Tips for Fall Weddings

fall wedding invitation

Fall is a wonderful time of year for a wedding. Fall temperatures are cool and weather is good. When planning fall weddings there are a few things you should keep in mind. When choosing the colors for your wedding, stick to deep, rich colors rather than muted or pastels. Deep colors look perfect against an autumn background. Consider choosing a natural palette that goes with almost any other burst of color.

You can often more easily locate a venue in the fall. There are some stunning locations to choose from when considering fall weddings. Outdoor weddings are particularly romantic in the autumn. The fall colors are abundant, giving a rich appeal to the background. Keep in mind that the temperatures can still be quite warm. Provide coordinating pashmina shawls to the bridesmaids as stylish evening wraps.

Your bridesmaids don’t need to wear heavy fabrics and the groomsmen needn’t wear dark suits. Choose the materials and colors that you prefer, regardless of the season. Choose an interesting bright color to add highlight to the earthy tones. Some good choices include mango, gold, navy, chocolate, and hot pink. Almost any color that you choose will mix well with the neutral tones of fall.

Outdoor weddings can be beautiful in the autumn. Fall weddings offer the best of both worlds. If possible, choose a venue that offers a patio or garden setting. Guests can stroll outdoors or may stay inside if they prefer. The crisp evenings offer a nice temperature comfort level. You’ll also have plenty of choices for décor. The tones of autumn can be used in many natural textures to create a warm, earthy effect.

An autumn wedding is often easier to plan when time is short. Many venues that are booked up in the summer months may be available in the fall. There is also often better availability for churches. This means that you may have the ability to get the church and venue that you prefer.

Selecting Your Custom Wedding Stamps

custom wedding stamps

Why would you consider using custom wedding stamps? There are many reasons that these can be of tremendous benefit to you. For one thing, they are a good way to actually reduce the cost of your wedding stationery. This is because you could use the simplest and plainest invitations and envelopes when relying on custom wedding stamps that feature your engagement or wedding photos.

There are more than just a few types available and they can use custom art and images, be selected to match the style or theme of your wedding event, or even be relied on to serve as the focal point of the mailing.

Need an example? Let’s say that you have a very basic invitation style. For our example we’ll say that you have a cream colored card stock and matching envelopes. You have opted for a charcoal grey ink, and this leaves things a bit on the “plain” side. You decide to liven up the envelopes using custom wedding stamps. The main envelope has a stamp with your engagement photograph on it in full color. The RSVP envelope has a stamp that matches the color scheme you have selected for the wedding décor. You also opt to order stamps for your bridal shower invitations too, and these are in the same hues and shades as the RSVP card stamps.

You like the looks of this so much that you decide to stick with the more basic stationery for the thank you cards, and you have one of your favorite wedding photographs printed on the custom stamps.

Choosing this route would allow you to create a tremendously personalized set of wedding oriented stationery, and all without breaking the bank. People would probably opt to keep your mailings and even the envelopes as souvenirs of a memorable event.
