Apple-Themed Wedding Ideas That Are Perfect for Fall
As much as we love fresh flowers, we're pretty moved by non-floral décor items—especially when those details are fresh fruits. We love everything from citrus wedding centerpieces to berry bridal bouquets, but now it's time to highlight another favorite of ours, and this one is perfect for your fall wedding: apples. This popular produce is far more than just a healthy snack. With a little imagination, you can incorporate the tasty treats into tons of different aspects of your wedding's design. In fact, we've rounded up a bushel of apple-themed wedding ideas to show you just how easy including the fruit really is.
As you're probably well aware, apples come in all sorts of colors, from red, green, and yellow to even pink and orange. That diversity alone is enough to make them suited for plenty of wedding color schemes. But apples also fit into a number of wedding themes. Whether you're throwing a rustic party on a farm—or better yet, at an apple orchard—or you're planning a whimsical event, you can utilize the fruit. You can even display them at a modern, formal affair, as this contemporary and elegant Sainte G. Cake Company dessert goes to show. And while we're partial to the idea of including apples at a fall wedding, you really aren't limited to just the one season. They'd work nicely at events all year round with a little creative planning.
Once you see the rest of this roundup, you'll better understand where we're coming from. We've spotlighted everything from apple escort cards to apple signature drinks, so that you can find a way to incorporate the fruit into your ceremony, cocktail hour, reception, or all three.
Apple Escort Cards
Here's another creative seating display idea. Escort cards were attached to apples and placed inside a basin of water. The setup was accompanied by a Frills Paper + Goods sign that read "bobbing station." (If you re-create the Sarah Park Events idea, we recommend having guests use their hands instead of their mouths to retrieve the fruits!)
What's better than regular caramel apples? Mini salted caramel apples. Robin Redding made these using sticks taken from the bride's mother's apple trees!

Apple Place Cards
Kristara calligraphed names onto these simple—but gorgeous—apple place cards.
Apples aren't confined to classically "fall" colorscapes. The fruits sprawled out on this tablescape fit in perfectly beside the blue candles and pink AvaFlora centerpieces.
Baskets of Apples
Really, apples can look gorgeous no matter how you use them. We love this rustic display—by Simply Beautiful Events—which featured baskets of apples and other produce.
For an apple orchard wedding, ask your venue if guests can pick the fruits. The activity would be super fun during your cocktail hour!

Apple Ceremony Décor
Here's another delicious idea dessert: candy apples waiting for each guest at their reception spots.
These stunning centerpieces—featuring apples, carrots, and more—looked like they were plucked straight from a farmer's market.
Instead of being stuck to or written on apples, these seating assignments were stuck into a bin of apples—500 to be exact. Deborah Delaney Design provided the cards.
