Autumn Theme Wedding Ideas

fall wedding

Do you love the sound of autumn leaves crunching beneath your feet? What about the sight of sugar maples blushing bright crimson under a blue sky? Or the smell of a forest when its floor is covered in layers of fallen leaves?

There’s no better time of year to get married than the fall.

Autumn theme weddings are popular with couples that love this time of year.

Here are some ideas for creating an autumn theme wedding:

Flowers/Centerpieces/Décor – For centerpieces, use leaves along with Indian corn, gourds, squash, bittersweet and small pumpkins or simply use fall flowers, such as mums and hydrangeas and place them in baskets. Photo: Romantic Home

Maple syrup favors

Favors – For favors, give guests cinnamon and apple scented potpourri, small bottles of maple syrup or maple sugar. Or make some maple flavored sea glass candy!
