When planning an autumn wedding it’s safe to say there’s quite a lot of things to think about from venue to décor to the extra details. Autumn is all about colour – the warm reds, oranges and yellows of the changing leaves, the smell of the cool crisp air mixed with fireworks and a heady smoke from the surrounding chimneys all make for a beautiful warm wedding theme.
Top Tip: Add a touch of metallic bronze or gold, and you have yourself one chic autumn scheme!
When prepping your autumn wedding, don't forget about the groom. a sure way to up the style stakes is to incorporate some deep reds for the groom either a dickey bow or umbrella for amazing photos!
This would require some serious DIY time, but LEAF CONFETTI! Amazing!! Perfect for all you Autumn Brides (Source: Pinterest) or even for an autumnal party. I might just try it. Sprinkle it around the cake table or give to the flower girl to sprinkle down the altar or throw it in the air for the ultimate photo op!Try using different punches for a fun effect! I'm thinking hearts, stars, and flower punches but if you can't find that (local craft stores will have them) a regular old hole punch will do. Eco-friendly, free, and confetti! Whats not to love!
Finishing touches - opting for deeper coloured robes, adding a flash of colour with umbrellas or adding rose gold accessories will all enhance the autumn colours. Make use of all that beautiful greenery and foiliage around, it will certainly help your wedding budget stretch and can create a totally dramatic effect!Adding a flash of colour to your bridal part to enhance the autumn leaves
Top Tip: When considering planning your day remember there will be less light available for pictures so if you have a choice go for an earlier ceremony time to allow time for photos. Then take advantage of the dark by having sparklers (check with your venue) a candlelit supper or even glow sticks to get the party started. When it comes to autumn weddings be mindful when you pick a venue that will be cosy in the cooler temperatures. If you’re set on an outdoor ceremeny (all the foilage remember!) perhaps arranging for chimineas or fire pits so that your guests can enjoy the autumn evenings whilst still being warm and cosy or serve hot drinks, irish coffees or hot whisky would go down a treat with your guests. Ask your venue to serve canapes with in season produce like pumpkin tarts or candied apples if your getting married close to Halloween!
Beautiful autumnal wedding flowers are easy to create! Choose classic blooms like roses and dahlias in reds, oranges and yellows, I love the idea of adding woodland touches like acorns and oak leaves. We also love seeing fruit and berries in autumn wedding bouquets – try adding apples or plums into your bouquet for a rustic twist. Work in lots of greenery for added pizzazz and bonus points for being cheaper than flowers and stretching that budget a little bit further.Oh now if you didn’t love Autumn before, you must do now! It really is the most perfectly romantic time of the year to be wed.
