Fall is one of the best seasons for the activity-minded. From apple picking to crafting to wandering through pumpkin patches and labyrinths, there are plenty of fall activities you can incorporate into your wedding day.
Have you ever visited an apple orchard in the fall season to pick apples? If so, you can probably remember how beautiful the setting was. If you're looking for an outdoor ceremony spot, check out your local apple orchards and find a place to exchange your wedding vows under the canopy of fruit. Greet guests with sparkling cider and use apples to guide your wedding theme.
'Tis the season for crafting. Making fall foliage crafts are some of our favorite memories of the season. You might consider using pressed greenery and flowers for your escort card display or on your wedding invitations.
Pies, pumpkin breads, ginger scones, and zucchini muffins are just a few of the season's best baked goods. Set up a dessert display at your wedding that falls in with the baked goods theme, or host a potluck brunch the day after where guests can bring along their favorite fall treats.
If you're celebrating your wedding at a working farm or ranch, hay rides during cocktail hour are a fun and festive way to get guests from one area of the property to another.
Roasted squash and pumpkin should make it onto your wedding menu if you're a big fan of this fall activity. Chat with your catering team about creative ways to work in some of your favorite fall foods.
Design a Labyrinth
Pumpkin patches often have corn mazes or labyrinths set up to keep active kids occupied, but there's no reason this can't be an activity for adults too. Work with your floral team to create a labyrinth with fresh flowers or greenery that's bound to be the talk of cocktail hour.
Set Up Picnics
Picnics are popular year-round, but they're the best in fall weather. Throw a few picnic blankets, poufs, and pillows on the grassy lawn during cocktail hour and set up spreads of champagne and snacks for lounging guests. It's sure to be a cozy, autumnal hit.
