Autumn wedding ideas; rich, warm palettes of magnificent colour, ethereal wedding decorations and comfort food….

The wedding dress

Autumn gives brides the change to drape themselves in wedding dresses made from luxurious heavier materials such as satin and lace. Don’t be afraid to brave a wedding dress with striking dense embellishment or beading or a bridal gown in a darker seasonal colour.

The wedding flowers

Burnt oranges, intoxicating reds and lots of natural greenery, Autumn wedding flowers are usually the richest in colour. If fresh flowers aren’t you thing then Autumn blooms are the most realistic paper or silk bouquets. Add a juanty feather to step up that style notch!

The wedding cake

In keeping with the Autumn wedding theme, emulate a rustic ambiance by providing not one but a whole table of home made cakes. If your guests are keen bakers, why not stage a Great Wedding Cake Off? If you can’t decided on just one cake, you may as well go with them all!

The wedding décor

Crisp and colourful autumn leaves strewn across your reception venue will bring a true sense of the season to your celebration. Get crafty and spray paint the leaves – metallics are so in right now! Or, create centre pieces from natural foilage such as berries, pine cones and wild flowers.
