I am doing fall stuff mixed in with "the nightmare before christmas" and having candy bars and costumes for the guest…so in short we are in incorporating certain aspects of Halloween, but not a full blown theme around the holiday.  It just worked better for us in that way, and most of the stuff I had to DIY because it is VERY expensive. Good luck!

Ok I think this is classy and if I had a fall wedding I would have done it… incorporating pumpkins and maybe gourds of some sort… and I ALWAYS wanted to do the mini pumpkins with a little card on the top with their names for each place setting. I would have done white ones but you could also do the classic orange. I just LOVE them!

what kind of feel are you going for? Fun, elegant, very halloweeny or more just the colors?  Where are you going to have your reception?  Thanks this might help to give you more accurate ideas:)

I seen this inspiration and loved it. It is halloween but very very elegant.  I especially love the dance floor with the moon and tree lighting silhouette.  Just an idea:)

I create custom wedding cake toppers on my etsy shop. If you are interested, we can define the details for a topper with autumn colors, leaves, pumpinks etc. The items posted by ACountryCowgirl are really wonderfull and elegant! A gorgeus ispiration!

Could you collect actual yellow and other colored fall leaves and spread them on the tables, around groups of gourds and pumpkins as centerpieces?  You’d have to collect them close to the wedding, but if you do it yourself, you can’t beat the price, and it could be fun! 

I went to a wedding that had lined a pathway with lit jack-o-lanterns that they carved themselves- all the guests loved it!  An easier option is to do luminaries- paper bags (lunch sized) filled with sand and a candle- they look so pretty all lit up at night too!

I am also doing a Halloween-themed wedding next year. Our is Oct 16 though. Anyways, ours is going to be more of a Halloween-Fall Harvest theme combined. Our colors are black and orange also =)

Have you chosen a venue yet? We looked at a lot of places and ended up finding the perfect place at a privately owned farm, it is absoluetly gorgeous and LOADS cheaper than several of the hotels/banquet halls/ballrooms in the area. Just the fall colors in the trees and the spooky country feeling can sometimes add more ambiance then decorations could.

As far as decorations, have you checked our your local craft stores? We have one here called Pat Catans that has FABULOUS fall decorations, and very classy. We found some paper mache pumpkins that we will be painting black and pairing with the orange and white pumpkins. We found some really cool pumpkins that were made out of twigs that we will be placing all around.

Instead of doing cheesy witches and ghosts, we are opting for tons of pumpkinns everywhere and lanterns. One idea is to carve numbers into pumpkins for table numbers. We also plan on lining the farm paths with jack-o-lanterns as well. Lanterns are key – we found TONS of different kinds at our craft store.

Other options are:

– Go with something non-traditional for the cake like Red Velvet, or we are even considering doing mini pumpkin pies. 

– Make your place cards with mini pumpkins

– Depending on your venue, get some black valances and fill them with white x-mas lights

– Hang orange and black paper lanterns from your ceiling

– Take wedding pictures with pumpkins or jack-o-lanterns in front of your faces =)

– Make your entrance songs/first dance song/bridal party song Halloween-ish, we are doing Ghostbusters and Thriller

 

HTH!
