The centerpieces used in a wedding should bring out the wedding theme. When it comes to fall weddings, you can experiment with a lot of elements and create wonderful centerpieces. Things like pumpkins, fall leaves, and berries are commonly used while decorating the centerpieces for a fall theme.
Colors like red, orange, brown, yellow, and golden are prominently used in wedding decorations to create the fall atmosphere. If you are planning on having dim lighting for the venue, including candles in the centerpieces will be a great idea. It will give a defined look to the entire wedding decorations.

Pumpkin Candle Centerpiece

This is a perfect pick for budget-friendly centerpiece. Create this using medium-sized pumpkins, white or orange-colored pillar candles, knife, marker, sprigs of bittersweet vines, artificial berries, and fall leaves.
Start making the centerpieces by cutting the stem of the pumpkins. Mark the diameter of the candle on the pumpkin and cut it accordingly using the knife. Clean the inside of the pumpkin and place the candle into the cavity. Tuck in the fall leaves, sprigs, berries, and vines along the sides of the candle into the pumpkin.

Pillar Candle Centerpiece

Take a glass bowl with a pedestal, a white pillar candle, some fall leaves, and sprigs.
Start by placing the candle in the center. Make sure you do not secure it right now. Then, tuck some oak and maple leaves along the sides of the candle's base. Add the sprigs to the arrangement as well.
Slowly lift the candle. Tie a thin orange ribbon from the candle's base till its top; it must not completely cover the candle. Now hold the candle's base over a low flame for a few seconds and place it in the center of the plate immediately. This will help in securing it properly. You can also use adhesive tape to secure it.

Glass Candle Holder Centerpiece

Place an orange pillar candle inside a long cylindrical candle holder. Fill the candle holder halfway with gravels or grains of white and orange colors. Place it on the table and arrange the fall leaves, berries, sprigs, and nuts around it.

Floating Candle Centerpiece

Take a few glass bowls that are wide and at least 6 inches in height, and fill them halfway with water. Add colored sand, seashells, pebbles, and small marble stones in them to create a decorative base.
Now, place a few white, orange, and yellow-colored floating candles in the glass bowls. Add some artificial maple leaves in the water to cover the empty space between the floating candles.
Creating such gorgeous centerpieces for your wedding venue is not a difficult task. You can place them on tall ceramic pillars at the entrance or use them for table decorations. Explore your creativity, come up with new ideas, and create something unique to spice up the wedding decorations.
