    I’m mostly just incoporating the colors.  There are a few things such as table numbers and place card holders & favors that are leaves but the centerpieces are not. I am using manzanita branches with orange & red roses for half the tables and then will submerging roses in water with a floating candle for the other half.  I’m using rose petals instead of leaves on the tables and there will also be orange uplighting in the reception room.  Will post pics after the wedding but here’s some of my inspiration photos.  The one with the submerged flowers will be red roses not orchids and the cake will be exactly the same except with orange & red roses.

    Our whole wedding is fall themed. Fall is both of our favorite seasons and especially where we live (upstate, NY), the colors are incredible. It’s literally impossible to not love fall in these parts.

    Our colors are burnt orange and brown but with other fall colors thrown in too. The girls are wearing burnt orange dresses and the guys will be rocking brown blazers.

    Our colors are Dark purple/plum and a deep red (haven’t picked accent colors yet…maybe an ivory). We are incorporating fall by using the deep rich colors but that is about it.

    @MsJ26: I’m having the same colors!I think we’re going to add in greens and brown/ivory to ours too.

    I wouldn’t say there is much “fall” to our decor except we are having some rustic elements thrown in with my “shabby chic” stuff to offset the girly vibe and because the wedding is outdoors. Those could add some of the fall touches to it. We are using a lot of grapevine, some hay bales, lots of mason jars, and the favors are caramel apples. We’re also having a bonfire at the end of the reception with s’mores. So I hope to make it pretty and give the guests a little bit of a fall vibe as well even though we’re not using traditional fall colors or pumpkins or anything.

    @mrstobeeisme: I love LG too! I grew up about 15 minutes from there. I feel like it completely embodies fall in The Adirondacks though the leaves were kind of a disappointment this year. Those damn trees better change next year!!

    We’ve kind of gone overboard with the whole fall theme but I’m totally in love with it. We’re using pumpkins in alot of our decor (thankfully my parents grow them so they’ll be free!) and lots of leaves. Dahlias are our main flower and each guest is getting a straight from the orchard apple pie as their favor (I think I’m most excited about this – we’re taste testing them tomorrow!).

    Our wedding will be rustic with a lot of branches and wood elements, but we won’t be having a “fall” theme.  Fall is beautiful, Halloween is my favourite “holiday” but we won’t be incorporating those themes.

    Our accent colour is like a jade green though.  I originally wanted yellow or lime green as my accent, but I didn’t think it would go too well in a fall wedding in Canada!
