Wednesday Wedding Inspiration – An Autumn Wedding
So autumn has fully set in to motion, dark mornings, icy cold blasts of wind, leaves falling and of course, rain, rain and more rain. Our Bespoke Brides embrace autumn in the Forest of Dean, so we thought we would show you what a great season it is to have a wedding.
With autumn being such a risk in terms of weather (here in England anyway), why would we want to inspire you? Well, to put it simply, you can make an autumn wedding so spectacular through using natural products, which in turn saves money. It’s a win, win situation. Plus it will look fantastic and with the majority of weddings happening in spring and summer, your wedding will stand apart from the rest.
In autumn you are spoilt for choice on your colour scheme! With the leaves falling and changing all manner of colours it really is take your pick.
There will be an abundance of leaves at this time so why not use them as centre stage at your wedding? On the cake, as confetti, in your bouquet, on the invites, the list is endless. The great thing about leaves is that you can make a lot of DIY decorations for free and as you can see they look stunning. Now if that isn’t an incentive for a theme…then we’ll eat our hats!
Why not give pumpkins their on section? Well, yes they are of course connected with Halloween but it seems that more and more couples are using pumpkins in a very different way in their themes. Many choose to paint their pumpkins the colour of their them, using them as wonderful centre pieces.
Throughout all these themes and colours, remember to use the environment to your advantage, create your own decorations, boutonnieres, bouquets, confetti, centrepieces, Hay bales can even be used as seating for your guests. Take inspiration for the autumn food and drink – apples, pumpkins, cider etc. Make it your own unique wedding day.
