I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday with family and friends. It’s such a nice reminder to slow down and be grateful for all that you have (like that handsome groom of yours!). When it comes to planning a wedding this time of year, there’s no need to be so literal with fall’s burnt orange, brown, and yellow. Instead, here are some beautiful ideas for a glam yet rustic seasonal wedding in tones of gold, cream and bronze. White pumpkins are such a versatile decoration piece that you could do so much with: think place cards, centerpieces, menu holders… And how fun would it be to throw in some extra details like a smore or hot chocolate bar? Add in soft blankets for guests to keep warm and cozy up to your new husband by a fire pit. Happy thanksgiving brides and happy panning!
