Fall inspired party favors to Fall in Love with

It is officially fall! Our last blog was "7 Amazing ideas for your Fall Wedding" and we couldn't stop there with the fall ideas. We are so excited to share some season inspired party favors your guests will be sure to fall in love with!

Pinecone Fire Starters

Looking for a favor that is easy and not very expensive? Why not having pinecone fire starters as your favor? This is easy to create and so fun and different for your guests.

 

Let love light the way

A personalized votive or simply a vanilla scented candle, candles are something your guests can use for those chilly nights. Add in some custom matchbooks with cute little sayings like “sparks flew” for an extra touch.

The endless possibilities of mason jars

Who doesn’t love mason jars? You can use them to drink your favorite beverage or for a country inspired vase. Fill personalized Mason jars with some of you and your husband-to-be’s favorite snacks then after enjoying the snack your guests can use the jar at their home as they see fit.

Send a cup of love with tea, coffee or even hot chocolate

Nothing screams fall like cozying up with a nice warm cup of coffee, tea or hot chocolate. Packaging up some coffee or tea with shortbread cookies is a great party favor for your guests to use while sending you and yours warm thoughts.

Have S'more Love

  Who doesn't love a good roasted marshmallow over a camp fire on top of Hershey's chocolate and in between two graham crackers? A good way to stay on budget and bring your guests back to times as a kid make s'mores during the Fall season. 

7 Amazing Ideas for Your Fall Wedding

Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year. And with this season comes some of the best wedding ideas. Take a look at some of our favorite fall wedding details!

 

Plaid Shirts

Nothing says fall like plaid. If your wedding will be on the cooler side, thank your bridesmaids with plaid flannels. They can slip the flannels on before and after the ceremony for some fun photos, and they’ll thank you for the extra layer of warmth. For a more casual fall wedding, pick out the perfect plaid shirts for the groomsmen to wear.

Pie

There’s just something about fresh pie on a crisp, autumn day. If you’re a pie lover, pick your favorite pie to serve as your wedding cake. Or have a small cake for you and your groom to cut, and have a variety of pies for your guests to enjoy.

Bridal Blanket Scarf

A blanket scarf is the perfect detail for bridal shots, and the cozy wrap will keep you from freezing on the best day of your life. Choose a scarf that matches your color scheme, or just choose your favorite scarf!

Pumpkin Spice

Why not bring everyone’s favorite fall drink to your reception? Set up a drink station with mugs and warm drinks…like pumpkin spice lattes! If you decide to keep it simple and stick with coffee, provide a pumpkin spice creamer for your guests to try.

 

Caramel Apples

The yummy treat that reminds every one of their childhood. Why not wrap them individually and use them as wedding favors? If you already have favors, set up a bar where guests can top their apple with whatever they want.

 

Pumpkins

White pumpkins, mini pumpkins, orange pumpkins, huge pumpkins, and beyond! Use mini pumpkins as adorable placeholders, and use larger pumpkins as centerpieces. If your wedding is near Halloween, you could even use jack-o-lanterns instead.

Leaves

Include fall-colored leaves in your wedding bouquet or even in your flower crown. Gather leaves and use them to decorate gift tables, drink stations, seating tables, and more.

 

If you love gold, this is for you. Spray paint leaves gold and write your guests’ names on them as place holders. Or arrange gold spray-painted leaves to create a stunning backdrop for your ceremony. Gold leaves are seriously magical.

Guest Book Keepsakes Worth Noting- San Antonio Wedding Planner

A guest book is a great way to capture the wishes of all your loved ones who were there to celebrate with you on your big day, but who said the book had to be a book? We gathered a few unique ways to personalize your guest book and make your wedding more about your love story.

Love notes for the years to come

We could not think of a better way to reminisce about your I do’s on your anniversary than to be able to open a bottle with little notes of love and advice from your loved ones who attended your wedding. Each wine bottle will represent an anniversary year. Ask your guests to write a note for you and your husband to read at each anniversary!

Stepping-stones

Ask your guests to write a little note on a stone for your garden or a flat rock that will later be used for a stone path in your backyard. This is a beautiful way to decorate your new home while remembering those that were there on your big day. Just make sure the stone is not too hard to carry and the right size to fit all of your guest’s signatures and wishes.

Tis the season

Are your nuptials around the holidays or are you in love with Christmas as much as you are with your fiancé? Regardless your reason to be in the season, asking your guests to sign Christmas ornaments are a great way to be surrounded by love from your wedding during the holiday season! You can then use the ornaments to place on your first tree as husband and wife or in a vase with small twinkle lights for a table centerpiece. You can also explore using clear fillable ornaments for you to later put dried flowers from your wedding. What a beautiful way to celebrate the season and your love!

Q&A

A fun way to entertain your guests during the ceremony is to have a few questions on each table for them to answer on a card that you can later place in a scrapbook.  The cards can ask for advice, their favorite memories of the bride or groom, or their hopes for your future as mister and misses! Get creative or silly with your questions, this is about creating a keepsake of your big day and those you love!

Photo booth fun

Chalk, chalk board and photo booth is all you need to capture photos of your guests and their wishes and advice all in one shot. Ask guests to write a note then take a photo that prints right away. Guests can then place their photo in the scrapbook so you can have a face to the love note they wrote for you!
