Having a fall wedding is a marvelous idea for a lot of reasons. The potential to save by going off-season is just one of the reasons – the romantic touches of the season and the generous vibes in the air are another.

If you have your heart set on a fall wedding, you definitely love its most famous elements – such as the colors of the leaves, the cozy atmosphere, and, of course, pumpkins.

What are some delicious Southern foods infused with pumpkin that you could include in a New Orleans wedding?

We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Pumpkin and acorn squash soup. What could be more comforting than a bowl of delicious, warm soup on a chilly fall evening? Your guests will definitely appreciate this for a variety of reasons: it will warm them up, it will give them energy for dancing, it will add spice and color to the menu, and it will perfectly complement the entire fall wedding theme.
  • Pumpkin seeds. Want to provide guests with a healthy and delicious snack to munch on? While popcorn may be a very popular choice, roasted pumpkin seeds can be equally great – you can even buy them in bulk and then invite guests to grab a cone of them to munch on while catching up with long distance relatives.
  • Pear and pumpkin tart. Nothing beats a Southern tart – and especially not during the fall, when tart fillings are so abundant. If you want to surprise your guests with something that will taste quintessentially Southern, yet unique at the same time, provide them with a pumpkin and pear tart.
  • Pumpkin roll. If you are looking for a dessert every single guest will love, this is it. There are so many varieties that it is impossible not to find one that’s actually suitable for you (and your guests): chocolate chip, cinnamon, cream cheese, and so on. It’s a delicious sweet treat bound to be appreciated by everyone – so you really can’t go wrong with it.
