Fall weddings have become more popular over the years, with nearly 40% of couples getting married during the autumn months. What is so appealing about September, October, and November? Here are just a few reasons why fall is the new hottest wedding season. 

Fall Colors

It’s no secret that fall foliage is incredibly beautiful. The deep reds, bright yellows, and burnt oranges of the changing leaves make for a stunning display — and if you have a fall wedding, this display can be the backdrop of all your wedding photos! 

Cooler Temperatures

If you want to have an outdoor wedding, the fall season just might be the perfect time to do it. During these months, the weather is a lot cooler than it is in the summer, which means your guests won’t be sweaty and sunburned by the end of the day. 

Comfort Food

Let’s be honest: is there anything better than a tasty mug of hot apple cider or cocoa on a crisp fall day? A fall wedding is a perfect time to indulge in your favorite comfort foods and drinks. Give your guests a warm, homey feeling while they enjoy your reception. 

Cozy Textile Textures

One of the best ways to bring dynamics and variety to your wedding color palette is by playing with different textures and fabrics . The fall is the best time to do it! Add soft velvets to your chairs, fuzzy fleece in your lounge area, and a host of other cozy fabrics around your reception space. Not only will you diversify your decor, but your guests will also love the coziness.

More RSVPs

During the summertime, many people make the most of the sunshine. And, if they have kids, the time off of school. They take long vacations, visit family members, and generally pack their schedules to the point of bursting. As a result, summer couples may get more “regretfully declines” than they were hoping for! If you wait until fall, more folks will be home from vacation and ready to celebrate your special day.
