I love the fall! It’s such a great time to get married.
The heat cools off and there’s a crispness in the air.
You don’t have to worry about sweating into your wedding outfit. Or your makeup sliding off your face.
Or having to eat and drink only light things.
It’s a great in-between time where you’re not cold or hot.
So, it’s understandably a popular time of year to get married.
And it’s only getting more and more popular!
Which means… gone are the days when fall used to be a more budget friendly time of year to get married.
But, don’t worry! Here are 3 easy tips you can use to save money on your fall wedding.
3 Easy Budget Friendly Fall Wedding Tips
Tip #1 – Use mother nature to the fullest
One could say that fall is the prettiest time of year. The colors are changing and with it beauty abounds.
And an easy way to save money is to use all that beautiful nature in your wedding.
So, pick a backdrop of colored trees for your ceremony.
Or put all those fallen leaves to good use in your wedding decor and centerpieces.
You can use colorful pumpkins, gourds, apples and pears in your design (and your meal).
There is so much natural beauty in the fall and using it will not only save you money, but make your wedding oh so stunning.
Tip #2 – Drink to the season
Fall is synonymous with both Oktoberfest and harvest, so celebrate both! Ditch the hard liquor and have an array of beer and wine instead.
Pick different varieties for your guests to try. This will give them a fun and new experience.
You could even do a whole beer or wine tasting at your wedding!
Hand picking your selections will make your wedding personal. And sticking to select beers and wines will help save you money too.
Tip #3 – Go for comfort
The fall season is also all about comfort.
It’s when you start reaching for a blanket and a cup of tea. It’s also when you have Thanksgiving meals with family and Halloween candy.
So, bring that comfort into your wedding meal with comfort food.
That could be BBQ, tacos, burgers, pizza, pasta, fried chicken, dumplings or whatever your comfort food is.
Choose foods that warm the belly and make you smile.
And you’ll definitely be smiling because not only will it be yummy, but you’ll save money too.
Everyone loves a fall wedding. But, don’t let the popularity of the season scare you!
You can still have a great wedding on a small budget.
Use these 3 budget friendly fall wedding tips and you’ll not only save money, but love your wedding too.
