Autumn weddings are underrated. The fear of bad weather and chilly temperatures scares many couples away from celebrating their nuptials at a time when nature is at its most glorious, but fall weddings can be just as carefree, relaxing, and beautiful as summer ceremonies. Here at Hacienda Sarria, we have the experience and knowledge to help you have the wedding of your dreams this fall.
The trick to making the most out of your fall wedding is to embrace the season. Don’t try to dress up your October wedding with summer florals and bright, vibrant colours as it will clash with your surroundings. Plus, finding food and flowers that are in season will be less of a strain on your wallet!
Here’s how to make the most out of your fall wedding:
Embrace Seasonal Colours
When we say the words “fall colours,” we’re not talking about the flashy artificial yellows and oranges of Halloween décor and candy corn; fall colours are muted, subtle, and earthy. Autumn offers an expansive palette that when combined, looks anything but spooky. Consider all the colour inspiration you have at your disposal: autumnal leaves, fall harvests, even seasonal blooms!
Try these fool-proof colour combinations:
- Jewel tones
- Shades of berry
- Gold and burgundy
- Emerald, sage, and ivory
- Shades of subtle orange mixed with creams
- Dusty rose, cranberry, and sage
Bring the Harvest to the Table
The menu options at a fall wedding are endless. As the most bountiful time of year, you won’t have any trouble finding delicious meals made with farm-fresh ingredients. No matter what time of year you choose to reserve your wedding at Hacienda Sarria, all of our wedding packages include butlered hors d'oeuvres, a three-course plated dinner menu, and a full range of bar services.
Our professional culinary team knows a thing or two about using fresh ingredients. The Hacienda Sarria Market Garden is our community initiative designed to inspire our neighbours to learn more about food production. Our Market Garden is also part of our community-supported agriculture (CSA) program that delivers fresh, seasonal ingredients to our customers. With so much access to fresh produce, we guarantee that our menu tastings will make you a firm believer in fall weddings.

Plan for Bad Weather
There’s no denying that fall weather can be unpredictable. A bright, crisp, even summery day can dramatically transform with arctic winds and heavy rain. We can’t control the weather, but we can prepare for it.
Are you planning an outdoor ceremony? Here are some fun and festive ways to make sure your guests stay comfortable:
- Invest in warm woollen blankets to share
- Rent an outdoor heater
- Provide hot drinks for the ceremony
If your wedding is scheduled in late fall, you may also want to make a plan B for an indoor ceremony in case it starts to snow.
