Near Perfect Weather
Sure, no season is going to be perfect for weddings. There's a drawback to each season. And the drawback to fall weddings in Virginia, and much of the East coast, is hurricane season. But, if your big day doesn't get rained on, you can have near perfect weather. For the most part, the intense heat of summer has passed and the cooler mornings and evenings of fall have come. Your guests won't get hot dancing the night away at an outdoor reception, nor will they roast in suits and gowns at your outdoor ceremony. If you choose to have an indoor wedding, you can sneak outside for some photos without being too cold or hot.
has a great list of ideas for your outdoor fall wedding so you can take advantage of the gorgeous weather. If you're worried about your guests being chilly, here are some fun ways to warm them up:
- Have a basket of blankets outside for your ceremony so your guests can get cozy
- Have a bonfire- bonus: you can make late night s'mores!
- Serve a warm cocktail, like a Hot Toddy, or a non-alcoholic drink like hot chocolate or coffee
