Lucky Dates

There’s a bonus for being a September bride! Getting married during the first month of fall actually means you and your partner will have a smooth and serene life. Better yet, it’s good luck to wed on the 1st, 9th, 16th, 18th or 28th of the month. Who can argue with that?

The Hashtag

It’s no secret that social media hashtags have been taking over the wedding world recently. Most couples devise a clever hashtag incorporating their last names, but being a September bride has its perks. #FallInLoveWithMe, #Fallingfor(InsertLastName), you get the gist. You can even use it as thematic wedding inspiration for decor!

Hit the Lights

Whether it’s candles on guests’ tables, lanterns on the reception grounds, or strung lights above the dance floor, make sure to incorporate the warm glow of low-lit lighting. Autumn is all about candles, after all.

Rustic Elements

Emanate that fall feeling with rustic elements like barrels, wood frames and beer or wine bottles for centerpieces. They complete any reception space and can be accessorized with flowers, candles or mason jars.

Cozy Coffee Bar

Once the reception is underway and most of your guests have hit the dance floor, present a coffee, tea and hot chocolate bar with cute mugs and all the fixings. What a creative and cozy way to give your guests that warm and fuzzy feeling!
