Fall Navy & Marsala Wedding| Meg + Bobby

There is a richness to fall weddings at Warrenwood that makes it easy to fall in love with the FEEL of a wedding day.  The changing leaves give character to the landscape and compliment the jewel-toned color palettes of the season.  There is a natural air of sophistication.  The wedding of Meg and Bobby epitomized these qualities.  They choose a timelessly classic navy and marsala look for their October wedding.  With a touch of rustic and a dash of traditional, this wedding had the right amount of comfort and class.  Meg and Bobby were so happy it was hard to stop smiling all day!

A Romantic Ruby Wedding | Kaitlynn + Thomas

Kaitlynn and Thomas had one of those weddings that you want to take a picture of everything because it’s just that perfect!  Layered textures and vibrant colors gave their ceremony and reception a unique rustic chic almost boho feel.  Their event was also romantic and full of love all around.  Kaitlynn and Thomas were adorable as they exchanged their vows in an outdoor ceremony with the cottage as their backdrop.  Then, as you will see in their photos, they laughed the night away at the barn reception.  Be ready to be inspired by this stunning couple and their wedding.

Entertain Your Guests With Wedding Activities

Let’s be honest, wedding guests can get antsy between activities.  To increase the fun factor at your wedding consider including a few of the following activities.  Let me be clear though, DO NOT do all of these, half of these or even a fourth of these.  Instead, choose only a few activities and do them well!  Too many activities will make your event about the games and not about your marriage.

Yard Games

There are so many options for yard games.  There is corn hole, ring toss, jenga, horseshoes, checkers, connect four, scrabble, beersbee, tic-tac-toe, lawn bowling, croquet, bocce ball and burlap sack races just to name a few.  Get creative and pick whichever ones you like the most. Here are even more ideas.

Interactive Games and Dances

  • The shoe game is a great way to give people as break from the dance floor for some laughs.  Bridal Guide describes it as follows, “Remove both of your shoes, then trade a shoe with your new spouse so that you’re holding one of each. Then, have a designated person ask a series of questions about the two of you and your relationship (i.e.. “Who will be doing most of the cooking?” “Who said ‘I love you’ first?”). After each question, hold up the shoe of the person you think is the best answer to the question.”  See their blog post for more details.
  • Get your guests involved in the shoe game by giving them something to hold up to weigh in on the questions.  Some people print the face of the bride and groom for their guests to hold up.
  • The dollar dance is a bit controversial to some, but it can be hysterical if you’re up for it.  Traditionally, guests contribute money to the bride and groom in order to dance with them.  The money can be for the honeymoon or whatever they want.  Luckily, The Knot wrote a post about etiquette for and alternatives to the dollar dance.
  • The anniversary dance gets guests of all ages on the dance floor.  Ask all married couples to come dance to a classic tune.  Then excuse couples in order of how many years they have been married starting with 1 year and working your way up.  This is a great way to celebrate lasting love!

Stations

Get your guests up and moving by creating stations spread around your venue with actives.

  • Have a table for guests to make their own party favor.  The can personalize their favor or select their favor from several options.
  • Food stations such as candy bars, s’mores bars and baked potato stations are always a hit.  Guests love options!    Here are more food station  and drink station ideas.
  • Depending on your crowd, you could do wine, craft beer or whiskey tasting stations.  We especially like the idea of a Kentucky Bourbon tastings here in Kentucky.
  • For the guys you could even do a cigar rolling station.

Photo Activities

Photographers capture the beauty of your day, but they don’t always get all the casual, candid and comical moments.  Photo activities can help you and your guests see your event from different angles in an entertaining way.

  • A traditional option is to hire a photo booth to set up at your event.  They provide all kinds of props and usually give you access to see all the photos afterward.  You can personalize your photo booth with a custom backdrop (ideas here).
  • Do a polaroid seating chart or guestbook to keep track of everyone that attends your event.
  • Print I Spy cards to encourage your guests to take certain pictures throughout the event.
  • Even without hiring a photo booth you can creative a fun photo backdrop for your guests to snag photos in front of.
  • I love the idea of doing a video booth to capture messages from your guests.  You can ask them to say something specific or let them be creative.

Table Activities

Consider table activities if you want to provide things for your guest to do that don’t require a lot of space or even for them to get up.  Mad lib sheets, advice booklets and icebreaker activities are always a hit if your guests are the type to give them a chance.  In the advice booklets you could ask for date ideas, anniversary ideas or even marriage advice.  Etsy has soooooo many options.

Creative Guestbooks

A standard guestbook is totally fine if that is your style, but their are so many way to jazz up this oftentimes dull task.  You can venture out from the norm by having one of the following as your guestbook.

