If you love cooler temperatures, warmer colors, and cozy attire, a fall wedding may be right up your alley. While summertime has often been known as the season to get married thanks to the beautiful weather, the Las Vegas heat is often frustrating for newlyweds.
That’s why you can’t go wrong with a fall Las Vegas wedding. The weather is cooler, the hotels are more affordable, and the color palettes are vibrant and cozy. But before you fall in love with a fall wedding, here are a few other reasons why you should make Las Vegas the setting for your autumn nuptials!
Fall for a Fall Wedding in Las Vegas
With flashing lights and big-city energy, Las Vegas is truly a one-of-a-kind city. In the fall, Sin City is even better thanks to the cooler temperatures. Now you and your wedding guests can walk the strip together without feeling the heat! If you are planning to get married outside, the cooler temperatures make your big day more comfortable for everyone involved. On top of that, comfortable autumn evenings are ideal for sunset weddings.
Fall is also the start of the holiday season. From Halloween in October to Thanksgiving in November, there are several reasons to celebrate during this time of year. Although you should steer clear of scheduling your wedding on an actual holiday, consider hosting your wedding on a holiday weekend. That way, your guests will be able to enjoy their time without feeling rushed to get back to their responsibilities at home.
Fall is also the start of the American football season. Get creative by including football into your wedding. Putting your favorite team’s logo on your wedding desserts or naming a signature cocktail after them are some great options to think about.
Affordable Fall Rates
Another reason to enjoy a fall wedding in Las Vegas is for the low hotel rates. The fall season is quieter, making it easier to find hotels on the strip for a discounted price. Your guests can plan a dream vacation, while you and your new spouse can honeymoon suites for an excellent deal.
And because peak wedding season is fading, it may be easier for you to book your venue on a specific date or get your first choice of vendors.
Fall Wedding Dresses
Fall brides can elevate the romance and old-school glamour to complement the striking autumn surroundings. Capture the essence of the season with a wedding gown featuring long sleeves, intricate applique overlays, and champagne tones.
Fall Hairstyles & Make-Up
Once you have your fall wedding dress picked out, it’s time to create the perfect hair and makeup. Of course, your look will be quite different than in summer and spring weddings. During the fall, brides tend to ask for relaxed, boho-chic hairstyles. Whether you choose a flower crown, loose curls, a braided bun, or traditional updo, select a hairstyle that suits your personality and wedding theme. For makeup, consider rocking a bold berry lip or auburn eye.
Fall Wedding Colors
Another reason to love fall? Fall is all about a vibrant and warm color palette. However, since Las Vegas is a vivid city full of endless color possibilities, couples can creatively use color without being limited by the season.
Wedding couples prefer browns, oranges, reds, and cream colors. We also find that plums, burgundy, pastels, and neutral accents are the most common complementary colors. Dark tones reflect the naturally changing landscape, while the worn and weathered pastels add just a hint of romance.
Modest tiers and topper-less cakes are having a moment, especially for the fall season. Rather than decorating cakes with fondant designs or icing flowers, couples are choosing a fresh, textured look, adorned with clusters of blossoms or greenery.
In addition to simple and natural designs, the size of the wedding cake is shrinking. Couples are switching out oversized cakes with unique treat alternatives come dessert time.
Fall Food and Drinks
Offering creative food and drink stations is the perfect opportunity to wow your wedding guests while keeping their bellies warm and full. The fall harvest boasts some comforting grub. In-season vegetables include root veggies like turnips and rutabagas, along with all sorts of squash, pumpkin, and sweet potatoes. Vivid fruits like apples, cranberries, pears, and pomegranates are also available in abundance. These fresh and comforting eats are sure to get your taste buds tingling.
You may also want to consider adding fall wedding signature drinks on your menu. Since fall wedding cocktails are all about savory flavors, create the following craft cocktails:
- Dark rum paired with sweet apples
- Bourbon infused with nutmeg and vanilla bean
- Cardamom-scented spiked chai
- Hot cider
- Caramel apple mules
- Kahlua-spiked hot chocolate
If you’re looking for something a little lighter, sparkly Prosecco pairs flawlessly with pear, ginger, and sage.
Wedding décor and attire aside, this is one of the best ways to personalize your wedding reception and impress your guests. Lean on seasonal, local flavors to get the freshest food imaginable.
Flowers are the heart of a wedding ceremony. Each flower symbolizes a different belief and symbol in wedding culture. Fall’s bounty provides endless possibilities for weddings. Couples love designing their floral arrangements with autumnal foliage, seasonal berries, and acorns. Dahlias, amaryllis, and peonies, these bundles of blooms are a classic choice for Autumn nuptials.
