Has the thought of a spring or summer wedding never really appealed to you? Are you planning a fall or autumn wedding instead? Fall is a beautiful time of the year for weddings with all the colors and options you have available - you’re sure to find some great ideas for fall wedding centerpieces. Many brides have a lot of trouble trying to decide what kinds of wedding centerpieces to put on their tables, I know that I sure did anyway. Your wedding centerpieces are so important, because they really are the focal point of your wedding tables, as each of your wedding guests will be looking at them throughout your wedding reception. The right wedding centerpieces can transform an ordinary room into whatever look you’re trying to go for. One of the best ways to choose wedding centerpieces is to choose a theme for your wedding. So if you’re planning a fall wedding, you might want to choose some centerpieces related to the season of your wedding. Here are some great ideas for fall wedding centerpieces.

Fall Wedding Centerpieces with Pumpkins

Pumpkins and ghourds come in so many different colors, and they are very versatile for your wedding. A few great ideas for fall wedding centerpieces with pumpkins are easy to find. Here are some of my favorites. First, a great fall wedding centerpiece is to hollow out a large pumpkin and use that as a vase to hold your flowers. Or, you can use some smaller pumpkins, pressed leaves, nuts and fruits in a small arrangement at the center of each table. I did just see one great idea for fall wedding centerpieces with pumpkins that uses mini pumpkins as candle holders. Take a miniature pumpkin and a small cookie cutter, and using a mallet pound it into the top of the pumpkin. Using a paring knife, cut out the circle from the top of the pumpkin and insert a tall tapered candle into the top.

Fall Wedding Centerpieces with Fruit

Another great way to celebrate fall with your fall wedding centerpieces is by using fruit. Highlight some of our favorite fall fruits with displays using apples, pears, cranberries and other seasonal favorites. Grab a couple of long shallow dishes and fill them with the fruit of your choice for a truly unique wedding centerpiece. Another great benefit of using fruit in fall wedding centerpieces? Your guests can eat them at the end of the night. Or, put a tag around the stem of each one and let them be your wedding favors when your guests leave. Talk about making your fall wedding centerpieces do double duty!

Fall Wedding Centerpieces with Flowers

You can’t forget about flowers when it comes to listing ideas for fall wedding centerpieces. Flowers are perhaps the most popular kind of wedding centerpieces available. Darker colored flowers, ivy, sunflowers and even pressed leaves in the bright and beautiful shades of green, brown orange and red can create some beautiful centerpieces. Be sure and talk to your florist to determine which flowers would work best for your fall wedding centerpieces, including which flowers are in season, and options that you have.

Fall is a wonderful time of the year for a wedding. The fall season can provide a wedding day just as romantic as a beautiful day in spring. The different fall wedding centerpieces that you choose should highlight your favorite aspects about the fall season. There are many different ideas for fall wedding centerpieces, and with a little creativity and fun, you will find one that suits your needs perfectly.
