Fall Wedding Food Trends
Creative food and drink stations are having a moment. We’re not just talking dessert bars here, we’re talking gourmet coffee stands, craft beer tastings, build-your-own taco bars and even barbeque sauce stations. Wedding decor and attire aside, this is one of the best ways to personalize your reception and share a truly unique experience with your guests.
Finishing Touches: Depending on what type of station is best for your budget, consider hiring an expert to really round out the experience. A barista who knows the ins and outs of coffee beans can recommend brews to your friends and family—similarly, for a cocktail or craft beer bar, a certified mixologist can wow them with bartender tricks.
Fall Wedding Reception Trends
Bring your decor to new heights—literally. The space between the tabletops and ceiling is really being taken advantage of. After all, if you can’t build additional square footage onto your reception space, build up! If your wedding theme is more formal, tall candles and ornate candelabras are making a comeback. If you want to keep things rustic and natural, bring the outdoors in with leaf-adorned branches. (Bonus: The beautiful changing colors in the leaves act as their own decor.)
Finishing Touches: For a rustic theme, round out the Mother Nature–inspired decorations with a favor table overflowing with juicy red apples. For a touch of glitz and glamour, stock it with mini bottles of wine (a seasonal vintage) or boxes of macarons.
