Autumn is one of the most popular times to get married. It’s rare you get a day off of work for you to get married and enjoy your honeymoon. Weekdays are cheaper than weekends. So why not have a thanksgiving wedding?
The fall leaves offer a beautiful contrast for a white dress, and makes for a natural backdrop for any photos.
Dinner? It’s a no-brainer: turkey! Discounts are offered everywhere for less-than-perfect turkeys like small ones that no one buys. Go for them and save hundreds! Cheaper sides are rice, potatoes, carrots and of course gravy. Serve up traditional beverages, pumpkin pie and you’re all set!
Thanksgiving is a time when family naturally gets together, so you can even have a surprise wedding. Invite a minister, make sure you have your marriage license already, and start the wedding with everyone present!
You don’t even need decorations if it’s an outdoor wedding and there are trees nearby. The beautiful autumn colors are natural decorations. For centerpieces, you can use the beautifully colored leaves, some acorns and twigs and make a masterpiece. Even just some leaves and a mason jar makes gorgeous centerpieces.
Backs of chairs can have autumn wreaths. You can get small ones at the dollar store. Hang them on the backs of the chairs and you have gorgeous pieces! Before the reception you can use them as aisle runners.
