Fall is one of the most popular times to have a wedding. From crisp falling leaves to breathtaking colors and dependable weather, fall is a timeless constant for a stunning, memorable wedding.
With fall being such a popular time for weddings, October books up fast! Already at The Southerly we are fully booked for all Saturdays in October. But have no fear - alternatives are here. Rather than missing out on your perfect fall wedding, look to a September instead.
The month of September brings about soft scents of vanilla, cinnamon and pumpkin spice. The summer slowly comes to an end while fall is just beginning. With a September wedding, brides have the option of a pleasant outdoor or indoor ceremony and reception.
With an early September date chosen, you can lean towards more of a summer themed wedding. From bright shades of coral to little pops of yellow, an early September weekend can mirror summer vibes while still being appropriate.
In contrast, when choosing a later September date, you have the opportunity to plan a wedding with deep shades of bronzes, orange and red.
Julia’s Pro Tip: For a more summer feel, you can go with a coral and mint combo shown above! And for a more fall vibe, choosing deep shades of orange and red compliment each other perfectly with hints of bronze and gold.
While October is one of the driest months of the year, September offers a reliable weather forecast. In our Auburn-Opelika area, September is shown to have an average high temp of 84°F and an average low temp of 64°F. The weather is dry, cool and reliable - what more could a bride ask for?
So if you are leaning towards an early fall wedding or a late summer feel, September is your month! Contact The Southerly Warehouse to inquire about our available September dates here.
always more to come!
