An autumn wedding can be a vibrant and exciting occasion. The added element of the fall season is the perfect backdrop to delight both the happy couple and the guests. If you are planning to get married in autumn, consider the following tips for a day to be remembered.

4 Fall Inspired Wedding Ideas For A Picturesque Wedding

  1. Harvest-Inspired

Celebrating the harvest is an ideal companion topic for a wedding. After all, this day is the result of time spent sowing the seeds of your love. To beautifully adorn your reception with a harvest theme, you might display centerpieces of wicker baskets filled with fall produce or serve apple cider and cider-champagne cocktails with dinner. Be sure to incorporate some autumn flowers into your setting. You could fill vases and request bouquets with asters, mums, and sweet autumn clematis.  

  1. Deep Jewel Tones

Jewel tones are lovely for a wedding at any time of year, but they are especially appropriate in the fall. When you plan a day with this theme, think of red garnet, sparkling sapphire, and brilliant amber. The bridesmaids and groomsmen could wear gowns and suits in these hues for a look that will flatter anyone. On the tables, burn white taper candles in holders colored in gorgeous jewel tones. The groom could wear a dark suit with a tie and vest in deep blue, burgundy, or emerald green.  

  1. Fall Leaves

If you want to instantly remind your guests that fall is in the air, liven up the day with accents of autumn leaves. Your centerpieces might be made with leaves of red, gold, brown, and green. The bride and her attendants could wear headdresses made of real or fabric leaves. You may also wish to spray-paint garlands of leaves in gold, for an elegant accent that is still reminiscent of the season.

  1. Stylish Halloween

As many adult revelers know, Halloween is not just a holiday for children! You can create a Halloween event that will bring smiles to guests of all ages. Make sure that you provide plenty of holiday treats for the little ones, of course. You might also want to offer fun cocktails to the adults in attendance, such as a “witches’ brew” of cranberry juice, pineapple juice, and rum. The bride could wear dramatic makeup and carry a bouquet with roses in the deepest, darkest shade of red.
