Hello peachies! We’re super excited to introduce the fourth feature in our autumn wedding series! Last time we shared our tips for the perfect woodland wedding, 15 gorgeous autumn bouquets and our obsession with apples. Today we’re going to break it down further and focus on the smaller details like leaves and foliage!
There’s nothing we love more about autumn than watching the leaves turn colors. Any wedding in August, September or October wouldn’t be complete without some gorgeous leaves whether they’re red, orange, yellow or spray paint gold! There’s no set rule about the amount of leaves you need to use so go with what feels right to you! You may want to tuck a leaf into the groom’s boutonniere or the bride’s bouquet or even hang rows and rows of spray painted leaves across the reception room. From getting ready to cutting the cake, we’ve got 12 easy ways to mix leaves and foliage into your autumn wedding!
Slowly get your guests excited about your fall wedding with simple, but sophisticated invitations bordered by falling leaves.
If you’re not looking to keep things sweet then you may want to tuck a leaf or two into the groom’s boutonniere.
