Etsy is a wedding planning haven where a bride’s detailed dreams come true, and that makes for some drop dead gorgeous affairs for us to gawk over. Some of our favorite fêtes are of the fall variety, so we thought we’d whip up a few buying guides based on some drool-worthy autumn affairs.

First we’ll show a little snap shot of the wedding, and then unveil the board of curated Etsy goodness. Let’s get started with this gorgeous Santa Ynez soiree by Jose Villa.

Hard not to love that goodness, and with a little help from our crafty Etsy friends it can all be yours.

Beth Helmstetter is a styling goddess, and this gorgeous party does elegant rustic so well that the term “elegant rustic” was probably coined for this wedding. But you don’t have to take my word for it: here’s a little snippet from the gorgeous affair.

And now, here are some ideas on how you can make it your very own.

And finally, this autumn photo shoot is just my dream fall setting — warm tones, a fabulous menu and wine aplenty. We just had to take the opportunity to make this inspiration a reality…

You just need a few beautiful things to bring it to life.
