Get Ready to "Fall" in Love With These Amazing Autumn Wedding Decorations!

Getting married in the fall has become every bit as popular as summer weddings always have been. While June was originally the month when most marriages took place, we see couples planning for just as many in September and October these days. Planning a fall wedding, especially in an area where the leaves are turning all sorts of brilliant colors, can be a beautiful thing. has used the colors and symbols of this season to bring you some wonderful wedding accessories. 

Rich Fall Colors
The brilliant colors that emerge every fall are exquisite colors for decorating a wedding ceremony and reception. Reds, oranges, and browns offer a rich color palette that can have both a dramatic effect or give off a warm, rustic feeling. Bringing in the dark greens, like on the evergreens that don't change color this time of year, looks wonderful too. 

You can also pull inspiration from the bare trees after the leaves have fallen, using natural browns found in the wood. Burlap ties in nicely with all of this. Metallic golds blend in very well too. Don't be afraid to mix it up a little and use popular autumn patterns such as plaid. For example, our Red Plaid Throws piled up in a basket are a nice addition to a cool, evening reception. Guests that feel a chill can use them to warm up, or to take a trip outside to a fire pit for s'mores. (Always a fun fall reception activity!)  

The colorful leaves in the trees and on the ground everywhere that you look make excellent decorations, as well as symbols on escort cards, favors, invitations, wedding programs, and more. You can use them in centerpiece arrangements or scattered down a reception table. Another wonderful idea is to let your flower girl toss them from her basket instead of flower petals. 

Pumpkins are most definitely a symbol of fall. This time of year, you'll have no trouble finding the real thing at every supermarket, and pumpkin patches are all open for the season. For DIY brides, the craft stores are filled with the artificial kind that work well in decorations that you want to make ahead of time without the worry of them rotting. Our online wedding decoration store has quite a few gorgeous golden pumpkin accessories for your wedding so that you can easily add that special fall touch everywhere that your guests look.  

Those acorns that are also falling from the trees are another nice autumn symbol. These Gold Dipped Ceramic Acorn Salt & Pepper Shakers fit in beautifully with a fall theme and look much nicer than the regular ones that your reception venue will probably provide. They also make nice favors for your guests to take home.  

Those are just a few of the marvelous items you will find in our online wedding accessory store to help you pull off a memorable fall wedding. It doesn't matter which season you decide to tie the knot in when you shop at We carry a large variety of just about everything you need to decorate an amazing wedding ceremony and reception, no matter what the time of year may be.

Are You THAT Wedding Guest?

We've all been to a wedding where at least one or two of the guests got a little out of line. Whether you're in the bridal party or there as a guest, dealing with difficult guests can be incredibly frustrating. If you're going to a wedding, you'll probably try to be on your best behavior - but what if you commit one of these classic wedding guest faux pas without even trying to?  The team at has compiled a quick list of some of the most common (and annoying) wedding guest faux pas. Don't get caught doing one of these! 1.  Not Controlling Your Children Misbehaving children can ruin an event faster than almost anything else.

Military Weddings

You've decided to have a military wedding—complete with all the pomp and circumstance such a formal affair entails. Here some tips on planning the wedding of your dreams that still conforms to longstanding military tradition and protocol. Wedding Attire The main difference between a military wedding and a civilian wedding is that the bride and/or groom will be in uniform. An officer or enlisted personnel in the bridal party wears uniforms that comply with the formality of the wedding and seasonal uniform regulations. For commissioned officers, the evening or mess dress uniform is equivalent to the civilian black tie. Commissioned officers who elect to wear a sword or saber with their uniform should stand to the left of the bride so as to protect her from the blade. For enlisted personnel, dress blues or Army greens should be worn. Remember, never wear a boutonnière with a military uniform. Military ribbons or medals are the only adornments permitted on the uniform. The bride wh
