Fall Wedding Ideas

Opening Wedding Image

Fall Wedding Ideas

What a great feeling to finally marry the person of your dreams, your best friend, your soul mate! Time to start the planning process for your fall wedding!

Your wedding day is one of the most memorable days you will remember for the rest of your life. Planning your wedding can be somewhat tricky, sometimes stressful and tedious but the outcome is totally worth it. When we think of fall weddings, we think cooler temperatures, rustic and natural atmosphere, acorns, and leaves changing upon shorter days.

The fall season more than likely holds a special place near and dear to you both. Color hues most common for fall weddings are neutral, but step out of the box a little and embody colors like orange, maroon, gold, yellow and more. Think outside the box and don’t be afraid to express yourself.

Take a few moments and check out these fall wedding ideas from Candy Concepts, Inc. for your décor needs. Pictured on the left is just a suggestion on how the finished product could look and on the right is the product for sale from

Display Wagon

Wedding decorations and receptions are fun if you have the right tools and equipment to work with. This Red Cedar Planter Wagon with the platform shelf comes (pictured on the right) with many versatile usage options but adds a nice touch for fall weddings as a service area for beverages, desserts, wedding gifts, and more. This rustic wagon can hold up to 800 pounds, without the platform shelf, and is completely portable with 30” wheels. An optional hitch can be added for a more authentic appeal. When not in use add to your landscape to display beautiful blooming buds and greenery, in the fall with bales of hay, or at Halloween with your scariest witches and other decorations.

serving baskets and crates

Here’s a simple, yet fun, idea for your fall wedding reception. Put together a fruit stand for your guest to indulge and enjoy. It’s healthy, inexpensive, and perfect for all ages. Plus it helps pass the time and ease those unwanted hunger pains while your guests are waiting for the bride and groom to arrive after the wedding ceremony. Serve a wide variety of edible fresh fruits and vegetables in our Fruit/Vegetable Basket Assortments (pictured lower right corner) and our Lightweight Nesting Crates with Rope Handles (pictured upper right corner). Arrange to your liking, add memorabilia tags or thank you tags with the wedding date to the fruits for taking home. Add a little height diversity to your fruit table with the baskets and crates by setting them upside down and using a few as table risers.

Both the baskets and crates can be used for other purposes once your big wedding day is finished. However, you just may want to see how it looks displaying a few of your gifts, cards, and add a few photographs even.

Wood Serving Tray

Serving hors d’oeuvres’ at your fall wedding? Be cute and stylish but still in the rustic realm with this idea! Our Large 6 Section Tray with Slotted Handles is an unfinished handmade wooden tray that would be ideal for serving individual appetizers. Upon ordering, receive six of these lovely handy trays that also serve as tea and coffee or condiment trays. Choose to paint, stain, or leave the surface as it appears. Once the wedding affairs are complete, use these wooden trays for their original purposes or organize various sections throughout your home, office, or work station.

Various candies

Nothing spells out love than LOVE itself! Fall wedding planning and ideas along with holidays like Valentines fit perfectly in this scenario. Candy buffets are the “in-thing” these days. They are fun, easy to do, and can be inexpensive. Best way to put this together is go to our website and color coordinate your candy with the wedding hues. Give yourself plenty of time for your candy to arrive for your special day. Please double check with your reception venue to make sure you are able to have a candy buffet table. Most places do not consider candy buffets to be considered outside food so therefore may be okay, but please get it approved first. These candy display dishes are available through us, Candy Concepts Inc., so check us out:

  • LOVE Letter Ceramic Dish Set
  • 4-Piece Round Glass Canister Set w/Lids
  • ½ Gallon Glass Penny Candy Jars
  • 1 Gallon Glass Penny Candy Jars
  • 5 ¼ Gallon Barrel Canister with Lid
  • And so many, many, more!

Be creative, utilize these products throughout your facility or home for other purposes.

Decorative Display Tubs

Nothing says country more than displaying beverages in metal tubs. These tubs range in shapes, sizes, and material. Galvanized Round or Oval, Shiny Steel or Round, Steel Large or Oval. So many choices to choose from but a great opportunity. Sizes range from one gallon tubs all the way up to the17 gallon tubs. The two gallon tub has a capacity of 15 standard sized beverages (12 ounces) while the 10.5 gallon tub capacity is 40 beverages of the same size. Beverage tables can range from water, juice, soda and yes of course, your adult beverages too. These country style tubs offer tons of displaying possibilities even after the wedding is over. But for now, the smaller tubs can be used for bubbles, handmade bird seed packets to bless the Bride and Groom as they walk out of the festivities as Mr. & Mrs. arm in arm.

Rustic Centerpiece

Centerpieces are eye catching and your chance to show your creativity side for fall wedding ideas. Dress up your tables with an eye-catching display. Here’s your chance to blend in the wedding colors with the bride and groom, the ceremony, and the rustic appeal you are attempting to achieve. Beautiful dried neutral colored flowers with a variety of greenery along with nuts and berries make up a wonderful center for the Linen Lined Round Wire Basket (pictured on left). These linen lined wire baskets also come in rectangular as well. Old glass bottles and rustic wood always go together just like this 10 Glass Bottle Set in a Wood Box (pictured in the center-“better together” not included). Use with candles, flowers or use your imagination and create your own memorable centerpiece. This display comes with five small bottles, three medium bottles, three large bottles but one is a different shape. All of which are included in a weathered, antique inspired wooden box.
