How to Choose an Autumn Wedding Location
Every year, more excited brides are choosing to get married in the fall. Beautiful autumn weddings are edging in on June’s undisputed popularity—and it’s easy to understand why. Fall weddings offer three great advantages over other times of the year: Mother Nature provides stunning outdoor décor, the weather is typically pleasant, even outdoors, and guests have more availability and fewer schedule conflicts than during summer vacations.
There are many gorgeous fall wedding locations; many combine the vivid hues of fall foliage with dazzling landscape features like waterfalls, lakes and mountains. Here are some great ideas for breathtaking wedding venues:
