White pumpkins

I was planning a summer wedding. Now I am pushed to mid-October. It didn’t annoy too much at first, but now it’s October1 yr. away from the wedding.

The summer feeling isn’t there and fall is coming in full swing with many people.

My colors are blues and grays and sage green.

Has anyone considered using white pumpkins as a mystic fall theme? Not too over done, but enough to feel the vibe of the season and keep the flow going.


Now I know whatever colors I choose shouldn’t matter etc etc. I keep having this itch that the original plan of a Summer backyard bbq doesn’t feel quite right In fall.

    My wedding is in November (still considered fall) my colors are pink and grey. I’m not using pumpkins, but I’m also having bbq. I think your colors will look great with pumpkins and it’ll keep it festive. If you don’t want to do pumpkins, you could always do “fall themed” favors such as s’mores, apple cider, etc.

    Our wedding is on Halloween and we are doing lots of different pumpkins to tie in fall which includes black and white pumpkins! I think they are really nice and can go with just about anything! I bought mine from Ross, Walmart, and the dollar tree! You could defiantly go with white pumpkins or if you want to keep the fall vibe do the bbq with apple cider or pumpkin spice to tie everything together! You could do scarves or blanket as a favor too!

    We got married the end of October last year and my colors were dusty rose, burgundy and sage green. we didn't have pumpkins either, but we did have hot apple cider and a coffee bar! I personally think you can do whatever colors and serve whatever food you want any time of the year, but I love the idea of fall themed favors/drinks/snacks for that fall vibe!

    Thanks! I think I will really go for it. Covid might be a bit of a snag so Plan B is a Drive-in ceremony and reception. Kinda sounding super cozy!

    Someone who did not call our farm to reserve pumpkins was very upset not to have them, small table size And big ones on the ground, near their cooking buffet. When she said her colors, like yours,, my 8 yr old suggested hubbard squash. Mostly light grey/ green, some a little bluish, we don't grow many white but found some. With straw from a hay bale, and baskets of red grapes here and there, the bride came back to get nuts to roast for the smell. Cranberry bread loaves ready to serve with nut and honey rolls were another touch of the deep reds and wine colors, rather than orangy fall things. Two weeks later they were back with phone pics. Your colors could easily support the cider someone suggested, and a few pitchers or punchbowls of sangria or mulled wine they had around their mostly barbecue or cheese dishes, 2 stations, were festive. Hubbard squash go from baseball size to watermelon sizes and distinctive shapes.White pumpkins 2
    This would be about a foot long hubbard.

    Something else I associate with fall barbecue, made in advance in the oven, neater to serve, is stuffing made with pulled pork and sauce, and onion and nuts of course.

    Do farms get requests like that for weddings often?

    We are mostly not what people call a farm as agricultural land. We mostly supply 2 co-ops, to sell, rather than sell directly, maple syrup, blue berries, raspberries, strawberries, summer and fall apples , hazelnuts, and a few acres of summer truck garden, and we have field grown flowers, and perennials, some pick your own or we supply, mostly to inns. Except berry and apple season we do not have any ads , just a farmstand. And just from locals , we get 20- 40 requests in a year for a lot of something. Fall a year ago someone wanted tulips, and climbing roses, a spring wedding at a nearby in an area where a florist would charge an arm and a led for hundreds of cut tulips. And with a second wedding in the family later in the summer, climbing roses on arbors, taken to them grown. We have a huge number of flowering bushes, and I put signs up years back. Now some local inns and word of mouth weddings, people will ask for 10-20 bushels of cut boughs, or flowering almond, or Japanese cherries. But I am a PT and nurse, which I do half time, and I am the family farmer. With kids, and mostly local mothers and teens. We are likely not representative of most farms who are more large single crop and market price oriented. If someone wants something, we will do it. Sometimes teachers ask us to do projects on the schools ( volunteer) and it will lead to a flurry of requests. In recent years we have done nunerous weddings on our property, since my grandma married again and moved to Labrador, and She and my mom have done many family and friend weddings. 150-250 are easy physically if the weather cooperates. But we do not do commercial, and turn away 20-30 requests a year. Usuallyy someone who was a guest, and does not know that between friends and family is a gift. To do a serious farm and wedding business is not a casual extra job. Hubby works for a paycheck, and his hobby is woodworking. And we have kids. Maybe real farms do have more, but people just stip by or get referred. I grew up in this cluster of little rural towns, so when someone calls with a request, it is a referral. Mostly a local in cook will call, can you give my strawberries for a 200 person wedding. Hard to answer as a representative farmer.

    Wow! Cool! That is super fascinating. Near me I have a farm called Underwood Family Farms. They have two locations and tons of people come and visit to pick-their-own. They continue to expand, but still stay in their local areas. I’ll be interested to see how much ($$$$$ lol) they cost.

    Perfect pumpkins go for more for the holiday. Hubbard Squash go normal food prices, much cheaper, as long as you do not mention decorations. 🙂
