Official Opinions: Fall Wedding What-Ifs

I always appreciate it when someone breaks the norm. There are a couple of different aspects to doing this successfully. First, it takes a bold, confident person to do so. Secondly, it has to be creative. Putting together something that becomes a conversation piece, a great memory, is key. What better place to do that than at a wedding? Although the current weather may not suggest it, fall is upon us. Here are a few ideas that I’ve come up with for those of you having a fall wedding that differ from traditional wedding standards.

1. Throw leaves, not rice, at the end of the wedding. It’s fall. And we live in the Midwest. It shouldn’t be too hard to find a usable pile of leaves to throw around. Not only is it fun, but throwing the leaves in the air can also bring back childhood memories for both the newlywed couple and the guests. It’s a great way to say you’re a “green” couple too. Hooray recycling! Plus, throwing leaves, not food, into the air will be sure to keep the birds away.

2. Present the rings in a jack-o-lantern, not on a pillow. Let’s face it, in October, everyone is thinking about Halloween. Hell, drugstores have been promoting the holiday for the past two months already. Be as creative as you want with the design too. It doesn’t need to be the generic triangle eyes and nose with a smile. Carve something out that has meaning to the both of you. How great would your rings look being presented in a pumpkin with a Chicago Bears logo carved out of it? (at least the groom would appreciate it) The possibilities are endless, assuming you’ve got a pumpkin that can handle what you put on it.

3. Use fall colors in the wedding party’s outfits, even the bride’s dress. It may be hard to believe, but there are a few shades of brown, yellow and orange (did you know orange is just a shade of brown?) that can be absolutely stunning together. Just trust me on that. Take the opportunity to not only stand out from the typical wedding attire, but look damn good while doing so. I’m sure that most people would never risk it, but if successfully pulled off, you’ll have one of the best looking groups of bridesmaids and groomsmen in town.

Three suggestions, three different ways to go about making your wedding stand out from the others. For those getting married, it will already be the most memorable day of your life, so take the time and effort to make it just as memorable for the guests that have come to show their love for you.
