Fall is a beautiful time for weddings—the changing leaves make for stunning photos, and there are so many colors to play with when decorating. Let’s check out some wedding trends for this wonderful wedding season!

Nature-Themed Centerpieces

When it comes to centerpieces for a fall wedding, you have a wide variety of nature-inspired options. If you choose floral bouquets, you can select darker flowers that fit the autumn theme and your wedding colors. Dried leaves and pressed flowers are popular for capturing that fall look as well—you could even have a leaf motif throughout your table decor, such as on cloth napkins.

Dresses and Accessories

Dark velvet dresses have become a trendy choice in the past few years, and it’s the perfect fall fit for your bridesmaids. Burgundy, forest green, and burnt orange are popular fall bridesmaid dress colors. For fun accessories, consider leaf earrings or bracelets for you and the bridal party.


Your invitations set the vibe for your wedding, so don’t leave them out of the fall fun! Dark colors and fall themes like leaves, pumpkins, and thin flowers will look lovely and stay on theme. Using a neutral tone for the color of the invites, like beige, allows you to play with more colors in the design.

Rustic Decor

Autumn is all about the rustic vibes, and brides are incorporating that into the wedding decor. Natural wood and vintage pieces really bring out the fall appearance and feeling, and there’s endless ways to utilize them. Use an old, wooden window frame to hold guest name cards, for example!


Because fall colors are much darker, it can be fun to play with texture to bring more depth to the decor. Leather, velvet, and lace can be used for pieces like table coverings or cloth napkins, and a mixture of dried and fresh flowers can make for lively, full centerpieces.

Wedding Favors

For a themed way to thank your guests for attending, consider offering fall favorites like maple syrup, mugs, jams or jellies, or ciders. Some couples having outdoor weddings choose to provide blankets for their guests, which can be a memorable wedding favor as well!
