Autumn Acorn Wedding

Although summer is at its peak right now, many brides have their minds on their upcoming autumn weddings. If you haven’t already selected a theme for your fall nuptials, consider incorporating acorn details. Acorns, an iconic autumn item, can be used in many ways to give your wedding a warm fall feeling.

Instead of floral centerpieces (which often have a spring or summer feeling), opt for large hurricane vases with candles and acorns. Use fresh greens around the vases for extra color. Your tables will give off a warm glow in the reception space -- Pink Roses and Teacups

At the entrance to your reception, have a table filled with glasses of champagne for each guest to take upon their arrival.
