I’ve always wanted a fall wedding. I want to get married in October, but my fiance limited me to the first weekend because of baseball playoffs. A couple of people I know got married during the world series, with our home team playing, and lost half their guests to a tv.
When we finally chose a venue, they only had two Saturdays left, September 21, 2013 and October 26, 2013. The end of October is right in the middle of the world series, and while it seems silly, my fiance is a HUGE baseball fan, andhe told me he wouldn’t find a tv, but he’d make someone check their phone and update him all night with the scores. So, I decided on the 21st of September.
The only problem is that I just realized that fall doesn’t officially start until the 22. I want to use fall colors and use that as a theme, but is it silly to do so when it isn’t even fall yet? My family told me everyone associates fall with the start of school, and while I agree, it still makes me hesitant.
Is it okay to use fall colors even though it is not officially fall?

I’m a little confused by your question. You can use fall colors anytime, not just the first day of fall. No one is that nitpicky.

I’m not sure if you are serious or not, but if you are, you are way overthinking this one.
Of course you can use fall colors.

Since I posted that, I feel absolutely stupid. When I first thought about it, it bugged me because I honestly just wanted to do the end of October when the leaves are changing. By my house the leaves haven’t started to really change in September, and it can still be incredibly warm. It depends on the year.
The reason I got flustered by the seasons is that I have some people in my life who would comment on those things, andi t bugged me when I first heard it. Plus, I got the comment, well if it’s still summer than you should do July or August when it’s cheaper. That’s when I started overthinking things. Then as I was talking to my mom about it, I realized I could careless what anyone has to say. It doesn’t matter to me. It’s the first thing I’ve learned about planning, I can’t worry about any outside opinions.
Since I just joined these boards, I wasn’t sure how to delete it.
