It’s finally Fall and that means the return of some of our favorite things: pumpkin spice lattes, leaves changing color, the start of the holiday season, but most importantly Fall colors and themes! For brides who are planning to embrace the Fall season in their wedding planning and décor there are a ton of fun options. But even if you’re not planning to go all out with a wedding that screams Fall, we found some elegant and subtle ways to incorporate the season in your big day. We’ve got it all covered from colors, flowers, décor, favors and even a few surprises you may not have considered. Keep scrolling for our finds!

We love that these options have both expected (reds, oranges, browns and golds) and unexpected (plums, blues, and greens) palettes. You can go full Fall with the expected end or aim for a more romantic and rustic interpretation with some of the softer colors.
How cute and different is this boutonniere? And the simple "bouquet" is gorgeous too.

Why not incorporate some natural elements, like branches, to pull in the Fall theme?
Not a fan of cake? Well then Fall is definitely your season! Use those Fall pie flavors to your advantage and serve apple, pumpkin, and/or pecan pies. Check out these pie spreads for inspiration.
Mini pies! Too cute!
One of the best parts of Fall has to be all of the rich, spicy flavors. Send your guests home with something yummy in the form of sweet candy apples or a mulling spice kit!

Here's one that's a bit simpler but still evokes the Fall theme:
These candle holders feature leaf cut-outs and would be a really simple DIY!
