Green Fall Wedding – Changing Leaves

The great thing about using leaves in your wedding décor is they are plentiful, free and nothing screams “Fall” like a red, gold or orange leaf motif. Scatter them across guest tables, make your bouquets with them, or string them up to make an amazing backdrop curtain.

Eco-chic Autumn Wedding – Apple of My Eye

Johnny Appleseed would totally dig this eco-chic fall wedding theme. You can create several amazing, earth-friendly tablescapes using red, green or yellow apples. You can dry apple peels and make apple cinnamon potpourri as DIY favors for your guests. And don’t forget to make a signature cocktail or two featuring this juicy fruit.

Eco-friendly Fall Wedding– Wine Harvest

Wine weddings can be an elegant fall wedding theme. The deep purple or red wedding is very intense and dramatic. In a winery wedding, you are supporting local businesses. Booking a local winery for your wedding is an amazing way to be sustainable. Recycle while staying on theme by incorporating old grape vines into your bouquet and using used wine corks in your décor.

Eco-chic Autumn Wedding – Pretty Pumpkins

Pumpkins are bright and inviting and nothing says “welcome to fall” like a bright orange one! This harvest theme works great for rustic and rural weddings. Make sure to put pumpkin on the menu as a yummy homage to the season. Decorate with whole pumpkins and you can reuse them after the wedding in pies & jack o lanterns. (Melissa’s note- They also come in white and light green, if bright orange isn’t really your color.)

Eco-friendly Fall Wedding– Waving Wheat

If strong colors aren’t your cup of chai tea, consider a wheat motif. Sheaves of wheat or even cornstalks are readily available from October 1st on and they are super inexpensive. The wheat’s colors of light gold work well with tans, winter white or even a blush pink. Pick up several bundles to stage around your wedding and reception areas, You can make an awesomely Autumn table runner of loose sheaves. And wheat sheaves elevate a simple white wedding cake to fall perfection.
