Summer is over and we have entered a whole new wedding season… Fall Weddings! It’s the time of year for warm colors, cool nights and savory treats. We at Bridal Hot List are excited for the trends and festivities of fall and decided to explore some exciting fall venue options!
A vineyard is a beautiful option for a fall wedding. The leaves are turning vibrant shades of orange, brown, rust, red and every other shade of autumn. Whether you want an indoor ceremony, outdoor or combination of both most vineyards provide multiple venue options. Have your ceremony just before sunset overlooking gorgeous scenery and providing romantic photo opportunities. Move indoors for the reception, lit by white string lights and sip on the vineyards specialty wines.
If you live in an area of the United States whose reputation for fall weather is not ideal, a destination wedding may be the option for you. Though fall weather is often brisk in the states, in many other parts of the world the weather is still amazing. Travel to a tropical location for a wedding on the beach or hop over the pond to Europe for a Tuscan villa wedding. Destination weddings are always an intimate option for couples who want to share the day with their closest family and friends.
Rustic Outdoor/Indoor Wedding
Early fall is the opportune time for rustic weddings. As the weather cools and the colors change into warmer shades it becomes the perfect setting for a barn or ranch wedding. Barn and ranch venues are gaining popularity and vintage weddings are on the rise. Now more than ever vendors are offering vintage furniture rentals and decorative accents like mason jars or vintage candelabras. Have your wedding in a quaint barn romantically lit by candles. Add a large vintage chandelier in the center of the reception for that perfect wow factor.
As the seasons change and holidays approach there is no place that embodies the spirit of fall like New England. If you love fall because of the changing of the leaves and crisp weather, then host your wedding at a lodge in Vermont. You can also surround yourself in the true fall landscape at a bed and breakfast in Connecticut or at a scenic mountain resort in upstate New York. The brick and brownstone architecture is stunning and will create a picturesque getaway for your special day.
Before winter comes and the weather outside is too cold and rainy for an outdoor wedding, take advantage of the last of the warm days and cool nights. A park is a great outdoor location to have a small and intimate ceremony. Just before the last leaves fall from the trees, say I do under the multi-colored foliage in the fall breeze. For example, hold your wedding at a hotel in Yosemite National Park where you are surrounded by amazing landscapes, the epitome of fall beauty.
