Making your wedding day unique and memorable is all part of the non-traditional matrimony experience. 

Here’s the thing. 

At this point, you’ve probably attended at least a few different weddings. 

And you’ve probably realized that at least some of the plans that people tend to utilize may almost feel a bit cookie-cutter for your artistic or creative tastes. 

Well, the good news is that you can make your wedding different—if you so desire. 

What’s the bad news?

Well, you’ll need to come up with a plan for how to do it without ruining the rest of the romance that weddings tend to generate. 

So here are some ideas for making your wedding truly unique without reinventing the wheel or starting entirely from scratch. 

You’ll likely come to find that mixing and matching a few memorable parts of the matrimonial planning process can do wonders for making it feel a bit more creative and awe-inspiring. 

And that’s always a good thing. 

Let’s dive into some ideas for how to make it happen. 

1. Create A Signature Drink

Maybe you and your groom-to-be have a favorite drink (or even a favorite theme to create a drink around) that you’d like to serve at the reception. 

You could even share this theme during the toast, and let them (the attendees) in on a fun origin story about the drink’s background or significance to your special day. 

Maybe it’s the drink you shared on your first date—or the drink you ordered to celebrate your engagement. 

In any case, you can definitely make it a part of your unique wedding celebration. 

2. Use An ‘Unorthodox’ Seating Pattern

Most weddings use traditional ‘ceremony’ seating patterns—such as those you’d see in a church, or in some other official ceremony room. 

But there are all kinds of different seating patterns that you may want to consider as an alternative—and you may be amazed at how big of a difference this can make in creating a truly creative atmosphere for the wedding. 

3. Choose Your Own Music

Music is almost always a crucial part of the wedding ceremony. 

However—you can really shake things up and put your own unique twist on the affair by switching it around and substituting a bit of ‘non-traditional’ artistic music into sections where very traditional tunes are usually utilized. 

This can really put a different spin on the ceremony, and can further enhance your ability to customize your special day to make it more perfect for you. 

4. Utilize A Unique Bridal Entrance

Most wedding parties will see the bride enter at the back of the room and walk up the aisle toward the groom—trailed by her wedding entourage, and escorted by her father (who will give her away at the altar). 

But while this approach is very traditional—it isn’t a must. 

You can switch this up if you so desire—and doing so can be a fantastic way of creating a much different effect when the bride actually enters the room. 

5. Use Lighting To Enhance The Mood

Lighting is an often underutilized tool for making events of any kind look spectacular. 

You may not want to light your wedding up like a rock concert or magic show—but you can rent some simple stage lights from a local event-rental company, and utilize them to create a romantic, ambient environment that otherwise just wouldn’t be possible. 

You could even get a bit wild with it and use a fog machine (set on the lowest setting, of course) to create an ethereal glow

This idea may not work for every wedding—but it’s certainly worth at least a try. 

Conclusion

Hopefully, this post has helped to give you some creative ideas for how you can make your wedding ceremony unique, different, memorable—and perfect for you. 

Remember, this is your wedding. You and your partner get to decide what goes and what doesn’t. 

Don’t be afraid to switch things up a bit. 

You deserve a wedding that’s every bit as creative and as unique as your relationship is!

So, you’re gearing up for an amazing fall wedding—and the time has finally come to choose your colors. 

Awesome! 

At this point, even if you’ve already settled on a somewhat traditional autumn theme, you’ve probably figured out that ‘typical fall colors’ fall within a fairly wide spectrum of different color options. 

In other words—red, orange, yellow, and gold are pretty much the standard. 

But which ‘yellow’ should you choose? Which ‘red’ is the perfect red?

These are the tough questions—and as the bride-to-be, you’re likely going to be the one making the primary decisions about these things. 

This is a big job. But hey—that’s also part of the fun. 

So let’s dig into it and find a bit of creative inspiration to help bring your wedding-planning themes together with the absolute perfect shades of red, yellow, gold, and orange. 

Here are some examples of fall wedding colors that’ll work well for any Ozark autumn-themed wedding day—regardless of whether or not you’re going to go ‘traditional’ with it. 

1. Bold Autumn Reds

When it comes to choosing the perfect ‘red’ for your autumn-themed wedding decor, flowers, or bridesmaid dresses, it’s important to keep in mind that red will likely be the ‘boldest’ color choice in the palette. 

This isn’t a color that you’ll want to be bashful about. 

To put it bluntly—most people find that a ‘go big or go home’ mentality works best when it comes to choosing autumn reds. 

30 Something Urban Girl recommends bold, beautiful reds like lava red, cadmium red, or ruddy red. 

These reds cover a very ‘fall-esque’ spectrum that you’re sure to fall in love with. 

2. Fall Golds (And Yellows) That Are Fit For A Queen

Gold is an undeniably crucial color in any fall or autumn palette. And honestly—this color also blends right into yellows that’ll eventually fade into red—bringing it all together. 

