At Wedgewood Weddings, fall is one of our favorite seasons to plan the perfect wedding for our couples. From the vibrant colors of leaves changing to unique seasonal decor, there are so many things to love about autumn nuptials. If you’re considering the cooler months for your big day, see the many reasons why you’ll fall in love with your autumn wedding.
Fall Colors Add a Pop to Your Wedding Day
From rich orange hues to bright yellows and deep reds, there’s nothing dreamier than the vibrant natural color palette that autumn brings. While pinks and blues are common colors for weddings, fall shades will add a unique twist to your big day. Not only that, choosing seasonal colors for your bridal party will make the bride’s gown pop even more in group photos. Even bouquets and centerpieces are more vibrant with the addition of fall colors!

Unique Decor Options
Fall weddings are perfect for incorporating unique, seasonal touches into your wedding decor. One Wedgewood Weddings' bride featured a colorful candy bar on her big day that was a hit among guests. For centerpieces, you can include fall foliage such as bare tree branches or acorns.
