Summer’s Over – Are Outdoor Weddings Over Too?

Outdoor weddings in Sevierville are a wonderful idea for couples who love being surrounded by nature’s finest beauties. However, as soon as September kicks in, everyone thinks outdoor fun is over.

That’s not necessarily the case. In fact, there are a lot of reasons to love the idea of having a fall outdoor wedding. Following, we have gathered some of the best tips regarding this – so read on and find out more.

  • Include pumpkins in your wedding décor. Of course, this doesn’t mean you have to decorate your entire wedding with Jack o Lanterns (although that IS an option). You can really create amazing décor with small and large pumpkins, both for the wedding ceremony and for the wedding reception as well. Even a couple of simple pumpkins and a flower arrangement at the entrance in your wedding reception space will make it feel more suitable for fall!
  • Make sure you have a plan B. Unfortunately, weather cannot be predicted with a lot of time in advance (i.e. when you book the venue) – and it can definitely not be controlled or planned either. What you can do is plan for the worst case scenario (rain or a cool day, for instance). Bringing in a wedding tent, heaters, and even blankets for people to get cozy are all great ideas for a fall outdoor wedding.
  • Make the most out of the foliage. Skip the rice and ask your guests to toss golden leaves at you as you make your ceremony exit. Include burgundy foliage in greenery arrangements. Make this wedding décor suit the season outside by incorporating the stunning colors of the fall foliage – guests will absolutely love it!
  • Wear boots instead of high heels. Fall will provide you with the perfect temperatures to add a unique touch to your bridal look: boots. They could be cowboy boots for a country chic wedding, they could be fancy boots for an elegant evening, or, why not, they could be biker boots for a bride who wants to let her personality shine. Either way, these are an amazingly comfortable option that will keep you warm throughout the entire wedding day – outdoor or not.
