An old inn or a makeshift barn, surrounded by a beautiful countryside landscape is the perfect setting for a wedding celebration in autumn.

Once the guests arrive, they must be greeted with the burlap bags filled with cookies, crackers, peanuts, a personalized bottle of juice and the program for that evening. And for those coming from the country and that will spend the night there, be prepared with maps of the area.

Use natural elements such as branches, berries, gourds and leaves. Opt for tablecloths and accents in rich seasonal colors such as chocolate, rust and gold. The autumn will gladly let you inspire from its elements.

Try for the appetizer a Swedish buffet with traditional specialties of the season. Varied cookies with savory or sweet, with cheddar, garlic and Brie or filled with Cheddar cheese.  Next to them a few sausages, ham or roast will look amazingly yummy. If you are out of autumn wedding reception ideas, rebuild a Halloween day with pumpkins in various dishes, sweet potatoes and marshmallows in martini glasses.

Instead of a traditional cake, serve seasonal desserts: quince jam, sweet potato pie and pumpkin pie. Do not opt for some exotic or complicated foods while nature offers you everything you may need for a festive wedding menu.


If you want to spoil your guests with something really special, then serve S’mores cookies and hot apple cider, flavored with a little brandy or bourbon. They will definitely appreciate your effort.
