An Autumn Themed Wedding
Now that you are engaged your next big decision is when to have your wedding!
Summer is a popular time for weddings and it is easy to understand why. However, growing numbers of savvy engaged couples are learning about the pleasures of an Autumn wedding.
The pleasures of an autumn wedding
It is not simply that wedding venues are less busy during the autumn months, which means that choice is greater, it is that autumn is a beautiful time of the year.
Just think of England’s rich colourful autumn landscapes, gently falling leaves and those glowing autumnal afternoons.
Reflect the season with an autumn themed wedding
If you are are planning an autumn wedding you will want your big day to reflect the hues and tones of this wonderful season.
You have so many rich, vivid colours to inspire you. Just think of yourself as an artist with an immense pallet of glorious greens, glowing oranges, rich reds and golden browns to choose from.
For your special day you will want to tie the knot with an absolutely amazing autumn theme. So, here are a few tips to help you create that perfect day.
Colours – Design your event with the seasons colours in mind. Warming browns, tans, greens, yellows, reds and oranges evoke this season like nothing else. Use your artistry to create the quintessentially autumnal theme using these rich colour options;
Wedding Stationery – get your guests in the mood for an autumn themed wedding by sending them invitations inspired by autumn. Any good stationer should be able to provide you with the precise combination of images of autumnal trees and lustrous leaves to create the most memorable wedding stationery;
Flowers – you must, of course, match your choice of flowers to the season. Roses, sunflowers and hydrangea are wonderful in reds, oranges and golds. For that extra touch add pine cones and fallen autumn leaves to complement that perfect theme;
Dress for the season – with the temperature dropping your first thoughts will be about what to wear. An autumn theme need not prevent you from wearing your favourite wedding dress. However, if you are venturing outside on the day, as it is so much cooler outside you may wish to consider choosing accessories for yourself and your bridesmaids that provide a little bit more protection from the cool autumn air. So why not finish the ensemble off with warm shrugs in your choice of autumnal colours.
However, it is those special details that can turn a great wedding into a memorable one. So, why not use autumn leaves instead of confetti, thrill your guests with a fireworks display or even have an autumn themed wedding cake.
