A Rich Color Palette

Just because you're having a fall wedding doesn't mean you have to limit yourself to oranges, red, and yellows. We love when couples incorporate rich navy blues, emerald greens, or a romantic oxblood. And don't forget about textures! Fall is a great time to utilize a soft texture like crushed velvet or the ever-so-festive fall plaid. It also works well to mix in sequined accents to add a bit of interest!

Cozy Details

When it comes to fall weddings, we love all of the cozy details. Picture tables drenched in candlelight, It's possible to adorn your wedding with tasteful fall accents like pumpkins and colorful foliage - just think of using them in new ways! Pumpkins come in all sorts of fun colors and varieties aside from your typical orange jack-o-lanterns. And try building a ceremony arbor out of fall foliage, incorporating a lot of on-trend grasses.


Other cozy details we love are fun fall favors or coordinating bridesmaid outfits. Giving your gals  buffalo plaid scarves or flannels is a stylish way for them to celebrate the season. Some of our favorite fall favors include homemade jam, locally-sourced apples, or natural fall scented candles.

Comfort Food

Everyone's favorite part about the weather cooling down is the food, are we right? Getting married in the fall provides the perfect opportunity to serve your guests some of your favorite comfort foods. No matter the style or venue of your wedding, there's a tasty treat to match. Think homestyle lasagna, delicious hand pies, or a deluxe hot chocolate bar!
