Fall Wedding Inspirations and Tips

Fall wedding boardAs we enter into the month of September with summer closing down, we can be excited about at least one thing: Fall weddings are gorgeous! With fall weddings you can use rich and warm colors. A step in the rustic direction -which is a very popular trend – is never a wrong move in the fall. Plus, it is the season of change, making it the perfect choice for a wedding.

Fall Wedding Flowers

With fall weddings, your flowers can be bigger and darker with natural tones taking the lead. This is, however, a season where those popular succulent flower choices look a little less at home.

The desired look or feeling is comparable to how you would feel looking up into the bronze and gold leaves -with that hint of green – watching the sunlight trickle through. Rich reds, purples, and oranges of the burnt orange variety are great color choices when using those changing leaves as an inspiration. Also, when deciding on your wedding colors,  keep in mind that gold accents will amp up this season’s natural beauty.

For your wedding accessories, items like burlap table runners, wedding sparklers, and rustic wedding cake toppers will really fit into this season. If you are wanting to do a unity candle or sand vase as part of your ceremony, for fall, the candle is more ideal. Also, leaf designs done right can really make your fall wedding look absolutely perfect; you probably just don’t want everything to have that big maple leaf on it!

Navy, Gold, and Silver: An Elegant Wedding Theme

Wedding ColorsHave you been dreaming of your wedding since you were just a little kid? Have you pictured chandeliers, fresh flowers, a full course meal, and pulling out all the wedding traditions? If this is you, then you deserve and should strive for an elegant traditional wedding. Navy, gold, and silver on their own push a wedding in a more decadent direction, but together, they are a force to be reckoned with.

What is more, is that you can manipulate this color scheme for any wedding season. Navy is a dark color, but that doesn’t mean it has to be avoided in the spring and summer. As demonstrated in the picture above with the peacock feather, you can add splashes of other bright colors and light colors to switch up the tone. This allows you some wiggle room, but keeps you in the classy zone.

Gold and silver work great together as traditional colors, but as you mix and match metals and tones, you can really create a contemporary style.  And remember, contemporary doesn’t always mean casual. You can even put an elegant twist on the fun emerging trends like photo booths with backgrounds like the one in the above collage (upper right!). Furthermore, you can keep in classy, while adding things that are unique to you and your groom, like accessorizing your canine with a navy scarf to join your bridal party. The key is the small touches.

Truly, this color scheme cannot go wrong. It can be manipulated into creating a wide range of atmospheres, while still keeping its elegant core.

Be sure to not only check out the wedding accessories in this color theme collage, but also our other unique wedding accessories here at!!

Return Policies for Wedding Accessories

As you go about your wedding day shopping you may be finding that wedding shops have tight return policies. It may be frustrating, but for wedding stores to stay open and provide you with all the wonderful wedding accessories and needs, it is a necessity.

Avoid the Returns Headache

When you make a purchase on – or any wedding accessory store – be sure to read through the return policy. Return policies may vary, but in the wedding industry, you can expect a few consistencies.

  • Wedding Date is Too Late. Most places, including Wedding Collectibles, will not allow returns past your wedding date. Doing so is like encouraging shoppers to keep the tags on their dresses and return them after they have used them.
  • Quick Turn Around. Along side not allowing returns after the wedding date, a lot of shops will have a small window for you to initiate your return. Wedding Collectibles allows returns within 5 days of receipt. So once you receive your product, open it, inspect it, and either keep it or return it.
  • Personalized Items are Non-refundable/returnable. If you have put your initials or name on your product, it cannot be resold, so it cannot be returned. However, a lot of shops – not just wedding, but any store with personalized items – returns are allowed if there is an error that the store made. It wouldn’t exactly be fare for us to mess up your order and not fix it, just as it is not fair for us to take responsibility for any typos entered by the customer. Always review, triple check, any personalization.

While these are likely consistencies, be sure to review the return policies of any store you buy from, as they may differ. To view Wedding Collectible’s full return policy click here.


Summer Wedding Inspiration Boards

Summer Wedding Inspiration Boards

Wedding inspiration boards are the bread and butter for any wedding day dreamer and the newly engaged. Pulling together an inspiration board is one of the first steps in wedding planning because it helps you establish what it is you want for your wedding. Visuals are often the best way to translate what you want to wedding planners and family. Inspiration boards can be made with the help of sites like Pinterest or from your own browsing. I would recommend not just browsing Google images because you are likely to find great images without links to the actual product or way of making it happen. Instead, check out wedding shops and stores or Pinterest where you can know where to find the things your like, that way you can make your inspiration your reality. Below are two sample summer wedding inspiration boards with products from Wedding Collectibles.

Summer Wedding


The above summer wedding is based on more of a fun summer festival theme. The suggested colors would be red, light orange, and light green (like the fruit!). The cute mr. and mrs. toasting glasses, burlap, kissing booth photo backdrop, and sparklers bring in that summer excitement and warmth; all of which can be found right here at Wedding Collectibles.

summer wedding This summer wedding is inspired by a beach theme. The suggested colors would be light blue with pops or red or another vibrant color. We absolutely love the heart sand vase with toasting glasses and the cute anchor photo backdrop. The suitcase card box adds another element of summer travel and adventure. All together, they create a unique and beautiful beach summer wedding.

Beach Wedding

Their California wedding was styled simply but with precise elegance. Her colors were navy, peach and creme. She decided on these colors because she desperately wanted a bright wedding, but didn’t want to use summer colors during the fall. So she used the navy to bring in a deeper tone and allow the peach to pop out. She, Taylor, their relationship and their wedding are absolutely breathtaking.
