Weddings are simply gorgeous any time of year, but we have a soft spot for autumn ceremonies, thanks to their elegantly layered and romantic-cozy feel. Here are a few fall wedding ideas to consider, whether you're in full-on planning mode or still in the "pinning" stage.
A Seasonal Save-the-Date
A fall wedding feels a little unexpected compared to spring or summer nuptials, so opt for a visual homage to this stunning season with your save-the-dates! Mountain landscapes and a darker, demure palette instill your event with a sense of both celebration and grandeur.
Candlelit Table Ambiance
What's a wedding reception without the appropriate mood lighting? Candles are a must upon every bar, buffet, and dinner table. We noticed that this beautiful wedding used taper candlesticks of all different styles and sizes (and even glittery wine bottles!) to add rich visual variety to each tablescape. This goes to show that these little reception details don't always have to be matchy-matchy!
What's nice about taper candle holders is that they add plenty of visual appeal without a lot of setup needed. We love how something simple (like these brass picks) amongst dramatic floral centerpieces can inspire sparks to fly.
A Gorgeous Autumn Garland
Another easy decorative accent idea is to string up a few garlands around the reception area, like by the dessert table, bar, and especially the dance floor! This gorgeous metal oak-and-acorn garland gives a clever nod to the changing fall foliage.
A Picture-Perfect Ring Box
Keep your rings tucked away safely before and during the ceremony in this custom-made wood box, and you'll enjoy it for years to come as a keepsake of your special day. This Etsy seller has multiple designs and font layouts on their page, too, if you want a different graphic or prefer to display initials only.
Lots of Casual Cocktail Glasses
A must for any outdoor or barn wedding: Ditch the plastic cups for sturdy, reusable, and far more Insta-worthy Mason-jar glasses. Just don't forget the paper straws!
A Pair of Rustic Chair Signs
Save the best seat in the house ... right next to your beloved. These hand-scripted signs are a great fall wedding idea because they're made of pine wood and display authentic woodgrain patterns and marks. Supply your own ribbon and hang them right from the back of both seats at the bride and groom's table.
Crafty Card Holders
As for the rest of your guests, direct them to their reception seat with a printed place card, tucked into an autumnal-themed card holder. These ready-made birch-branch holders are actually made of resin, so you won't have to scramble to DIY anything!
Plenty of Romantic Light Strands
A strand of globe lights hanging from above creates a photogenic atmosphere that's nothing short of magical. Opt for one with enough length for your party perimeter (this one is 25 feet long), and if your ceremony and reception are outdoors, make sure that the lights are weather-safe as well.
A Too-Cute-For-Words Cake Topper
The cake is the crown jewel of the fall wedding reception, so be sure to add a custom topper that's befitting of its prime placement! This sweet miniature bunting is as refined as it is rustic. It's intricately handmade and accented with tiny flowers on each end.
Quirky and Creative Reception Signs
Direct guests right to the dance floor, the dessert table, or to your designated wedding hashtag by posting up one (or a few!) signs. This custom-scripted chalkboard lends an old-school edge to wherever it’s placed.
An Elegant Guest Book Alternative
When it comes to well-wishes, it's OK to think outside the guest book. This "heart-drop"-style frame comes with a set of wooden hearts, as well as a stand to keep it upright. Guests can sign a heart for themselves or their family, then drop it into the top of the frame to create a congratulatory collage that's full of love.
Cozy Wedding Favors
As for those little "thank you for coming" treats that guests find when they arrive at their seat? For a fall wedding, try centering around a hygge-friendly feel by choosing a heartwarming favor, like this custom jar candle that's detailed in an on-theme chalkboard design.