Therefore, choosing the proper shades of gold and yellow are important factors when planning a fall wedding. 

TheSpruce.com has reported their opinion about the best shades of yellow and gold by sharing a list of Behr shades that they love. This list includes options like Amber Autumn, Corn Stalk, Saffron Strands, and Cellini Gold

And honestly, we really like their style. 

3. Orange Colors That Are Perfect For A Fall Wedding

Orange is an interesting color in the sense that different shades of it can really range across the board. 

But we found a nice color-scheme picker on Bemoreyouonline.com

Personally, our favorite fall-orange color options were pumpkin, flame, and salamander

But with orange, it’s really mostly dependent upon which flowers you’re going to decorate with—and on what colors you plan to use for your bridesmaid dresses. 

For example—you can get some beautiful rose bouquets that’ll provide you with a subtle orange glow—and you can also match these elements to go along with your bridesmaid dresses (as well as with the rest of your decorations). 

Orange is the ‘transition color’ for fall decor. It’s the color that serves to bring the rest of your yellows, reds, and golds together for the ‘full color-spectrum effect.’ 

Conclusion

Hopefully, this post has helped to provide you with some inspiration that’ll help you to choose the very best fall wedding colors for your special day. 

Sometimes, choosing specific colors is tricky. 

It’s always a good idea to get a few different opinions and ideas, just to make sure you’re choosing the perfect colors for the wedding that you’ve envisioned. 

Of course, one of the best ways to put it all together is to get your ‘creative group’ together for input. 

Consider hosting a ‘color-picking’ party with your girlfriends, sisters, and mother to make firm choices about the color scheme. 

Remember—choosing colors is important. This will serve as the foundation upon which the rest of your decor will be built. 

So it really matters. 

You’ll want to knock this choice out of the park!

According to Martha Stewart, the boho wedding style incorporates an ‘eclectic mix of natural, rustic, and vintage details into the design.’

But to be honest, the concept really goes deeper than just the decor. 

As perfectly summarized by boho-weddings.com, boho isn’t just visual. It’s actually an entirely different way to think about and conceptualize your wedding. 

It’s a way of thinking that empowers you to incorporate more free-spirited, hippie, and bohemian influences into your special day. Some of these influences could include natural decor, earthy tones, a free-spirited lifestyle, and doubling down on an artistic expression of the self. 

Now, with all of that being said—you’re still probably left with the question:

“Well, how do I do it?”

This is really the most important question. 

Let’s talk about 5 tips that you can use to start incorporating more boho themes into your wedding. 

1. Weave Boho Elements Into Your Invitations

Choosing creative and artistic boho elements for your invitations and ‘save-the-dates’ is an awesome way to let people know ahead of time exactly what your theme is going to be. 

Check out this Pinterest page to get some awesome ideas for bohemian-styled invitations that you can use as inspiration for your own wedding invites. 

2. Use Boho Elements For Signs And Banners

When designing signs and banners for your wedding, you can really give them a boho style by making sure that you choose the proper colors. You’ll want to use ‘vintage’ colors, like light pink, orange-reds, off-whites, darker reds, etc. 

Plus, you can incorporate more laid-back fonts for the wording. With boho-styled decor, the fonts for wording are usually simple, basic, and chill. So, you’ll want to choose a ‘relaxed’ font as opposed to something bold or dominant

3. Use Boho Themes For Your Backdrops

One really cool design feature that a lot of boho weddings utilize is wild floral arrangements arranged on some kind of stand. 

For example—you could incorporate some kind of arch or square tubing backdrop, and then attach a large, flowing floral arrangement to the corner of the archway. 

(We’ll talk more about how to make your floral arrangements fit into the ‘boho theme’ in a moment.)

4. Of Course—You Can Also Choose A Boho Wedding Dress Style

Boho wedding dresses are really meant to embody a ‘carefree’ spirit. They’re also supposed to look effortless, unfussy, and unadorned. 

One hallmark sign of a boho wedding dress is that the silhouette will often be plain and lifelike. In other words, they won’t contain many frills or ‘extra adornments.’ 

With boho, you always want to keep things simple, minimalistic, and plain. 

Frilly lace and overly luxurious designs actually take away from the boho style. Think ‘less is more’ to get a better sense of what a boho dress might look like.

5. Finally – You Can Weave Boho Elements Into Your Floral And Tabletop Arrangements

Boho floral arrangements will make use of different types of flowers and other arrangement elements to create that traditional ‘boho’ style look. Some different types of elements used in such floral arrangements include:

  • Sahara roses
  • Golden mustard roses
  • Brown lisianthus
  • Terracotta carnations
  • Peach ranunculus 
  • Springs of olive branch
  • Gunni and baby eucalyptus
  • Pink ice protea

As you can tell, this is a pretty eclectic sampling of flowers—and for good reason! You can also include bunches of feathered and dried ‘grass’ type bundles to help break up the floral elements and really set the design apart.
