36 Fall Wedding Centerpieces That Pay Homage to the Season
Whether you're getting married in the country or throwing a casual wedding in the city this fall, we love the look of fresh, seasonal flowers. There's no better way to embrace the season than by bringing the outside in and celebrating the natural changes around you with autumnal flowers, on-theme colors, and fall add-ins that pay homage to the cool weather. Thanks to fiery foliage color schemes and warm, woodsy accents, autumnal wedding centerpieces can transform your reception's tablescapes.
There's no lack of variety when it comes to choosing a centerpiece that feels aptly fall-inspired. From jewel tones (like deep purples and rich sapphires) to more classic colors (think burnt oranges and rusts reds!), your color palette options are endless. And don't forget those harvest-inspired elements that make for great table accents. Use eye-catching pumpkins and pine cones on your tabletop to supplement an abundance of beautiful blooms, including in-season selections like dahlias, zinnias, scabiosa pods, and anemones. Other fresh autumnal accents like fall foliage, berries, persimmons, and squash, are also noteworthy adds (check out how Oleander incorporated harvest fruits and veggies to this tablesape, for example).
If all of this sounds straight up your wedding décor aeshetic's alley, just wait until you see the following stunners mixed together. These arrangements highlight the very best of the season's offerings and prove that the best way to add a hint of seasonality to your big-day décor is through your tablescapes' flowers. Luckily, a fall wedding has so many beautiful and rich shades, fresh flowers, harvest fruits and veggies, and more to draw inspiration from.
