When it comes to fall wedding invitations, there are so many different styles you can choose from. This season, which happens to be the most popular time of the year for weddings, is best known for rustic everything, but if that's not quite your aesthetic, you've got plenty of other options for your wedding stationery. We scouted some of our favorite online wedding invitation retailers to find these unique designs, which range from rustic and country chic to classic, boho, minimalist, vintage, and more.

Below, read more about fall wedding invitations and see our picks that you can buy right now. 

Fall wedding invitation colors

Traditional fall wedding colors include warm palettes and hues, such as orange, yellow, red, burgundy, rose gold, bronze, and brown. All of these colors are also popular for fall wedding invitations, but don't be hesitant to go beyond the norm. For minimalist and classic weddings, we love a simple black and white color palette (you can never go wrong with the basics). Jewel tones are great for creating a dramatic, glamorous look. You can also use moody colors for a mysterious, spooky season vibe, or embrace muted pastels, such as sage green, dusty blue, mauve, and heather purple. Metallic accents, such as copper, silver, and yellow gold, will add a seasonal shimmer to your wedding invites. 

Fall wedding invitation designs

If you guessed leaves, pumpkins, sunflowers, trees, and burlap to be some of the most popular fall wedding ideas, you would be correct. These seasonal, rustic-inspired details are ideal for invitations if you're getting married at a barn or other casual setting. But if you want to convey a fall aesthetic in a more subtle way, floral prints, watercolor washes, and greenery motifs are just a few ideas. Focus on using an autumnal color palette when going with a less obvious fall design. 

When should you send fall wedding invitations? 

In general, your wedding invitations should be mailed between six and eight weeks before your wedding. Mail them out sooner if your wedding date falls on or near a holiday, such as Labor Day, Rosh Hashanah, Halloween, or Thanksgiving—your guests will need extra time to plan and make accommodations as necessary.
