Styling a Wedding: Squash, Gourds & Pumpkins

In my previous Styling a Wedding post, I’ve already featured pumpkins, so you must be wondering why another pumpkin post this week.  Why? All the ideas couldn’t fit into just one post, so I had to do a second one.

Combined with other elements of the season such as berries, flowers, jars, and candles, pumpkins would make nice accents on the reception table.

This is one of my favorite fall wedding ideas – warm squash soup served in real pumpkin bowls.

Pumpkins and Autumn leaves look great together, and an effortless way to spruce up the ground.

Decorate an outdoor wedding ceremony with real pumpkins lining up the aisle or piled in one corner to welcome guests on their arrival.

Yes, incorporating pumpkins in a fall wedding can be tasteful if done right. It’s not about occupying every space with gourds, but choosing the ideas carefully, making sure that styling doesn’t look forced or exaggerated.  So, which of these styles would you like to try on your fall wedding?
