Autumn Wedding Themes

Leaves are stating to fall and the smell of pumpkin spice lattes are hitting the air, all things summer and sun are out and all things fall are now in! Here are four autumn wedding themes for the season!


If you want a spook-tacular wedding, a theme centered around Hallow’s Eve is perfect for you!

A Halloween wedding uses all of the typical halloween decorations; skulls, skeletons, spiders, spider webs, and lots of black. Some other decorations you should be sure to include are; candles, purple or dim lighting, and a halloween cake topper. You can also incorporate Halloween as you walk down the aisle with a “Till’ Death Do Us Part” aisle runner. Using halloween-themed vows, a black dress or veil, or eerie ceremony music will create the perfect haunting wedding day.


Nothing says fall like pumpkins. A pumpkin-themed wedding includes an abundance of pumpkins. You can utilize the different colors and sizes of pumpkins for different decorations; centerpieces, aisle decor, place settings. You can incorporate white pumpkins for a classic wedding touch.

To complete your pumpkin-filled wedding, you might want to consider having your reception, ceremony, or both at a pumpkin patch.


A rustic, harvest marriage ceremony will bring the autumn feel. A harvest theme makes use of all the brown and gold shades you can think of. The harvest theme also makes use of a lot of wood with wood centerpieces and tweed accessories. And don’t forget the greenery! Using copper tones with a lot of floral pieces and floral decorations will have you ready to “fall” in love.

This theme would be complete at a woods or barn venue.


A back-to-school wedding will be bring out all of the nostalgia from your guests.

To ace a back-to-school themed wedding, you need to use all the the things that make school, well…School! Use as many chalkboards, books, and pencils as you can. Unique decorations include grade/class place cards, brown paper bag favors, and a pop quiz wedding game.

To get an A-plus on this theme, forget the limo and have those in the wedding party arrive in a school bus. That will bring back all the memories!
