If you’re planning a fall wedding, then you’ll need some great decorating ideas. Luckily, the autumn season lends itself to romantic decor in deep, gorgeous tones such as wine, eggplant, burgundy, emerald, pumpkin and russet. Read on for our fall wedding decorating ideas that can help you create the perfect backdrop for your special day.
When it comes to decorating for a fall wedding, think about reflecting the majesty of the nature around you. Boughs of foliage, clusters of grapes, decorative pumpkins and beautiful fall flowers combine to create a magical look that’s rich and romantic. If you haven’t chosen your wedding colors yet, there are a variety of great combinations that look fantastic in fall. Try balloons, streamers and accents in shades of gold and ivory, or go conservative yet stunning with pale periwinkle combined with deep chocolate brown. Echo your wedding colors in not only the streamers and balloons, but the table centerpieces and even your wedding cake.
Speaking of centerpieces, there are many different fall themed choices you can use to beautify your wedding table. Try decorative gourds in attractive baskets adorned with shimmery ribbon. Or, go for a crystal bowl filled with water and floating candles in autumn hued colors. Miniature cornucopias filled with wax fruit and silk flowers are also stunning centerpieces for any wedding table. And if you want something especially creative, why not try filling hollowed out pumpkins with fall floral arrangements? Another way to use hollow pumpkins and gourds is as candle-holders. For a little extra interest, spray paint the gourds with gold paint before placing a candle inside.
The fall theme can carry from the decorations to the menu. Serve soup in hollow pie pumpkins, or present each guest with a miniature cornucopia with fresh fruit inside. Adorn your wedding cake with faux fall leaves or frosted fall fruit like deep purple grapes. For your main dinner course, try something hearty that makes use of fall vegetables. And don’t forget pumpkin pie!
Make sure your table decorations fit in with the rest of the fall decorations. That means autumn inspired tablecloths, silverware, and place settings. And don’t forget about wedding favors! Giving the wedding favors a little fall flair is simple with something as easy as tying an orange ribbon around a bundle of candy corn.
With some creative thinking, you can come up with your own fall decorating ideas that can make your ceremony and reception location as beautiful and autumn inspired as possible!
