If you’re considering tying the knot in the beautiful state of Texas, you’re in for a real treat. Texas offers a diverse range of climates and landscapes throughout the year, making it an ideal wedding destination. While every season has its charm, there’s something truly magical about saying “I do” during the fall in the Lone Star State. Let’s talk about why we love fall weddings and what we think is the best month to get married in Texas.

The Appeal of a Texas Fall Wedding

  1. Perfect Weather: Fall in Texas is marked by pleasant temperatures, making it the Goldilocks season for outdoor ceremonies and receptions. You’ll find that the scorching summer heat has mellowed out, and the winter chill has yet to set in. This means you and your guests can comfortably enjoy your special day under the warm Texan sun or a crisp, starlit sky. When it comes to the best month to get married in Texas, we considered a lot of factors, but weather is definitely at the top of our list. That’s why we think October is the winner here. While the weather usually starts to cool down in October, it’s not too chilly, so it’s the perfect time to enjoy the beautiful Texas scenery.
  2. Stunning Scenery: Speaking of scenery, Texas truly shines in the fall. The landscape transforms into a breathtaking palette of warm, earthy colors. Whether you’re dreaming of an elegant wedding in Dallas or a rustic celebration in the Hill Country, the natural beauty will set the stage for unforgettable moments. October is really when the leaves start to turn in Texas which is another reason why we love an October wedding.
  3. More Flexibility: With fall being the most popular time of year for weddings in Texas, you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to venues and vendors. However, make sure to book early, as the demand for fall weddings is high.
  4. A Hint of Romance: There’s an undeniable sense of romance in the air during fall. September still feels like summer most of the time, so October is when fall truly starts to set in. The gentle rustle of leaves, the cozy warmth of bonfires, and the soft glow of fairy lights all contribute to an intimate and enchanting atmosphere that’s perfect for a wedding.

Planning Your Texas Fall Wedding

If you’ve decided that you want a fall wedding, here are some things to consider when planning your wedding. 

  • Color Palette: Embrace the rich, autumnal colors in your wedding decor, from deep burgundies to warm oranges and rustic browns. While these colors work in other seasons, they’re truly breathtaking during this time of year.
  • Venue Choices: Texas offers a wide array of venue options. You can opt for a charming barn wedding outside DFW, a vineyard celebration in Fredericksburg, or an elegant urban soiree in Dallas. There are more options in the fall as you can embrace the venue’s outdoor areas more than you could in other seasons.
  • Attire: Choose attire that complements the season, like long-sleeved gowns for brides and warm-toned accessories for the groom and bridal party. Again, you can make almost look work for a fall wedding, but why not choose attire that coordinates with the season?
  • Photography: The fall foliage provides a stunning backdrop for your wedding photos. Make sure to schedule a romantic sunset shoot in a grassy field or in front of trees with autumn leaves.
