For fall wedding couples, you should be in serious planning mode by now. But if you’re still searching for a way to capture the heartwarming autumn mood perfectly, consider an apple theme! Envision an orchard venue decorated with vintage-rustic elements, plus charming apple accents gracing both the ceremony and reception. Our inspiration board below features all these and more—to help you style an utterly appealing apple-themed fall wedding in gorgeous hues of burgundy!
Apple-inspired Elements in Burgundy for Your Autumn Wedding
Your wedding decor gets a head start with the ideal venue—a lush apple orchard (1), of course! But getting the word out about your chosen theme happens way before that, with lovely vintage-rustic style invitations (2). And for your bridal bouquet (3), go for a sweet and simple posy of orchard greenery and petite meadow flowers for a casual, country look.
Plan an inviting reception scene for your guests with a pergola (4) set up amidst the apple trees. Adorn it with vintage-rustic elements, such as fancy table ware and glass ware, wildflower centerpieces in hues of orange, burgundy, and peach and a crystal chandelier overhead.
Prepare delightful escort cards using fresh apples (5) with leaf-shaped name tags pinned to each one. For the table settings (6), create a gorgeous runner of fall greenery and fresh apples. Then, place mini apple pies in jars as surprise treats on each plate!
Even your wedding cake display (7) can echo the rustic fall theme, featuring a woodsy-style tiered cake alongside home-baked desserts like bundt cake, including—what else?—apple pie! And fittingly, the perfect signature wedding drink (8) would be apple cider Moscow Mule cocktails served in frosty copper mugs.
Autumn Favor Ideas for Apple-themed Weddings
Extend the apple motif all the way to your wedding favors, through thoughtfully chosen gift items. These could be hot apple cider drink mixes (9) packaged in muslin bags that are personalized. Other favor ideas may include: apple-cinnamon scented candles, mini apple tarts, caramel apples, apple cider lollipops, apple chips in burlap bags, or jars of homemade apple sauce.
Oh, the apple theme possibilities! And totally doable, too, don’t you agree? Let us know which decorating ideas you’ll be incorporating in your own fall wedding.
