Rustic Fall Wedding Ideas

Are you planning a Fall wedding?  If so there are loads of creative decorating ideas to give your wedding a warm and rustic feel that is heartwarming and romantic.

An outdoor wedding can be especially beautiful in the Fall, depending on where you live, with all the beautiful colors of the changing leaves.

I have gathered up some inspiration of rustic fall wedding ideas to help you with ideas for your own wedding.  From ceremony decorations to the reception, there should be at least one idea you can walk away with.

So…in no particular order, I’ll start throwing those ideas out to you!

For starters, potted mums make an excellent flower to decorate with in the Fall.  If you are having an outdoor (or indoor works too) ceremony, you may consider lining the aisle with them.  When you are finished with the wedding, the mums can be planted!

Pumpkins are popular in the Fall but you may not want your wedding to look like Halloween.  No worries!  Here is a fantastic centerpiece idea using white pumpkins:

For all of you birch lovers…this next idea is quite unique:

Just gather up some birch logs and construct a cool ladder style frame, like this one, to hang those place cards on.  I can’t help but notice there is a potted mum AND a white pumpkin in this photo as well!

Of course we can’t forget party favors and a Fall wedding just screams for apples bagged in burlap!

Here is an interesting rustic idea for decorting the chairs at the head table:

The added white floral bows are what really make this look.  It is totally shabby chic and perfect for a rustic fall wedding.

I hope these ideas have inspired you!
