Preparing for Your Autumn Wedding
The warm jeweled toned colors of autumn can provide a spectacular backdrop for your wedding, with the leaves on the trees bursting with color and the orange and red hues from an autumn sunset will make for some stunning photographs. Be sure to look up the time for sunset and plan your wedding carefully around that so that you make the most of the day!
Choose a theme that matches the time of year, go for a woodland rustic country style with teal, duck egg blue and natural browns and coppers.
Decide on a venue where you can capture the essence of the season and its natural beauty, some great ideas for an autumn wedding are a vineyard, farm or botanical garden.
The weather will be turning cooler so choose a fur wrap, stole or shawl to cover your shoulders so that you don’t get cold, or you can go for longer sleeves on your dress.
Choose your bridesmaid dresses by selecting from colors that you naturally see occurring in the fall season – go for burgundy, apricot, mustard yellow, dark greens and warm browns, they will really help to reflect the beauty of Autumn.
Fall is just coming out of summer so it’s an in-between season where you can go either way with the color of the guy’s suits and ties. You may opt for a brown, tan or grey suit for them, which will blend perfectly with every fall wedding color palette and look phenomenal in pictures. The Allure for Men steel grey is a perfect choice.
There are also some stunning flowers that you can match into your theme, it would be better to consider flowers that are in season as these are likely to be less expensive – such as holly, amaryllis, daphne, iris, winter jasmine and cotoneaster. You can also include dark green leaves, or red berries to finish off your bouquets.
Design a leaf logo or pattern that you can include in your invitations, place name cards, and wedding favors – this is a really nice way to add a touch of the season’s theme into your stationery and decorations.
