Yes, your wedding day will be an experience to your guests and not just an event. You want your family, friends, and guests to experience your excitement and joy on this momentous occasion. You have chosen to have your wedding during the fall months when the air is crisp and nature paints her canvas with hues of red, orange, yellow, and green.
When decorating your wedding reception hall, you will surely want to incorporate a fall theme. One way to bring an autumn atmosphere to your decor is with fall themed wedding favors. Wedding favors can be anything from personalized napkins at the cocktail bar and buffet, or place card holders for seating guests at the dinner tables, to small thank you gifts, presented on the dinner tables or in gift bags, for family and friends to take home after your wedding.
Fall Themed Cocktail Favors - Cocktail favors include napkins, matchbooks, swizzle sticks and coasters. You can add the colors of fall to your cocktail or juice bar by placing fall colored cocktail napkins, personalized with a fall leaf design, the bride and groom’s names, and wedding date, at the bar. Disposable coasters can also be custom printed with a fall design. Matchbooks and matchbook notepads are popular favors guests like to put in their pockets to save as mementos of weddings and special occasions.
Fall Themed Table Decorations - Add a touch of autumn color to your dinner tables with place card holders, votive candles and tea lights in the shape of maple leaves. Candles can be lit during your wedding reception to add ambiance or presented in favor bags or boxes as gifts your guests can take home to enjoy later. If you plan to light candles at your reception, check with your wedding coordinator or hall to ensure you are not violating any local fire codes. Leaf shaped place card holders can be used to seat guests while adding a fall theme to your table decor.
Fall Themed Thank You Favors - Maybe you are looking for small favors to place on your reception tables to say thank you to everyone for celebrating your wedding. Imagine the delight of family and friends when they discover a leaf shaped cookie cutter or a set of glass coasters with leaf designs that holds a wallet size photo in the center.
These are just a few ideas for fall wedding favors
you can incorporate into your wedding reception decor that, not only will family and friends adore, but will be used for years to come every fall holiday season.
