When someone says fall what is the first thing you think of? Cooler weather, Halloween, or pumpkin spice lattes? Here at The Lesner Inn when we think fall we think about some of our favorite seasonal wedding trends! Autumn is filled with falling leaves, pumpkin flavored everything, cozying up by the fire and the list goes on and on.  Having your wedding in the fall can be so beautiful and have such a cozy feel if you incorporate some simple fall inspired details. Here are just a few of our favorite weddings trends for the fall season!

  1. Fall Wedding Colors

An easy way to set a fall mood for your wedding would be with colors! One color that is a great new trend to incorporate into your table centerpieces is Bronze, which adds such a chic warm aspect to your décor.  Other romantic colors we love for this time of the year are deep plums and shades of cranberry.

  1. Pumpkin Guests Place Cards

This is such a cute idea that also adds decorations to your tables. Having each guest’s name attached to a pumpkin makes place cards so less boring. It’s easiest if you use small fake pumpkins then they will last forever for your guests to keep as a memory from your special day. You can also paint the pumpkins to match your décor or leave them their natural color!

  1. Specialty Cocktails

Another way to make your wedding have a cozy feel would be with a specialty hot cocktail. Offering a spiked apple cider or a hot toddy would be a perfect way to help your guests warm up on a cool fall day. Hot chocolate is also a favorite and would be good to have for any children attending your wedding or for guest’s who do not drink.

  1. Pies for Dessert

If you don’t want to go with the traditional wedding cake, having a variety of pies is a great way to make your wedding stand out and make dessert time feel like fall. Pumpkin, Apple, and Cherry are some of the classic fall pies that guests would love!


We love when temperatures start cooling down and we get to see the different ways our couple’s personalize their special day for the season. Any of the options listed above are great and simple ways to make your wedding perfect during the fall season, but the possibilities of ways to customize your fall wedding are endless! What are some of your favorite fall wedding trends?!

    We had such an amazing wedding at the Lesner this past weekend. With all of the hurdles we had to go through with COVID protocols, Alexis, Kim, and Lindsey went above and beyond to make our day feel normal- and it was PERFECT! They were so attentive to detail and helpful with things I had not thought of during the planning process. They took care of every detail and we had nothing to worry about on the day of Our wedding except showing up. I even had some last minute changes to decor that they were able to help with. The food was amazing and the view is seriously one you can’t beat. The sunset deck is Covered, so some rain is not a total game changer- but it also gives the guests a nice break from the reception hall (which is inside), which made our guests comfortable with spacing out during these times. Luckily our weather was perfect and the photos are literally amazing- there is no better view in Virginia Beach. I would highly recommend the Lesner for a wedding !!

    I could NOT be happier with the service from Lesner Inn. Our coordinator Liz was SO helpful each time we met with her and had questions. The ceremony and receptions spaces were absolutely beautiful. If I had to do it all over again I wouldn’t change a thing and I would recommend this venue to anyone!

    Girls at the Lesner Inn, Wow! I can’t believe it’s been just about a year since Jon and I came through the doors and knew that this would be the place we say “I do”. You guys are awesome and made planning a breeze even for this bride who didn’t have it all together. Thank you guys so much for everything, our day was perfect!
