Having a fall wedding but want to stay away from the full-on rustic look, dark colors and heavy fabrics? How romantic!
We’ve noticed that fall weddings are getting softer – in colors, fabrics, styles and even flowers. And we love the look so much.
Here are some of our ideas for a romantic fall wedding look that’s perfectly you.
First, the colors. Light mocha brown. Dusty pinks. Deep creams. Delicate taupes. A touch of light orange. These are a far cry from the bold jewel tones and deep browns you usually see in an autumn wedding.
Display these colors in lighter, ruffled fabric for your dress. No velvets, no heavy satins, no taffeta. Give bridesmaids a color palette and have them mix it up with their own style for dresses and shoes. For an elegant pop of color, wear gold or taupe shoes with soft ribbons in a beautiful shade of fall. Tell the guys to forget the tuxes – crisp linen suits are more in keeping with your day.
Also choose flowers in softer fall colors, like lighter shades of orange, brown and gold. Make your natural accents like seed pods, berries and foliage stand out with smaller bouquets. And top your wedding cake with a few pretty fall posies like asters or dahlias.
Set the tone for the celebration with the perfect invitation. Our Enchanted Garden Invitation will welcome guests with warm papers and a unique, die-cut wrap.
Then get creative. A wooden box or a handmade velvet pumpkin to display your rings will be the perfect finishing touch.

Coziness, warmth, beauty, sparkle – they’re what winter weddings are all about. How do you make those wintry dreams come true? Here’s some great advice about
You know on those murder mystery shows where the tiniest bit of evidence cracks the case? They’re a great example of how the smallest details add up to a “killer” party!
Whatever your Halloween party theme, add in some of these ideas for Halloween party details to die for.
Creepy candy bar
Fill vintage jars and vases with sweets that get creepy when you label them in a fun way. Big gumballs can be eyeballs (or better yet, find eyeball design gumballs). Black jelly beans can be bat livers. White meringue candy becomes ghost droppings. Gummy worms can be zombie guts.
Remove all the labels from your wine bottles and replace them with antique-looking labels with icky titles for the contents. Red wine can be Bat’s Blood. White wine can be Werewolf Poison. Others can be Evil Spirits, Truth Serum, Ghost Blood and Witches’ Brew.
Freeze plastic spiders, bugs and eyeballs in ice cubes to add a yucky touch to drinks. Fill a latex glove with water and freeze it, too, and add the frozen “hand” to a bowl of red punch.
Add little things to your décor that will make guests jump. Add a small red candle to the top of white pillar candles. The red wax will drip down in bloody flames. Add glass eyeballs to the center of the flowers in your creepy centerpiece. Add fake blood fingerprints to all your dishes and glasses. Print out vintage photos on sheer paper and cover your mirrors and framed photos with them.
Ask a friend to hide out and do behind-the-scenes, our-of-sight scary stuff for you like flicker the lights periodically, turn on a fan to suddenly blow out candles, open a creaky door, stomp up and down the attic or basement stairs, and play spooky music that comes out of “nowhere.”
Everyone will be talking about your “killer” party details until next Halloween.
