If you are planning a Fall Wedding, embrace the season by incorporating elements of Autumn into all aspects of your day.

  1. Take advantage of the cool weather, dry season and colorful fall foliage by having your wedding at a park, orchard, vineyard, farm, ranch, in a barn or at a historic inn or mansion.
  2. If you opt for an indoor setting, choose a venue with a view of Autumn colors and fall foliage or countryside.
  3. Add a fall motif such as an acorn or maple leaf to your invitations, programs, and menus. Consider using metallic rust ink colors or inks in traditional fall colors.
  4. Hang your first initials on autumn colored pretty ribbon on the front doors to the church or reception or adorn doors with autumn wreaths. Create your monogram on a pumpkin.
  5. Incorporate rich tones like burnt orange, burgundy, chocolate brown and deep reds. Add a dash of metallic’s – gold, copper and bronze for glamour and elegance. Mix metallic touches on the table for dinner ware.
  6. Incorporate a mixture of seasonal flowers such as rich colored calla lilies, deep red roses, dahlias, sunflowers, mum’s and include lots of greenery and berries. Use hollowed pumpkins as vases.
  7. Have your flower girl toss fall colored leaves or acorns instead of flower petals.
  8. Add textures such as velvet, satin and overlays.
  9. Use natural décor such as twigs, branches, leaves, acorns, pumpkins, gourds and sprays of wheat.
  10. Create centerpieces with autumn fruits such as figs, pomegranates, pears, apples, and cranberries.

  1. Write guest’s names on mini pumpkins or purchase large fall leaves from the craft store.
  2. For the menu include traditional fall favorites such as squash soup, roasted turkey, tenderloin, mashed potatoes, corn bread muffins, green beans, and honey glazed carrots. Serve traditional fare elegantly by focusing on presentation. An idea is serving soup in hallowed out pumpkins.
  3. Serve a dark chocolate fondant wedding cake decorated with fresh or marzipan fruits and berries.
  4. Dim the lights and use lots of thick pillar candles wrapped in ribbon and draped in crystals. Accent the scene with antique broaches, crystal candelabras and stemware.
  5. Hang rustic lanterns on the tree’s surrounding the event.
  6. Pumpkin muffins tied in cellophane bags with ribbon would make great favors. Guest’s can enjoy the muffin the next morning for breakfast.
  7. Use Harvest chocolates such as leaves and acorns in individual boxes tied with ribbon as favors.
  8. Send your guests home with a candy gift bag. Candy bar with candy corn, jelly bean autumn mix, Reese’s pieces candy, chocolate shaped autumn leaves, candy pumpkins, and caramels.
  9. Make your own favors of sugar coated spiced nuts.
  10. Homemade fudge is a delicious fall treat for wedding guests.
  11. Favors such as Autumn scented candles will fill your guests homes with a scented memory of your wedding day for days/weeks to follow.
  12. For the bride’s dress, think cream or off-white with antique or vintage lace. Make a statement in dramatic jewelry.
  13. Make up: lips in light plum, smoky or neutral eyes, mauve cheeks and a light bronzer.
  14. Bridesmaids: Select rich colors and fabrics such as pomegranate or forest green. Purchase elegant wraps incase the weather is chilly.
  15. Ride off into the sunset on the back of a hay wagon or rustic horse drawn carriage.
