Fall- the season of pumpkin spice everything, changing leaves, football games and chilling air- is finally upon us! Although Summer is always dubbed “wedding season,” Fall weddings have become increasingly popular because of all of the gorgeous and cozy rustic details you can utilize to create an unforgettable affair! Deep colors inspired by the changing season are key, as well as any other details that will remind everyone of how beautiful the natural landscape is during this season! Plus, you can employ fun ideas like blankets and hot chocolate bars- who doesn’t love that?
We’ve chosen some of our favorite ideas fit for a splendid Fall wedding to give you some inspiration for your own big day!
Fall is the perfect time to host an outdoor wedding ceremony! The weather isn’t too hot and your guests can get an unforgettable view of some Fall nature! Make sure your guests stay comfy by providing them with a blanket or pashmina (bonus points if they count as a wedding favor) and some hot drinks, then stun them with an awning featuring a ton of fresh, Fall florals!

Deeper, richer colors like cranberry and emerald pair perfectly with the chill, coolness of fall. We also love the idea of shimmering gold accents to match the warmth of the changing leaves! View even more bridesmaids dresses on the Something New Boutique website!

For your Fall wedding florals think harvest- incorporate seasonal offerings like apples and acorns to give your wedding a rustic feel. Plus, there are plenty of deep-colored flowers to give your bouquet or centerpieces that autumn richness that everyone loves!

Indoors or outdoors, you can give your reception plenty of seasonal charm with details like using tiny pumpkins to assign guest seating, and providing a homey hot chocolate bar as a delicious treat that will also keep guests warm!

We love a table decked out with all kinds of natural details like leaves and seasonal fruit, and gold accents complement them perfectly! And when it comes to food, why not take inspiration from Thanksgiving? It’s one of America’s most beloved traditions, and has plenty of tasty food options to offer!

Last but certainly not least, we have the cakes! A delicious, rustic bundt cake looks amazing paired with some fall foliage. And we love the gold, forest-inspired details on the second cake, which remind us of all of the gorgeous natural features of Fall.
