Planning something as huge as a wedding is intimidating. You as a bride want the world to stop and give you a break from the stress, but let’s face it, this is never the reality; even so, there are many solutions for your worries, as well as splendid ideas awaiting.
This said, If your desire is to have a fall wedding, then you’re reading the right article.
Every season has its own charm; but when it comes to weddings, there’s no doubt that the coziness, enchantment, and crisp air of fall, has the magical power of turning something naturally beautiful, like a wedding, into a breathtaking experience no one will forget.
The hardest part of this is trying to figure out how to fit your imagination in what will later become the dream day you’ve always longed for, and for this, you need to get ahold of a decoration concept that makes you feel satisfied.
The sky’s the limit when it comes to Fall weddings decoration, but we can definitely recommend you to go all the way to a rustic themed event. Here we leave you with a list of rustic decorating ideas for a whimsical fall wedding.
Yes, sounds cliché, but all those leaves you sweep from your backyard can have many uses you wouldn’t even imagine. Get all your autumn leaves and use them as the perfect table decoration, where you can put the centerpiece you like the most.
A snack table is important for any wedding, but if you give it a special touch, it can become the most memorable one. How? Go with s’mores, everybody loves them, and the weather should be perfect for it, so do it!
A starred sky
If you happen to organize your wedding inside a tent and need special and beautiful lighting, please give star-like lights a shot. Sparks spread all over the ceiling will make your guests and you feel like a fantasy. A dinner under the starred sky. Get the most beautiful tiny led-lights for your reception and see everyone enjoy the evening.
Stumps, or large trunks, are just what your Fall wedding needs, and you can use them practically for everything. Cupcakes, snacks, pastries, beverages, flowers, sweets, and more are some of the options for placing in different tree stumps used as tables or stands. It will make your reception look like a living forest.
You can also use stumps or pieces of wood to create original gifts for your guests. For example, wooden keychains engraved with the wedding date, or photo stands!
Use them to hold tables or just to put food or the cake on top of it. Also floral arrangements, beverages, wedding gifts, and whatever your imagination can come up with.
Talking about flowers…
Instead of choosing the classic flowers to decorate, such as roses, give your floral arrangement a twist with a stem of wheat. Add ribbons, other flowers, and any other cute thing until you’re satisfied.
Tip: You can put the bouquet inside empty dark bottles or jars to give the centerpiece a nice color contrast.
You’re about to start a new adventure full of light with your favorite person in the world, and one way of projecting this at your wedding reception is to light the way a few meters from the entrance, where you’ll be ready to say YES.
Fall is known for all the warm colors—orange, yellow, red, and brown— but if you want to give a more powerful impression, you should combine them with blue, especially indigo or dusty blue. Don’t believe us? Check out these pictures!
Keep it warm
In case your wedding reception takes place outdoors, then you should consider keeping your guests warm, as many times they forget to bring a jacket, coat or others. How will you do this? Get a bunch of cozy blankets and put them in baskets, so every person that needs an extra help to keep warm can take one and enjoy the evening.
Whether it is candle lantern, a floral arrangement, a basket full of cute things, or circles made out of a combination of beautiful florets, hanging decorations will always be a memorable visual aspect, as it creates an enchanting vibe everyone will love.
Arches are a traditional element in rustic outdoors or indoors weddings, as getting married represents a new chapter in your life, and because it’s perfect for pictures! Get a circular one for a better scenario and strike a pose with the love of your life.
Want a fancy touch?
If you want to go big in your wedding, please consider a place with a ravishing candelabra, as it goes perfectly with the Fall theme and will make you feel as if you were living in a castle. Imagine all your guests dining under a cozy candelabra, while they’re being guarded by huge “arms of light” looking splendorous. Amazing, right?
Wedding decoration can be a stressful experience for you or your wedding planners, but you need to keep calm, for decoration will never take the pleasure of seeing all your loved ones reunited at your reception. Don’t let panic take over you and just enjoy the day, even if some things are not going as planned.
