Or you could add a pie and coffee bar to offset the drinks that have been served at the tail end of your wedding. No matter how you do it, you could wow your guests with this one idea.

Pumpkin Wedding Décor

Ok, so we are not talking about a carved Halloween pumpkin. But the use of pumpkins and gourds placed strategically makes sense for your fall wedding. When you are shopping for pumpkins especially, make sure that you have a good stem, so that you won't get any rotting. Tap the pumpkin. If it has a hollow sound, it is not overripe. So what can you do with pumpkins in a wedding?

  • Line the walkway or aisle where you will be walking.
  • Place a group of pumpkins, gourds and leaves in the front of your church or chapel instead of flowers
  • Use very small pumpkins on a cake plate as a wedding center piece. Invite your guests to take one home. You could also use some apples with the pumpkins
  • Hollow out little pumpkins and place a dollar store votive inside. Add a candle and you have some very nice lighting
