We've been posting a lot about Fall wedding tips, themes and ideas related to your Gilbert Fall wedding. From food to drinks, centerpieces to photography, in the past few weeks our focus has been solely on Fall wedding fun. 

Today, I'd like to tie it all together for you. I mean, you can only talk about Fall wedding ideas for so long, so let's finish it up with this one blog that pulls everything together. 

Best Drinks for Your Fall Wedding

It might not feel like it yet, but Fall is just around the corner, and while other brides are thinking about flowers and lighting, you're over here thinking about the open bar and what kind of signature Fall drinks you're going to have...

For today's wedding blog post, I thought we'd take a look at some of the best drinks for your Fall wedding in Gilbert here at Val Vista Lakes:

Apple Cider Sangria: This seems like a given for your Gilbert Fall wedding. This particular recipe we found on Pinterest calls for apples and pears. Heavenly! Serves 4-6 Ingredients 1 bottle (standard size) of pinot grigio 2 1/2 cups fresh apple cider, if you prefer sweeter use 3 1/2 cups 1 cup club soda 1/2 cup ginger brandy...

Apple, Pumpkin Beer Cocktails: I don't know what this is, but it sounds amazing...


Pumpkin Iced Beer: I just love this idea of turning a pumpkin into an ice cooler for beer or other drinks. You might need a big pumpkin, but it's definitely a unique addition for your Fall wedding...


Bailey's Pumpkin Spiced Punch: Hosting a party and need a drink recipe for a crowd? This Baileys Pumpkin Spice punch is for you. It’s an easy, deliciously sweet cocktail that’s perfect for all your fall and winter parties from a halloween bash to holiday potlucks. The sweet rim will be the sugar on top to a perfect evening! Recipe (serves 10) Mix 15oz. new Baileys Pumpkin spice, 15oz milk, 7.5oz. Bulleit bourbon, and vanilla extract to taste in a bowl. Make sugar rim with brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Serve over ice.


From Pumpkins to Pinecones, Fall Wedding Ideas


Fall Leaves: There is obviously nothing better, more suited for Fall, then Fall leaves. Take a day trip up north and grab some in the next few weeks!

Pinecones: While you're in Flagstaff grabbing some of those beautiful Fall leaves for your wedding, don't forget to collect pinecones as well. 

Fall Blankets: Everyone loves snuggling up with a comfy blanket made of soft cotten or flannel. Consider adding blankets to your Gilbert Fall wedding. 

Twinkly Lights: Nothing says the holidays like twinkle lights. 

Mason Jars: Fall is a great time to incorporate mason jars into your Gilbert wedding. 

Burlap Backdrops: I love burlap accents during the Fall, and adding embroidered burlap to your tables or burlap backdrops to photo areas and the ceremony site make for great Fall wedding additions. 

Apple Cider: How about some popcorn, donuts and apple cider? Doesn't it just scream sitting by the fire during Fall?

Pumpkins: Of course, you can't forget about adding some pumpkins to your Gilbert Fall wedding.

There are dozens of ways to make your Fall wedding fit the season. When's your wedding?
