I adore an autumn wedding. I love that the weather is being to turn and so the wedding party and guests hopefully won’t find themselves in super heat suited and booted. Equally generally September and October tend to give us wonderful sunny days in the UK making for the perfect wedding day. Cool, crisp and bright.
When it comes to autumn weddings you are spoilt for choice in terms of flowers. There is a wealth of greenery and foliage some of which will be beginning to turn to red or drying out brown which adds the most wonderful depth. Beautiful seasonal flowers including dahlia, roses, amaranths and grasses will be out in force in rich colours of golds, reds, oranges and nudes. All of these flowers have wonderful texture, shapes and interests and mixing them together looks absolutely dreamy making for the most detailed and textured floral arrangements.
I am all for colour when planning an autumn wedding. So as to keep things seasonal it is wonderful to look out to what is happening in nature. Nudes, blueses and browns make a wonderful colour scheme if you are wanting something more neutral. Using a mix of reds, oranges and browns also looks absolutely beautiful and so colourful. Equally sticking with greenery and adding in grasses also works wonderfully and all options add beautiful warmth and depth.
When it comes to decorating, dressed mantels add warmth, depth and interest. Adding candles is a wonderful nod to the season and again add some real warmth and depth. Interesting table centres including table urns on round tables or runners on longer tables look beautiful as do large bouquets and statement arrangements to welcome guests and mark out different sections of the room.
Keep things seasonal and trying to go as large as you can with your flowers will make for dreamy arrangements and a beautiful wedding day. My advice is to always try to incorporate a statement arrangement and be more reserved for table arrangements, particularly if your ceremony and reception are in the same location.
Enjoy planning your autumn wedding!
