@jordanl1027:  Mums, bobbing for apples, flower girl could throw leaves, serve cider as a beverage, pumpkin pie, etc…

Just don’t use burlap or mason jars!

@jordanl1027:  Not sure what your color scheme is, but pinecones are easy to find and decorate with; and if paired with the right colors they can look sweet and rustic:

^ change out the blue base for something brown or beige, or remove it all together

Branches and wood circles are also great for decor:

Wheat, seasonal items, leaves, etc:

Good luck!!

Do you have any access to barnwood?  It’s easy to make cool rustic signs – I just tried to mimic the “bombshell” font that I saw online with white craft paint, and I’m not usually a crafty person…

and by the way – mason jars and canning are big here too, and we definitely used them.  I couldn’t say no to 300 free jars in my parents’ basement.

I just went to a wedding that had pumpkinds with sunflowers and red roses and greenery in them as the centrepeices. They were AWESOME!

If you have made any decisions, buy those items this year at clearance prices.

there is nothing wrong with burlap and mason jars if it fits what you wanna do, and it’s cheap!

@Aquaria: 

Bobbing for apples??? At a wedding???? LOL! Why no mason jars?

We were going to use tree trunk slaps to incorporate with the centerpiece and burn our initials into it 🙂
