Autumn is one of the most beautiful times to get married in the Chesapeake Area! Just as the foliage begins to turn into golden hues of orange and red, gords and pumpkins become readily available for incorporation into wedding decor!
Today’s post features a variety of different ideas on how you can incorporate pumpkins into your autumn wedding!
We love the idea of creating a pumpkin patch for guests to enjoy during your wedding! Pumpkins easily because autumnal wedding favors for everyone to take home with them after the event as well – which makes them an extremely useful gift! A pumpkin patch could also be transformed into an activity for any children at the wedding who can decorate pumpkins while the adults dance the night away!
A Pumpkin Signature Cocktail
Incorporating pumpkin into the actual flavor of your wedding is the perfect way to create a truly autumnal event! This absolutely delicious Pumpkin Pineapple Rum Cocktail by Cookie and Kate will have you dreaming of a spicy signature drink at your reception! We also love the red and white striped straws that add the perfect pop of color to the rustic drink! Love!
Pumpkin Escort Cards
Using pumpkins as escort cards is a brilliant idea! Each guests can find their name, table number, and take the pumpkin with them to their seat. We also love the way this doubles as a small wedding favor, something tangible and autumnal to take home from the big day!
Painted Pumpkin Decor
We love the idea of painting pumpkins and incorporating them into the decor of your wedding day! Melissa describes that, “We were going for neutral colors so we painted the pumpkins white!” and then pumpkins were integrated throughout the wedding-day design! This approach allows the autumnal element to serve as an addition rather than the central focus point, and we love how wonderful everything came together!

An eco-friendly flower vase option, carving out the center of pumpkins to use on your reception tables are a fantastic autumn wedding idea! Fill the hollow center of your pumpkins with shades of red, orange, and yellow to bring the color theme full circle! We also love the smaller orange pumpkins scattered across the table… Truly a rustic idea!

Carved Pumpkin Details
We love the idea of carving the couple’s names into pumpkins using a beautiful script! You could even save time by doing just initials or maybe even a beautiful Monogram? Imagine then lighting these pumpkins and watching the names glow in a soft light… We absolutely love this idea!
