Celebrate the fall season by decorating your reception venue with pumpkins and seasonal flowers: you could even hollow out pumpkins and fill them with flowers to make table centerpieces that will be a real talking point.
Pumpkins are the perfect decorations for rustic fall weddings. Rather than flower baskets, why not have your younger flower girls carry Halloween pumpkins down the aisle at your wedding ceremony: you can fill the pumpkins with traditional petals, or even use Halloween candy if you want something unusual that will really catch your guests by surprise!
Pumpkins will also great color inspiration for the younger members of your wedding party: flower girls and ring bearers will look wonderful accessorized with rich orange ribbons and bow ties. And if that just isn’t enough pumpkin for you, think of all the pumpkin recipes you could incorporate into your wedding food: pumpkin soup, pumpkin pie, you could even have a pumpkin flavoured wedding cake if you want to keep your menu choices seasonal!

Outdoor weddings held during the fall are breathtaking and magical. If your wedding venue has trees that brim with windswept fall foliage, then you are in for an enchantingly romantic affair.
Here are amazing ideas on how to integrate trees and other elements of autumn into a stunning wedding.
Morning wedding set in an orchard, a vineyard, or a barn
Say your vows under the trees as your friends and family look on. The natural golden light shimmers behind the tree branches. Fallen leaves that showcase autumn’s rich colors litter the ground. Have your guests eat while they take in their surroundings that are full of yellowing trees.
Bring the trees inside
If you can’t have an outdoor wedding, then go ahead and rent tree saplings and adorn them with lights. Line the aisle with potted trees. You can also use tree saplings as high-impact centerpieces. Surround them with amber candles for a captivating twilight glow. If the wedding reception area is small, then stick to one or two gorgeously detailed “indoor” tree arrangements.
Fall colors include purple, chocolate, crimson, orange, moss green, and burgundy. Gold and crimson look bold and elegant when used together.
Add plenty of greenery in your bouquets for an earthy effect. Use fiddlehead ferns as accents.
For the décor at the back of your guests’ chairs, mix bare branches with flowers. The delicate minimalist lines of branches add charm and character.
Wedding invitations and place cards
Use recycled paper and embossed leaf or tree motifs for your wedding invites. Stick the escort cards that bear your guests names onto mini pumpkins. This reinforces your outdoor autumnal theme.
