The Fall Wedding Season
Updated: Sep 27
Fall weddings emulate the feeling of coziness. There's something about Fall that makes you want to wrap yourself in a cozy blanket, linger by a fire and grab a cup of something hot.
You can picture the mood of a Fall wedding. The late afternoon backdrop of trees is drenched in a sea of orange and yellow. The sky fills with color as the sun kisses the horizon and quickly turns to dusk. There's a chill in the air and the days are growing shorter. Guests are adorned in dark, moody colors. Bouquets are designed with hints of soft peaches, oranges, deep blues and purples. The backdrop of garden lights and firepits ready for the late night wedding s'mores help extend the evening festivities. Our taste buds welcome menus flavored with pumpkin, apple, chai and maple.
Fall has always been a popular season to exchange vows and this year September and October are busy months for florists. According to The Knot, traditionally the most popular wedding month is October, accounting for about 20% of weddings. Coming in second is September (about 15%), June with about 10%. July and August are tied at 9% and May and November are tied at 8%.
While October is still the most popular wedding month, September is proving to be catching up in 2023. Why? The main reason is September has five Saturdays this year and October has four. You can guess the most popular date this year - 9/23/23. Last year the most popular wedding date was 10/22/22.
Fall has become a favorite season, not only because of the colors available, but also the weather is cooler and invites us outdoors. There are so many palettes that complement the moods of fall. The list is endless, but here are a few to consider: deep burgundy, burnt orange, navy, emerald, mustard, dusty rose and apricot and light teal. Whatever your style or design choices, Fall weddings recharge our creativity with endless options.
"Fall has always been my favorite season. The time when everything bursts
with its beauty, as if nature had been saving up all year for the grand finale."
