Whether you live in a seasonal climate or not, you can channel the colors, atmosphere, and certain magic of autumn into your fall wedding. Fall styling can easily be casual or formal, rustic or modern; it truly lends endless opportunities to decorate your wedding in the style and feel you love most. Infuse some fall inspiration into your big day, and be sure to include some unique touches that not every fall bride will have thought of.
Apple Bin Escort Cards
Fill either a rustic, wood basket or a modern, clean-lined bin wrapped with decorative paper to hold a bountiful amount of fresh apples from a local farm. Attach the hand-calligraphy escort cards to sticks and nestle them into the apples for a classic and fresh escort card display.
Fall leafs don’t all have to be red, orange, or yellow. Take inspiration from the natural shape of the leaf and incorporate it into name tags that are elegantly tied to each napkin with a silk ribbon.
Bring the natural textures and colors of the outdoors in for your fall wedding. Some ideas include moss-filled glass ring boxes for lovely photos, and moss-filled glass terrariums decorating tables set amongst your décor.
It seems like everyone is including their monogram into their wedding décor these days. But stenciled onto their signature cocktail? That’s something your guests surely haven’t seen at every wedding! On whatever cocktail you’re serving, have the bartender stencil on your initials using seasonal spices of cinnamon, ground espresso beans, and edible gold.
One thing that everyone looks forward to in the fall is late nights snuggled on the couch with a cup of cider and a favorite, cozy blanket. Infuse the comfort of fall into your wedding by incorporating soft fabrics; throw a plush blanket on the love seat in your lounge area, or wear velvet-covered heals in a soft shade, or a fall-inspired jewel tone.
Put a Wreath On It
The perfect seasonal touch at your wedding will be infusing the warm ambiance of fall with a genuine foliage and flower wreath on an entry way, and hung from tables or decorative mirrors.
Fiery Accent Jewelry
If your engagement ring is more of the traditional style, complement your ensemble and nod to the beautiful colors of autumn leaves with accent jewelry in fiery red, pumpkin orange, and gold.
Fall Harvest Bounty
The natural hues of fall are something you definitely want to incorporate into your wedding. Use seasonal farmer’s market finds like grapes, apples, pears, figs, squash, and greens into your center pieces. Place them in a structured heap inside wood or metallic goblets.
The Season of Giving
Fall is all about reaping the seeds that were sewn in the spring and summer, and enjoying the bounty of the harvest. Channel this seasonal feeling of giving into your wedding by offering guests a dessert table filled with various fall-inspired treats, like apple crumble, pumpkin pie, and chocolate caramel bars.
At your ceremony, offer guests some hot and cold apple cider to sip on to get inspired by fall and intrigued at what’s to come at your reception. They will love the refreshment and bold taste of flavor.
Hints of Foliage
Take some cues from Mother Nature and incorporate some fall greenery into your wedding by tying some foliage to the wedding programs, menus, and with swags of garlands on tables.
One of the most common items to decorate with for fall are pumpkins. People may expect to see some at your fall wedding, but that doesn’t mean you have to go overboard. Keep it simple and selective with the pumpkins, and incorporate a few with your initials carved into them for an elegant display that doesn’t make your reception feel like a pumpkin patch.
None of these fall-inspired wedding details are too overly autumn. They certainly channel the feel and colors of this romantic season, but offer plenty of ways to make them special for you. Use a few of these ideas in your ceremony and reception and create an atmosphere that infuses the perfect amount of fall that feels classy and elegant.
