I know you aren’t ready to let go of summer just yet. However, if you are considering getting married in the fall, you have to wave goodbye. A fall wedding can be stunning, with its warm and rich color palette, cozy atmosphere, and natural beauty. We are sharing our 8 Fall Wedding Inspiration Tips to help you create a memorable and beautiful celebration.
8 Fall Wedding Inspiration Tips
1. Color Palette
First, on our list of 8 Fall Wedding Inspiration Tips, is the color palette. You have to fully embrace the colors of the season, such as deep reds, warm oranges, rich browns, and golden yellows. Complement these with neutrals like ivory, champagne, and sage green for balance.
When it comes to choosing a venue for your fall wedding, choose a venue that complements the fall aesthetic, such as a rustic barn, vineyard, orchard, or garden with changing foliage. Outdoor venues can be magical during this time of year.
Fall wedding floral arrangements should incorporate seasonal blooms like dahlias, sunflowers, chrysanthemums, and roses. Mix in greenery and branches for an organic touch. In addition, some fun centerpieces can include arranged pumpkins, gourds, and pinecones alongside candles and flowers for charming centerpieces. You can also enhance the ceremony space by adorning the ceremony space with a beautiful archway adorned with autumn leaves, flowers, and fabric in your chosen color scheme. My favorite table settings for a fall wedding include using rustic wooden tables or elegant vintage furniture. Layer tablecloths, runners, and napkins in fall colors. Incorporate gold accents for a touch of elegance. No wedding is complete without candles. Utilize plenty of candles in various sizes to create a warm and cozy ambiance.
Also, included on our list of 8 Fall Wedding Inspiration Tips is the attire. For the bride, opt for a gown with warm undertones, such as ivory, champagne, or blush. Consider dresses with lace or floral detailing that bring forth a natural feel. Some nice colors for the groom can include a navy or dark-colored suit with a brown tie or bowtie that can give a sophisticated fall look. Add boutonnieres with seasonal elements like berries or leaves. The bridesmaids' dresses should boast shades of burgundy, deep green, or burnt orange and can be both elegant and autumn-inspired.
5. Food and Drinks
To fully embrace your fall wedding, choose a seasonal menu. Serve dishes made from locally sourced ingredients, highlighting fall flavors like pumpkin, butternut squash, apples, and cranberries. You can also create signature drinks by creating custom cocktails incorporating autumnal ingredients, like apple cider mimosas or cranberry-spiced martinis.
The stationery sets the tone for the entire wedding. For invitations, use paper with rich textures and fall colors. Incorporate leaf motifs, watercolor illustrations, or calligraphy for an artistic touch. If you plan on having programs or incorporating menu cards, keep the same design elements consistent throughout your stationery suite for a cohesive look.
Guests just love edible Treats. Offer guests mini jars of apple butter, pumpkin spice mix, or locally sourced honey as favors. If you’re thinking more of cozy keepsakes as a favor, consider giving out blankets or scarves in your wedding colors.
If live music is your thing, we recommend choosing acoustic or folk-style bands to enhance the cozy atmosphere.
