    Flowers never get outdated. Lots of red roses, maybe?

    instead of carving your names in the pumpkins (which could be rather tricky and time consuming) I suggest cutting just the tops off, clean them out, and put in a candle. If you cut the top small enough you can put a tealite in the top. You could also put red flowers in them.T Are you getting table linens? Go for all blue, as it will provide the best contrast with the orange/red. You can also get paper lanterns in both red/orange. A lot are battery operated if you don’t have electricity or enough outlets. They are fairly inexpensive. An idea for favors could be mini-picnic baskets filled with candy or whatever.

    white lights are good, make sure you have guests bundle up- sometimes Sept can be chilly

    shop craft stores for fall leaf garlands, get yards of tulle and drape it elegantly around the tent, use bunches of fall foliage for the end-chairs going down the aisle use blue ribbons to tie the chair foliage, and to tie the tulle to th tent. I would reconsider blue (if its an electric blue), and go with a lighter color blue instead. I would either go baby blue, or dark navy since your other colors are red and orange.

    search for fall weddings, or autumn weddings im sure you will get TONS of ideas! 🙂 good luck and congrats!!

    Hi, Go to http://www.churchbows.com and have them make you red, blue and orange wedding bows to hang. They are very inexpensive and will bring your colors out. They also will make all your bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages with the flowers you want. I suggest them to all my customers. Good Luck!
