Fall Wedding Inspiration

Autumn is a spectacular time of year for throwing a party. Crisp air. Golden hues. Natural elements (berries, pinecones, nuts) that blend with each and every one of your wedding details. Need a little inspiration? Take a look.

Into the Woods

A backdrop needn’t be built from scratch. For an elegant setting, use the natural beauty of fading trees for taking a captivating portrait.

Bountiful Bouquets

Rich shades of chocolate and crimson create a gorgeous contrast against the ivory gown.


Double Up 

Personalize place settings by wrapping strips of burlap and kraft paper place cards around napkins.

Vintage Wheels

Add some flair to a classic car by tying cans to the bumper using thick satin ribbons in your wedding colors.

Tangerine Dream

One color. So many ways. A few shades of one hue will give the girls some flexibility and push your photos to new limits.

Needle in a Haystack

Line the aisle with bales of hay and mason jars filled with flowers for a backyard ceremony that’s simply charming.

Candy Apples

Signature cocktail? Check. Signature treat? You bet. For a delectable treat, serve pint size apples coated in rich and gooey caramel.

Seasonal Elements

Take advantage of the surprsing ways to use seasonal elements. Use small pumpkins as petite bowls and set on naturally handsome woodgrain slabs.

Fall for this Idea

Greet guests with snacks, cocktails, and precious puns.

Warm Fall Wedding Colors

I love summer but I must admit the Fall is my favorite season. When the harvest season comes along I think of all the whimsical ideas I can incorporate with fall wedding colors.

Red & Copper:

Besides being warm and cozy there is also a richness to fall colors. I never thought I would love the color red, but when I see it paired with these stunning copper details it has a rich feel to it that just makes me want to plan a fall wedding.

Are those copper toned high heels a fun touch! I also love the idea of mini apple pie pockets to send your guests home with.

Navy and Orange:

Is orange a fun color for Fall or what! You don’t have to include pumpkins, Apple Pie, Leaves, or any Rustic elements if that isn’t what you’re inspired by, but you can still have fun planning out the details of your fall wedding colors.

Spice things up with navy bridesmaid dresses and orange polka dotted scarves, while hanging delightful orange paper poms over your dance floor, as you cover your tables with blue mason jars filled with orange billy balls.

Brown & Gold:

In the fall we want to feel warm and cozy by the fire and colors like brown and gold inspire that inviting feeling.

Make your brown wedding sparkle with gold heels and jewelry. Bring a beautiful glow to your reception with centerpieces of candles sitting on top of mirrors adorned with acorns. How much do you love the little doughnut drops, and guess what flavor they are…pumpkin!

Yellow and Chocolate:

Sunflowers have the perfect color combination for autumn weddings. The deep brown center and the warm yellow petals set the stage for a beautiful wedding day with mustard yellow bridesmaids dresses, brown cowboy boots, a tasty chocolate cake, and fun owl accessories including the sweet bride and groom owl cake topper. 

Green & Fuchsia: Eye Popping

Just because the colors of Fall aren’t as bright as Spring and Summer who says you can’t add an eye catching combination into your fall colors! Just imagine the Fuchsia flowers mixed in with green Apples and birch table numbers on your reception tables, or the green bridesmaids dresses your ladies will be wearing as they carry fuchsia dahlias down the aisle. I love the idea of mixing a bright color with Rustic, homey details.

Whether you are dreaming of a traditional fall wedding with orange Pumpkins, apple pie, and bails of hay or you want something more offbeat like fall wedding colors of Fuchsia and green or pops of purple, always remember that it’s perfect because it’s your own style and your personality that will shine through.

Caramel Apple Wedding Cake

Planning a fall wedding? You’ll love this caramel apple wedding cake to top it off! It is always fun to incorporate favorite fall-isms into autumnal events (like caramel apples, apple pie, cider + donuts) and this caramel apple wedding cake is perfect! This cake seamlessly blends in all the spices of the season: caramel, apple, moist cake, chopped nuts, buttercream… YUM!

This cake is perfect as a wedding “sweetheart cake”, the term we like to use for a small cake made just for the bride & groom. This is a perfect alternative to still have the cake cutting ceremony if you’re having cupcakes, or another dessert in lieu of a traditional wedding cake. And, if you’re feeling adventurous in the kitchen you can learn how to bake this cake yourself!
