37 Fall Wedding Invitations from Real Weddings
While every season comes with its own set of wedding-related perks, we think fall offers the most important one—versatility. Since the season starts in mid-September, when it's still relatively warm outside, and goes until mid-December, when temps are much cooler, choosing a fall wedding date truly gives you the opportunity to celebrate however you like.
Tying the knot earlier on in the season? You're basically partying with summer temps. Prefer mid-October? Crisp, refreshing air means your ceremony can take place either indoors or out, and the changing foliage is a dream backdrop for portraits. Waiting until late November or early December? Embrace the chillier weather and plan a cozy indoor bash with lots of rich color and candlelight.
See? Versatile! No matter what kind of fall wedding you're hosting, your stationery is the perfect opportunity to show off your interpretation of the season. Here, we've rounded up our favorite invitations from fall weddings to show you how brides and grooms invited guests to their seasonal celebrations. Whether you and your partner are into a light, airy color scheme (think lots of pastel watercolor blooms!), or a deep-hued one (you'll love many of the following jewel-toned set), you'll find a stationery suite that's sure to inspire and evoke the spirit of the season.
The best part? We've included suites that'll cover just about every autumnal wedding style or theme. From casual Halloween-inspired motifs to elegant, leafy vines, these pretty paper goods represent the very best of what the fall season has to offer. Click through to take a look!
Here, Altogether Lovely Shop proved that red, white, and blue can read autumnal (as opposed to summery!) by opting for deeper, richer shades of the classically patriotic colors.
Vines and Leaves
Our favorite part of this innovative, purple-centric set by Hello Kelly Lee? The gold leaf overlays, which separated the vine-adorned notes.
Black and Gold
A deep-green RSVP card and cheeky insert dressed up this classic, white Leighwood Paperie set for the season.
Charcoal and Silver
The envelopes of this Estudio RoJo suite recalled Pantone's 2015 Color of the Year, "Marsala"—an always-appropriate fall shade. Marbled gray invites, topped with a laurel motif, completed the autumnal aesthetic.
A geode-inspired envelope liner brought a pop of seasonal color to this matte-black and gold set by Designs in Paper.
Meghan Miniello offset translucent invites with a patterned gray backdrop. Black envelopes and a copper wax seal brought the trendy set right into fall.
Merlot velvet ribbon added texture and seasonality to this LBrown Design & Paperie creation.
Boarding School Collective's deep crimson calligraphy imbued these simple deckle-edged notes with October charm.
Silver and Gold
This color combination might be most often associated with winter, but Jenna Stempel's yellow-gold and silver-gray set worked just as well for a September celebration.
Green and Gray
The cards in this RSVPeas suite progressively faded from dark green to gray to white, creating a subtle collective ombré.
Lilac and Leather
Speaking of ombré, Oh Joyful Day used an unexpected color palette—pastel purple, leathery brown, and shades the fell in-between—to create these rustic, gradiented notes.
Modern and Chic
Fluer de Letters went with classic berry hues for this September-wedding stationery suite.
The crisp blues on these Birdwalk Press invites paired beautifully with autumn foliage.
Clean and Simple
This October wedding kept its stationery clean, using classic white and gold writing to subtly nod to the season. Laura Hooper Calligraphy calligraphed the cards.
Fall Color Palette
Everything about this red, yellow, and green set said autumn, from the leaf illustrations to the burgundy wax seal.
The greenery around this couple's cottage venue inspired their lovely stationery, which the bride designed herself.
Green and White
Since floral details were a huge part of this bride and groom's wedding, they wanted to incorporate that into their understated stationery suite. The final result was a green-and-white floral and greenery motif, perfect for their mid-October wedding date.
Rustic and fall go hand in hand. For this couple's Wyoming wedding, these included an illustrated photo of their backdrop, complete with fall foliage, and an antler motif to really highlight the season. And the muted gold calligraphy, created by Proper Prints by Erin, tied both elements together.
Blue and Gold
Simple and chic, this blue-and-gold Harts & Quills wedding invitation was inspired by the wedding's overall color scheme. The two tones are ideal for fall nuptials.
Deep and Dark Hues
What feels more inherently like fall than deep burgundy hues? This hand-lettered suite, designed by Empeccable by Emily, was just the thing for a Thanksgiving wedding.
Blue and Berry
To get the perfect shades of blue and berry, the bride's mother used her Pantone color book—and don't they look great together? The invites were completed with calligraphed writing and a brushstroke motif that was carried throughout the celebration. Anne Robin handled the lettering, while Li Ward painted the envelopes.
Inspired by their Italian wedding location, the bride and groom sent delicate Chelsea Petaja invitations with a Tuscan vibe—a map of the location, watercolor calligraphy, and local greenery tied the look together. While the suite is a total classic, the muted tones and feather accent make this invite worthy of a fall wedding date.
Traditional letterpressed invitations are a fit for any season, but the blue details on this suite (by Cheree Berry Paper) feel especially autumnal. Bonus points for this October couple's use of beautiful vintage stamps.
To give off a romantic, classic vibe, this bride created invitations with floral motifs. Velvet—a fall fabric classic—made them really stand out.
The Great Outdoors
Bryan Greenberg and Jamie Chung have a thing for holidays and the outdoors, which is why they tied the knot in an al fresco celebration on Halloween. The invitations did their theme justice—with the color scheme reminiscent of an autumnal sunset and motifs like arrowheads. Amber Moon Design created the stationery, while Czar Press printed it.
Mountains, antlers, and broncos were found on this couple's Amber Moon Design stationery suite to show the wedding location—Wyoming. The gorgeous scenes had an autumnal vibe.
