  • Wedding: September 2014 - Lodge

I completely understand wanting a fall wedding.  I originally wanted an Oct wedding but the venue we want doesn’t do weddings in Oct.  So I had to settle for a Sept wedding.  I was a little heartbroken but sometimes you have to sacrifice.

If I were you I’d pick colors that could be used for any season of wedding, like maybe eggplant and orange, yellow and pink, pink and orange etc.  This way you keep with the “fall” color scheme but it won’t seem too fall-ish.  I would decorate around that and use acorns as accents on the centerpieces.  Have a few scattered in the centerpiece flowers so they aren’t overwhelming and seem out of place but you will know what they are about.  Or in a tall vase fill with acorns and have them as filler for your tall flowers.  During your speeches you could mention how you met when your FI threw acorns at your head to get your attention.  Guests will then see the relation of acorns in the summer to your wedding.

If I were you I would keep the acorns to a minimum at the wedding.  You don’t want them to stand out too much and look out of place.  But I definitely think it could work.

First of all, I’m so sorry about your fiance, but it’s good that it sounds like he’s recovering well!! I think you can still incorporate acorns for a summer wedding and have it not be too fall-y–instead of a fall color scheme, think of a more “nature-y” color scheme: maybe like a sage green and brown? That way, it still has rich nature-y colors, but the light green is more reminiscent of summer than fall.

Here is an acorn bouquet that still seems summer-y and bright:

And green and brown acorn stamps:

I would say think about all the things you love about fall, then put a summery twist on them: you can still have leaves, etc., just summer leaves, more summer-in-nature, etc. It will still be absolutely beautiful I’m sure!!

Alot of times the fall theme is “harvest” and technically you do that in the summer too, so why not? You can use the same base colors, just change the complimentary colors. Some people use succulents as centrepeices, that would blend in, and you could use those acorns in smaller bowls(think votice size) next to them. That way you arent overusing those nuts.

  • Wedding: August 2012

I really wanted a fall wedding, inspired by trees just beginning to turn… but the only date I could pick (due to schooling issues) was in August. So I did as others above have mentioned… I picked a “fall” color scheme (Green orange and brown) and had manznita branch centerpieces with orange flowers in them symbolizing orange leaves… and it turned out really beautifuly! (If I do say so myself 😉 ) I wouldn’t be afraid of throwing a fall wedding in summer… most of it translates to the summer anyway, unless you want to put pumpkins everywhere… and even then, my biggest prob with that would be that they may be harder to find!

Have you considered a late August wedding? I dont know what part of the country you live in (or for that matter what country you live in in general), but some years the leaves begin turning in late August and people do become a little more receptive to the early fall vibe. 

P.S. … The acorn thing is adorable. I’m sensing major invite oppurtunities 😉
