Top Fall Wedding Ideas

By Charles Hopkins Published 12/14/2006 | Marriage

Anyone who has ever seen the conventional representation of a wedding in a book, magazine, TV show, movie, painting, etc will probably realize that no matter what medium one is viewing the representation of the wedding or regardless of the actual era in which the photograph, drawing or depiction of the wedding is derived from, it is nothing short of stunning how all these images of the wedding look identical. That is, the colors, the designs, the venue are all almost entirely the same. A wedding, like anything else, when victim of convention runs the risk of becoming both boring and generic in term of the visual allure and, needless to say, when something is boring it will hardly be memorable. Sure, the bride and groom will remember it, but it will pass of into obscurity in the minds of the guests. In order to make the wedding memorable, there must be some steps taken in order to make the wedding different or unique as opposed to suffering the convention of dull repetition.

When it comes to Fall wedding ideas it is a smart idea to use the beauty of the fall season and incorporate it into the actual wedding environment. The simplest way to do this is by holding the wedding outdoors and allowing the beauty and color of the fall season to be integrated into the wedding itself. Many times, the theme of the wedding will incorporate the vibrant earthly delights that the fall is known for. An example of this would be creating a wedding around the theme of a harvest, as the fall was a time of the year known for the harvesting of wheat and grains in many parts of the world. A wedding that is themed around praising the glory of the natural world would be an incredibly unique wedding idea. Now, this is not to suggest that one decides to base a wedding theme around primitive pagan Wicker Man style rituals (although there will be those people who find such an idea intriguing!), but a simple integration of the fall seasons symbolic history into the wedding can be appealing.

The fall is a wonderful and beautiful time of the year. The interior of any banquet hall will literally look the same all year round. While there are many beautiful looking banquet halls, there is no banquet hall that can ever match the beauty and glory of the natural world and all its seasons of the year.

Perhaps it would be wise to look up photographs of weddings from many years past in such parts of the world such as Wales where autumn harvests were popular themes for weddings. (This was because weddings were tied into the fertility rituals of a bountiful harvest) While one does not have to integrate concepts from earthly religions into the wedding itself, the backdrop of the historical environment the weddings took place in could be an interesting place to recreate. Hopefully this will provide food for thought for upcoming wedding plans.
