21 Fall Wedding Ideas We’re Absolutely Loving

June may be the most popular month to get married, but we’re head over heels for nuptials that take place in the cool, crisp days of September, October and November. (We can already hear the sound of leaves crunching beneath our feet.) So, if you’re planning on getting hitched in the autumn months, we’ve curated 21 fall wedding ideas that go way beyond the pumpkin.

15 Pieces of Absolutely Genius Wedding Advice We Learned on Reddit

1. Long-sleeve Gowns

As the weather cools down, there’s more opportunity to add some statement fabric to your dress. Just look at those boho bell sleeves. Swoon.

2. All-over Beading

A beaded dress in July? Great idea if you want to faint on the dance floor. Come fall, though, cooler temps mean you can handle the weight of all that sparkly bling. Plus, it’s a trend we’re seeing everywhere.

4. Prairie Grass Bunches

Who needs a million pumpkins and gourds screaming “IT’S FALL!” when you can elegantly kick off the autumn soirée with some simple prairie and wheat grass statement clusters?

5. Macramé Headpiece

Everything is macramé-chic this season. And what’s more appropriate while tying the knot than a delicate knotted textile on your person? Sweet metaphor? Check. Graceful, unique detail? Check.

6. Macramé Bouquet Ribbons

When something works, it works. Add notes of this crafty look as many places as makes sense. (Which, hint, is a lot.)

7. Macramé Cakes

…We bet you weren’t thinking macramé on your cake, but this three-tiered dessert from Michelle Doyon in Austin, Texas, is an example of how a little inspiration can go a long way.

8. Warm Brown Suits

Suits are a great way to punch up your event’s color palette, and we love how a brown suit can bring so much warmth to your photos—especially one that’s vintage-inspired and with some texture.

9. Textured Bouquets In Deep Reds

Let the color of the leaves changing inspire your bouquet with deeper, saturated hues. It brings out a moodier vibe that a fall wedding can certainly handle.

10. Velvet Bouquet Bows

Summer is all about easy-breezy. In fall, though, we cozy up and bring on the textures. Adding luxe velvet accents around your bouquet is an easy way to add depth to the entire tableau.

11. Dried Flower Tablescapes

We are loving these moody fall notes brought on by dark wood, ornate candle holders and nearly-dried flowers. It’s also something that most of your guests probably haven’t seen before.

12. Mossy Accents

Another easy way to add texture and ambience to your photos is using moss. Is your photographer doing close-up wedding band shots? Have them set your rings on some moss to add depth to the photos.

13. Harvest-inspired Table Numbers

Throwing a barn fete? Honor the farm-to-table philosophy by using seasonal crops as your table numbers. “Anyone else at the fennel table?”

14. Shovel-to-table Service

And if you really want to remind your guests where their food came from, get creative with the white-glove service.

15. Autumn-inspired Cake Toppers

Deep, warm reds pack so much of a visual punch on their own, you don’t need much more to make your cake a showstopper.

16. Falling Leaves Place Cards

Create a *moment* for guests upon arrival. These incredible blooms made of silk organza in bright coral tones against wisteria and tree bark accents were crafted by Jennifer Brisman, Mark Rose and Atlas Floral.

18. Thoughtful Fairy Lighting

We’ve seen our fair share of fairy lighting, but when placed deliberately with the space, the effects can create something out of a, well, fairy tale.
