How To Plan The Perfect Fall Wedding On The East Coast
Planning a wedding is by no means a small task. In fact, planning the perfect wedding might just seem unobtainable, except that fall is here and the timing just does not get much better for a wedding on the east coast. The leaves are changing colors, and the weather is cooling off—it is a perfect time to get married. So, whether you want to get hitched in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or somewhere in between, here are some useful tips on how to plan the perfect fall wedding.
From your table centerpieces, to the bouquet, weddings in the fall are not meant to have themes from the spring, or any other season for that matter. In other words, you want the colors at your wedding to coincide with the colors of fall. Shades of brown, orange, yellow, and maybe even purple, will go great in your fall wedding. You may even think about incorporating other subtle fall elements, like pumpkin or squash.
Regardless of whether your wedding is in urban New York, or rural Pennsylvania, on even the warmest fall day you will want to have heating lamps and candles as your reception goes on into the evening. Some event staff, or even caterers will naturally take this precaution, but it is always a good idea to make sure your guests stay warm once the sun goes down.
As lovely as the fall season is, the weather is still quite unpredictable, and at the very least colder. For such reason, it is best to pick a date for your fall wedding that has proven historically to have the best weather of the season. While this method is by no means foolproof, it does however, present you with the best possible chance of avoiding rain and other unfavorable wedding weather. All you have to do is pick a given date in the past with the best record of clear skies, and then hope history repeats itself.
