Fall is all about embracing its elements -- the bold colors, the pretty setting and rich flavors. As the temperature drops, our taste buds get a craving for nostalgic cozy-autumn bites & sips.
Here is your guide to making the most of your fall wedding by indulging in all of its deliciousness.
The best way to set the vibe for your fall wedding is to give your guests a warm welcome with some hot and cold apple cider. From ceremony bars to boozy signature drinks, incorporating cider is a must.
Cozy Donut Favors
Add some fresh donuts to your cider station for even more autumn delight! Serve these at your ceremony to welcome guests, at cocktail hour or late at night with desserts. They can also make as great wedding favors!
Guten Tag, Oktoberfest
Oktoberfest is an awesome way to get into the fall spirit! Grab the autumn décor and complete your Oktoberfest station with pretzels and beer!
Everyone loves the taste of Thanksgiving, which is why this station is an absolute crowd-pleaser! Plus, if you want to stand out you'll definitely have guests talking about this for years to come. Think carved turkey, butternut squash shooters and apple pie bites. At Rock Island, we offer a Friendsgiving Station and passed Fall-On-A-Spoon on our cocktail menu in honor of our fellow Thanksgiving-food-lovers!
For dinner, go for an autumn-inspired salad if it's an option!
Whether you're serving pizza at cocktail hour or as a late night snack, you can't go wrong. It's warm, comforting and pleases everyone.
Cigar & Whiskey Bar
Having a cigar and whiskey bar is an awesome addition to a wedding anytime of the year. But there is something so cozy about it in the fall. Complete your fall wedding with this delightful treat!
