No matter the season, there are last-minute details any bride shouldn't forget before her big day. However, there are extra special considerations brides have to think about specifically for fall weddings. So, you need to keep a few pointers in mind if you're going to be an autumn newlywed. Read on to find out the last-minute details fall brides always seem to forget.
1. Outdoor Wedding Upkeep
Autumn can be perfect for hosting an outdoor wedding ceremony or reception. However, your outdoor location may also need a lot of upkeep depending on where you have it. Make sure to check in with your venue that pathways and your main ground area will be cleared of any leaves before your special day.
2. Have A Shawl Handy
As we all know, fall weather can be seriously unpredictable. It's always smart to have a shawl handy on your wedding day if your dress is sleeveless. You can quickly slip it on in-between photos or at you reception if you start to get chilly.
3. How The Weather Affects Traffic
Since the fall weather is unpredictable, it's also smart to keep tabs on how the weather may affect the traffic on roads. Check in with your important guests on your wedding morning to see if they'll have any delays on their way to your ceremony. You definitely don't want them to miss a single moment!
4. Score Off-Season Deals
It's no secret that summertime weddings are super popular. With that said, you may be able to score some off-season deals with any vendors that you book. So, make sure to take it a step further when you discuss prices with your vendors.
5. Add Fall Decor
You can make it a note to find ways to add fall foilage to your wedding day aesthetic. You can choose last minute additions to your bouquet or add in fall decor pieces at your venue location. Any seasonal touches that you may add can be so beautiful.
6. Enhance Your Skincare Routine
We all lose our summertime glow once we hit the middle of fall. With that said, you may want to pay extra attention to your skincare routine to prepare for your autumn wedding. It's also smart to book an appointment for a facial before your big day so that you can guarantee the healthiest skin on your wedding day.
7. Take Advantage Of Natural Backgrounds
Last but not least, have your photographers take advantage of the fall foilage when they take your pictures. You can create some of the most beautiful wedding photos by keeping this in mind. They'll definitely stand out from every other wedding photo you've ever seen.
