I’m sure you already thought of this, but pumpkins? I heard some people had an October wedding, and so in spring they planted some pumpkins, and while they were growing they carved their monogram into it really small(your initial-new last name intitial-his initial) so it grew into the pumpkins. You might want to Google this to double check the right way to do it if you decide you like this idea. Also, I don’t know where you are, but you can use pheasant feathers in your floral arrangements. Very fallish. Also, someone suggested lanterns for another fall wedding, which I thought looked cool.

Mums!!! Chrysanthemums are very fallsy flowers and GORGEOUS.  You can get them in wide variety of colors and I, personally, LOVE them!  They’re very much a fall flower and you could probably get them pretty cheap at places like Lowe’s and Wal-Mart.  

Lots of colorful leaves, pumpkins, gourds, hay bales (what? I live in the country! lol), lanterns, candles, and fresh fall-type fruit (apples, pears, etc). 

hope this helps!

Definitely pumpkins. I plan on using larger pumpkins, carved with our monogram and mini pumpkins in my centerpieces. Here’s my inspiration:

My mom is growing them for me, so depending on how many we end up with, I may also use them to line the aisle for our ceremony. Another fun option for pumpkins is to hollow them out and use them as vases for fall flowers.

You can scatter silk leaves around tables.

Instead of a guestbook, I’m making a wish tree out of manzanita branches with maple leaf shaped tags for guests to write on.

Another idea I love, since your wedding is towards the end of October and one of your colors is red: put some fresh cranberries and a votive or small pillar candle in a glass candleholder or vase. I did this last year for my Thanksgiving table and it was really pretty.
