Feathers and Dried Flowers

If you’re saying, “I do” in the fall, use seasonal natural elements like feathers, pinecones, dried grasses and flowers to create a rustic yet chic aesthetic.

Furs and jackets

If you’re having an outdoor affair, accessorize with a jacket (denim, leather, suede, etc.) or coloured fur to stay warm while looking festive for the fall.

Gourds and Pumpkins

One of the best things about autumn is decorating for Halloween and Thanksgiving! If you’re tying the knot in October or November and you’re looking for a way to incorporate one of these holidays into your decor without going over-the-top (unless you want to!) using a few pumpkins and gourds is a great solution. Mix and match with different shapes, sizes, and colors so your display looks natrual and has dimension.

Autumn inspired cocktails

Think cinnamon apple ciders or boozy pumpkin-spiced lattes! You can even serve your drinks in a pumpkin-shaped punch bowl for a perfect fall drink station.


When this trendy decor is paired with a rustic wooden backdrop, dried florals, or a forest venue, it creates a beautiful boho look perfect for fall. You can use macrame in so many ways. Whether you hang it behind you at the alter, or use it as a table runner, it will look stunning on your wedding day.
