YOU won't be sweating through your ceremony.

4.
All the Apples

To go with those delicious drinks, think of the food frenzy. That’s right: apple everything. Donuts. Pie. Fritters. Bobbing. The options are endless.

5.
Earlier start times.

With the sun setting sooner, the festivities can fall in step, making it the perfect season for a brunch or early afternoon wedding.

6.
Leaves

 Use the effects Mother Nature’s most colorful season in your decor by opting for foliage-inspired florals.

7.
Beautiful outdoor venues.

Go green (or yellow, or red, or copper…) and hold the entire wedding outside.
