too? (It’s almost emerald) 😉
On a side note, I always thought those types of exposed layer cakes were called ‘naked cakes’ due to their lack of frosting. Well, apparently that name is not widely known judging by the look on my baker’s face when I asked for a naked cake…. Let’s just say that was an uncomfortable experience.
Use apples in your floral decor. Adding fruit to floral arrangements is all the rage these days! And look how beautifully the colors mingle. 🙂
And finally, give a nod to apples with bright red punches throughout your wedding! These shoes are simply fabulous and really pop against the neutral dresses. If shoes are too bold, have all of your girls rock some red lipstick.
Have I convinced you yet?? 😉 Happy planning! And I’ll leave you with a ‘pinnable’ image. If you like my blog, follow me via Bloglovin’ (also on the sidebar to the right) 🙂
