Fall Wedding Inspiration

The temperatures are cooling.  The sun is going down earlier and rising later.  The leaves are turning colors.  The air is crisp and has a wonderful bite to it.  That’s right, it is autumn, my friends!

Today is the autumnal equinox, the first official day of fall, so in lieu of my usual Wedding Wish-List Wednesday, I thought I would inspire brides in a different way — with a little fall wedding inspiration.

In looking for some good fall wedding inspiration, I must admit I found it was far too easy!  There were so many things that could be included here, this barely scratches the surface.  I could probably fill a month’s worth of blog posts just on fall weddings.

This time of year is amazing for weddings!  Lots of beautiful weather, tons of colors and textures, the start of a festive holiday feel all around.  It’s perfect.  You can do anything from the ever-popular rustic country charm to glittering elegance — and everything in between.

From the food — like squash soup, pumpkin pie, apple cider, and hot chocolate (not to mention the wedding cake; I recommend a spice cake for autumn) — to the bouquets — which can include things like pinecones and autumn leaves — there are lot of things to get creative with.

The colors are just incredible, for a start.  Reds, oranges, yellows, and you still get some green.  So many natural hues, creating so many color palette options.  Honey golds, burnt oranges, chocolate browns, deep reds and burgundies.  You can’t go wrong just keeping it classic!

I’m all for bold statements.  Why not mix it up a little and put some purples in there as well?  I love a good jewel tone.

Or break with the usual tradition and try something more in blue.

I personally love this dusty blue and burgundy palette.

And of course, you can soften the mood and go with something more muted, subtle, and incredibly romantic.  Soft plums, dusky rose hues, metallic bronze, gold, and copper.

The bouquets can be equally an array of colors, all by themselves!

Not to mention the centerpieces.  From florals to gourds!

Seriously, there are so many things you can do with pumpkins.  Serve soup in little pumpkin bowls.  Have the flower girls tossing their petals from hollowed-out pumpkins.  Include mini-pumpkin accents in your bouquet!  Heck, I even saw one bride who blinged out her pumpkin, and it was adorable.

And outdoor weddings are still entirely possible in the fall!

Of course, you can certainly bring the outside in with you as well!  Festoon your ceremony or reception venue (or both!) with foliage to match the glory outside.
