Fall Wedding Ideas for a Festive Autumn Wedding

From color schemes to menu ideas, these fall wedding ideas will aid every bride in planning a festive autumn wedding.

When you think of autumn, you think of differing shades of vibrant, rich colors on the trees, fallen leaves on the ground and that sweet, warm scent of cinnamon that just makes you think of warm apple pies. Be inspired by all these, be creative and find ways to incorporate them in your wedding planning.

Fall Wedding Ideas for Favors

The thing about wedding favors is that brides agonize endlessly much over them. Just remember to keep the favors simple and useful for the guests. A maple leaf-shaped cookie cutter favor will be a great hit with your guests.

This ceramic dish is shaped like a newly fallen maple leaf with raised detail. You receive an assortment of three different fall colors including gold, green and burnt orange. Each measures 5.25" and comes in a clear topped box with a colorful leaf design golden base, tied with an autumn gold satin bow and an attached matching tag.

How about an apple cider packet with a cinnamon stick wrapped in a fancy tulle tied with a pretty ribbon? Guests can then have a nice warm cup of spiced apple cider when they get home after your wedding reception!

Fall Wedding Ideas for Colors

There is an abundance of colors that you can use for your wedding. Think of the color of nature in the fall season, from the palest of peach to burnt orange, shades of red, brown, yellow and gold. Take your cue from Mother Nature. Whatever colors you find combined in nature will work for a fall wedding color scheme. Fall colors are burgundy, dark green, navy blue, silver, gold, cream, burnt orange, taupe, brown and plum.

Fall Wedding Ideas for Decorations

Think autumn harvest when brainstorming for fall wedding ideas. Fall wedding decorations can be more than colorful cut flowers. A medley of textures such as beautiful berries, fall foliage, and autumn accessories create the look of a bountiful harvest.

When selecting fall wedding flowers consider the colors of: Yellow, Gold, Bronze, Orange, Red, Dark Pink, Burgundy, Rust, Brown, Purple, Egg Plant, Green and Tan.

Fall Wedding Ideas for Food Selection

Think Thanksgiving dinner when planning for menu. This works great when you are doing either a buffet or sit down dinner. Turkey, cranberry sauce, stuffing, mashed potatoes, gravy and pumpkin pie. Serve beverages like apple cider. Having a BBQ style menu for an outdoor wedding reception is a good idea too. Serve barbecued ribs, chicken, baked beans, potato salad and of course corn on the cob. Place beverages in a metal tub filled with ice to keep them cool.

So, plan your autumn wedding with these fall wedding ideas in mind. One last tip. Match everything according to your wedding theme and color scheme to reflect your personal creativity.
