Looking for inspiration for your fall wedding tablescapes? No matter whether you are going for something more subtle or looking to transport guests into a fall wonderland, we’ve compiled a few stunning fall wedding table styles to help get you started or to help you top off an already themed space.

SOMETHING BLUE

This fall twist is perfect for any outdoor wedding. The non-traditional fall color of blue offsets, yet complements, the expected hues and seasonal flair like these decorative pumpkins. This setup gently introduces guests to fall with light-colored flowers matching the changing seasons around you. And, the dusty blue table linens will mirror Virginia’s Blue Ridge Mountain views. Additionally, the lantern candle holders and greenery serve as the pumpkin’s companions. Don’t forget to add extra candles, decorative glasses, artisan eats and stylish table numbers.

FALL ROMANCE

As you enter this couple’s reception, floral branches decorate the ceiling, revealing long wedding tables ripe with pastel flowers, glowing candles and dainty dinnerware. These tent-length banquet tables allow guests to dine all together, while creating an ethereal look. Adding to an already eye-catching display, this couple created greenery-filled flower arrangements that add visible texture complemented with soft pastel flowers. The pink and golden undertones of the plates add a delicate feel, and the warm glow from the candles creates a cozy scene inside the tent. This décor is perfect for a couple looking to create garden romance.

SEASONAL FLAIR

Speaking of an open, airy feel, this outdoor setup merges beautifully with nature, especially fall in Virginia wine country. The darker leaves and greenery in these antique vases create an earthy feel, while the delicate pink and yellow flowers add a sweet flair. As guests admire this floral masterpiece, they can enjoy charcuterie board treats with rustic silverware atop wood tables. The dark blue and red highlights on the decorative plates match the floral arrangements while elevating the rustic theme.

AUTUMNAL ELEGANCE

Underneath a shimmering chandelier, gold candelabras steal the show. Bright fall colors pair nicely with the golden tapestry stylishly tapered at the ends of the table while golden pears accentuate its fall luster. These gold touches perfectly subdue the brighter floral arrangements. The candles and crystal glasses blend seamlessly and add a simplicity to the design that doesn’t distract from the other décor. Elaborate décor is always a good idea, but never shy away from adding simple, complementing pieces, too.

RUSTIC CHIC

If you love loose, overflowing arrangements, these centerpieces are right for you. The deep yellow and orange flowers paired with lighter greenery creates contrast, while pheasant feathers and darker vases provide a rustic touch. The loose style of the arrangements transports guests to a peaceful fall field. Consider recreating this design for a barn wedding or outdoor vineyard-side affair to create the best aesthetic. If you want to add to the farm/field theme, consider this couple’s arrangement of wooden charger plates, crystal glassware, neutral colored napkins and horseshoe napkin weights.

A MAGICAL OASIS

This couple wanted to create a dreamier atmosphere, complete with fairy lights, rustic chairs and a muted color palette. This barn setup combines rustic with sophistication, making for a beautiful design. The moss green tablecloths and wooden chairs invite guests into a makeshift forest beneath a starry night. Purple flowers atop golden plates at each place setting add the perfect final touch to round out this magical theme. You can also consider recreating this magical theme outdoors near the vines.

BOLD & BREATHTAKING

The blending of bold and gold hues in this reception space creates a dramatic yet classy feel. Scattered fairy lights and crystal chandeliers perfectly complement the golden chairs and flower stands while also brightening the space. The flowers—practically standing on their own—add dark, rich seasonal flair that only accentuates the wood aspects of this venue. Adding varying height between the tall and low centerpieces also adds depth to the space and helps the seamless merging of the color palette with the dark blue table linens.
