There’s something magical about fall, with changing leaves, crisp air, and the anticipation of Thanksgiving and the holidays tingling in our toes. In fact, fall is the perfect time to make your love official with a lovely, cozy, fall-inspired wedding! Infuse all of autumn’s best bits into your wedding reception with five of our favorite fall wedding ideas.
Festive party favors
A fall-themed wedding means an opportunity to provide fun, fall-themed favors for your loved ones. Give your chilly guests some warm fuzzies with a soft blanket, a tiny bottle of maple syrup, a fall-scented candle, or a little jar of preserves. We’ve also seen adorable mini pie boxes, complete with a thank-you note and a tiny fork!
Speaking of pies, fall is notorious for its many festive confections. We’ve seen brides swap their wedding cakes for three-tiered donut trays, or even choose their favorite pie to serve to their guests. If you still want a cake, consider a naked cake and adorn it with splashes of foliage, fresh fruit, and a berry or caramel drizzle for a touch of elegance. Don’t forget the drinks, too — keep your guests warm with hot apple cider, cocoa, and other seasonal beverages.
Warm wedding colors
Fall isn’t just about oranges and browns. For some gorgeous and warm fall wedding colors, consider choosing shades like terra cotta, mustard, gold, emerald, burgundy, or even teal. If you’re not sure how to pair these, look into some of these stunning color pairings for some quick inspiration: pumpkin and sage, emerald and pale pink, and plum and beige.
Rustic or family-style wedding
Fall reminds us of the coming holidays, and holidays are all about family. Make your guests feel right at home with rustic, traditional touches, like a family-style dinner, or decor with wood-grain patterns and lots of greenery. Some great rustic decor touches include barrels, lanterns, and flower baskets.
End-of-wedding fire pit
Fun, intimate, and warm, a fire pit is the perfect way to finish off the night. You can rent propane-powered fire pits for an easy way to warm up your guests. Cozy up with just your closest loved ones after other guests have said their goodbyes, or set up a DIY s’mores bar for all to enjoy. Don’t forget all the fixings!
