For the Love of Pumpkin

October is here, and it is the season of pumpkin! It”s easy to incorporate pumpkins into your wedding, and they are as affordable as they are stylish. Whether you want a country style fall wedding or an elegant autumn affair, there are many ways to add the classic look – and taste – of pumpkins into your special day.


Carve your names or initials into the pumpkin, then place a candle or light inside. Nestle them atop a bed of fall leaves, stems, or flowers, or arrange mini gourds and some fall foliage around them.
