Contrary to popular belief, fall weddings and fall decor in general doesn’t always need to be only about the bold reds and oranges that we generally associate this season with. In fact, if you ask me, I wouldn’t choose these colors for my fall wedding! Spice things up a bit, make your guests be dazzled by your decor choices, and choose colors that are still fall in nature, but off the beaten path for color palette choices!
So for our off the beaten path ideas, I wanted to highlight an exciting and very unused fall color.. call it what you want but I like “mustard” or “straw”. Okay, maybe not your conventional color names, but mustard colors in the fall are fresh, fun and different! Now luckily since depending on where your wedding will be, the grass or leaves may already be a strawish color from the hot summer months, so pair the natural backdrop with light colored dresses for the maids (I love this light blue-grey pairing of the dresses with the outdoors)! Blend traditional fall ideas like yummy pies for desserts, with more unique ideas for favors like these pies in a mason jar (see below). Draw on the outdoors and incorporate your mustard color palette by using hay bales for seating for your ceremony or during your cocktail hour (last photo below) and for the bouquet, keeping with the same colors and offbeat theme, chose a thistle bouquet (I love the one below that this bride is holding).
This is only the start to off the beaten path fall wedding ideas, but with a little creativity there are plenty of ways to differentiate your big day from all the rest of the fall weddings this season and next!
