September brides, rejoice! The month of your wedding is upon us (!) and as the temperature turns from too-damn-hot to perfectly-crisp, the weather for your wedding is looking good!

No wonder September is the third most popular wedding month — the changing of the seasons means inspired favors and decor (see below) and a romantic change of settings (all those red and yellow leaves!). Here’s everything you need to know about getting married this month:

Things To Do With 30-Days Left:

Programs, Rehearsal Dress, Bridesmaid Gifts, Makeup & Hair Trials, Escort Cards, Table Seating, Welcome Bags, Guest Favors, Write Toasts, Write Vows, Order Wedding Bands, Honeymoon Plans, Practice First Dance.

Fall Favors:

Tissue wrapped pears, burlap apple bags, leaf-shaped cookies, pumpkin jam, fall-colored candles (browns, reds, oranges, etc), seed packets.

Customized maple syrup jars, mini candied apples, leaf place card holders, wine cork candles, maple candies.

In Bloom This Month:

Bouquets with lisianthus — one of the many flowers blooming this month.

Our resident green thumb, Lauren Page of G Page, shared her favorite September flowers with us: Tuberose, Snowberry, Lisianthus, Freesia, Dahlias, Astilbe.
