When it comes to planning a wedding, every bride looks forward to creating something personal and unique. Inherent in this idea is bringing in elements of the personalities and interests of the bride and groom. One aspect of this can be choosing the time of year for the big event. While many opt for early spring and summer, a growing number of new brides are re-discovering the beauty and versatility of the fall season as a beautiful backdrop for the big event.

A Natural Backdrop of Beauty

Much like the spring, the autumn season is a time of year when nature shows off its absolute best in terms of show-stopping color and beautiful light. The fall month is classic for providing striking natural bounty in the form of beautiful foliage, orange-red bittersweet, and rustic pods and branches. These can provide an element of uniqueness for decorations and a beautiful enhancement for bouquets. The natural fall colors can also be a perfect backdrop for color schemes incorporating deeper shades and jewel tones that might look out of place earlier in the year. Plus, you shouldn’t need to worry about you or your guests melting under the hot Midwest sun.

The Reliable and Professional Choice for Wedding Transportation Service

If you’re planning a fall wedding next year, it’s smart to book wedding transportation as early as February or March of 2016. This allows for the recommended six month timeline before the special day. It’s also a good idea to set aside two to three percent of the budget for transportation.