  • Have guests sign pieces of a Jenga or puzzle set.
  • A Map or globe where people pin where they are from and sign their name.
  • Guests can leave a note on quilt square.
  • Ask guests to put their finger print on a canvas.  There are so many shape options for this and Etsy is a great place to see your options.
  • Have small pieces of paper for your guests to write a message to put in a bottle.  You could burry the bottle as a time capsule to be opened on 1st, 5th and/0r 10th anniversary.
  • Provide a giant color-in mural for guests to add to throughout the night, like a paint by numbers.  Guests can sign the portion they color.
  • Praise Wedding gives you 28 other guestbook ideas.

Kid Friendly Fun

There are so many activity options for keeping the kiddos busy at your wedding.  Know your crowd and choose games that are appropriate for the age and taste of the kids.  Consider: board games, custom wedding coloring books, I Spy with disposable cameras, holla hoops and/or glow sticks.  BuzzFeed gives you even more ideas.

Get Social

  • Have a custom wedding hashtag so you can easily find all the images your guests and vendors are taking at your event.  Be sure to post the hashtag where everyone will see it.
  • You could even do a custom Snapchat filter to make your snaps extra special.

We also love these 31 Impossibly Fun Wedding Ideas from BuzzFeed, these 30 Unique Wedding Ideas from The Knot and these 10 Wedding Games That Your Guests Will Love.

A Character-Filled Fall Wedding | Megan + Ron

Every wedding is unique, but Megan and Ron really went above and beyond to fill their wedding day with character from beginning to end.  To start, they choose a rarely used ceremony location and gave it a rustic glam vibe with a chandelier and drapery hung in a tree.  It was the perfect look for a perfect fall day with the leaves in full color and the sun shining.  Then the combination of smoke bombs, food trucks, a custom photo booth backdrop and glow stick exit made for a fun, laughter-filled evening.  It is always so refreshing to see a bride and groom embrace who they are and showcase that in unique ways at their wedding.

A Rich Fall Marsala & Blush Wedding | Lindsey + David

Marsala and blush never looked as good as it did at the rich fall wedding of Lindsey and David.  They tied the knot in October 2016 in the back yard under an arch of stunning fall blooms.  They continued the celebration with a reception in the barn.  Blush linens, gold accents and lush floral centerpieces made for a classy southern glam vibe.  Ivory drapery from the barn rafters really made a statement.  Good food and great company made for an evening to remember.

In addition to enjoying a stunning wedding, I also loved the opportunity during this event to work with several new event experts.  Jackie, of Every Last Detail, was amazing to work with and as she her name suggests, she really did see to every last detail of the event.  Furthermore, I have followed Jeanie Gorrell’s floral design work for a long time so it was an honor to have her at Warrenwood.  She really mastered this rich fall color palette with her complex and textured floral design.  See for yourself the result of an all-star vendor lineup.

A Romantic Traditional Wedding | Arynn + Adam

All I can think about when I think of this wedding is how sweet everyone was. The couple, their family, and their friends actually all felt like part of my family after the wedding. Not to mention Arynn and Adam are just the cutest! They were in the process of moving to another state AND planning a wedding all while staying so sweet and chill. Not gonna lie, I was super impressed with these two. Everything about their traditional, romantic wedding day was just perfect!

Branch out from Pinterest for Wedding Inspiration

Pinterest is a great resource for wedding and event inspiration, but it can be difficult to find new creative ideas.  As an alternative, blogs are the perfect place to find original content.  Here is a list of our ten favorite wedding inspiration blogs along with their description of what they do and how they do it.

Green Wedding Shoes

“At Green Wedding Shoes, we are truly. madly. deeply. head over heels in love with love. We love sharing weddings with our readers and believe that there is no “right” way to throw a wedding. Whether you’re dreaming of an intimate wedding on a farm, a weekend camping adventure or a handmade wedding in a loft, we love them all! I love showing couples how their wedding can be all about them and that it’s ok to break traditions to make the day their own. Since beginning GWS, our mission has been to help couples personalize their wedding day and make it truly about the two of them as a couple, because that is what the day is about, right?! We love great photography – because it’s the one thing you have to remember after the event! And we have lots of great artists to recommend in our GWS Wedding Artist Guide to help create a GWS wedding. Our site started with us sharing amazing weddings and has now grown to also sharing entertaining, lifestyle, DIY and fashion + beauty features – so there is really something for everyone!”

We are a unique wedding planning resource for and by thoughtful, crafty, modern women. Our vendors, projects, and weddings are hand-picked, and thoroughly researched with the hope that every single one is a truly unique addition to both your wedding and your planning process.

Wedding Chicks

“Wedding Chicks are all about sharing wedding inspiration, bridal fashion, DIY tips to inspire and inform couples before their special day. We also have Free Printables, one super cute shop. Happy Wedding!”

Ruffled

Jessica and Timothy are just the sweetest, most considerate, fun-loving couple.  They laughed and enjoyed their weekend with help from an all-star team of talented friends, family and vendors.  Every inch of Warrenwood was dressed to perfection; from the mantles in the house to the garland hung in the barn.  The bright, vibrant florals and cobalt accents were a refreshing departure from our normal color palettes.  See for yourself how stunning this event was.  It is so much fun working with nice people putting on a beautiful event.
