Perfect Fall Color Schemes

It is now officially fall! That means we are approaching cooler weather, the changing of the leaves, and more importantly, the introduction of new fall colors. Not only do these color schemes work great for weddings, but you can incorporate them in your wardrobe, home decorations, crafts, or even your nail polish color.

While this may seem like a random combination, the opposite colors purple and yellow are actually quite striking together and makes for a wonderful contrast in photos!







Burgundy and Gold685a26fa082a6455da5b38c82ee7e450

These are the classic colors associated with fall because they are reflected in the changing colors of the leaves. Burgundy is a very versatile color because there are many shades offered. You can choose a deeper hue that is richer and darker or select something that is more closely related to crimson or red.





Magenta, Navy, and Gold8c282db2b351aecbe320b72eb2445ca2

As you can see, darker yellows are a consistent fall choice and are usually paired with a warmer color like purple, burgundy, or in this case, magenta! This color scheme is great for the funky and adventurous at height because it introduces something new to expected fall colors. Whether you want to use the magenta as an accent or as the main color, you will love this unique combination!

Whimsical Wedding Day Signs

A big trend in wedding decorations is the use of whimsical signs. These can feature sweet phrases, poems, or Bible verses, as well as wedding dinner menus and a schedule of wedding day events. The signs are a super easy way to fill empty spaces around your reception hall, ceremony site, or outdoor areas and can be very informative to your guest. You can even have a great time making the signs homemade! Have a craft party with your bridesmaids and have each girl make a different sign. In one night you will have made a large amount of decorations and then you can all compare ideas and, of course, see whose is the best!

Below are some different examples of the types of signs that have been used in real weddings before. You can make or buy signs to look exactly like these or just use them as inspiration for your own unique ideas. The signs you make should express the formality, theme, and color scheme of your wedding but also embody who you and your groom are as a couple. No sense making a sign with a quote that neither of you identify with!

The First Look: A romantic moment or ceremony spoiler?

There are always new ideas being brought into the traditional wedding ceremony. Going into your wedding day, every bride knows the first time seeing groom will be an experience of a lifetime. One of the more recent ideas for a wedding ceremony is a first look: an experience that happens before the walk down the isle. The first look can be a very intimate moment that only the bride and groom can experience. If photographers are around, then they will be able to capture the special moment with photos that can be cherished forever. These are some pros and cons to this first look:


  • It helps calm the butterflies before the big moment.
  • There can be great photo opportunities.
  • If you have an evening wedding, it is a great way to utilize the lighting while you still have it.
  • You can have it in a cute and memorable location.
  • You can go ahead and take the pictures of the two of you before the wedding, saving time for more photos and unique shots afterwards.

Getting Creative With Your Wedding Food!

Who says that you cannot play with your food? A recent trend occurring at weddings is the idea of a food bar in replacement of or in addition to a cocktail bar. With a designated theme, guests can create different food items that are good and deliciously fun for wedding guests of all ages to enjoy!

tkrco11fw_juliajacob15Make your food bar fun!

  • If you are having an outdoor wedding with a reception that is still occurring after dark, a great idea would be to have a s’mores bar. You can set out different candy bars, marshmallows, and graham crackers where guests can create their ideal after dinner treat.
  • A popcorn bar is another excellent snack idea. The popcorn can be placed in decorative baskets or bins in which guests can then take a bowl and scoop as much as they desire. Additional seasonings and spices can be optional for guests who want to play with different popcorn flavors.
  • If feasible, an ice cream sundae bar would be a fun dessert option for guests. By keeping the ice cream cold, a variety of toppings could be set out for guests with a super sweet tooth!
  • Dessert bars are excellent ideas for guests to munch on. The bar can consist of various cookies, brownies, and any other finger desserts that you as the bride want on there. To get even more creative you could provide milk, chocolate milk, and water to wash them all down.

  • If you are stressing out about the meal provided at the wedding, perhaps consider using a food bar to make things less stressful and more fun for guests and you!
  • A taco bar is a great idea, guests can create their own meal so they will be happy with what they are eating, and it alleviates the stress on you because you only worry about how you are going to make your tacos delicious
  • Some other food bar ideas:
    • BBQ themed food bar
    • Pasta bar
    • Salad bar
    • Hamburgers and hotdogs
    • Deli sandwiches
