As the weather turns chilly, kids go back to school and the leaves start changing colors, we begin to see the signs of fall right around the corner. September is here and we are officially ending summer and entering fall. Pumpkins are always associated with autumn and can be used in a variety of ways at weddings. If you are a bride who is considering a fall wedding and wants to incorporate these colorful vegetables, I have a couple of ideas for you!

Greet your guest with escort cards attached to mini pumpkins, this is a creative first impression that will help set the mood for your event. The mini pumpkins can also double aswedding favors, your guests can take them home as decoration!

Have a large pumpkin pre-carved and cleaned out, waiting for your friends and family to fill with cards. This needs to be done properly so that the inside is completely dry to not ruin any of the items put inside.

Pumpkins are often used as centerpieces in fall weddings. Choose a variety of different size pumpkins and disperse them throughout your tables. You could possibly use these as a guestbook. Have each table sign them and write wishes for your future marriage on them.

Serve your meal in style with pumpkin soup served in mini pumpkins carved out. The dining experience will be enhanced by the serving dish it arrives in! Speak with your caterer prior to this idea and decide who will provide the serving dishes and if they charge extra to prepare it this way. Have your favorite picture of you two together imposed on a pumpkin. Talk about intricate design and impressive carving skills! Have this on an activity table at your wedding. Invite the kids and any family member to participate in a carving contest. In between dancing, your guests can quickly carve a small pumpkin and leave it for display. At the end of the night have a prize for the best carved pumpkin.

Have the pumpkins pre-cleaned inside so you do not cause a mess during your event. Have safe carving knives for the kids, and a designated person there at all times to ensure all of your guests are taking the proper precautions!

End your evening with a favor to celebrate the season. I love these pumpkin-shaped cookies that let your friends leave with sweet memories of the night! What are other ways you have seen pumpkins used Autumn weddings?
