Fall Wedding Table Decor Ideas You Can Do

That Will Not Break The Budget

The charm of a fall wedding can be irresistible! The cooler temperatures, the vibrant colors that cover the natural landscape, and the romantic warm nature of being cozy with friends and family. A fall wedding is a great time to embrace the warmer color wheel and dive into rich earthy tones and textures. To get inspiration for your fall wedding, take a look at 5 Rustic Fall Table Decor Ideas. 



Your centerpieces set the stage for the entire reception. Apart from the food (and cake), they are a way to polish off your theme and showcase your artistic vision. A rustic centerpiece is full of vibrant colors, splashes of bright mixed in with the golden hues of autumn, and a bold statement piece. 

Incorporate items such as vintage lanterns, long elegant candles, bright branches with leaves, potted succulents for a splash of green, or antique bottles filled with seasonal flowers and plants. If this is not your style, remember that centerpieces don’t have to be complicated. Mason jars with bright flowers and ferns placed next to a simple seasonal plant is an elegant (and easy) way to make your table setting beautiful and unique. White pumpkins with autumn flowers in the center, maybe? 


Table Numbers

Some people may think that a table number is just that…a number. However, a table number can also be a great way to set your wedding apart from the others and an opportunity to be creative. Think about using a heavy wooden piece (wooden log/stump/slab) or rustic lanterns as your table number. If that is too bold, what about an antique plate or tea saucer as your table marker? 

Still not feeling the rustic vibe, how about an embroidery hoop with a delicate piece of fabric containing the table number in a rich autumn color! A vintage doorknob as your table number? I think you are getting the vibe and realize that the possibilities are endless. 


Linens and things

The table linens at your wedding can be a way to bring everything together, the common thread that weaves your wedding vision. Sometimes the best way to do this is with a simple white linen accompanied with accents of autumn fabrics. Consider an ivory lace table linen if you want something that is more classic and elegant. 

If a full table cloth isn’t your thing, consider using a burlap table runner with lush garland on top. Simple wooden chairs paired with a leafy place setting may also be an interesting way to bring the rustic theme full circle. 


Hanging elements

Your table setting doesn’t have to be limited to the ground. Go beyond the stringing of white lights above the dining guests with a set of hanging lanterns or glass orbs full of twinkling lights and flowers. Hang branches adorned with seasonal leaves from the rafters and cascade votives with white candles. Thinking of something more classy? Place vintage chandeliers dripping with crystal beads from the ceiling, accent with elegant candles on each mimicking a time when things were simpler.



Think about incorporating interesting items into the backdrop of the reception location. A wood backdrop behind the bridal party or a rustic wooden board that showcases the menu and signature drinks for the wedding. Old furniture adorned with pictures of you and your partner or family members who are no longer with you to celebrate the occasion. Not a wooden sign type of person, think about using rustic wreaths around the perimeter of the reception hall to tie in your wedding colors.
