If you’re planning a wedding or other occasion for fall, you’re in luck. The beautiful colors found in nature are a perfect complement to virtually any theme, and the crisp weather outside makes your event feel cozy. Plus, there are a lot of unique and interesting things you can do with design and décor to make your event stunning. Here are some of our favorite fall wedding ideas.

1) Draw Inspiration from Outdoors

Certain fabrics can mimic the look of tree bark, and when accented with dark, shimmering charger plates and fresh, green centerpieces, your guests will feel as though they’ve stepped into a lush forest. Use luxe materials and incorporate the shades of the season to make the event feel opulent.

2) Have Your Flower Girl Spread Fall Leaves

Continuing the outdoor theme, have the flower girl at your wedding leave a trail of multicolored fallen leaves instead of flower petals. It’s a unique twist on an old tradition, and one that’s perfect for a fall wedding.

3) Create a Fall-Themed Pie Tower

If you’d prefer a non-cake dessert, this idea is right up your alley. Serve miniature pies instead, and set them up on a tiered stand similar to how a tiered cake would look. Some options to consider can include:

  • Apple
  • Pumpkin
  • Pecan
  • Sweet potato
  • Pear-cranberry

This way, you can feature the flavors of the season without sacrificing the dessert table.

4) Feature Bright Green Linen

Fall colors are usually more neutral shades of brown, gold, yellow, and orange, but using bright green linen can brighten up your event if you’re worried about it looking too rustic. Pair deep copper tablecloths with orange or copper chargers, and accent them with green napkins. This provides a cohesive look that’s still very autumnal.

5) Use Pumpkins In Place of Vases for Centerpieces

Cut stems a bit shorter and place your floral arrangements in small pumpkins for an extra fall-like detail at your wedding. This is a little cutesy, but at the right event, it’ll fit right in. You can also, should you feel a bit more ambitious, carve you and your spouse-to-be’s initials into pumpkins and use them as lanterns located around your venue and table linens
