Summer is coming to an end which means way more than the excitement of pumpkin spice lattes, it means fall wedding season is approaching! Fall weddings can be tricky to plan as everyone uses the obvious ideas of incorporating pumpkins and hot cider. Surely, you want your special day to be unique, which is why we're here to help! We've compiled a list of our favorite not-so-typical fall wedding ideas that will be sure to inspire you.
1) Throwing Leaves Instead of Rice, Confetti or Flowers
This is such a fun (and cheap!) way for your fall theme to be apparent. Plus, the leaves would look great for pictures.
2) Tweed and Jeans
If you're having an outdoor wedding, the tweed and jeans style would look great for a rustic-romance or classic-country theme.
3) Copper Accents
Watch out gold and silver, copper is the new wedding trend. Copper can be used for any type of theme whether it be glamorous or vintage. It also pairs very well with nature!
4) Skipping the Chicken and Fish
Do not be discouraged that comfort food is not on your typical wedding menu. It's definitely a crowd pleaser for all ages! Rich foods like red meat, mashed potatoes and biscuits can also really play into your fall wedding theme.
5) Cozying Up with Blankets
This is a genius and simple idea for an outdoor wedding. You could even add a basket of hand warmers in case your wedding date is in the colder months of fall.
6) Cowboy Boots
This style is not for everyone, but it's a unique alternative for a fall wedding. Regardless, you can't argue how darling these little flower girls are in their boots!
7) Non-traditional Desserts
More couples are switching out big white wedding cakes for other desserts like pies, donuts, cake pops and much more. It could even be fun to have caramel apples if you want to take your fall wedding to the next level!
Velvet texture at a fall wedding is elegant, sophisticated and will be sure to "wow" your guests. Be sure to use it in moderation and in deep colors.
9) Rustic Carts
Reclaimed wood can be the perfect touch to your fall wedding. Top it with some lace or burlap and you have yourself the southern charm you were looking for.
10) Gilded Leaves
Gilded leaves are great replacements for place cards or floral bouquets and bring out some really amazing colors of fall. Again, using leaves instead of flowers is super inexpensive!
