Hi, lovelies! It’s fall, which means apple orchards, pumpkin picking, donut eating, pumpkin spice latte-ing, cute bootie-wearing and all the fun fall things are underway! And sweater weather. I love sweater weather.
One of the best themes for fall is an apple themed wedding. We love the idea of “apple-y ever after” as your motto, apples throughout your decor, and pops of color in red or green. From apple themed wedding invitations to centerpieces, apple party favors to bridesmaid dresses, we’ve found everything you need to plan this wedding theme from start to finish.
Ready to get started? Let’s go!
Apple Themed Wedding Ideas
As with any great wedding theme, you should kick it off with the invitation. The invitation, when selected early in your planning process, can actually be quite helpful in determining the color palette, tone, and thematic elements you’ll use throughout your ceremony and reception.
Here are some apple themed wedding invitations to inspire you!
1. Choose apple wedding invitations.
It’s already October, so if you’re in need of invitations sent um, as soon as possible, these will do the trick! They have an apple harvest theme and are available to edit and print yourself (or upload and print at your favorite print shop). These are by LettersAndDust.
Or this Apple Harvest Design by BournePaperCo.
Or this invitation with an apple theme — and a princess / Snow White underlying theme, too! Fun idea. By Sapphiredigitalworks.
If you want printed invitations, here are a few other styles! I love this apple themed wedding invitation by Kayleigh DuMond.

2. Send apple save the dates.

3. Choose an apple inspired wedding color palette.
If you’re planning an apple wedding in the fall, typically you’ll choose rich reds and gold. If you’re planning a spring apple wedding, use Granny Smith apples as your color inspiration: bright green apples are a fun spring or summer inspiration.
4. Create apple centerpieces for your wedding.
Large glass hurricane-style vases or round vases like these make great centerpieces filled with apples. If you don’t want to use fresh apples, that’s fine: use realistic-looking apples to fill the inside. As a bonus, you can re-use these as home decor later, so they’ll get plenty of use.
These realistic apple fillers are one option; they’re available in red, green, or yellow varieties.
Here is a glass hurricane option:

Perhaps an apple centerpiece isn’t your thing; that’s OK. Instead, you can use greenery like this and pops of gold (candle holders, chargers, nice silverware, etc.) and add an apple-themed wedding flair with deep red velvet table runners. This pop of color can incorporate your theme without being all “apple-y”. :) By MagpieLinens.

In addition, you can add the pop of color — just like the tables! — to our bouquet. Simply wrap the bouquet handle with a deep red velvet ribbon, like this by EmmaLinh.
