Autumn is a very popular season to plan your wedding and we can see why. The romantic colours of reds and oranges combined with early nights makes for the perfect setting for your wedding. We’ve picked our favourite autumn themed real weddings to show you how to style your autumn wedding from start to finish.
You don’t want to freeze on your wedding day so remember to stay warm by accessorising your dress with a beautiful cape, shrug, bolero or pashmina. Find the perfect accessory to match your theme, for a vintage themed wedding opt for a faux fur cape or shrug, for those of your going for a more traditional, classic look, lace is the best option.
Don’t forget your maids! Boleros and pashminas come in a variety of beautiful colours; take this opportunity to add an accent coloured accessory, whether bold or subtle that enhances your colour scheme and instantly transforms your bridesmaids’ look from day to night.
Incorporating candles in to your autumn wedding decor for your reception is a must for any wedding in autumn. The warm amber glow from the candles is the secret to creating the perfect autumn ambiance. In the evening, transform the room by adding purple up-lighting, the combination of amber and purple is magical.
Use rich, deep hues of pink and purples in your floral arrangements, alternating between flowers, berries and even twigs. The darker shades and rustic texture of the foliage compliments the season beautifully.
Substitute the sweet table with pies and tarts. During the darker and colder periods of autumn your guests will truly appreciate the idea of warm comfort food. Use seasonal vegetables and fruits for a genuine autumn feeling.
