I hope that you slept with your windows cracked last night… just in time to breathe in those first chilly winds of autumn eve. While our daylit hours may still feel like August, I swear that fall’s crispness is in the nighttime air. Go ahead and celebrate by treating yo’self to a Biggby hot Caramel Apple Cider (trust me on this one).

In honor of the seasonal shift, I’ve pulled together some of my favorite Michigan Fall Wedding inspirations – little enhancements that cheer the falling of leaves and warmth of cable-knit sweaters without falling into the Halloween-orange category.

If you’re tying the knot before the first snow, we’ve got plenty of ideas for you:

  • Hot apple cider served as guests arrive to an outdoor ceremony (or indoor reception!). Like most metro Detroiters, we love Blake’s out of Armada, Yates Cider Mill in Rochester, and Parmenter’s Cider Mill in Northville for the west-siders among us. Pair them with mini cinnamon doughnuts… and… OMG.
  • A fur stole, even if it’s faux, is a gorgeously luxe addition to mark your entry and exit in a way that’s equal parts bohemian and classic. This one is less than $100 and can be ordered from Anthro.
  • Seasonal bouquets like this one from Blumz add the perfect amount of pizzaz without teetering into gawdy fall territory (I’m talking to you, neon orange). Instead, opt for soft pinks, subtle tangerines, creams, mossy greens and cornhusk blues.
  • Feathers! Need I say more? Dipped in gold and laid atop menus, this tiny decor adds a heavy dose of ooh-la-la on a DIY budget, wouldn’t you say?
  • Neutral palette colors like this muted champagne tie simply sing against a backdrop of fiery fall hues. When nature’s bursting in all it’s glory, you can get away with an understated vibe more easily than in other parts of the year.
  • Caramel apples, s’mores and popcorn balls are the official treats of the season in my humble opinion. Whether you’re loading up a dessert table or packaging them with twine for favors, nobody (read: nobody) is going to leave these guys on the table. I love the s’more kits I’ve seen sold in the Plum Market gourmet chocolates section, and you can grab a mad caramel popcorn ball via Detroit Popcorn, too.
