Autumn is a beautiful season for getting married. All kinds of beautiful wedding planning ideas can be inspired by focusing on some of the popular aspects of fall; brilliant colors, cozy campfires, the flavors of apples, pumpkins, and spices, and so much more.
The elements you love most about this season can be incorporated into your fall wedding decor. Today, WhereBridesGo.com is sharing some of our favorite things for a fall wedding. These are perfect for the couple getting a head start on planning a wedding next year or for some last minute ideas to put the finishing touches on weddings taking place this year.
Gorgeous Fall Colors
Some of the colors that come to mind when we think of fall are the oranges, reds, and yellows of the changing leaves. Pumpkins bring in the orange once again with a touch of deep green from the vines. This is also the perfect season to include cozy plaid designs for a bit of texture.
WhereBridesGo.com offers freeze-dried rose petals, as well as artificial rose petals, in a wide variety of colors. They look incredible scattered like confetti on tables, filling vases, and of course, down the aisle. Candles and unity ceremony sand are also excellent places to bring in a touch of fall color to your celebration.
Burlap & Lace
Fall brings to mind a lot of natural colors too, like the tan of a hay bale and the deep brown bark of the trees that is so much more evident now that the leaves are falling. Burlap accents in your wedding decor will bring this color palette to your decor beautifully and lacy accents soften it up for a lovely shabby-chic feel.
Autumn is a wonderful time to be outside enjoying nature. In most places the weather is not too hot and not too cold, but just right! Adding rustic elements from outside is perfect for fall wedding decorations. Natural items such as branches, logs, and leaves can be beautifully utilized and blend nicely with the colors we talked about earlier. This type of decor also blends wonderfully with the romantic shabby/chic look of burlap and lace.
The chill that comes along with fall allows us to bundle up and get cozy. Simulate the comfort of a campfire with beautifully lit candles all around the room. If you have access to an outdoor area for your wedding, go ahead and plan an actual campfire too!
Another nice touch is to have cozy throws in baskets available for guests to use if needed. You might even consider ordering enough so that everyone can take a blanket home as their wedding favor. They would look lovely waiting on each seat at the ceremony!
These are just a few fun ideas to get you started. When you browse the pages of our online wedding store, you'll find many, many more items to inspire you to create the wedding of your dreams, no matter what season you decide to get married in. Take a look around, find a few of your favorite things, and we'll pack them up and ship them straight to you. (And don't forget, in most cases shipping is absolutely free!)
