We dressed one of the tables in the ‘cocktail hour’ room with dry autumn leaves, tiny pumpkins, conkers and then candles in hurricane lamps. It was so lovely and ‘cosy’

I think some candles in different sizes on a lace runner with perhaps something pretty like those colored vace filler beads or river rock would be pretty.

Lanterns with fall leaves and candles always strike me as fall ๐Ÿ™‚

What about apples? Bulk stores and pick your own orchards will offer them cheap and I think they’re super cute and different from the usual ๐Ÿ™‚

White pumpkins also have a romantic feel vs regular orange pumpkins.

We are also getting married in the south on October. Not much on flowers either but there is a lot of choices (Thank Pinterest on that!). How about:

a woodland-(moss and fillers): http://www.weddingchicks.com/gallery/woodland-wedding-decorations/?pid=45478

I would go for some simple vases, and put strands of fake pearls in them, along with a candle.  You could always put a lace runner or doily underneath.

Fall leaves, wheat or other dried grasses/grains, cranberries, fruit. How about squashes that aren’t pumpkins? You can get really cool looking Gourds.

I am actually allergic to flowers!!!  So we are doing two different types of centerpieces:  Eiffel Tower with abstilbe (sp) that look like lavendar but they’re blush And have no pollen.  The second one is vintage hardback books with wooden slices and very small juliep cups with little arrangements.  But I also love the centerpieces with just large branches/wooden sticks and rocks or moss on the bottom and candles around.  That’s what I’m thinking of as a back up in case my florist can’t find abstilbe for me ๐Ÿ™‚

@meg101213:  How about buying pearl necklaces at thrift shops and using those to fill vases?
