Fall Wedding Theme Ideas and Inspirations

Fall weddings are colorful, welcoming affairs that guests remember for a lifetime. Natural elements make perfect motifs to carry from your save-the-dates straight through to beautiful fall wedding favors. With reds, browns, gold and greens to choose from, it’s not hard to find a palette to inspire your autumn wedding theme selections.

Fall flowers offer great hues and textures – solid color and variegated mums, roses and calla lilies in a range of red and orange, and berries in various shades of green, brown and red combine to make natural looking, yet dramatic bouquets and centerpieces. Candlelight offers elegance and sparkle to the crisp early evenings of fall, so plan to include lots of votives and lanterns. Think outside the box – use mason jars as candle holders and mini-pumpkins in white or orange as place card holders. You can even consider a fall theme wedding unity candle.

The bounty of the annual harvest is the perfect inspiration for fall weddings. Apples, gourds and even the fields of corn and squash can be incorporated in everything from rich seasonal wedding menus to your reception décor. You might ask your chef to warm your wedding guests with a spicy pumpkin puree, serve a good old-fashioned corn pudding or include seasonal squash alongside your entrées. Delight the child in every guest’s heart with favors filled with candy corn, and serve hot apple cider with real cinnamon sticks.

Specialty cocktails in fall should be spicy and warming. Incorporate the essence of apples, nutmeg, pears and cranberries into your own personal favorite concoctions. Order coffee favors in festive fall packaging.

It’s the season for “Falling in Love” and the annual scattering of leaves is a rich theme for your celebration. Choose invitations that feature the motif, or the Fallen Leaf Cake Topper , leaf-shaped cookie cutter favors and tiny leaf-embellished votive candles.

Autumn is “Alluring” in bronze – a very sophisticated hue that is complemented beautifully by ivory. Advantage Bridal features fall wedding accessories , including an entire “Bronze Elegance” collection with accessories including a guest book and pen set, flower girl basket and ring bearer pillow and a beautiful garter. The hardest part of planning your fall wedding will be choosing from all of the gorgeous autumn wedding accessories and invitation options!
