While most brides rush to book a venue during the summer months, there are a lot of great things about having your big day during autumn. Not only are the autumn months cheaper when it comes to venues but the range of suppliers available may also be greater due to less demand. Let’s not forget there are some awesome holidays to piggyback on!
While having your wedding in the autumn won’t affect what you choose in regards to rings, hair and make up or even your dress, it is fun to tie the season in somehow. If you’re debating on planning an autumnal wedding, then here’s some inspiration to get you started:
Autumn is a beautiful time outside, so be sure to pick up some of the crisp leaves and use these within your décor. We love the idea of glittery autumn leaves examples can be found on Pinterest. They can be hung around the venue or used to decorate the tables. Using pinecones, like in the photo above, is a brilliant idea for name cards and doesn’t have to cost anything. Acorns and pumpkins are also great natural pieces to pick up that cost very little or nothing and tie in the season easily.
Run with the season’s color theme
Embrace those autumnal colors of red, gold, orange and yellow and use these as a theme within the wedding. You can incorporate these in your wedding flowers, the table decorations and even the accessories for the male members of the wedding party.
Have a sparkler send off
Why not capture the warmth of the autumn season by giving out sparklers to your guests and having a sparkler send off outside when you leave the venue. This will make for some great pictures and really embrace the spirit of the season.
