Let Mother Nature Decorate Your Fall Wedding

Autumn is a great time to have a wedding! And one of the reasons I am a fan of autumn weddings is that it is so easy to gather items from nature to use in your wedding décor. You can get a lot of “bang for your buck” as the saying goes.

For example, something as simple as apples can be turned in to clever décor and cups for beverages. As shown in the collage below, apples can be used for a wide range of things such as chair décor, to hold apple cider, as a placecard holder, and for cleverly designed mini candy apples. Also, in the 2nd to last photo, the apples are simply stacked at the beverage bar but they add a lot of color and design interest.

Of course, pumpkins are quintessentially fall! They add a seasonal flare and a cozy feel to any décor. If you don’t like orange pumpkins, consider white ones instead. Our Pinterest Board – White Pumpkins for Wedding Décor has over 100 carefully chosen photos to help you with ideas and inspiration.

Leaves are easily available just about everywhere in the fall! You can use them in table arrangements, as placecards, to decorate candles and more. You can use them “au naturel” or paint them as shown in the photo below. The colors can be really luscious and they certainly are easy enough to gather up! Of course, you can buy specially preserved leaves, as well, to use alone or mixed with fresh ones.

    It is common to believe that the only time for wedding is summer, but other seasons of a year can be even more charming and make the big wedding event more special. In this case cute autumn decorations such as pumpkins, apples or wines are the perfect choise, I love it!
