Don’t plan an Ordinary Fall Wedding, Create an EXTRAORDINARY Fall Wedding Day!
With Elegant Whims.
I have always loved “Fall” it is my favorite season. The sound of rustling leaves on an evening walk. The smell of baked apples, applesauce and apple pies emanating from my kitchen. Warm sweaters and Hot Apple Cider (yup I love Apples). All these changes tell me it is time for fires in the fireplace and Football on Sunday afternoon, Monday, Thursday…..O.K. That’s a different Blog.
As a Wedding and Event Planner, we are seeing an increase in Fall Weddings. There is beauty is every season, and it is different for each couple. At Elegant Whims we love the challenge of designing and thinking outside the box, making your wedding memorable and one that will stand out in your guest minds for years to come.
Enjoy our Blog this week, as always, a big thank you to Meredith for her extraordinary writing skills!

Fall weddings are my favorite.
Actually anything having to do with Autumn is my favorite.
I’m a sucker for sweaters, and boots, and scarves, and apple cider, and bonfires and anything else that has to do with the season.
The danger with fall weddings? Just as with summer weddings it is easy to pick, over used colors and themes.
Overused: Orange/brown. Everyone loves the warm orange coupled with a crisp brown; but there are plenty of other options in the autumn color pallet.
Underused: Plumb, Green, dark mustard, and blue. Any combo of these four colors go well together and give your wedding the fresh crisp look you’re going for – without being reiterated at your guests next wedding.
Overused: Country Chic. Period. Barns are lovely, as are pumpkins, burlap, and leaves. Other options are available.
Underused: Flowers that bloom in the fall, but don’t aren’t in the “autumn colors” category necessarily, like Amaranths. This will add a crazy pop of color into the usual browns and reds, making it eye catching and memorable.
Different varieties of squash are also great options for an alternative to pumpkins.
That’s my two cents for the week!
Have a great Wednesday,
