Fall Foliage Venues That Match Your Color Scheme

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 05, 2013

From mid-September to late October, leaves transform their summer shades of green into the reds, oranges, and yellows that signify autumn’s return all over the country. The vibrant backdrops are perfect for any fall wedding. Choose a color scheme that will not only complement your venue but also Mother’s Nature scenery. Take a look at how these real couples pulled it off:

1. Haunted Historic Home = Red + Orange 

Lindsey and Skyler’s halloween-themed wedding was located at Belvoir Winery, also known as one of the most haunted locations in the Midwest. Guests helped carve over 100 pumpkins! See more here.

Part of the fun of planning your wedding is truly making the day your own. All too often couples get caught up in following “the rules” of wedding planning and end up with an event that feels cookie-cutter. Our advice: if a wedding tradition doesn’t feel right to you, skip it! Here are our top 10 traditions that you can totally skip on your wedding day. You don’t have to…

  1. Wear a white dress (or a veil!)

  2. Have the same number of bridesmaids and groomsmen (or have a wedding party at all!)

  3. Toss the bouquet or garter

  4. Wear something old, new, borrowed, or blue

  5. Have a receiving line

  6. Write your own vows

  7. Have your dad (or anyone!) give you away

  8. Waiting until the ceremony to see each other

  9. Have a first dance

  10. Seat the bride’s side and groom’s side separately

Which wedding traditions are you skipping on your wedding day? Which traditions are you planning on keeping?

Tristyn & Philip

May 5

Shelbeyville, Texas

Tristyn and Philip’s wedding was a work from the heart. They had it at Tristyn’s parent’s home in Shelbeyville, Texas. The feathers, champagne & pinks everywhere, and the beautifully perfect day made this wedding truly memorable!

And a little snippet of their day:
