16 Fall Wedding Centerpieces With Year-Round Appeal

With striking foliage and romantic floral varieties, it’s easy to see why fall is the most popular wedding season. Full disclosure: the PartySlate team starts dreaming of fall wedding centerpieces by the middle of August.

Wedding centerpieces encapsulate everything from your wedding style to your wedding color palette. Moreover, beautiful centerpieces heighten the meaningful moments shared over dinner — while also ensuring your wedding album is picture-perfect.

Our favorite fall wedding ideas start with curated centerpieces. We’ve searched through hundreds of real wedding albums on PartySlate to bring you our favorite 16 tablescape ideas for this bountiful season.

From rustic fall wedding centerpieces to elegant linen and accents, the striking beauty of autumn wedding décor has never been more inspiring.

Rethink the traditional centerpiece with lavish floral décor that extends beyond the tablescape — like this romantic installation of pink and champagne wedding blooms.

Let delicate fruits inspire your tablescape. We love how golden pears complement the cheerful napkins while blueberries bring out the rich blues of the glassware and linen. 

Elevate your fall wedding centerpiece with feathery pampas grass and a golden vase that blurs the line between pumpkin and abstract décor.

Amber lamp shades lend additional warmth to this inviting tablescape laden with vintage books, pomegranates, and fall-hued florals.

Capture the abundance of the autumn season with lavish greenery and a backdrop of autumn leaves — while letting the linen, glassware, and seating evoke your wedding style.

Let walnut farm tables be the perfect blank canvas for your autumn tablescape filled with rustic pottery, green amaranth, and fall fruits.

Create a romantic space for you and your beloved with lavish pink florals and mauve amaranthus that encircle both the top and bottom of your sweetheart table.

Go asymmetrical with an overhanging floral installation at the end of your king’s table — and make sure to cast soft illumination with plenty of candlelight.

Capture the drama of the season with a free-floating centerpiece that shifts from one hue to another — just like real autumn foliage.
