Fall weather is very unpredictable, especially here in Wisconsin. Avoid any weather issues by bringing outdoor elements inside to create that rustic fall feel in a more comfortable (and heated) environment. The changing colors of the leaves are just one of the many reasons why fall weddings are so beautiful. Bringing a fall wedding indoors does not mean you have to sacrifice the beautiful colors of the fall season.
For those who simply cannot go without incorporating the fall leaves, use dried leaves as escort cards. This is a great way to save paper and bring in elements of autumn.
Pairing fall leaves with pumpkins, squash and gourds will help make your guests feel as if they are outside enjoying the natural aspects of the fall season. Pumpkins, squash and gourds also make great candle holders or vases! (DIY: http://revelblog.com/2010/10/gourdeous-candle-holders/)
For more subtle fall accents, intertwine wheat into the bouquets and floral arrangements.
Tree stumps make great side tables and/or accent points with the combination of lanterns and candles. The candles are a great way to make the room feel cozy on a cool fall day.
If tree stumps are a bit too much for you, simply incorporating small branches within floating candles is fitting for the fall season as well.
