10 Autumnal Wedding Ideas
Your cake is your chance to showcase some beautiful designs
Unique cake designs are rapidly becoming as important as the decor itself!
Why not try a wooden cake stand to display your cake, or even try to incorporate leaves and pine cones for a real warm and autumnal feel?
You could even experiment with some flavours that are famously linked with the autumn season, such as spiced pumpkin and salted caramel!
2. Chair sashes
Decorating your chairs to match your theme will complete the marquee and add another layer of depth and interest to your autumn wedding!
Have you considered hessian sashes?
These tied in a beautiful bow will compliment any autumn wedding and will add a simple touch of class with that rustic feel too!
This is a great way to finish off your autumn wedding without having to go over the top with any decorations!
3. Centre pieces
Wooden logs work perfectly as centre pieces to set off your autumn theme at your wedding breakfast. Used alongside your favourite autumnal decorations and your cosy theme will be complete!
Some perfect autumn pieces might include a garland with those famous autumnal colours, maybe a pumpkin to get everyone in the mood, or even some candles and lanterns to complete the ambience!
Flowers are a must have on your wedding day which means getting the colour palette right for your bouquet is essential, so let’s have a look at which flowers best encapsulate the autumnal theme…
Deep purples, reds, burnt oranges, browns and pine greens are some great colours to look out for when piecing together your bouquet for an autumnal wedding.
Alternatively, vibrant oranges, pinks and yellows might seem to resemble pumpkins and all things autumnal, all of which will create your dream autumn wedding
5. Ceremony Location
Choosing the right location to tie the knot is a key decision when trying to create a wedding that is immersed in a particular theme…so choose wisely!
For an autumnal wedding, perhaps consider an outdoor woodland ceremony, complemented with fairly lights and lanterns to bring your autumnal fairy tale to life!
If you’re having an indoor ceremony then maybe think about using lots of your autumnal flowers and decorative pieces to line the aisle.
6. Decorations/ table plan
Another piece of inspiration for your autumnal wedding is a smaller detail that is simple yet so effective!
Perhaps decorate your table plan in autumnal coloured decorative items such as fake leaves, pine branches, and fairy lights!
You could even find rustic individual pieces of decoration from home stores and craft stores to add a pop of autumn in a space that could otherwise look plain!
So now that you’ve decided to have your wedding in the gorgeous season of autumn, why not use the wintery nights to your advantage and get some breath-taking sparklers shots!
Take the opportunity to gather all of your guests together and they can all help you create these fantastic photos with those sparklers lighting up the nights sky!
The autumn season is the perfect excuse to serve up your favourite soup, roast dinners, and indulge in your best-loved winter desserts, so why not go all out!
Perhaps a family member makes a delightful homemade soup that you wish to replicate on your special day, or your favourite autumn flavour is pumpkin pie! You may have fond memories of cosy Sundays eating roast dinners and apple crumble…
At manor Hill House we love our outdoor pizza oven, which works perfectly in the autumn season to warm up your guests when the chill sets in during the evening.
So whatever tickles your taste-buds, take the opportunity to eat it all at your autumn wedding!
9. Bridesmaids Dresses
Choosing your bridesmaids dresses may seem like a difficult decision to make, I mean…trying to please the girls is no small feat!
However, I have a small tip for when choosing those bridesmaids dresses which may make that task a big easier!
If you want the perfect autumn wedding you have always dreamed of, try to choose bridesmaids dresses in the colour that you chose for your flowers in your bouquet!
Maybe go for a deep maroon, burgundy, or forest green to really set off the autumnal tone. Or even consider having two colours, one of which could be a strong bold colour from your autumn bouquet and compliment it with a softer colour
10. Blanket Box
Our final bit of inspiration for you is something that will make every guest feel welcome and warm at your autumn wedding, and is a perfect statement piece for any outdoor seating area.
Giving your guests some cosy blankets to snuggle under whilst they sit amongst family and friends is the perfect finishing touch to your wedding for the autumn season!
Placed in a basket with a handwritten sign inviting guests to get cosy under the stars this simplistic idea will complete the autumnal wedding you always dreamed of!
