Here in the South, the weather stays nice pretty late into the Fall which makes it feasible to have an outdoor wedding even in early November. I actually went to a friend’s wedding around this time last year (November 1st, to be exact) and it was 72 degrees – just perfect for their lakeside ceremony.
If you’re in the South, I think a wedding in a formal garden, filled with sculpted evergreens, stone statues and architectural details would be lovely and unexpected for a Fall wedding.

I had a really good mango the other day which is a rarity since good mangoes are hard to find in the US. It made me think of home (Barbados) and all the flavors, colors, scents and sounds of the West Indies: fresh fruit, colorful flowers year-round, warm sun and cool breezes.
There’s definitely more to the Caribbean than beaches and palm trees. Rather than the typical island wedding, I figured I would share another side of island style. In this case, an elegant wedding in the lush gardens of an old plantation house.

Even if getting married in an ancient city like Rome is out of the question (and the budget), recreating that old world feeling is still possible. Have a banquet-style feast at one long table, place flowers in mercury glass vessels and incorporate stone statues into the decór…

Ferns can introduce such lovely, delicate details to a wedding. I imagine an outdoor wedding incorporating several shades of green and dark brown wooden accents. Naturally beautiful.
