Long, fall-colored dresses will make it easy to find cover-ups that can keep them toasty when they need to be outside. Look at different fall wedding combinations, such as browns, purples, and oranges to determine the best dress color.
  • If you are getting married in October, your flower girls can carry pumpkins filled with flower petals instead of baskets. This is also great if your fall wedding colors have a touch of orange in them.
  • Red and yellow are popular fall wedding colors. Bouquets using these colors and flowers such as red daises are very bold, yet very beautiful. White roses are also beautiful in a fall bouquet.
  • Fall is a great time for you to go with a rustic theme for your wedding, if you like rustic.
  • You can opt for an outdoor wedding, but you will need to be mindful of the weather. You can also opt for a wedding venue that you can decorate in the colors that you want in the style that you want. A birch and curly willow arch that is filled with berries and hydrangeas in autumn tones can make for a beautiful fall wedding theme.
  • An orange and theme is bright and bold. In fact, these are the colors that you could use for an Indian-themed fall wedding. You can lay out a red carpet down the aisle that leads to an orange canopy and your guests can sit on decorative pillows lining the aisle.
  • If you are a southern couple, then you may want to put on the cowboy boots before walking down the aisle. Boots can even be used as vases for unique centerpieces during the reception.
