If you love the cool, crisp air during fall and watching the foliage change colors, the season is the perfect time to schedule your wedding. Fall marks the beginning of the holiday season, too, which means many guests will already be in a festive mood when your big day arrives. To start getting into the spirit, below are a few ideas for autumn-themed celebrations.

3 Creative Ideas for Autumn Weddings

  1. Place Pumpkins Along the Aisle

Pumpkins are synonymous with autumn, so consider incorporating the large, yellow-orange fruit in your wedding decorations. You can place them down the aisle instead of flowers. Continue the theme during the reception by putting small pumpkins with name tags next to each place setting or incorporate them into your centerpiece.

  1. Decorate the Cake with Seasonal Fruit

Apples, cranberries, and pomegranates are a few autumn fruits that would make great accents on your wedding cake. You can use the deep red, purple, and green coloring to make a simple cake stand out. Add pumpkin-flavored treats to the menu and place baskets full of squash, apples, cherries, and other fruits near food stations to add a whimsical touch to the festivities.

  1. Serve Cold-Weather Beverages

Many people love sipping on warm beverages when fall arrives, so consider serving a few seasonal staples at your wedding. To make the selections more unique, you can create specific cold-weather cocktails, such as cider with spiced rum and chocolate-vodka infused hot cocoa for adult guests. Make sure to have alcohol-free versions of the beverages for younger invitees and anyone else to enjoy.
