The crisp morning air, the crunching of the leaves underfoot and the cravings for everything apple or pumpkin flavored – they’re all signs that fall is upon us. What better way to celebrate your love than with a gorgeous fall wedding? Today we’re sharing ideas for an apple inspired fall wedding that’s sure to get you in the mood for the upcoming season.
A Crisp Color Palette
One great thing about the transition into fall is the ability to use deeper tones for your wedding color palette. Deeper reds, corals and navy blues are perfect for this apple inspired fall wedding because you can easily work those colors into your decor – apple have a beautiful array of colors that work well with the darker colors normally associated with fall weddings like blues and greens.
Pull color inspiration from your favorite flannels, apple varieties and fall color palettes and bring them all together to create a gorgeous color scheme for your own wedding.
Apple Inspired Food and Drink
Another wonderful thing about an apple inspired fall wedding is the food and drink options you can serve your guests.
When planning your menu and sweets, incorporate apples where ever you can. Roasted pork loin with baked apples, cinnamon baked apples or roasted chicken with an apple dijon sauce are all ways to include apples on your menu. Dress up your sweets table with a naked cake adorned with apples, apple cider donuts and mini caramel apples.
Stay true to your apple theme and serve a spiked apple punch, a cider beer or warm apple cider as your signature drink for friends and family to sip on throughout the night. Apple inspired food and drinks will really bring your theme full circle and will show your guests you really did think of everything.
Decorating a Fall Wedding
Decorating for an apple inspired fall wedding can be done in a very simple and sophisticated way. With pops of red and coral and a few rustic details, you can have gorgeous decor that gives off the perfect fall feel.
If you’re hosting a wedding at an actual apple orchard, set your tables up outside amongst the trees – it’s the perfect setting for a apple inspired wedding. Guests are seated around rustic wood tables with gorgeous floral centerpieces featuring pops of coral, yellow and red.
Greenery garland made from varieties of eucalyptus are perfect when draped across the head table and bar areas with red delicious or honeycrisp apples sprinkled throughout. Flannel blanket lined benches are wonderful for warming up your guests, and rustic signs showing the way to your wedding are an extra special touch in your wedding decor.
There’s no theme more perfect for your fall wedding than an apple inspired day. From the food and drinks to the decor, your attention to detail will make this one wedding that you and your guests will remember for years to come.
