Fall Wedding Must Haves

There's more to fall than pumpkin spice lattes and cozy sweaters (though those are nice, too). With the shift to cooler temps comes one of the prettiest wedding seasons! To help you give your ceremony and reception an autumnal aesthetic, we pulled together five must-haves that represent the hallmarks of the season.

1. The Cake Topper
There's something so quintessentially fall about a pretty wooden cake topper. This rustic option looks particularly striking when paired with a rustic naked wedding cake, but it would sit pretty on any tiered confection. "Mr. and Mrs. Cake Topper", $38, BHLDN

2. The Accessory
Whether you pair it with a veil or use it as your only hair accessory, a delicate crystal headdress is a stunning addition to your wedding dress. The shape of this new Jenny Packham piece reminds us of fall foliage and adds just enough understated sparkle to a big-day look. "Tzarina" crystal bridal headdress, about $466, Jenny Packham

3. The Makeup
A berry-hued lip is practically a must-have for your fall wedding. This plum shade is super moisturizing thanks to its cheek-stain inspired formula. (Plus, could the name be more perfect?) Power Pigment in "Blushing Bride", $24, Tarte available at Sephora

4. The Dress
Pair this amazing high-neck, cap-sleeve ball gown with a bouquet bursting with autumnal hues, and you'll be a seasonal knockout down the aisle. Chantilly lace and silk faille ball gown, Marchesa

5. The Favor
You don't have to tie the knot in the Big Apple to give your guests some of New York City's best ice cream. Brooklyn-based Blue Marble ships their mini cups nationally. And with seasonal flavors like Pumpkin Ice Cream and Spiced Cider Sorbet, these sweet treats are are an appropriate — and delicious — fall favor. (Their classic Sea Salt Caramel flavor is also a fitting choice for autumnal nuptials). Bonus: You can customize the labels to coordinate your theme for an additional fee. Mini Ice Cream Cups, $72 for a case of 24, Blue Marble Ice Cream
