Fall [Wedding] Favorites

Even though the cool weather does not seem to arrive to Charleston, SC or Columbia, SC until at least the end of October or November, that does not mean you cannot incorporate those rich color palettes or jewel tones into your designs. See below for some fun, simple ways to incorporate the Fall season into your design.

Florals are the perfect place to add festive fall colors! Add in a mixture of berries or seasonal leaves for an instant cooler look + design. Look for deeper, richer color tones rather than bright pinks or large palm leaves.


While a coffee station is a way to warm guests up for chillier temps, how about a hot chocolate bar?! Throw in some fun marshmallows, vanilla or cinnamon sticks and cute straws for a fun design display. Something that we LOVE incorporating into a fall dessert display - an interactive s’mores station! If your venue offers a fire pit or has an outdoor space to bring one in, what a better way to treat your guests to something other than cake!


As seen on Green Wedding Shoes, this centerpiece, with lots of foliage and leaves, paired with gold taper candles and Rose Gold flatware is the perfect nod to the Fall season. After all, Copper and Rose Gold are metallics we tend to use more during the fall and winter seasons.


Looking for a seasonal cocktail to serve your guests? How about a Spiced Rum Cider? Mix in apple slicers, cinnamon sticks, add in some nutmeg, or top with lemon bitters.


Not looking to give out traditional ‘wedding favors’ at the end of the night? How about having customized koozies available at the bar for guests to keep their drinks cool throughout the evening and then they can keep as a wedding favor! Practical, purposeful, and cost effective to buy in bulk! Make sure to save a few for yourself :)
