Okay some of the "cons"…

autumn wedding Seattle
Rain. Rain. Go. Away.
While we hope you won’t let rain deter you from having an Autumn wedding, it's a possibility, and something you should consider when selecting your venue. No one wants to be rained out on their wedding day! There are however a lot of ways to work around the weather. Look at this couples fall Seattle wedding where it rains all the time! Just know that if you are set on hosting an outdoor wedding, then you need to be sure any out of town guest are aware of appropriate attire for the season. Plus, you may need to budget for tents or guest umbrellas too for your ceremony and reception.
Holiday Traffic Jam
You may also be dealing with the holidays. Whether you celebrate holidays or not, they can effect the planning of your wedding.  For example, this can be a more expensive time of year for out of town guests to travel. You’ll want to send them save-the-dates early to give them plenty of time to coordinate time off and to book their travel. You should also expect a few “no-shows” since it is a busy time of the year for people and they may not be able to take the extra time off for your wedding.

In case you couldn't tell...

We'd say the pros have it! Fall is an amazing time for your special day! With the rich colors, textures, and yummy flavors of the season, your guests will be swept away with the spirit of romance and festivity.
