Fall is in full swing, and for brides and grooms planning their autumn nuptials, the design of the big day is beginning to come together. For those wanting to showcase the beauty of the season, they are likely looking for inspiration regarding their reception tables and how they might conceptualize them. We at Inside Weddings are fans of fall, and nothing represents a picturesque and seasonal event better than an outdoor celebration. For those couples fortunate enough to be hosting their nuptials in a mild climate, alfresco festivities are a lovely way to commemorate the day.
The key design of outdoor weddings – especially when they occur in September, October, or November – is a bold color palette. Splashes of darker hues displayed in reception décor are idyllic: they beautifully accent the season. Whether you’re planning an understated, rustic day or an opulent, open-air soirée, tablescapes are an essential part of your overall motif. See pictures below from real outdoor weddings featuring reception tables perfect for the autumn months, and be sure to click each photo for further inspiration.
