Autumn is a perfect time to tie the knot. The beautiful vibrant colours, the temperate weather and the soft autumn light make it one of the most romantic times of the year to get married. Having autumn as your wedding theme will bring warmth and cosiness to your wedding day. Here are a few lovely ideas for your autumn wedding.
Bring Nature Inside
One of the great things about autumn is being able to bring nature indoors. Take advantage of the falling leaves, pinecones, berries, conkers, and pumpkins. These gorgeous elements can be used to decorate your venue, use to make table centrepieces, incorporated into your bouquet and inspire your colour palette. Warm rich tones of amber, russet, and berry colours will create a cosy and magical atmosphere.
Autumn is all about the beauty of nature, so incorporate that into your wedding stationary. Wedding Ideas say, “Start creating your autumn theme with your wedding stationery – after all, that’s what your guests will see first! It’s easy to integrate autumn into your stationery. Just choose designs with motifs like leaves, trees, apples and pinecones for a classic woodland feel. If you want something a little more subtle, choose natural materials and details like brown Kraft paper, twine and hessian for a rustic look.”
Add some autumnal elegance and beauty to your bouquet and floral arrangements. You will have a large choice of seasonal blooms to choose from. If your palette is berries, browns, and golds then you could choose pink ice protea, blue thistle, peach peony roses, dahlias, and trailing Amaranthus.
For a natural autumnal colour palette maybe, you could opt for elegant cream roses, dahlias, snowberries, zinnias, Astilbe, feathers, twigs, and autumn leaves. There are so many beautiful flowers the autumn has to offer. Speak to your florist or search Pinterest boards for more inspiration.
For a warm cosy feel, decorate your venue with candles and fairy lights. The weather can be a bit unpredictable and the evenings tend to be chilly, so make blankets available for guests to use if they start to feel the chill. You could also supply umbrellas and wellies if your wedding is outside.
Serve your guests hot chocolate with marshmallows and mulled wine to warm them up. Create a warming menu for your wedding breakfast, comfort foods will be well appreciated this time of the year.
A gorgeous autumn inspired wedding cake will look amazing. Adorn with leaves and fresh berries for a rustic look and serve on a natural wood slice cake stand. Naked wedding cakes look beautiful for autumn – creating a natural look.
Create an atmosphere of class and sophistication by taking your guest back in time to the era of legendary performers. Book a rat pack singer or group to entertain your guests.
With an autumn wedding what more fitting way to end your evening than a magnificent firework display. Supply sparklers for your guests, put galvanised steel buckets filled sand for the sparklers to go in after use.
