8 Beautiful and Fun Small Wedding Ideas for Fall | Discovering

It’s that time of year when our couples are searching for some small wedding ideas for fall. We’re more than happy to help! This is one of our favorite times of year for weddings here in Orlando.

Fall weddings offer cooler temperatures, seasonal produce, and gorgeous natural landscapes provided by Mother Nature. Take advantage of these iconic offerings for your fall wedding. Whether you want to include autumn colors in your wedding decorations or go with a rustic fall wedding theme, you can never go wrong with these small wedding ideas for fall!


#1 - Sunflower fields

Fall means acres and acres of sunflowers! Take advantage of sunflower season and host your fall wedding in a sunflower field. Add in some vintage farmhouse tables, mismatched chairs, and cozy wood elements to complete your fall wedding theme. You and your guests will love the abundant yellow blooming sunflowers, which is a perfect backdrop for your photos!

#2 - Barn weddings

There’s a reason venues like BLB Hacienda here in Orlando are so popular for fall weddings. They’re the perfect venue choice to enhance a fall wedding theme! Be sure to include plenty of twinkling lights and decorative autumnal elements to set the mood for your barn wedding. Deck out your tables with seasonal fall flowers and an abundance of candlelight over burlap and lace. Nothing says cozy like a fall barn wedding!

#3 - Cornfields

When it comes to small wedding ideas for fall, we suggest taking advantage of fall’s natural scenery. Why not host your wedding ceremony and reception in an abundant cornfield? Add a few bohemian touches like barrels, white pumpkins, and a fall flower arch to really set the tone.

If your fall event is in the middle of a cornfield, don’t forget to include corn on your menu! Whether you decide to incorporate it in your main entrée or set up a corn on the cob food stand with all the fixings, this will be right in line with your fall wedding venue!

#4 - Miniature Pies

Wedding cake is delicious, but one of our favorite small wedding ideas for fall is serving up individual miniature pies for dessert! Cake isn’t for everyone, so fall-flavored pies are a good alternative for those non-cake lovers or couples who want to add a fun small fall element to their wedding. Choose between classic fall pies such as pumpkin, pecan, apple, or sweet potato to satisfy your sweet tooth.

#5 - Hot Beverage Bars

With fall’s cooler weather, it’s a great idea to have a hot chocolate or hot apple cider bar. Your guests will thank you for the warm refreshments, especially for chilly outdoor ceremonies! Keep the beverage bar simple or deck it out with cinnamon, marshmallows, and peppermint stick garnishes for your guests to enjoy.

#6 - Fall Signature Cocktails

Another of our favorite small wedding ideas for fall is serving up seasonal signature drinks! For a fun and spicy beverage, combine a few rich flavors such as dark rum paired with sweet apples and cinnamon, or bourbon infused with nutmeg and vanilla bean. For a lighter refreshment, sparkling Prosecco with seasonal fall fruit like pears would be a perfect addition to your bar. Be sure to create a fun and personal name for your signature fall cocktails, and consider gifting your guests miniature portions of the drink with a recipe for them to recreate it at home!

#7 - Fall fruit seating cards

Embrace the season and use seasonal fruit as escort or seating cards. These small, personalized alternatives to traditional paper cards will cheerfully greet your guests and direct them to their seats. Autumn fruits like apples, pears, cranberries, pomegranates, or persimmons will tie into your fall wedding theme and add some fun color and fall flair to your tables!

#8 - Fall wedding table décor

One of the easiest small wedding ideas for fall to incorporate into your wedding design is the table décor! Nothing says fall like pumpkins, right? Use pumpkins of all sizes to decorate your reception area. Partner your pumpkins with antlers, wood elements, and other gourds to complete your fall theme. You can also add fall foliage into your floral centerpieces and beautiful fall leaves around the table. Your guests should see fall everywhere in your wedding design!
