10 Unforgettable Fall Wedding Centerpieces

Fall is one of our favorite times for weddings. (I loved fall so much that I got married in October!) And it just so happens to be one of the most popular months to say “I Do” in. If you’re one of those fall couples, you’re probably already on the hunt for fun and seasonal decor, including fall wedding centerpiece ideas.

While a great selection of fall wedding flowers will be in season (including Asiatic Lily, Asters, Calla Lilies, Chrysanthemums, Dahlias, Gerbera daisies, Gladioli, Marigolds, Roses, Sunflowers, and Zinnias), one of our favorite things about fall is that you can experiment with more non-floral arrangements than in other seasons.

No matter what you choose, let’s face it: you don’t want just any old boring centerpiece that’s been done a million times. You want something that captures the essence of fall, feels unique, and makes your guests say “I really wish we had THAT at our wedding.”

That’s why we’ve rounded up 10 non-traditional ideas for fall wedding centerpieces that will knock your socks off (but hopefully not your guests’ socks, because that would be awkward). Whether you choose flowers, fruits, or feathers for your fall wedding centerpieces, the key is to think cozy, warm, and textured. Opt for colors like oranges, deep reds, and rich browns, and incorporate natural elements like leaves, branches, pumpkins, and apples. From pumpkin patches to hanging floral chandeliers, these centerpieces are anything but basic and will add that extra special touch to your big day. So, grab yourself a pumpkin spice latte and let these unforgettable fall wedding centerpieces inspire you.

Greenery Garlands

Garland made of greenery is always beautiful, especially during the fall. Buy on Etsy.

There are so many crafty centerpiece ideas that would be perfect for a fall wedding, including a DIY herb and greenery (like olive branches or eucalyptus) garland. Greenery is fairly easy to work with as a beginner (and easier than flowers). This video helps explain how to make one on your own:

And while I love that version, if you’re not crafty (like me) there are also several online stores where you can buy them, such as Etsy and even Amazon.

Feather Bouquets

Feather bouquets are completely unique and unexpected.

If you’re looking for something to decorate your fall wedding tables aside from flowers, feathers make a great centerpiece alternative. They also allow you to use those fun vases and pitchers you might have found. I’m not personally a fan of anything fluffy (like ostrich feathers), but something more structured like pheasant feathers can look great in a white vase or pitcher. You can find a wide range of feathers here.

Mini White Pumpkins

Try a white pumpkin centerpiece for a fall wedding.

And of course, nothing says fall more than pumpkins. While orange and yellow pumpkins and gourds are always great, I really love white pumpkins for an unexpected fall wedding centerpiece. And they work with so many more wedding color palettes!

Pomegranate Bowls

Pomegranates look pretty and vibrant on a fall table.

If color is more your thing, fruits like pomegranates make a great fall/winter centerpiece. Pair them with pine cones in a big wood bowl or with pears or artichokes for a bit of green. You can opt for real of faux ones, even dried.
