If your wedding is coming up this fall, boy are you a lucky camper (no pun intended…) in the decor department. Those gorgeous autumn leaves can be used in so many ways, and BONUS….they can be FREE~~~

Use them everywhere you can; under your centerpieces (or AS your centerpieces) on each dining table…to decorate the buffet….use them down the aisle instead of a runner or rose petals; let your flower girl or boy toss them, hot glue them to your flowerdog so he/she looks festive as they deliver your rings at your ceremony (OKAY, I’M KIDDING, JUST WANTED TO SEE IF YOU WERE PAYING ATTENTION…..)  (This beautiful centerpiece is courtesy of a great blog, “Lucky Stone”, and you can see how it could be adapted to all sorts of settings. I’d add little birds, maybe some butterflies….let your imagination run wild!

Ideally, your wedding should reflect the season you chose, instead of being some disembodied decorative event, so use those leaves!!! (And donate the money you saved to some enviromental charity!
