Autumn is the time to "fall" back in love with all of those wonderful things that symbolize the season. These include long walks with crisp, beautifully colored leaves under your feet, cozy campfires and s'mores, and once again enjoying flavors of pumpkin spice, apples, cinnamon, and more.
You can include elements like these if you are planning a fall wedding. Many of the gorgeous decorations you'll find in our online wedding store will also work perfectly for any other type of autumn gathering you would like to host beyond the wedding. Here are a few "fall-tastic ideas" to try!
Brilliant 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 plaid designs for a bit of texture.
WhereBridesGo.com offers freeze-dried rose petals in a wide variety of colors, including many of those listed above. 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 features a lot of natural colors as well, 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 fallen. Burlap accents in your wedding decor will bring this color palette "to the table," and lacy accents soften it up beautifully for a fabulous shabby chic feel.
Autumn is a wonderful time to be outside enjoying nature because it's not too hot and not too cold, but generally pleasant to be outdoors much of the time. Bring some of the outside in with nature-inspired decorations. Mason jars are also a nice touch for a rustic look.
Warm, Cozy Favors
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 ideas that we came up with to get you started. You will be inspired to imagine many more when you browse the gorgeous wedding decorations online at WhereBridesGo.com. As we mentioned before, many of the items you will discover can be brought back out and used every year after the wedding as well. Then you will have a seasonal reminder of your magnificent fall wedding each time that you re-use a table runner, blanket, or candle holder. What a sweet way to bring back those beautiful memories!
