Plaid Flannels

Winter nights may call for faux fur jackets and stoles, but fall is all about the plaid flannel. P.S. grooms and their groomsmen can totally embrace the lumberjack vibe and sport plaid shirts instead of plain old white ones, too.

Rustic Ring Bowl

Rather than a ring pillow, hold your wedding bands in a burlap wrapped basket stuffed with hay or even a bird's nest.

Flower Crowns

Festival season may have come and gone, but flower crowns are still in. We suggest ditching the daisies and add some jewel toned blooms and leaves to fall-ify them a bit.

Pinecones

Pinecones may be considered winter decor, but just remember that the solstice isn’t until mid-December, so they’re perfectly appropriate. Plus, you can repurpose them when you’re decorating your house for Christmas.

Want to really embrace those autumn vibes? Ask your girl squad to wear ruby, topaz, emerald or sapphire coloured attire.

Boots

Strappy sandals aren’t exactly what you’d call practical fall footwear, so go with something a bit more seasonally appropriate, like boots. These’ll give your outfit some added flair and are way more comfy than sky high heels.
