Fall Wedding Ideas We Are Loving Right Now

By:

Fall is the season for love. In fact, over a third of Bride & Blossom’s weddings take place between September and November. With its rich palette of colors, golden light, and chill in the air perfect for cuddling, fall radiates romantic bliss.

The bride planning a wedding this time of year has much to look forward to when it comes to creative décor and styling. While the availability of flowers is limited, the season offers a bounty of fruits and vegetables that look stunning in table centerpieces. The more candles adorning a tablescape or aisle the better. And we could go on and on about the wonderful food and drinks this time of year brings. It’s all about comfort food right now, and incorporating a pumpkin pie and apple cider cocktail into a wedding menu will leave guests full and happy.

Whether your style is rustic chic, sophisticated, or modern, here are stunning décor ideas to make your fall wedding unforgettable.

 

Burgundy & Gold Wedding Invitations

One of the first items on your to-do list is picking out wedding invitations. The combination of burgundy and gold is romantic and captures the warm beauty of the season.

Signature Cocktails

Apple cider is a favorite fall beverage Serve guests a signature cocktail that embraces the flavors of the season such as a warming drink that pairs bourbon with apple cider. For a lighter libation, choose the aptly named “Fall All Over” made with gin, cider, and lemon.

Table Décor

There’s a lot of room for creative play when it comes to fall wedding table décor. In addition to the most obvious feature, pumpkins, use natural elements such as pine cones, berries, leaves, greenery, pines, and branches in centerpieces and arrangements. Gilded votives and candles of every style cast an inviting, intimate mood for guests to enjoy. Accent displays with an in-season flower such as roses, which work to soften the décor by adding a touch of color and delicateness.

Minimalist With Subtle Color

Vibrant fall colors are not for everyone, especially for an occasion like a wedding. If you share this same view, think about incorporating fall accents that are minimalist in style and neutral in color. A monochrome table arrangement featuring white pumpkins, naturally-shed antlers, dried hydrangea, and votive candles is contemporary, yet organic. A centerpiece featuring a cylinder vase filled with pinecones and Manzanita branches with hanging votives casts and enchanted mood. A runner made of pumpkins in shades of blue, white gold and orange crates a modern rustic look. Or do something totally unexpected and place white baby pumpkins and hydrangea in vintage silver vessels!

Wedding Arch & Chuppah

There’s no better season to celebrate nature’s festive beauty than autumn. Birch and expressive Manzanita branches provide a great foundation for the wedding arch and chuppah. Decorate the ceremonial structure with lush blooms in shades ranging from burgundy, berry, orange, and marigold to blush, ivory, and cream. Finish with verdant greenery such as moss, ferns, and pines.

It’s all in the details

Ask any good wedding planner and they will tell you it’s the small, often surprising details that make a wedding really stand out. Ceremony décor accents such as a candlelit aisle or barrel filled with a voluminous display of blooms are sure to impress. A loose and natural floral garland in burgundy and blush sets a scene of autumnal romance.
