Just imagine all the beautiful pictures and memories you will be able to capture!

And if you wanted to go all out, you could get a 3-tier naked cake with fresh fruits like grapes and berries. The colorful nature of the cake and its accouterments, along with its nakedness is sure to please guests.
3. Feathery Details
The number of ideas you could gather from Pinterest is crazy! Think of textures paired with feather finishes, wherever possible. For example, take into consideration the gorgeous invites you’re going to send out. You could tie up a few small feathers on there or have them printed on a light grey card. Match your fall wedding decor perfectly with the invitation.
Even your bouquet could be an arrangement of feathers, flowers, and a bunch of fall leaves! A similar pattern could be carried throughout the wedding décor in centerpieces, hanging décor, or even the arch under which you say your vows. You can make your dreams come true, finally!

You could use them as bar tables around your reception venue (and place fall flowers as centerpieces on them)!

If you’re up for it, you could also have your guests write thoughtful messages and good wishes on one of the barrels. This barrel from your fall wedding could become a part of your home or garden décor. You’ll be carrying the memories of your wedding and all your guests with you forever!

5. Sustainable Fall Meals
Think smaller portions of every food you plan to serve. With the amount of waste that a wedding can produce, it only makes sense for us, as individuals, to make sure we’re doing better. So, whether you’re serving a cranberry chicken salad or zucchini noodles, make sure you’re only serving enough food for one plate per person.
Our list of fall wedding ideas will be incomplete without this tasty list of foods you could serve:
- Hearts of palm ceviche
- King oyster mushrooms smoked and served with romesco
- Cauliflower buffalo bites
- Vegetable risotto with saffron
- Porcini mushroom ravioli
- Key lime pie topped with coconut cream
- Pistachio and chocolate tart with caramel
6. Pine Cone Place Cards
Pine cones are a beautiful, iconic signifier of autumn. They also would make a great addition to the decorations of any fall-themed wedding. Get them cleaned and place them on lightly colored linen with copper cutlery for a classy and rustic look. Make sure your understanding of the color scheme is sorted and consistent. If not, don’t hesitate to get some professional help. After all, this is a day that you will remember for a lifetime! So, nail one of these fall wedding ideas to reach your desired level of glamor!
7. Soft Metallic Accessories
If you want your guests to have a fun time and not be blinded by every reflective surface, then keep in mind that the accessories and accents you use are not bright metals. You can add metals through cutlery, hair accessories, or even with the boutonniere you want your guests to wear.
