If we had to pick a favorite season for a wedding, it would have to be fall. There’s just so much to love about the season and its’ rich foliage, flavor, colors — fall is a vibe. And so are your fall wedding invites!
Once you’ve nailed down the venue and details, it’s time to find the perfect wedding invitation suite for your event. Luckily, Minted has hundreds of gorgeous fall wedding invites that perfectly capture that autumn feeling.
Before we show you our faves, let’s talk a bit about what makes a great fall wedding invites, and where to find fall wedding inspiration in general.
Finding Inspiration for Your Fall Wedding Invites
As with any wedding date, you’ll want to look for inspiration in what will be around you that time of year. Luckily the fall is one of the best seasons to get married in, as temperatures start to cool and we start to look for coziness in our food and surroundings.
When trying to decide on a design for your fall wedding invites (or even your wedding in general), you’ll want to start with a palette. While fall lends itself to warm, golden hues, don’t be afraid to look towards other neutrals like bisque and slate. And even though pumpkin is a beautiful color, ruby red and even a coral can make it’s way into your wedding color palette and look just as crisp. If using Minted, for instance, you can search for invites by color which will help narrow down the perfect invite.
Next, take a nature walk. If you’re a year out from your fall wedding, you can go outside to watch, smell, and listen to your surroundings. Otherwise, a quick Google search for “fall aesthetic” will help you figure out what inspires you. I love using seasonal-focused foods (like hot cocoa and maple syrup) for wedding favors. They also work throughout your wedding menu. For example, butternut squash soup and mini pumpkin pies are always faves!

Finally, be sure to incorporate texture on your fall wedding invites as well as throughout your big day. For your invites, you could opt for letterpress, which has a warm and regal vibe to it. Check out these letterpress invites that are perfect for fall. Then, tie it all together with finishing touches such as vellum overlays, belly bands, and wax seals. Minted has the most gorgeous collection of color envelopes. The best part? They’re available with free, all-script guest addressing in white, so they really pop.
