Why Fall Weddings are Best at the Beach

Over the years, glowing brides have moved their weddings out of the church and onto the beach. Beach weddings are great because the beauty of the coast provides a built-in venue that needs very little decoration to stun your guests. That means less planning, less cost, and less stress for the bride and groom. Late spring and summer are undoubtedly the most popular times of the year for a beach wedding, but if you’re getting married in the fall then a beach wedding should be at the top of your list! Great beach weather, gorgeous color palettes, and fun fall activities make a sandy ceremony the perfect fall wedding in Gulf Shores. Read on to discover all the reasons that fall weddings are best at the beach!

Why Choose a Fall Wedding in Gulf Shores?

Smaller Crowds

As we’ve said, beach weddings are popular, especially on white-sand beaches as beautiful as the ones on the Alabama Gulf Coast. Depending on the season, that can mean sharing your big day with holiday crowds and weekend beachgoers. But that’s the great thing about a fall beach wedding – the crowds are smaller, meaning you’ll be sure to get a great spot for your ceremony (and plenty of personal space to work on that pre-wedding tan.) And, low crowds mean quieter beaches and an intimate setting for your “I Do’s.” The experienced event team at The Beach Club Resort & Spa know exactly how to maximize fall and fewer crowds for your big day.

Gorgeous Weather for Fall Weddings in Gulf Shores

One of the best things about a fall beach wedding is the weather. Especially in late fall, the weather on Alabama’s beaches is still plenty warm enough that you can wear a beach-inspired gown. You also don’t have to worry about running makeup while you’re snapping those wedding party pics. Ceremonies at dusk are the most comfortable, and they’re made even better by the stunning sunset colors. Speaking of stunning colors…

Stunning Color Palettes

If your fall wedding is inspired by the vibrant colors of the season, then you’ll love placing them against a beautiful beach backdrop. Autumn colors like burnt orange, deep reds, and dark browns create a stunning contrast against the sand, making those wedding photos magazine worthy.
