Cooler temps, cozy scarves, and pumpkin spice everything. If we’re speaking your language, a fall festive wedding may be right up your alley. Check out our list to discover what’s in season and what to take into consideration for the month of November.
November is known for being a bit more brisk than the preceding summer months. However, depending on where you live, you may experience warmer weather. So, again if you’re planning a wedding during this season, remember that the weather varies greatly based on which part of the country you’re in.
November Wedding Pros & Cons
There are tons of advantages to getting married in the November:
- Gorgeous foliage
- Typically temperate weather
- Lots of seasonally-inspired decor
- Possible off-season discounts to take advantage of
Plus, because peak wedding season is waning in most parts of the country, it may be easier for you to book your venue on a specific date or get your first choice of vendors.
However, there are some disadvantages to be aware of:
- As we’ve mentioned, autumn weather can be variable, not to mention even cold, rainy, or snowy on the East Coast!
- Fall holidays can cause potential date conflicts
Be sure to check with your photographer about the earlier sunset’s infamous “golden hour.” This is the prime time to take outdoor wedding photos, and it’s worth planning your ceremony around.
Autumn Color Palette
Although this color palette mimics the changing of the leaves and provides a natural warmth to any style or decor, don’t be cornered in by the “fall foliage” feel!
Wanna get a bit more modern with your fall color palette? Consider using gold or copper for a bit of glitz and glam, deep plum and emerald green for elegance, or neutral shades like champagne, cream, and slate gray.
November Wedding Flowers
While many flowers bloom year-round, there are some in-season fall flowers that are pure wedding perfections:
- Dahlias are absolutely gorgeous in a wedding bouquet, and deep burgundy dahlias are especially beautiful in the fall.
- Garden roses are the perfect alternative to peonies this time of year.
- Anemones, with their striking black centers, are a sophisticated addition to a bouquet.
- Marigolds come in festive fall colors of gold, orange, and red.
- Sunflowers add a touch of sunshine to any fall affair.
- Protea is an unexpected addition to a super-unique bridal bouquet.
We love the idea of using autumnal foliage, seasonal berries, or even acorns as part of your floral arrangements or table decor.
