Planning a Fall Wedding Day?
When many people think weddings they think summer, but the latest trend that seems to be picking up like crazy is having a fall wedding. If you’re from the Sioux Falls area then you know just how hot and miserable the summer days can be, but once fall hits the temps cool off and that can create an absolutely gorgeous day. Plus who wants to worry about feeling hot and sticky in a big gown or tuxedo, and especially how the humidity will affect your hair on one of the most important days of your life? This fall has been another great one for weather and it’s also been one of the busiest times for weddings here at the Sioux Falls Convention Center! The coolness the fall brings also brings absolutely gorgeous trees in all different colors—what a great, natural way to incorporate color into your theme! There are so many cool things you can do to decorate with nature. Sticks and branches have been on the rise for centerpiece ideas because they add an inexpensive touch of height to give your reception tables some dimension. You can leave them bare or hang things from them to add a little color. Other centerpiece ideas could be bigger logs strategically stacked and surrounded with our votive candles, or even pine cones can be utilized to fill up glass jars—the possibilities are practically endless! The Convention Center even has Fichus trees that are included in our rental packages, so you can use those to fill throughout your room and help tie everything together! Using nature and fall as your theme can be such a creative, inexpensive route to take when choosing how you want to host your big day. If you are worried about it not being elegant enough, a touch of up lighting, draping or some of our new crystal chandeliers can be just enough to bring that warm feeling into your room. Top it all off with fall themed desserts: pumpkin, pecan or caramel apple cheesecakes are fun, unique and delicious! Our chef can create customized fall menus just for you for the appetizers, entree and late night snacks as well! As popular as fall weddings are becoming, we’re already booking up fast for those dates in 2013 so please stop by or give us a call today to start planning your fall wedding!
