03/09/2019 Autumn 2019 wedding inspiration

Although summer is the most popular time of year to get married, autumn is slowly stealing the limelight. There’s just something romantic about darker nights, falling leaves and autumnal colours. If you’re in need of some autumnal inspiration, we’ve got you covered!

Colour schemes

Throw out the blush pinks, peaches and pale blues for warm shades like aubergine, red, deep green and golds. Here are some ways you can incorporate these colours into your theme.

  1. Aubergines and red – credit to Fab Mood

Adding simple floral touches to your centre pieces, cake and flowers is a great way to create a pop of colour. We adore these plum bridesmaids’ dresses, which make a statement, but still look classy.

  1. Deep greens – credit to Fab Mood

There’s something so regal about emerald greens and golds, especially if you’re having an outdoor wedding. Our House and Orangery overlooks the Warwickshire countryside, so this theme would compliment the venue perfectly. We especially love the daring green table runner!

  1. Rust orange – credit to Fab Mood

This colour combination is subtle, stylish and classic. Perfect for an October wedding, these rust and tan tones suit a wedding venue steeped in the countryside, like the House and Orangery.

Of course, there’s no rule book to say you must have autumnal colours, but pops of mustard, merlot reds and greens look timeless.

Finishing touches

Here are some small decorative touches to help you tie your theme together.

  1. Thematic food

Cinnamon biscuits, lattes and mulled cider are great ideas for a wedding approaching winter. If you’re feeling creative, make some homemade biscuits and package them up for a sweet wedding favour.

  1. Fireworks

The closer we get to November, the closer we are to fireworks season! Get the party started early with sparklers for your guests and a fireworks show. We have seen beautiful romantic pictures from our happy couples while watching firework displays.

  1. Bring the outdoors indoor

Autumn just screams for leaves, twigs and trees! Create a woodland wonderland with colourful leaves scattered around tables, mini trees with fairy lights and a cake topped with woodland themes.

  1. Fall foliage

Embrace fall foliage in your bouquet, with berry tones and leafy greens. Popular choices include dahlias, anthuriums, orchids, lilac roses and a mix of wildflowers.

  1. Halloween weddings

If you’re getting married on Halloween, incorporate mini pumpkins in to your theme. They make great centrepieces! A themed wreath, scattered leaves and spooky ‘potions’ for drinks can help keep the theme festive. If you really want to go the extra mile, add pumpkin soup to your wedding menu.

We hope this blog post has helped inspire you for an autumn wedding, and to feel confident incorporating colour!
