Fall, the lovely season when leaves fall from the trees and nature paints the surroundings with beautiful hues of vibrant colors, like plums, golds, oranges, and reds. This surely is one of the most romantic and popular season to get married and the wonderful bounty of nature should be included in your wedding decorations.
So, if you have decided to get married in the month of August, September, or October, then you have many great options for decorations for a fall wedding.
You need to select a color scheme for the decorations. It should reflect the colors of the season. You can choose from a wide variety of yellow, burgundy, brown, leaf green, shades of orange, ivory, purple, plum, etc. These colors should contrast with the flowers in a tasteful way. The best color combinations are purple and silver, gold and ivory, rich brown combined with pale blue, pink in combination with dark brown or rich yellow, etc.
Nuts and fruits are a part of this season. So one of the best ideas is the use of hanging baskets, decorated with flowers, nuts, and fruits. These centerpieces are hung from the ceiling and look beautiful. You can use wicker baskets with little fairy lights dangling on them. Or you can even try pumpkins, coffee beans, wine bottles, etc., as wedding centerpieces.
You can also use fall leaves, corn stalks, and fall flowers as centerpieces. Arrange the corn stalks and flowers and add some fall leaves aesthetically in a large vase and make an excellent decorative centerpiece. Add small votive candles and light them up during the reception.
There are several ideas that you can choose from. The apple and pear theme uses deep reds, oranges, and auburn, as the colors for the reception. You can use red or green apples and pears along with the flower decorations. The signature drink for your fall wedding should include apple martinis.
Another interesting theme involves the use of fall leaves over the aisle or centerpieces.
You can plan a wine-themed wedding as well. You can have a vineyard as the wedding reception venue. There are many vineyards which offer areas for tents and inns for weddings. You can buy wine from these vineyards at a great deal and have them custom label the wine bottles with the names of the bride and groom. You can also choose wedding favors like corkscrew and wine charms which are offered at a great discount by these vineyards.
Wedding cakes are the ultimate attraction at a wedding. You can get one designed in a style that complements the season. The best flavor for a fall wedding cake can be spice or pumpkin. Use faux leaves to decorate the cake in shades of orange, red, and yellow.
You can use wheat, leaves, corn stalks, and fall wedding flowers to design an archway at the venue. In a ready-made archway, weave the wheat, corn stalks, and flowers, along with some colored tulle, to add a feminine touch. Add color by adding in some leaves in an aesthetic way.
You can even design your wedding album based on a fall theme. You can have leaves printed on the album cover and even on the pages. Flowers like sunflowers, daisies, hydrangeas, roses, calla lilies, dahlias, hibiscus, chrysanthemums, wheat stalks, etc., make as great fall wedding decorations. Your decorations should inspire and evoke the warm feelings of the season that is fall. Be as creative as possible.
