Any time is perfect for love or a wedding, but there’s something very special about an autumn wedding, especially in October. October is the third most popular month for weddings, and why not? It’s cooler outside, so you can wear formal attire without sweating, the leaves are turning beautiful hues, and there’s magic and romance in the crisp, cool air. It’s not too cold, and it’s not hot. In short, October is the perfect month to say I do and enjoy some chocolate too.
October Wedding Ideas
There are many fun ways to celebrate your nuptials and incorporate the magic of fall and October into the mix, and we have a few ideas:
Add pumpkins of various sizes to table arrangements along the aisles or the wedding arch. Maybe a bale of hay with some pumpkins on top.
You can also include other fall harvest types of fruits or vegetables like apples of colorful Indian corn to a table arrangement, the end of the aisle, or any other place that adds a fall touch to the wedding or reception.
Add carved or monogrammed pumpkins with your initials, married names, wedding dates, or other fun sayings or well wishes.
Add Chocolate, Love
Chocolate, the perfect love and comfort food, is a delicious addition and accompaniment to any wedding. Pumpkin-flavored chocolates are to accentuate the fall wedding. Chocolate has long been considered an aphrodisiac or a romantic. Valentine’s Day and weddings are associated with chocolate. Who can forget the opulent chocolate fountain?
Fall Flower Arrangements
In addition to orange, red, and yellow colored flowers, add dry pods, branches, and other fall colors and elements to your flower arrangements. Autumnal hydrangea, Fall Peony, zinnias, and eucalyptus make great fall flowers or elements and create something distinct.
A Fall Altar
You can spruce up the altar with an arch adorned with fall colors–orange, yellow, red, and brown. Add flowers that highlight the changing colors of the leaves and take the fall wedding theme to a new high.
Flower-Pressed Escort Cards
Continuing the fall theme, you can press small flowers or plants onto the escort cards and add a touch of class by using calligraphy, autumn-colored card stock, or inks.
Dish Up Fall
Add fall colors, flowers, and dried decorative plant pods or ornate branches to dish and table arrangements or around bowls containing Sconza’s Jordan Almonds.
Add chrysanthemums, pansies, celosias, crotons, and sunflowers to the bride’s bouquet of roses, and use autumn colors to make a bold statement.
Offer your guests blankets or wraps in fall colors to keep them warm, cozy, and enjoying the crisp air in style and comfort.
Serve Up Warm Sensations
Add hot cider, hot chocolate, or even pumpkin-flavored coffee drinks to magnify the warm fall theme and harvest. Serve these autumn favorites with cinnamon sticks, nutmeg, pumpkin-flavored sweeteners, and maple syrup.
A Piece Of Cake
Consider adding fall themes or flowers to the wedding cake and candies like Jordan Almonds or sprinkling them around the cake.
Groomsmen and bridesmaids can carry the fall theme throughout the ceremony and beyond by donning fall colors–burgundy dresses, apricot suits, fall-colored ties, etc.
Include Sconza’s delicious Jordan Almonds, the wedding classic, in dishes, on the wedding cake, or in the traditional Bombonieres.
