Spectacular Fall Wedding Cake Ideas

With the autumn season quickly approaching, we thought we’d put together some fall wedding cake ideas to get us inspired for the cooler weather and seasonal treats! From bright oranges to dark purples, many colors are fitting for the fall season and we think they would all look perfect at a wedding this time of the year. We have chosen some cakes that feature pumpkin details, boasting the fall season, but we’ve also chosen some simpler cakes that simply feature colors that match the tone of fall. Check these fall wedding cake ideas out below and get excited for your upcoming wedding day!


The symbolic color of the season, orange is one of the shades that we have chosen to feature in these fall wedding cakes. Both bright oranges and burnt or darker oranges are great colors to match the season. White and gold are beautiful colors that compliment orange perfectly in the fall.

Rose Gold

Rose gold is another color that we think is absolutely perfect for the fall season. The trendy color is not only a hot shade for this year, but it also fits the warm and rustic tone for the autumn season.

Dark Purple and Violet

If you’re looking for a fall wedding cake that doesn’t feature bright oranges then a purple wedding cake may be perfect for you. The darker tone is perfect for the changing season and also is an elegant choice for the chic bride.

Pumpkin Details

If you really want to embody all things autumn, then a wedding cake with pumpkin details is fun, festive and totally fall. The pumpkin details can be large or small, and can be a big or little part of your cake. Either way, it’s a great way to really bring the fall season into your wedding.
