One of the most iconic symbols of autumn is the humble pumpkin, and its warm, earthy tones can add a touch of rustic elegance to your special day. If you’re planning a fall wedding and looking for creative ways to incorporate pumpkins, we’ve got you covered. From décor to desserts, here are five tasteful pumpkin wedding ideas you’re sure to love.
The neat thing about pumpkins is you can paint them any color you’d like! Grab some mini pumpkins and keep them as is, or spray paint them and place them down the aisle for your ceremony. This is a DIY project we can get behind!
If your ceremony is outside, welcome your guests with a pumpkin spice latte station! They will be so thankful to cozy up with a warm fall drink before you walk down the aisle. This is also a cost effective option for a welcome drink and you can offer add ons like cinnamon and whipped cream!
Layer With Flavor
If your bakery allows, ask if you can do a pumpkin spice flavor in your wedding cake! This is such a unique twist and would pair beautifully with a vanilla cake. If there’s one thing we know, it’s desserts are always a hit and a delicious fall twist on a classic cake will be a crowd favorite.
Here’s another fun DIY! Buy a ton of mini pumpkins and write each guest’s name and table number on them. You can even display them on a wall or tiered shelf. The best part is most guests will take these home and use them as decor after your wedding so there’s no need for another favor.
A Toast To Fall
Saving the best for last…consider incorporating pumpkin into one of your signature drinks! Pumpkin spice liqueur tends to pair really well with vanilla vodka, cream, or even citrus. The options are endless – you can even serve one of your signature drinks hot if it’s going to be a chilly day!
