Halloween is right around the corner, this is such a fun time of the year. I love crisp cool air and warm sun. It’s fun to walk through all the colored leaves that have fallen off the tree’s and to admire the amazing palette of colors they make. We indulge in yummy treats like carmel apples and apple pie and enjoy the days before the coldness of winter arrives. Why not celebrate your wedding with a fall and Halloween theme? Each year you’ll have a fun time enjoying your anniversary and something as simple as the smell of apples baking in the oven could bring back memories of saying I do!
Here are some fun ideas to incorporate into your Halloween wedding planning. The items we’ve found below add a vintage feel to your wedding without making it feel like a kid’s party. Enjoy and happy planning!
We saw these hand-carved foam pumpkins and immediately had to share them with you. Order yours for your wedding day and place it on the head table as a fun center piece.
Add some fun to your bar decor at the wedding reception with this printable poster.
We love the rich, jewel tone colors in these save the date and wedding invitation cards.
Add some spooky signage with this wedding seating chart.
Have fun labeling your dessert table with these vintage inspired buffet picks.
Label your table numbers with these wickedly unique bat table cards.
When it comes to decorations for your wedding there are some ideas that show up and everyone jumps on board. Remember the mustache craze? Folks everywhere were posing with fake mustaches in their wedding photos. Then after awhile it becomes so over done that no one wants to do it. We found a trend online and were wondering if the same thing would happen to this one. The pinwheel has made a come back and we are seeing it in brides bouquets, on cakes and on quilts. What do you think? Love it or leave it? Is this something you would add to your day for a bit of whimsy or say pass and go the more traditional route? Let us know your thoughts!
Winter shouldn’t be off your list when choosing a wedding date. Some of the most lovely events take place indoors during the “off-season”. Stray away from the traditional winter themes of bright red roses and holiday themed decor. Instead create a winter wonderland and invite you guests to cozy up and stay awhile! Below are some winter wedding decorations to get you excited about cold weather weddings.
We love the wrap to keep this bride warm and all white bouquet of flowers is elegant.
Pine cones are an easy decor and way to bring the outdoors in, keep it fresh and modern with these unique wedding favors. Crystals lit up always add a lovely ambiance to a room.
Whether it’s cupcakes or a cake, keep it white and simple. Less in more.
Our favorite idea of them all, a hot chocolate bar! Have guests mix their own chocolate drink delight and maybe have a bottle of peppermint schnapps near by for the adult version! Spiked egg nog is another classic made modern with the recipe printed on the coasters for a unique take home gift.
Even if the weather is a little snowy, embrace for your photos! You’ll have unique images that you’ll cherish for a life time. Enjoy planning your winter wedding.
I can tell I am excited about summer and summer wedding season, because I keep saying to myself, “That would be perfect for a summer wedding this season!” It makes me chuckle to myself, but today, I’ve put together a list of wedding favors that are just that, perfect for a summer wedding. Living in the Pacific Northwest (Portland, Oregon), I would say they are even more appropriate for a Oregon wedding or Washington wedding. Take a look at what I found today! Yes, I am usually, really, that excited about everything.
Perfect Summer Wedding Favors
This works in any season, but mojitos are particularly tasty int he summer and these little mojito kits are adorable. Even better if you are featuring a mojito type drink as a signature cocktail at the reception. Couldn’t find the source for this from Pinterest.

So cute! You can find plenty of honey at the local Farmer’s Market, in our case here in Portland, the Portland Farmer’s Market usually has several fresh honey vendors with all types, lavender honey, clover honey, raspberry honey and more! Yum! From Something Borrowed PDX.
Who doesn’t love fresh cherries? Another fun Farmer’s Market bridal adventure. Ask the farmer which cherries are the best for snacking. I love the added personal touch with the lettered bags. Wedding idea from Once Wed.
