7 Pretty Ways to Use Pumpkins for Your Fall Wedding

Although I love all things fall, pumpkins are my perennial favorite. From the stereotypical pumpkin spice latte, to carving pumpkins with spooky faces, to pumpkin-infused Pinterest recipes - I love it all! Maybe it's the sweet organic look of a few squash nestled together, or maybe it's the scent that brings with it nostalgia for every back-to-school season I've ever endured, but there's something about pumpkins that gets me excited every time autumn rolls around. I couldn't resist rounding up a few of my favorite wedding pumpkins to share - scroll through and take a look! From squash mounted on rustic hay bales to glam gilded gourds that double as serving bowls, there's something for every bride (Cinderella or not).
