For this article, we wanted to share with you some reasons to get married in fall and some fun ideas to put into a fall wedding in Key West.

  • The temperatures are cooling down, so you and your guests won’t sweat as much, and outside will be more enjoyable, especially in the evening hours.
  • You (and your guests) can wear strapless, sleeveless, or sleeves because the weather will be more comfortable!
  • The palm trees, ocean water, beautiful marina, docks, sand, boats, and more, make for a beautiful backdrop for all your photos!
  • Traditional fall colors are fun to play with and incorporate into your décor and attire. Colors include: deep reds, plums, maroons, oranges, golden yellows, and gold.
  • Apples and autumn go hand in hand. Incorporate apples into your décor or food. Dessert could be apple pie, apple cake, or apple crisp! You could put apples on the tables as part of the centerpieces. Serve apple cider or apple cider doughnuts!
  • Pumpkin, just like apple, is a big fall flavor. Place little pumpkins and gourds on the tables. Serve pumpkin pie, pumpkin coffee, or pumpkin cookies!
  • People come from all over to see the changing foliage of the north. Why not bring it down to Key west? Incorporate fall’s leaves into your bouquets with red and orange leaves. Put some colored leaves onto the tables or even sprinkle them on the runner for you to walk down the aisle on.
  • Serve mulled wine and cider for cocktails!
  • Make your menu reflect fall’s wonderful spice-filled and hearty flavors! Think about having warm soups, squashes, pumpkin, apples, mac & cheese, stews, casseroles, and more!
  • It’s easier to find venues for booking later in the fall.
  • Travel doesn’t cost as much during the fall, so a destination wedding to Key West can be cheaper for guests.
