With autumn right around the corner, couples who are planning fall weddings are probably pretty set with the details by now.  But if not, and some clever fall wedding favor ideas are still needed, here are just a few.

 There are many creative themes that the bride and groom can adopt for fall weddings, including sayings such as, “Falling in Love”, “Falling for You” or “Apple of my Eye”. Of course, outside weddings are a must; which saves the couple some money because the fall nature is the perfect wedding backdrop.

The lovebirds can include these sayings with cute favors such as tea bags or hot chocolate packets with a fall scene and the couples’ names and wedding date inscribed on them. There are also many leaf shaped items that can be incorporated, such as chocolates wrapped in golden, orange or red foils.  Candles are another perfect fall favor and the packaging can be personalized as well.  Pear shaped mini brownie bites can also add a fall flare to any wedding as can chocolate covered or caramel apples. Mint tins and small boxes adorned with leaves are also a great idea and can be filled with candies.

As for decorations, a popular trend right now is using pumpkins of all sizes. Many couples have incorporated mini pumpkins in their table centerpieces. The pumpkins can be painted to fit the wedding theme and can be used in almost every aspect of the wedding decor. Another great idea is the use of apples. They can be placed around the cake, used as candle, or used as centerpieces.

The flowers of fall include flowers with shades of red, yellow, orange sun flowers, calla lilies, orchids, dahlias and of course roses. Fall also brings the use of other items such as squash, ornamental berries, greenery like Ivy, Bruce Spruce, dried leaves and a new trend that is growing quite popular: wheat and cotton.
