Gather inspiration from the changing of the seasons! While fall weddings may conjure images of woodland animals, arbor groves, and scattered oak leaves, we also realize these features are hard to come by in Las Vegas, Nevada. Therefore in honor of all brides hosting October and November receptions, let’s discover what autumn décor looks like for Las Vegas weddings.
Brides, in the following photographs, you’ll see rousing displays of reception table décor created by local vendors. Originally displayed throughout Bridal Spectacular’s bridal show in August, these designs offer opportunities for any bridal style. Discover which tablescape fashions best suit your wedding visions!
With wooden chairs, full fall foliage in cute carved boxes, and whimsical touches through silverware and floral napkin folding, this reception table establishes a down-to-earth autumnal theme. Choose colors that can be found in nature, like sunny gold, sage green, and deep-sea teal. Also, select natural textures for centerpieces and seating. Then to bring modernity to this traditional theme, include clear square plates, thin-stemmed goblets, and crepe linens.
Fall doesn’t mandate muted colors. Transform an autumnal color palette into a vivacious party place with bright tones. However, to keep the eye focused, select colors from similar shades (i.e. pair yellow with pink and orange, not green or blue). To balance intense color and pattern, choose short, simple centerpieces and basic modern place settings. Finalize your design with napkins and chair linens in autumnal tones, like warm yellow and golden brown.
Before the Frost
Balance the cusp between fall and winter with a simple design. Select two neutral tones for an elegant color scheme, such as rich mocha and pure white. Then incorporate well-crafted natural elements for décor, like Chiavari chairs wrapped in silk and sprawling dry driftwood laden with white blossoms. Lastly, to bring exquisite enchantment, include glimmering crystal, lit candles, and polished silver accents.
Soft and Bright
For autumn brides who like bright colors, this style demonstrates how easily vibrancy can be used beyond spring weddings. Play with two lively shades for your color scheme, keeping one of these as a subtle accent tone. With only one dominant color in the mix (in this case, pink), you can go bold. Decorate with colorful linens. Try tall, dramatic centerpieces filled with flowers in muted shades of your wedding colors. Bring balance with simple place settings. The final key is to use silver, instead of white, for a neutral tone that lets guests know you’re aware of the autumn season.
Nectar of Nature
Bring the woods to your wedding! Choose quintessential autumn colors that can be found throughout The Great Outdoors. Then present these in a classy, polished manner. A dark brown tablecloth reflects tree bark while green napkins embrace moss accents. The flowers and grasses add an authentic edge, and the tall glass cubes hearken to a clear waterfall. With white dishes and white chair linens to bring a crisp, clean edge, this wedding reception stylishly reflects an eco-friendly bride in the twenty-first century.
With this D.I.Y. project, soak up the last of the summer spirit. Take color inspiration from fresh fruits and flowers. Then incorporate these pieces into your reception décor. Keep the design simple and uncluttered. Think clean lines, from the napkin folding to the lack of adornment on plates, utensils, and glassware. While centerpieces are short and simple, surprise guests with fresh-cut gerbera daisies in a recyclable bottle or stout Mason jar.
Brides, now that you know with which designs you most connect, choose to partner with Las Vegas wedding professionals to customize your favorite look for your own upcoming wedding!
