An Affair to Remember…The Beginnings of Planning a Fall Wedding

My best friend and her boyfriend have finally set a timeline for their wedding plans, and as I have decided to become a wedding planner (and I am her maid of honor), she has asked me to help her start the planning process.  So far, all that has been decided is she wants a fall wedding, sometime between September and November.  She also knows she wants to get married in Central Park and have her reception at the Plaza Hotel.  And she wants her wedding colors to be copper and gold.  We’ve also decided the bridesmaids’ dresses will be long, considering it gets a bit chilly in New York during the latter part of the year.  Here’s so ideas we’ve come up with so far….

This is the dress she really likes for the bridemaids.

She also mentioned that she wants a sunflower bouquet.

I like this one because it has a variety of size for the sunflowers, if she wants a more monochromatic bouquet

This one is also great because the sunflowers are uniform in size, but it also brings in the fall berries.

Ideas I’ve come up with…..

If she wants to be literal about the fall theme, I think this arch would be a great backdrop for the ceremony.

The Willow arch is still a pretty literal approach, but not as cliché

I like this guest book for the theme and the fact that it ties in her wedding colors.

These centerpiece ideas are the same as the arches.  This first one would be the more obvious choice, while the other has the same concept with a different form of  execution.
