Got a fall-themed wedding to plan for? Not sure how to embrace the season in all its glory into your special day? With vibrant colours, cooler temperatures, and seasonal favourites (like pumpkin everything!), there are countless ways to maximize your love for the autumn. To help you, we’ve gathered our top ideas to incorporate into your fall wedding. Here they are!
Fall Table Dressings
Of course, with a fall-themed wedding, the table dressings have to be on point. And with so much fresh produce and flowers to choose from, the options are plentiful. If you enjoy a bright and earthy mixture of colours, consider combining wood slices, candles, gourds, burlap, and miniature pumpkins together to create the ultimate fall-theme table dressing. Alternatively, for those who prefer a more muted pallet, you could purchase or even paint similar table dressings, combining white pumpkins, gourds, and candles for a chic and modern look instead.
Rustic Theme Signage
The rustic theme goes hand-in-hand with the fall time. The warmth and richness of wood mixed with hues of deep purple, forest green, burnt orange, reds, and yellows can create a dazzling display throughout your venue. And one unique way to add some rustic “flavours” into your wedding is by creating handmade wooden signage. These are more popular than ever, especially since they’re a fun and simple DIY project. All you need is some refurbished wood, paint and an inspiration sentiment to add.
Hot Cider & Hot Chocolate Bar
The autumn season is all about cozying up with a hot cup of something to keep you warm and toasty, like hot apple cider and hot chocolate. So why not give your guests something they’ll really enjoy and appreciate while you’re off getting photos taken? Cider and hot chocolate bar is the perfect way to offer something seasonal and unique for refreshments that will keep your guests cozy with something sweet and delicious. You could even get creative and add some marshmallows, cinnamon sticks and pumpkin spice for extra garnishing.
One of the best ways to incorporate fall into your wedding day is with your flowers. Think about the combinations of colours that you love most about this time of year. It’s also helpful to sift through magazines or online to get ideas of what you and your partner enjoy. Then talk to your florist about combining your favourite seasonal foliage into your arrangements.
Pumpkin Placement Holders
If you’re as obsessed with pumpkins as many of us are during this season, you can use miniature pumpkins to help greet your guests and direct them to their assigned seats. All you need to do is slice the stem just a tad and attach seating cards to them for a delightful fall-esque display.
