As you plan your fall wedding, don't forget to incorporate your gorgeous signature color. Mauve, a beautifully dusty pale purple, goes well with the changing leaves of autumn. Adding mauve to the flowers, tables--and even the cake--will have your guests in awe. Need a little wedding planning inspo? We've compiled some of our favorite ideas for a mauve fall wedding.
1. Perfect Mauve Bouquets
The easiest place to incorporate mauve is in the bouquets. Whether it's the bridal bouquet or the reception table centerpieces, mauve will find a welcome home. Roses, mums, and pansies all come in this gorgeous color.
2. The Gift Table
Just as you decorate the dining tables, don't forget about the gift table. Add a bouquet or two to incorporate the wedding color. The white and gold of this card box work well as accent colors.
3. Mauve Tablecloths
You might find yourself overwhelmed by the sheer number of possibilities when it comes to decorating the reception tables. Skip the headache and go for mauve tablecloths. They're the easiest way to show off your signature color without worrying about what goes on top.
4. For Your Place Settings
The best part of choosing mauve tablecloths is that you can go with complementary or neutral colors for the place settings. Gold or silver cutlery won't clash with your design. For instance, add gold lettering to these glass coasters so guests can see the mauve underneath.
5. Mauve Wedding Cake
Even the wedding cake would look great with a bit of mauve. If you still want a relatively traditional-looking cake, incorporate a few mauve layers in with the white. Just like with the place settings, white and gold accents will make your mauve wedding cake something special.
6. Wedding Favors
Don't forget about the wedding favors. Hand out a token of your appreciation to your guests as they leave, like these silver bottle openers. The icon and message can even be personalized with your favorite color.
