Whether large or small, no fall wedding is complete without ribbons!
What a beautiful time of year to have a wedding. With the cooler air and the crisp fall colors and smells, there is no better time to celebrate a couple’s love for each other. And, with the available dark-colored ribbons, decorating for any fall wedding has never been easier!
From reds and oranges to deep purples and greens, everything about a fall wedding will be a lot more fun with ribbons. Add them to invitations and RSVP cards. And, to keep with tradition, add them to the wedding or groom’s cake. Or, look for something a little less traditional and attach personalized ribbons to balloons.
Use fun, personalized ribbons to secure balloons to a table or other decorative spot. Run a ribbon from the base of each balloon to the table and secure it with a piece of tape or by tying it around a balloon weight. These ribbons should complement or match the balloons so as not to detract from the rest of the decorations. Use multiple strands per balloon for added fun. Or tie pretty bows to the base of each balloon.
Add ribbons into the lighting at the event. By draping ribbons with soft lights, the couple’s chosen colors will pop and dance around the room. Or, tie bows around candles to add to the decorations. But, no matter where the ribbons are used, make sure to include the pretty fall wedding colors to all of the decorations!
Another idea is to incorporate personalized ribbons into the wedding guestbook. Use a ribbon roll and have everyone sign the back of the ribbon length. Or use blank badge ribbons and have guests sign the ribbons and leave special wedding wishes. Once these are signed, put them in a box or a basket for some added color on the table. And the bride and groom are sure to keep these ribbons sitting out in their new home to remind them of their special day.
Be Creative With Flowers
Instead of giving everyone flowers to hold while standing in a traditional wedding line, make ribbon wands for the bridesmaids. Make them as big as needed, and the cascading ribbons are sure to get the attention they deserve. Ribbon wands are also a great way to send off the bride and groom at the end of the ceremony. Instead of rice or bubbles, have everyone wave these colorful ribbons as the happy couple departs from the venue. And then let each guest keep their wand as a memento of the joyous occasion.
Or, create a flower station for guests and the wedding party to make corsages to wear. Pick out flowers in the chosen wedding colors, or use the Autumn season as inspiration. From sunflowers to deep red roses, let everyone create a small corsage or hold a flower bouquet to represent the love surrounding them. Get super creative and have the wedding guests each hand the bride a flower to add to her bouquet as she walks down the aisle.
