Autumn. We all love it for the pumpkin spiced lattes, the pumpkin picking, and the sweater-and-boots-weather. Not too chilly, but just crisp enough to make us think of wood fires and candle light. But not many of us immediately think wedding season when the temperatures start to drop.

I’m here to give you six reasons our collective favorite cosy season could also be your best bet for your wedding. From cost to color palette to accessories, I know a lot of planning brides will be penciling in October and November fall wedding dates for 2015!

Stunning Wedding Arches: How to DIY or Buy Your Own

Stunning Wedding Arch

Eric Ronald Photography

There are so many details that go into planning a memorable wedding. We are here to remind you of something that will make your ceremony beautiful and unforgettable: a gorgeous wedding arch of course! As you walk down the aisle you will love having gorgeous flowers or flowing cloth and rustic wood to frame your memorable moment. It will be a little taste of your style that will stand out in photos for years to come.

Once you have decided that you would like a wedding arch to be a part of your ceremony, you need to figure out exactly how to get one. There are several options, one is to purchase a wedding arch and then decorate it yourself with flowers. You can also rent a wedding arch (often times from the place you’re renting tables and chairs) and you or your florist can decorate it.  Some venues will already have an arch on their property that you can decorate yourself, which will really save you money. Remember though, if you do purchase your own arch you can put it in your backyard later as a constant reminder of your incredibly special big day!

To get a look like the one pictured above you can purchase a metal arch for around $85.00. Then either you or your florist can cover it in beautiful white, pink, and red roses (with a few spray painted gold). You can also rent a metal arch from a rental company for around $40, and decorate it yourself, creating a beautiful fall look while staying within your budget!
