8 Stunning Ideas for a Fall Wedding from IG

1. Add layers of depth for a true fall wedding aesthetic.

Your tablescape is the perfect opportunity to go heavy on details. Just as fall leaves fall and create layers outside, you can mimic this feeling on your tables.

Of course, neatly place items on your table. However, creative napkin ties, multiple glasses, and stacked plates (with a charger!), all add depth.

2. Use multiple types of fall wedding flowers.

Florals add texture and dimension to your big day but don’t choose just one bloom. Autumn brings a whole host of gorgeous florals, so seize the opportunity to incorporate multiple blooms.

Not only should you include different flowers, but also vary the hues. The end result is a stunning bouquet and centerpieces with a just-picked feel.

3. Have fun with fall wedding cakes.

Dried elements are so gorgeous, and autumn is the perfect time to include them on your special day. Consequently, your wedding cake is no exception.

Barrel wedding cakes, textured icing, and dried florals are sheer perfection. Fall wedding cakes lend themselves so beautifully to creative concepts and uniqueness.

4. Spring for a fall wedding arch.

Or should we say falling for a fall wedding arch? Either way, a statement arch makes a gorgeous backdrop for your wedding ceremony.

Additionally, a backdrop can be moved to the reception to frame the head table or serve as a photo background.

5. Be creative with your fall wedding decorations.

Whether you’re embellishing your hair, reception tables, or ceremony seating, get creative! Of course, pumpkins and mums are traditional.


However, branch out and either use expected elements creatively or skip them altogether. Autumn is the perfect time to include creative fall wedding ideas. P.S. Yes, colorful fall cocktails can count as decor!

7. Chose fabulous colors for a fall wedding.

Love orange, rust, and brown tones? Go for it! Conversely, if you adore plum, navy, and gold, incorporate those hues if you want. Colors for a fall wedding don’t have to be traditional at all.

However, deeper tones can offset the season beautifully as the leaves start to change. Whatever you select, be sure that you adore your fall wedding color palette. As a bonus, fall wedding dresses are a fabulous opportunity to incorporate autumnal tones.
