Autumn is the perfect time to host an outdoor wedding. The weather is cooler and the sun sets a bit earlier, setting the tone for a gorgeous, candlelit reception. Today we’re sharing ideas for a nature inspired autumn wedding.

Choosing the Setting

A nature inspired wedding is perfect when hosted outside. If you’re planning a small ceremony, a wooded area would be perfect for you and your guests. Or consider hosting your wedding at a park where you can bring nature into every aspect of the day. Can you imagine how gorgeous your wedding would be surrounded by trees and color changing leaves?

Wood Accents

Wood is going to be your best friend for this nature inspired autumn wedding. Gather wood stumps and position them together to create a lovely space to fill with candles. You can also use wood slices as chargers underneath your plates at your tables, and woodgrain invitation, favor boxes and programs are all fun ways to carry the nature theme throughout the entire day.

An Autumn Palette

One of the best things about this theme is the colors you can incorporate. Deep greens, oranges and blues are lovely for an autumn wedding, and you can sprinkle these colors into your flowers and attire. Deep red roses paired with pale pink dahlias and tons of greenery are lovely for the centerpieces. And groomsmen with berry and acorn boutonnieres will be the perfect accent to this nature wedding.
