The Best Fall Decor Ideas for Your Wedding Venue

Fall Decor for Your Wedding Venue

Fall is the most beautiful and vibrant time of year. The weather is crisp, and the world is colorful! If you’re planning your wedding for the fall, you’ll want to make sure to incorporate aspects of this beautiful season into your décor at an elegant wedding venue. Here are some ways you can integrate fall elements into your reception décor.

Signature Drinks

A fun way to add a little fall spice to your wedding venue is coming up with a signature drink that foregrounds some fall flavors. Spiked apple cider is always a great option, especially if it’s later in the fall and the weather is a little chilly. An apple cider mimosa will also undoubtedly be a crowd pleaser with an autumnal feel.

Once you decide what kind of autumnal beverage you want to serve at your reception, make sure to come up with a fun name for your signature cocktail!


The most prominent way to give your wedding venue an autumnal feel is with your centerpieces. There are a lot of different ways you could incorporate a fall theme. Pumpkins always make a fun centerpiece. You could even hollow them out and use them as a vase for a floral centerpiece. Focus on bringing fall foliage like branches or brightly colored leaves into the centerpieces. This would also be a budget-friendly idea for incorporating fall centerpieces, as such foliage is abundant in the fall.

Incorporating lanterns for lighting also gives a fall feel and casts a pleasant, romantic ambiance around the room.

Color Scheme

The color scheme you choose for your wedding sets the tone for the décor. For fall, stick to warm or neutral colors. Deep burgundy, orange, gold, etc. are perfect color choices for planning your wedding. Incorporate these colors throughout your wedding venue. Additionally, a gold-colored tablecloth makes a great neutral canvas for brightly colored centerpieces.

Flower Choices

Your floral choices are a great way to incorporate the color scheme of your wedding venue. One unique option is to include an arbor made of branches and fall leaves.

If you plan on using flowers in your centerpieces, Red Dahlias, Roses, or Red Ranunculus are always a good choice. These vibrant colors will make your wedding venue feel like autumn.
