If fall is your favorite season, it’s no surprise that you would pick this time of year for your Toronto fall wedding. From warming scents like apple and pumpkin, to the beautiful changing leaves, to a fresh crispness in the air, there is so much to love about autumn. And while you may not want a full-fledged fall-themed wedding, it’s easy to find little ways to pay tribute to this beautiful time of year. Here are some simple–and subtle–ways you can incorporate the best of the season into your Toronto wedding::
Talk to your bartender about offering guests fall-inspired drinks like pumpkin ale, an Oktoberfest brew, and hard cider. If you’re looking for something elegant, consider cocktails like a pear sour, gingered apple sparkler, or a cranberry sangria. The possibilities are endless!
It’s easy to see why so many couples are choosing dessert stations instead of a traditional cake. Choose fall favorites like apple pie, pumpkin cheesecake, and berry cobbler–all served up in mini, individual-sized portions. If you are having a traditional cake, mini pumpkins make an adorable topper!
Figs, berry sprigs, and ornamental cabbage are all unique bouquet or centerpiece additions for a fall Toronto wedding. Floral options this time of year are particularly interesting and allow you to create a bouquet that is truly special and different than the more common styles used for most spring and summer weddings.
If you’re using candles, consider using some that put off a pleasant, mild apple scent. You can find them in white or another neutral color so they will complement nearly any color palette. Use pumpkin-scented room fresheners in the powder rooms and high traffic areas to ensure it smells fresh and welcoming throughout the evening.
You don’t have to opt for bright oranges, reds, and browns to show your love for fall at your Toronto wedding. Classic linen table runners with a gold trim or rustic, antique-style napkin holders add a touch of class. Pair gold accents like these with mini white pumpkins to get an understated, yet upscale feel.
Of course, if you are in love with the colors of autumn, you can always find a way to incorporate them into your wedding day look as well. From a sage-colored sash to pumpkin-hued bridesmaids dresses, there is always opportunity to have fun with color and make it a part of your big day.
