ITEMS TO INCORPORATE
The 2015 Vinewood Fall Open House was inspired by apple orchards. So to create the color scheme we focused on Gala Apples specifically. Deep reds, warm yellows and accents of blush were all taken from the skin of the apple and incorporated in the florals selected for the bridal bouquet and garlands on both the farm tables and on the wedding tree. Mini apple pies and spiced apple cider rum punch were just a couple of the details that embellished upon the apple theme. Lastly, we selected a sweet plaid shirt to pair with a classic wedding gown to give more casual feel to the bridal attire and complete the apple orchard look.
THINGS TO REMEMBER
When you are choosing a theme and color palette for your wedding also consider your venue. You wouldn’t want to do an apple orchard theme in a hotel ballroom. Also be sure to keep the decor subtle and consistent, otherwise it can come across as contrived. Focus on just a few main areas to incorporate your theme and then stick to your color palette to pull the feeling throughout your overall event. The apple orchard theme definitely leant itself to being casual, so craft paper was used for place cards and table settings were comprised of earthenware and vintage flatware.
