Fall has always been my favorite season and I’ve always liked the idea of a fall wedding. Now that I’m actually planning mine, I’m at a loss for what to do for decorations.
See, I don’t really want to use pumpkins. And I’m not a big fan of rustic stuff either.The only thing I’ve thought of so far is having lanterns line the aisle. Like the picture, but with leaves.
I’ve also thought of using laterns in the centerpieces, maybe like this.
Also, I think owls could be a nice fall-ish touch, but I don’t know how to incorporate them.
Any suggestions?? Our colors are pink, yellow, and brown.

Well I think apples are pretty fall like and they come in pinkish and yellow colors. Also I feel like straw and corn are kind of fall related. You don’t have to be perfectly on with the season. It is your wedding you can do what you want. Also just roses in general are great.

I’m having a fall wedding, but we’re going with a celestial/ constellation theme rather than sticking with the season. But- I had plenty of ideas before we stuck with this.
What about apples? Are they in season where you live during that time of fall? You can have different colored apples depending on your favorites for decoration- apple cider (and hard apple cider 😉 ), apple spiced cake, etc.
My brother/sister in law used jars of fall leaves and acorns as their decorations.

I love the mum idea! I think I will do some of those as well.
OP: I have the same dilemma, I used to want to decorate with anything fall (pumpkins,leaves, etc) but now that I have started planning my wedding… I just don’t want it a fall celebration.
I have considered painting pumpkins tho, to match my color scheme!

We have a store in Texas called Central Market- it’s kind of like Whole Foods? Well, this past October, they had what they called ‘blush pumpkins’ out front in a big display. They. Were. Gorgeous. They looked like Cinderella pumpkins, mostly creamy white with blush pink where the sun had hit them. They were priced about $10/per pumpkin, but you might want to check that out and see if they’re in your area. They would go beautifully with pink and brown, and look ‘Fall’ without being outright orange and such. Could EASILY be coated with a light glaze of gold or gold glitter spray paint for sparkle as well.
Also, I found this (they just outright painted them):
We are also getting married in the Fall, and originally we were having a rustic, Texas hill country wedding, so we were definitely considering including apples, whether it was in the menu (pork with apples of some sort, apple tarts or cakes for the dessert table, etc.) or as favors (apple pie pops tied with beautiful lace or coordinating ribbon), or as beverages (apple cider, either hot or warmed, or- my favorite- as ‘Chaider’!).
There are TONS of ways to incorporate Fall colors without including pumpkins! From your tablecloths to your centerpieces and floral arrangements, I mean, the list is ENDLESS, really. I’d maybe consider focusing on the brown- or multiple shades of brown, and using the pink and yellow as accent colors. Incorporating grapevine-type wreaths or decor (think twigs, sticks, etc.) also feels Fall-like. I LOVE that aisle picture above that someone posted! It’s gorgeous!
If you’re getting maried in the evening, amp up the candles for a cozy glow. I think that’s more Fall…the cozy FEELING you get when you think of it. Fireplaces, apple cider, cuddling under cozy blankets, crunchy leaves changing colors. It’s not all about pumpkins!
