Today we are talking all about rustic-themed fall wedding cakes!
A rustic aesthetic will always work whether you are looking for ideas for small fall wedding cakes or larger ones.
Fall is my favourite time of year because of the wedding season!
The hot and humid summer months are just starting to slow down, and it’s finally starting to cool down, but it’s not too cold yet, meaning you can still enjoy the outdoors because you are not all sweaty due to humidity.
Fall also means sweater season, pumpkin lattes and fall proposal time.
Proposing during fall is just romantic.
Think about the lovely backdrop of orange and brown leaves, perfect for fall wedding photos.
Can you tell that I just love the fall season?
The beautiful fall leaves are starting to change or have completely changed, people are wearing cute sweaters, and some are beginning to work on their fall bucket list.

What is a rustic cake?
Today will be sharing fall rustic wedding cake ideas perfect for displaying at your wedding reception.
But what is a rustic wedding cake?
When I think rustic, country, farmhouse, western and industrial come to mind.
Rugged, organic, natural, textured and earth tone is what I picture when I think of a rustic wedding cake.
Rustic wedding cakes have that natural texture with a touch of muted colours.
If this seems like your style, you need to get yourself a rustic wedding cake for your fall wedding.
These simple rustic wedding cakes are perfect for those who want a fall, country-themed, barn, vintage or rustic-styled wedding.
And whether you choose to have a cute small rustic wedding cake or something extravagant, these cakes will look beautiful on your dessert table on your wedding day.
You are here today because:
You are looking for fall natural wedding cakes
You need simple rustic-themed wedding cakes
You can decide on an elegant rustic cake design
I am glad you are here.
And due to the popularity of fall weddings, I wanted to share a few rustic wedding cake ideas you can have on your big day that are both simple and elegantly decorated.
The naked wedding cakes and the rustic cake trends are not going anywhere soon.
If you spend your time on Pinterest looking for wedding inspiration, I am sure you have seen quite a few rustic wedding cake themes.
I have seen one-tier wedding cake ideas, rustic cakes with cute wedding cake toppers and even a gorgeous rustic wedding cake with flowers.
My favourite is the small wedding cakes with cute cascading flowers.
If you have an intimate small wedding, it will look great on a rustic cake stand.
The possibilities of what you can have for your rustic fall wedding cake are plenty.
It’s all about the little details.
Before you visit your cake artist to learn about looking at rustic wedding cakes, I suggest having a wedding cake budget in mind, as they can run up a few dollars if you are not careful.
Your rustic cake ideas will be useless if you can’t afford them.
The cost of natural cakes or rustic naked cakes for your wedding will depend on:
- The number of guests
- Your cake design
- Cake supplies and setup elements
A quick wedding budget checklist will help you stay on budget.
I also genuinely recommend this Ultimate Wedding Budget bundle.
It’s designed to meet all your wedding planning needs and ensure you cover all your wedding expenses, leaving little to no surprises.

Best Wedding Fall Cake Flavours
Remember that your cake can be flavoured for fall, but in reality, you can have any flavour you want, including the colours inside your cake.

I love anything with a hint of cinnamon, nutmeg and clove, especially in wedding cakes.
If you are having a fall wedding, spice-style cakes are perfect.
But here are a few flavours to consider for your fall rustic wedding cake:
