You’ve put away your giant flamingo pool float, you're slowly making the transition from mojitos to mulled wine, and your bridal party is donning all of their beloved scarves. Fall is finally here. For a bride looking to embrace the autumn season for all of her pre-wedding events (bachelorette party, engagement party, rehearsal dinner, etc.), we got some advice from the experts on how to execute an fall-centric party.
For an engagement party full of bountiful fall cuisine, we sought advice from some of the wedding industry’s elite to put together a menu (and cocktail menu!) that’s both charming and unique. Garnishes that highlight harvest favorites like sliced apples, cinnamon sticks, and festive herbs make for extra cozy pre-dinner drink options. Seasonal picks that spotlight your event’s location make for a menu that’s even more personal. We love the idea of miniature fried chicken and waffles for a Southern soirée, or apple cider doughnuts for an upstate gathering. Nothing says delicious like fork-free favorites, after all!
We gathered an assortment of food and cocktails that will make your fall engagement party completely enchanting.
