Getting married in Autumn? Autumn Wedding Stationery

“As Autumn leaves turn their brilliant hue, two hearts will join to say I Do”

Autumn is the most romantic season to get married. With the nights starting to draw in and with the crisp air, gather your closest family and friends for a rustic cosy wedding celebration.

You will have an array of flowers to choose for your floral arrangements for your wedding day. Your inspiration can be taken from the rich and elegant reds, oranges and golds of the autumn leaves to create a warm and welcoming ambience for your Ceremony and Wedding Day. Once you have your chosen colours you can have them incorporated into your autumn wedding stationery. Maybe have the autumn wedding theme and style flowing through your wedding celebrations from your wedding invitation to the reception.

Immerse your celebrations in soft candlelight to create a warm, intimate atmosphere. Autumn weddings are best complimented to rustic, barn style venues. Think of beams, low ceilings and open fireplaces to really make the most of the season. Autumn is also a cosy time of year to use fairy lights to decorate your chosen wedding venue, both inside and outside. Fairy lights could be wrapped around the beams in your ceremony room and line the aisle with candles in large lanterns or hurricane lamps. As the nights are drawing to a close and it will get dark earlier, you could decorate any outside spaces at your venue with fairy lights and/or candles to make the best possible use of the area.

I am sure you will agree, that the best thing about an autumn wedding is the food and drink! Break with tradition and serve warm, spiced mulled wine or hot whiskey’s during your drinks reception instead of prosecco and wine. And for evening meal, who wouldn’t look forward to a smooth, full-bodied glass of red wine and a hearty portion of slow braised beef followed by apple and blackberry crumble? Autumn truly is the perfect time of year to serve all of the delicious, crowd-pleasing dishes that your guests, young and old, will love.

An autumn wedding also takes the pressure off the weather being such an important part of your day. You won’t be disappointed if the sunshine doesn’t appear but on the other hand, if you do get lucky with some hazy autumnal sunshine, it will be an colorful bonus! You can still get some fabulous weather in September and October and autumn weddings tend to be more soundly priced with more dates available than in July and August. By autumn the frantic summer of weddings will have come to an end and everyone will be more relaxed to enjoy your day. It will give your family and friends something to look forward to before the long, hard winter months take hold.
