It's hard to contest that Fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year to get married. The temperate weather, gorgeous foliage and feelings of comfort that the season brings creates the perfect setting for a wedding! As your autumn wedding plans come together consider an elegant twist on the traditional for decor at your event. Who wouldn't think of using pumpkins at their fall wedding? While usually these plump, orange beauties are more at home at a country festival or Halloween celebration, they can also be dressed up, just as your guests will be, on your big day. Whether your celebration is being held in an old charming barn or a grand ballroom, glamorous pumpkins are perfect for a rustic, elegant fall wedding.
When decorating for your wedding, utilize pumpkins and gourds in all shapes, sizes, and colors for added interest. Cover in glitter, sparkle dust, metallic paint and accessorize with vintage brooches and gleaming satin ribbons. Cluster the glittering gourds and oh-so-pretty pumpkins together on side tables and stack them on pedestals for centerpieces. Line up miniature pumpkins with attached place cards on a front table to direct guests to their seats or cut out the center of large pumpkins to use as vases for floral centerpieces. I love the look of an all white arrangement! There are so many options for showcasing these glamorous fall delights at your wedding and you will no doubt want to use some of these ideas for your Thanksgiving table later in the season! Check out our Fall and autumn themed ceremony accessories and decorations for more inspiration! Enjoy!

The trend towards the unique, handmade, upcycled, and one-of-a-kind, green wedding has inspired many a bride to turn to local artists for their favors, stationery, and wedding decor. Sometimes it just isn't possible to find what you need locally and other times, every other bride in your social circle has already found it. When you want something creative and new, where should a bride turn? Well if you don't know already, Etsy is the place to go for hand-made art, gifts, and decor that will make your wedding day completely unique. Here are just a few of our recent Etsy faves with a nature vibe.
The Vermont Branch Company- Recently Featured on Etsy's Facebook page, this husband and wife duo makes natural wood toys, rustic decor, and more. We love these natural birch table numbers!
Colleen Jordan - These wearable planters would make the most adorable boutonniere alternatives! We love the idea of handing them out to guests as well.
Trinkets818 - We're in love with these silver forks stamped with mr and mrs on each one. These would be such a wonderful keepsake and eventually a family heirloom from your wedding! While they aren't strictly nature inspired, They are so deliciously cute we can't hold that against them. They also have that upcycled vibe everyone loves and will fit right into your natural decor.
ElizabethAO's Twine Wedding Shop - Is your wedding on the rustic or fanciful side? These water bottle labels that read "drink me" on aged paper can be customized for your wedding. What a great way to dress up your refreshment table. This shop also carries candy bar wrappers, escort cards, and more to match.
Visulingal - This shop's adorable "seed bomb" wedding favors come packaged in screen printed pouches. The seeds are encased in a ball of clay and other nutrient rich ingredients so you can just "throw and grow" as the listings read.

Fall is the perfect time of the year to plan a wedding. The air smells clean and new and the weather is usual perfect. Fall is also just around the corner so if you are planning a fall wedding then you should be thinking about what color schemes would be the best for your special day.
Planning a fall wedding allows you to choose from many different color options. Of course you have red, orange and yellow but there is so much more out there. The colors copper and bronze are a couple of my favorites and either color can really add some drama to any color scheme. Use cooper, bronze or gold accents to really bring the feeling of warmth and richness to your wedding.
Don’t be afraid to think outside the box. I also think purple is a great fall wedding color and it is becoming very popular. You can accent the color purple with other deeper or lighter shades of purple, or you can also use reds, browns and greens. The color combinations are endless and using deeper shades will give your wedding a wonderful sense of the fall.
Another fun color scheme for fall would be green. Green is actually my favorite color. There are some many color options when you are considering green. For fall a beautiful sage green would complement most any other color. I like the sage green with brown, burgundy and copper. You can also use darker shades of yellow to compliment a green wedding.
Last but certainly not least is the color orange. The color orange is vibrant and bright and will add a sense of fun a whimsy to any wedding. You can complement orange with red, brown, green or gold but my favorite trend is adding blue and turquoise to the wedding color pallet. This is definitely a fall wedding theme but with much more fun and pizzazz.
