Autumn is becoming an increasingly popular time for couples to tie the knot. It’s not too warm and not too cool, and the landscape looks just incredible with those crisp and warm coloured leaves. Autumn weddings can also be budget friendly, as many venues class this time of the year as off-peak, offering reduced rates. What’s more, an autumn-inspired wedding theme can look pretty special too, as you’ll find out in today’s blog…
Say goodbye to the bold bright colours of summer and all the soft, hazy palettes and welcome a warm and rich colour scheme. Autumn brides should opt for warmer shades such as oranges, browns, reds and plums to reflect the changing season
Marsala, a deep brownish red colour, was crowned Pantone Colour of the Year for 2015 and is ideal for any bride who’s keen to stay on-trend. For a sophisticated art-deco style edge, pair with metallic colours such as gold, rose gold and copper. And if it’s a more laid back boho or vintage vibe you’re after, team the deep, rich colour with ivory and blush – which together evoke the perfect modern romance.
Who doesn’t love the hearty, rich and flavoursome foods of autumn? The cool and crisp wedding season brings along a feast of colour to the wedding table and a menu that will get all your guests’ mouths watering! Opt for seasonal ingredients that complement your colour scheme – such as butternut squash and pumpkin. Other root vegetables, such as celeriac and parsnip work well too. For dessert try something comforting like luxury bread and butter pudding, with hot custard or cream, or a fruit pie.
The inspiration for your décor will draw on slightly more rustic themes and vintage themes – for which you can find plenty of inspiration on our blog. The woodland wedding is also popular, so don’t forget to incorporate lots of wood, natural materials and cute animal features too.
Other touches that work well for an autumn-inspired wedding include blankets, hessian décor, autumn leaves and log fires – all guaranteed to make guests feel cosy and warm. A sparkler sendoff is also a great way to mark the end of your big-day celebrations too.
You’ll also want to choose the right car for your big-day celebrations. While the first few weeks of autumn may allow you to opt for one of our convertible wedding cars, come late September, you’ll want one of our cosy vintage wedding cars.
Our Burgundy Beauford Convertible is the perfect choice for a bride picking a Marsala colour scheme. It also complements many of the popular autumn colour palettes while bringing an elegant, vintage vibe to your special day.
Another great choice is the Regent Convertible Wedding Car. Its ivory exterior means it will suit just about any colour scheme while adding a charming vintage touch.
For something that’s luxuriously cosy and stylish, opt for the 1960s Van Dam Plas Princess Wedding Car. Complete with navy carpets and fur rugs, it’s the ultimate choice for those chilly autumn days.
