You’re getting married! Congratulations on your upcoming big day. What’s that? Your big day is coming up really soon? Say no more! A lot of couples get caught up in their dream event space to hold their wedding and sometimes that space is only available either a month of two from now or a decade or two from now. If you find yourself in the category of the former and need to plan your wedding in a hurry then these last minute fall wedding ideas are here to help!
1) 86 The Cake & Treat Yourself
The wedding cake has become the number one flagpole of all weddings. But what if it wasn’t? Wedding cakes have become so absurdly expensive and can often take weeks or even months for a baker to prepare and complete the cake for you. You need these desserts ready to go!
A good way to come in under your time limit, and definitely under your budget, is to take care of the cake yourself. Bake a tall cake at home- better yet, make it a couples activity between you and your husband-to-be. It’s a great way to put a more personal touch on your big day.
If baking a cake is out of range for you, you could always switch it up and have a table of home-baked cookies, or towers of cupcakes. The ideas are endless.
2) No Photographer? No Problem.
Photographers, especially the talented ones are hard to reserve on such a short notice. And if it’s on such a short notice, what you pay may double, or even triple in size.
I’ll be real with you for a minute; you want the pictures for your big day to look as special as possible but in actuality, all you really need are a nice collection of pictures to remember your wedding. Go down to the grocery and buy yourself a good chunk of disposable cameras and scatter them across the tables at your reception.
Your guests can take all of the photos for you, and all of it for less than $100!
3) Calendar Guest Book
A simple and easy touch for your special wedding day is the inclusion of a Calendar Guest Book. You can take the traditional method of placing a book somewhere in the reception for all of your guests to sign and replace it with a blank calendar for an entire year. Encourage your guests to find their birthdays and sign their name there. It’s a great way to make your guests feel more engaged as well as a really efficient way of remembering everyone’s birthday!
