A country wedding in the fall is the perfect match. From a gorgeous barn venue to rustic centerpieces and apple cider, there are so many ways to make the decorations your own. No matter how large or small your wedding, you’ll have some gorgeous fall foliage as the backdrop to your special day. Here are seven country wedding ideas for fall that we’re loving right now.
Serve a Pie
Fall is the perfect season to serve pie, as well as a great country desert. Depending on the season, you can serve a traditional pumpkin pie or even choose from a seasonal fruit pie such as blackberries or cherries. Feel free to serve a single flavor or offer a few different options to satisfy all your guests’ cravings and skip the wedding cake.
Not only do fall colors make for perfect centerpieces, but a country wedding theme also gives you a wide variety of options too! Create your own simple centerpiece with mason jars wrapped in twine or ribbon and fill them with some fresh flowers for your guests. You can also opt for a vintage lantern with a candle or glass bottle filled with seasonal fruits!
Add Some Pumpkins
Pumpkins are one of the most popular staples of fall, as well as one of the most versatile wedding decorations! Choose from large or small sizes, along with orange or white depending on your wedding colors. Pumpkins can be used as table decorations, centerpieces or even seating cards for your guests. You can even monogram you and your partner’s initials for some extra personalization.
What’s more country than a great pair of cowboy boots? Not only will they keep you warm for an outdoor wedding, but they’re also more comfortable enough to dance the night away. Wear them under your dress for a fun surprise and invite your bridesmaids to wear them with you! You can even grab a pair for your ring bearer and flower girl to match.
Decorate with Hay Bales
Magically transform your outdoor seating area for a country wedding with some picture-perfect hay bales. Whether you use them for ceremony seating or simply as aisle decorations, these are a great alternative that adds an instant touch of fall. We recommend covering them in a simple quilt or blanket for your guests’ comfort as well.
Host an Apple Cider Bar
Keep your guests warm throughout your ceremony and reception with a tasty apple cider bar! You can also supply some alcohol for any guests who would like to make a “hot toddy” drink to sip on. Add an extra element of country and fall with wooden bar design and themed cups such as mason jars.
Choose a Venue
One of the most important aspects of a wedding is the venue. Many country wedding themes also take place outside so a location such a barn is the perfect place to say your ‘I do’s’. Not only will it give you plenty of space for your guests, but you can also decorate accordingly with some fall foliage and a beautiful background for wedding photos.
