Apple-Inspired Wedding Ideas

Nothing says fall quite like a trip to the apple orchard. To celebrate the season, we've pulled together some of our favorite ways to include apples in your wedding.

Create a bouquet out of red apples and fresh greenery, or add a few crab apples to a classic floral bouquet.

Ceremony Décor
Place a bin filled with apples at the entrance to your ceremony or line the aisles with bushels. Bonus: Your guests can enjoy a pre-ceremony snack while they wait for your grand entrance.

Cocktail Hour
During your cocktail hour, serve up apple-infused drinks, like appletinins. Create candles out of apples by carving out the tops and securing tealights inside. Or use apples beneath a serving tray.
