The crisp weather has inspired us to find the best in fall centrepieces. Warm autumn colours and unique textures are some of the things that we love most about fall. Whether you choose bouquets of wheat and pine cones for your rustic-themed wedding or traditional floral arrangements in deep reds and oranges for your traditional affair, autumnal themes are warm and inviting when the temperatures outside start to dip.
You’re going to be wearing your engagement ring every day, so it should say something about you and your sense of style, right?

Check out our picks and decide if your engagement ring should be simple and chic or covered in bling!
Not huge on sweets? But, want to serve your guests something yummy to nibble on at the end of the evening? Trust us, there are plenty of delicious options out there. On Saturday, I had the pleasure of attending my cousin’s wedding, which was brimming with mouthwatering food from start to end. But, the kicker for me was definitely the home sliders and fries brought out just before midnight. It made quite the impression on guests (there was nary a soul who wasn’t lining up for seconds). And, for those that needed their sweet indulgence, the wedding cake was more than enough. For those of you looking for an alternate to the traditional sweets table, here’s 6 ideas worth considering:
