How to decorate for a fall wedding

Fall is a beautiful time of year and using it as the theme for your wedding can make for a lovely day. Matilda Brown.

For couples who have decided to have a Fall themed wedding, there will be plenty of consideration given to the decorations. Red or orange tableclothes can be nice (and the tableclothes can be juxtaposed with other linens, say red for one and orange for the other, to create a foliage feel).

Another great way to decorate for a Fall wedding is the centerpiece. Using Fall items - such as cranberries, apples, squash, mini-pumpkins, pine cones, and leaves (fake leaves work best) - can really bring a centerpiece to life. Some ideas include floating tea lights in water filled with cranberries, carving or painting your names and wedding date onto pumpkins, filling a vase with cranberries and topping it with a pinecone and surrounding it with fake leaves, or using orange hued flowers to create a pumpkin.

Also, when having a Fall-themed wedding, be sure to coordinate the colors of the bridesmaids and groomsmen accordingly.

Floral arrangemens are another great way to bring the Fall-theme to your wedding day. Use bright oranges, reds, and yellows in your bouquet to compliment the trees outside. Mums are a particularly good flower to use in Fall bouquets.

As always, each couple will have different ways to make their wedding day their own, so good luck to all the brides-and-grooms to be with their special days!
