pumpkin themed wedding ideas

If you’re thinking…

hmm, okay, pumpkins: what’s the big deal, Emma? Can I really make it a theme? Yes!

You know me well enough by now to know that virtually ANYTHING can be made into a theme, and it can be done with elegance — when done properly.

So, pumpkins. For starters, pumpkins are the sign of the season. As soon as they start bringing out those mini pumpkins at the grocery store, you know the leaves are just about to start changing color. I get inspired for home pumpkin decor even before I start seeing those fun fall doormats popping up everywhere.

Like this. I’m loving it! By HamlinRowShop. You, too?

And even before I break out my fave pair of fall boots! And wayyyyy before your first sip of Pumpkin Spice Latte or you slip on that pumpkin spice engagement ring (yup, it’s a thing!)

As a rule of thumb, planning a pumpkin themed wedding — as with all themes — you needn’t use every single pumpkin-inspired find. Be specific on which pumpkin ideas you like best. Then infuse your decor with rich color and seasonal pampas grass, sunflowers, robust flower arrangements, etc.

So, don’t overdo it: choose a few of your faves and remember, less is more.

Let’s begin with where, when, and how to plan this incredibly fun wedding theme.

Women's Dresses

For your pumpkin inspired wedding, dream of where you’d like to tie the knot.

Where to plan a pumpkin wedding

Where do you envision tying the knot for the ceremony? Indoors, or outdoors? Are you dreaming of outdoors near a pumpkin patch or perhaps a barn wedding? The time of year you get married will obviously be during the fall months, so keep in mind the outdoor temps. You can plan a beautiful fall wedding with pumpkin decor indoors: in a church or other place of worship, a decked-out banquet hall or ballroom also fits the bill.

Once you decide where you’ll tie the knot, the details and pumpkin-inspired decorations can start to fall into place.

When to plan a pumpkin wedding theme

Ideally, your wedding date for a fall wedding like this will occur in September, October, or even through November.

Do I have to use orange pumpkins?

Nope! Think outside the box: this theme is incredibly versatile. For traditional fall colors, choose orange pumpkin motifs. Planning a later fall wedding or prefer a classic white option? Choose rustic white pumpkins. Go classic and elegant — or fun and modern. Everything you decide is up to you! You can even go with velvet pumpkins in the cooler months.

We’ve hand-picked over fifty pumpkin wedding invitations, favors, decorations, cake toppers, bridesmaid gift ideas, table decor, centerpieces, and more to help you pick items that will create YOUR dream wedding.

Women's Dresses
