1) Delightful Decor
Pumpkins are inexpensive and in season for Fall weddings. They are also very versatile when it comes to decor because they come in so many shapes and sizes. You can choose to stack pumpkins for taller centerpieces or to make an arrangements that includes flowers, candles and pumpkins. Or hollow out the inside of the pumpkins and use them for a vase! Another cool idea we saw was drilling holes in pumpkins (instead of scarry faces!) and use them to illuminate a path. We love the image above where pumpkins are being pumpkins, setting on hay bales just like at the pumpkin patch! Very country, very cute, and full of fond memories of the season. Dress them up or dress them as they come, pumpkins are a great addition to your fall wedding décor.
2) Good Eats!
Oh boy, don’t even get me started on all the pumpkin dishes, desserts, and delights! One simple idea is pie. Sooo much cheaper than a wedding cake! Plus you could offer more options like pecan or apple. Pumpkin and squash are used for more than just desserts though! Ever heard of pumpkin soup? It’s savory and delicious, and perfect for cooler fall nights. Squash can be used in pastas, as a side dish, or even in mixed drinks and coffees. Choosing seasonal foods for your menu is better for the environment in addition to being festive so be sure to experiment and ask your catering team about seasonal fare.
3) Playful Place Cards
We love the tiny golden pumpkin place cards for seating assignments! Glamourous gold, so elegant! If gold isn’t your thing, how about some glitter? Go ahead, make Cinderella proud! Plus your guests will enjoy this token of your affection for the rest of the season. So sweet!
