Thanksgiving is less than a week away! And it’s the time of the year that brings family and friends together like no other time– aside from a wedding. So why not combine these two wonderful times of the year into one big celebration with a rustic Thanksgiving inspired wedding day?
A Feast for All
One of the best things about a Thanksgiving inspired wedding is the food – a delicious feast for you and your guests. Skip the chicken or beef and go with traditional Thanksgiving fare. Herb roasted turkey, buttermilk cornbread stuffing and all of the classic Thanksgiving sides. For dessert, opt for an assortment of pies and sweets with a special caramel topped cake for the two of you.
The Thanksgiving Table
Bringing rustic elements into your wedding theme will make it feel cozy and warm. Long wooden farm tables topped with greenery and florals will come alive with the soft glow of candles as the night progresses. Vintage silverware is perfect for your place settings, and rustic wooden signs or escort cards are a lovely way to greet each of your guests at their place.
Fall Inspired Favors
Thanksgiving is a time for food, so edible wedding favors are the perfect fit. Customized honey jars for each guest are a great takeaway, and sweet treats like pumpkin inspired brownie bites or cake pops will give each guest something to enjoy later in the evening. Or if you’re looking for something a little more tactile to give as a favor, a copper bottle opener is a gift that will be useful for years to come and will serve as a memento from your special day.
