Ok, so it is fully fall around the DC area! We brave the heat two weeks ago, and then the rain last week, but I think we are finally in the clear to share a little fall wedding inspiration! So, if you are getting married this fall and little a little last minute inspiration, or planning your wedding for this time next year, you’ll love this round up of some of our favorite wedding ideas using pumpkins. Pumpkins are easy to find, relatively affordable and they last forever (think planning ahead!). Pumpkins and everything you can do with pumpkins are a great way to celebrate what I think we can all agree is the best season in the Washington DC area!

And last but not least, I love, love, love (can you tell I love it?!) pumpkin bread! You could bake up some quick pumpkin bread as wedding favors! This would be an ideal DIY wedding favor because you can start early, bake a few at time and stock pile them in your freezer. Wrap them up in some wax paper inside of kraft paper, tie with bakers twine and you are done! Try these recipes from Martha Stewart:
