"I Fall For You" style board; Designed by Two Chic Chicks

"I Fall For You" style board; Designed by Two Chic Chicks. March 2012.


Fall is one of our favorite times of  the year. The colors are vibrant, the air is crisp and if you reside  in someplace that gets a good amount of heat annually (like Texas, for instance), fall can be the perfect time of the year to host an outdoor fete because it’s not too hot nor is it too cold to have your guests mingle around outside.

The vibrancy of the shades during fall lends itself to a full display of colors that are on fire with their intensity – a palette of reds, coppers, golds and oranges justy waiting to be trabsformed into a nature-inspired event that will delight you and your guests with equal fervor.

To set the tone of a fall-themed wedding, make sure that you send out the perfect invitation. The one we chose is a foldover design with an espresso envelope, ivory invitation and an elegantly embossed brocade design in tangerine (this year’s “IT” color, by the way). The tone is set further with perfectly coordinating attire for the bridal party; a haute couture – yet totally affordable – wedding gown that’s stunning on both a runway and in an outdoor wedding; glitzy accessories; a birch “bark” wedding cake; and lavish, fall fabulous decorations which can include rented birch trees (if the budget allows, of course). For the reception, bring the fall theme to the table with seasonally-inspired edibles such as a blood orange salad and an apple-based signature cocktail and end the evening with maple syrup favors for your guests!

Hawaiian Luau style board

We’ve been fans of by David Tutera‘s impressive creations for a long while and recently sat through a weekend-long marathon of his show, My Fair Wedding on WEtv. The result is a new-found appreciation for glam and gala, and we’re happy to say that our creative juices have been reawakened. Thank you, David for that little bit of motivation that we were needing!

Our board was inspired by David’s magical Hawaiian Luau wedding that he created for his bride, Kristin. Shades of pinks such as fuchsia, rose and magenta, all blend together for a color scheme that speaks of the flowers in the tropics. Bamboo furniture, orchids, and even a signature cocktail add the needed extra-special elements to have you and your guests feel as if you were transported to a private tropical oasis.

Just because you aren’t able to engage the services of David Tutera for your wedding, doesn’t mean that you can’t create your own fabulous day on a budget. Our resource list will be able to help you make your tropical wedding dreams come true!
