What Should I Wear To A Pumpkin Patch?
Your level of bundled up differs based on where you live and how cold it actually gets in the fall. But regardless of how many layers you’ll have to add over it, the perfect base layer for a pumpkin patch visit is simple: your favorite fall outfit.
Jeans or leggings, a sweater or long sleeve top, or ditch the two-piece outfit completely and go with a dress.
However you need to bundle from there is again dependent on your location, but overall, you’re set! If you feel like changing it up a bit, overalls, a jumpsuit, or a matching set can be super cute as well! With a cardigan, denim jacket, or pea coat over it, it’s the picture perfect fall outfit for your pumpkin patch visit.
What Are The Best Shoes For A Pumpkin Patch?
The terrain at every pumpkin patch is a little different, but you can always bank on it being outdoors and you can almost guarantee that it’s going to be a little soft at least, if not even a little muddy.
Even if you’re not experiencing a lot of rain where you are, you might be seeing some soft dirt and mud anyway from the watering process of all of the plants and pumpkins.
Most patches have pumpkins removed from their vines to create all the set ups and build all of the visuals, so they won’t be getting watered. But if they have other plants and florals to add to the decor, they could be bringing a hose in before the guests arrive.
Either way, you’ll want to be prepared for wet grass. Wear leather shoes, whether that’s the leather sneakers or leather boots, unless you’ve seen the patch and know it’s dry ground!
Break into the suede game if you’re confident that you won’t be staining them with the mud splashes around the grounds.
Tip: sometimes I look through the Instagram of the patch, and look at their tagged photos. Sometimes this can answer a lot of questions you have about a venue of any sort. Looking through to see what shoes others wore and if they look like they’re getting dirty at all is a good decision maker for me!
How To Get A Great Photo At A Pumpkin Patch
Getting photos somewhere that is literally set up to be photogenic can still be a little difficult if you don’t plan accordingly. The best thing you can do is to plan your timing. This will help with both lighting and crowd control.
Going earlier or later in the day will give you the most lovely light. Going when the sun is more overhead is going to give you shadows and harsh sun spots, but early light is soft and later light is golden.
The crowds also will get busier the longer the day goes on, making it more difficult to snap the picture you want without people in the background or waiting in line impatiently for their turn on the pumpkin throne.
Wearing an outfit you love will always make your photos significantly more fun, so putting a lot of time into outfit planning will make quick snap shots so much better.
