6. Nearly Natural Dahlia & Mum With Vase Arrangement
The obvious choice when it comes to decorating a wedding is using flowers. The cost of real flowers adds up quickly, and can oftentimes cost thousands of dollars. We wrote an entire post on why using artificial flowers is the way to go. Check it out here. This arrangement has the perfect combination of colors for a fall vibe. Use a simple burlap table runner and some pillar candles to complete the look.
7. Autumn Leaf Wedding Unity Candles

8. Flameless Candles With Birch Effect
Due to the fire hazard associated with real candles (especially in large quantities), many venues have rules and regulations that limit brides and grooms to the use of flameless candles for their wedding. These have a lovely birch effect on the exterior, with a realistic flame that results in a festive and romantic glow. The varying heights are four inches, five inches, and six inches respectively and each candle delivers 150 hours of continuous light. Shop flameless candle sets without the birch effect here.
Price: $21.99 (84 percent off MSRP)
