There's a multitude of reasons why more and more brides are saying yes to a fall wedding: Not only is the weather (and the light!) totally amazing, couples that say "I do" during autumn have a fresh color palette of warm reds, bright oranges, and pale yellows to work with. While there's plenty we love about fall nuptials, one of our favorite aspects has to be the harvest-inspired reception tablescape.
After a summer filled with bright pink and white centerpieces, there's something downright magical about a warm colored reception and cozy seating. So how do you turn your space into one brimming with harvest-inspired details? While there are a lot of ways to ensure your reception is filled with autumnal style, there are a few surefire ways to give your guests a taste of the season. Among our favorites are seasonal flowers and greenery in warm hues, wooden details, plaid linens, and plenty of pumpkins.
There's no wrong way to create a harvest tablescape, but there are a lot of ways to do it right. Here, we've found 17 of our favorite reception tables for your fall wedding, with countless ideas you can incorporate into your own party. Consider dressing up wooden tables with miniature white pumpkins for a refined look, or go full-on fall with golden apples and a tartan runner. For a more glamorous look, a metallic leaf-shaped charger makes for an eye-catching place setting, or go for something a bit more casual with picnic-style tables dressed up with gourds and greenery.
Whether you prefer the look of classic blooms in a fall-inspired color palette or want to go all out with changing oak and maple leafs and plenty of pumpkins, there's no shortage of ways to create a gorgeous harvest table for your big day.
