Fall Wedding Inspiration

Driving through Green Bay the other day, I noticed the first leaves starting to change color in a sign that fall is on its way.  The changing leaves display such a beautiful assortment of colors, it's hard to not be inspired by their beauty. 
Since I'm feeling inspired, I decided to share some fall inspiration to all those considering a fall wedding.  And I must say, Green Bay is beautiful place to have a fall wedding!

Decor Idea: Ceiling Draping!

Looking for a way to add major drama to your wedding decor?  Consider draping the ceiling of your space with fabric.  Choose white fabric for a dreamy look, or choose colors that compliment and/or match your colors to add a punch of drama!

This idea is more costly, but for those who have the budget, the drama added to your space is well worth the cost!  For those who love the look of ceiling draping but have tighter budgets, consider the draped ceiling while minimizing other decor.  If you drape the ceiling with color, maybe you don't need colored table clothes or overlays and can settle for the white ones many venues provide.  Simply use drape the ceiling and use centerpieces as your main sources of color.

"GASP!"  White Bridesmaid Dresses?!
That's right, a new trend emerging is to have the bridesmaids wear white.

Many brides cringe at the thought of ANYONE else at their wedding wearing white, so for some, white bridesmaid dresses is not even a remote possibility. 

A bridal party in all white dresses does make for some amazing photo opportunities!

Wedding Trend: Bridesmaid Clutches intead of Bouquets?!

I LOVE this idea!  Instead of having your girls carry flowers, and having to stuff their essentials in their bras (hey, it really happens!), consider a clutch with flowers pinned to it!

Choose a clutch that compliments your wedding colors, then choose flowers to pin onto each clutch.  Your girls will love that they can keep their essentials with them and still look fab! 

For the flowers, you decide what kind of flowers to use.  You can even choose real OR artificial flowers.  If you find artificial flowers you love, they will last all night...and beyond....without wilting.  PLUS...this can serve as your gift to your bridesmaids too!!!!

So come on, are  you loving this trend too now?!
