Autumn wedding dress ideas

In this post, we will explore the charm of autumn wedding dresses. Check out our advice on how to choose an autumn wedding dress all of your very own.

Dress colours

Experiment with alternative shades

Bronze, gold, rust red, amber are all beautiful colours to experiment with during Autumn. If you are looking for an alternative colour (other than ivory or white), consider one of these shades. They offer a perfect complement to the crisp scenery of autumn.

Add colour to your accents

If you’re opting for a more traditional hue, you can bring in elements of these shades in your dress accents and embroidery. A white dress can be jazzed up with some crystal beading, sequins or diamante pieces in bronze, gold, amber or hazel.

Keep warm, stay stylish

Autumn usually heralds cooler weather. Keep this in mind when shopping for an autumn wedding dress. Long sleeves are a useful compromise, especially when using lace, velvet or silk. Consider longer dresses too, since these are perfect for the colder weather.

Wedding day jumpsuit

In addition, a wedding day jumpsuit is a chic alternative to the classic wedding dress, and will keep you warm throughout your wedding day celebrations. There are many beautifully-tailored styles available for the stylistically confident bride.

Accessorise accessorise accessorise

Autumn weddings offer a number of charming accessory options. Floral crowns styled with autumn foliage or bold red berries are a great choice for an autumn bride looking for some bohemian flair. In contrast, you may like to add a single bloom to your hair, choosing a seasonal flower option.

An autumn wedding is also an opportunity to experiment with bronze and gold jewellery and hair pieces. Vintage pieces of jewellery means a laid back appeal to your wedding day look.

You can also draw inspiration from the warm hues of the season by opting for burnt purples, bronzed oranges and gold for your shoes, hairpieces and outerwear.

Picking your bouquet

Autumn brings with it a unique colour palette and seasonal blooms. Dahlia, sea holly and celosia in deep purples, rustic reds and oranges are all seasonal favourites for an autumn wedding. However, you needn’t stick to a script when it comes to styling an autumn wedding bouquet, as Bridal Musings describes:

“Now, I know from previous experience, not every bride is a fan of the rich plum colours. Which is why I thought, why not focus on a non-traditional fall bouquet? This design is one I created for the first day of Autumn and as you can see, it’s not a conventional autumnal bouquet. With very subtle tones and a pastel colour palette, you can still match your flowers to your scheme and style. I’m a great believer of making the flowers work for you and not just settling on what is the norm.”
