There are several tips that you can use for planning a fall wedding in Minnesota from choosing the perfect wedding venue to coordinating the best decor with the time of year. We have put together our best list of tips to ensure you have the best fall wedding in Minnesota!

Guests

The first tip is to make sure that everyone at your wedding including yourself has the ability to stay warm. This is because there is a good chance that it is going to be cold outside during the fall, so you will need to prepare for this. This is when you will need to offer the guests of your wedding a throw blanket that they can use during the wedding. A cup of hot cocoa is another great way to keep the guests of your wedding cozy, especially during the reception.

Nature

The second tip is to use the backdrop of nature to your advantage. This means that you don’t want to miss out on all of the changing colors of fall that will surround you. When you are planning on a wedding in the fall, then you will need to fully embrace the backdrop that nature will be giving you. Therefore, you will need to take plenty of your wedding photos outside.

Food/Beverages

The third tip is to serve all of the different foods and beverages that people might enjoy during the fall months. Some of the favorite beverages for the fall is coffee, hot cocoa, hot apple cider, and seasonal teas. The food that people will probably like is candy apples, donuts, and something that is pumpkin flavored like a cream cheese muffin. Some of the other desserts that you might serve is apple tarts, cider doughnuts, or pumpkin pudding. Something else that would be cute as wedding favors is the maple syrup bottles. There are many different catering companies in Minnesota that can accommodate your guests and deliver fall-inspired food choices.

Decor

The fourth tip is to tie in the seasonal decor like corn stalks, gourds, and pumpkins when you are decorating for the wedding. The guests can seat on bales of hay that are covered with blankets. You can use centerpieces that are fall themes. Instead of rose blankets down the aisle, you can sprinkle colorful leaves. If you are looking for something that is not so traditional, then you can carry a bouquet of wildflowers. The place card holders can be made of maple leaves to add a lot of color to your tables. When you are looking for something that is a little more romantic, then you can use driftwood as candle holders to go with the wood centerpieces that you have used.

Venue

The last tip and most important one is choosing a venue that can accommodate the number of guests attending your wedding and that is suitable for the fall weather. While some may not mind being outside in the cool breeze of fall, other guests may prefer to be in an inside venue to keep warm. We recommend looking at St. James Hotel in Red Wing as an option for your big day that showcases old-world charm with modern amenities that you would expect on your big day.
