Wedding Wednesday - our dinner table decoration in the prettiest fall colors....


Hi guys,

I always loved fall, maybe you have recognized it by my posts. Fall posts are always my most read and also the ones I put the most effort into. The colors of the leaves, the fresh cool air, the mysterious fog and overall the happiness for the holiday season starts.

So when we got enganged last Christmas Eve (wow it already has been a month) I already knew I wanted to get married in fall to have the perfect fall themed wedding.

But let´s go back when I had to decide on the decoration and the color theme. I always wanted a dark orange and a rich burgundy color for my wedding but let´s just say I took a little detour before I finally decided. 

Last year was the year of the Great Gatsby or 20´s inspired weddings (almost everyone we knew and the people they knew took advantage of that theme) and so I thought maybe I would love a  black and gold wedding theme full of sequins. Don´t get me wrong I love it at anytime but I ordered many samples for different things I needed and I just couldn´t get into it at all. That was the moment where my rustic and rich colored fall wedding theme came back to my mind and I took it right away. 

After that the first thing I did was to order two books I worked with quite a lot (Style me Pretty Weddings and The Knot Ultimate Wedding Lookbook) and the other thing was that I created a new Pinterest board all things fall wedding and finally my decor imaginations came together.

I started of with the wooden discs and the jute table runner. This was the rustic point. Another thing I knew I wanted were plenty of pumpkins. I love pumpkins, not only the shape but the rich colors and also the taste. We have lots of pumpkin patches nearby so the only problem was if they would already be available in the middle of September. 
To add some chic to the rustic feeling I got two golden brass candle holder. Each of them was made for long white taper candles. Looked so elegant and so beautiful at night. The windlights had been a DIY project I made with my SIL and tured out very pretty (view the whole post here). So now that all of the decoration is complete the only thing that is missing here are flowers.
All of the flower arrangement were made by a local flower shop I have gotten bouquets for birthdays, Christmas or other special ocassions for year and I absolutely trusted them. And they did not disappoint at all. They made the most beautiful bouquets and flower arrangements I have ever seen. 

All the stationery like the table cards, the seating chart and the name cards are made by Kartchenmacherei. de, I have used their online shop for everything I needed this far and recently got our Thanksgiving and Family Christmas Dinner invitations made by them.

Maybe this helped a little if you are planning a wedding. It is safe to say your life is easier if you are set on a color theme. This is probably the hardest decicion since it defines your whole day from flower bouquets to decor to the wedding cake.

 I hope you enjoy reading my Wedding Wednesday posts as much as I enjoy writting them for you. Still have two or three in draft I am definitely gonna post. If you want to have a look at what I have already written about head over to the Wedding tab.

Thanks for stopping by. Take care. See you.
