Colored leaves make for gorgeous photo props! Try using them with your engagement ring like this couple did, as a backdrop, or get a little dirty and jump in a pile. You’ve got instant beauty and fun!

Floral pieces are very popular in the bridal world right now–why not do a fun twist and use leaves? Whether real or fake, natural or metallic, a clip or a crown, it adds an extra touch of fall style.

Another stylish twist? Instead of just using flowers as your soon to be husband’s boutonniere, try adding a colored leaf as an accent or try using leaves on their own. It’s still super classy, but unique!

Try making leaves more prominent in your bouquet. It doesn’t all have to be leaves (although it can be if you want!) but adding just a little extra gives more of a fall vibe.

Who knew leaves could look so pretty on a cake? We like these gold painted leaves and the simplicity of the decor. We bet reds, oranges, and yellow leaves would look really pretty too!

Another gorgeous color to consider painting leaves is copper. With just a little love, an ordinary leaf can become a minimal yet beautiful part of your table setting.
