As the fall makes its debut with cooler temperatures and richer colors, what better idea than a rustic harvest-themed wedding! The rustic venue holds infinite possibilities for breathtaking photos and endless DIY details like painted mason jars, flower arrangements, burlap, wooden signs, romantic string lights, etc…
The comforting autumn colors range from muted shades of brown combined with creamy blush and soft ivory, to pops of dark red, yellow and orange to create a balanced palette that complements the landscape’s changing leaves.
Let the season have a say when it comes to picking a flower arrangement to hold for your walk down the aisle. Whether choosing based on color (reds, yellows, oranges, and purples are especially festive in the fall), or in-season availability (chrysanthemums, anemones, calla lilies and asters are all fall flowers), seasonal bouquets can help tie your wedding together.
Mixed greenery makes a statement in the bridal bouquet, reappearing in the centerpieces in a lush arrangement.
Burlap, tactile and highly textured, can be used for everything from table runners or placemats, wrapping mason jars and even invitations. Add lace and pearls for an elegant touch to the otherwise rustic harvest theme. Incorporate touches of lace in your tablescape by lining menus with lace trim or by wrapping your utensils with lace ribbon.
The classic texture of wood is easy to incorporate by decorating the space with crates and barrels spilling over with colorful flowers or gourds and other autumn produce like apples, corn, pumpkins, and wheat bundles, as the perfect decorative harvest accents to symbolize the abundance and good fortune of the union.
Wood slices can be used as cake stands, centerpieces or signs.
And what can be more romantic than a big bonfire after-party, with log stools or hay bales where the guests can make smores and the newlyweds can kiss as their hearts desire.
Sharing a love that's “sweeter than honey” is cause for celebration. Your guests will love every part of your wedding, especially the personalized jar of wildflower honey you'll send them home with, a local and allergen-free party favor that they will get to enjoy long after the wedding day.
And last but not least, adorn yourself and your bridesmaids with harvest-themed jewelry to fit right in this idyllic setting. ADORA's new "Ever After" Collection has a variety of jewelry designs to choose from, which along with the memories will be cherished by your friends for a long time to come.
