If you’re looking for amazing fall wedding ideas and inspiration, you’re in the right place! Trending fall wedding décor is all about paying homage to the season without being too literal. You don’t incorporate pine cones and leaves in your wedding décor to make it feel like a fall festive occasion! You can absolutely feel free to incorporate fall colors without literally bringing in elements of the outdoors.

Go with a Lighter Look

You can still have a chic all-white wedding while also incorporating fall accents! Consider pairing white candles with white pumpkins, lace, white flowers or even baby’s breath for a stunning and classy look.

Hints of Metallics

Incorporate hints of metallics in your wedding decor, such as by painting some mini pumpkins a champagne gold color. Mix them in with larger white pumpkins for a subtle and classy decor arrangement that would be perfect as a centerpiece, along your aisle, or even as decoration near the cake table.

Floating Candles

Floating candles are a popular choice for wedding decor, but for fall, you can get creative by incorporating natural elements like fruits and veggies! Consider creating your own floating candles by hollowing out pumpkins, apples, or other veggies to use as a vessel for a unique take on this wedding staple.

Jewel-Toned Hues

If you’re not into using a distinctly fall color scheme of oranges, reds, browns, and golds, you can always opt for jewel tones. Incorporating gem-inspired hues will give off the vibe of the changing seasons without using what are typically considered to be fall colors. Deep blues, purples, and reds mixed with metallic accents will bring a sense of warmth to your table.

Use Fall Elements Sparingly

You can use fall elements sparingly and still invoke the feelings of fall, by choosing beautiful colors, flowers with various textures, wooden elements, metallics, etc. Choosing the right mixture of details can pull together a look that feels cohesively and beautifully fall, without being overly obvious.

Consider using your pumpkins in a unique way, Instead of just displaying them as-is, hollow them out and use them as vases for your fall wedding centerpieces! You could incorporate any sort of flower or foliage to mix up the look, from chic white hydrangeas to wheat, dusty lavender sprigs to baby’s breath, to dark and moody maroon roses!

Use Leaves as Place Cards
