Vibrant Autumnal Inspiration for your Special Day

Autumn is the season of romance with its rich reds, burgundy and gold tones, burnt oranges and bright yellows. These vibrant colours make for a warm and majestic aesthetic that more and more couples are falling head over heels with, making the cosy Autumn months a perfect time to tie the knot.

Not only is this romantic aesthetic stunning, unlike both summer and winter, weather in the Autumn months isn’t too harsh, making it the perfect season for an outdoor wedding! Not forgetting the perfect autumnal lighting which will allow your photographer to capture radiant photographs to remember your wedding day.

There are so many ways to incorporate this stunning season into your day – so let us help you with a few.

Bridesmaid Dresses

So, there’s no real set rules for choosing a Bridesmaid dress for an Autumn wedding, as long as the dresses fit your aesthetic and your bridesmaids also say “YES” to the dress, then that’s all that matters. Velvet, sequins and silk are a lot more popular in the Autumn months and using these textured fabrics is a great way to celebrate the autumnal seasonal fashion trends. As for colours, jewel tones like burgundy and emerald are stunning. Burnt orange, terra cotta and dark teal tones are also set to be very popular this autumn.

Dress each of your bridesmaids in a different autumnal colour to really extend your colour palette and accentuate the colourful and fun nature of the season.

The Flower Girl

You can also incorporate autumnal colours into your flower girl’s dress. A deep mahogany dress and a wicker basket filled with our Biodegradable Autumn Confetti Mix, is not only adorable, but will complement your seasonal theme perfectly.

A Signature Cocktail for an Autumn Wedding

Another way to call upon the autumnal accents of the season is by creating a signature wedding cocktail. A signature wedding cocktail is an impressive and unique way to incorporate red, gold or orange tones into your wedding day, and another way to impress your guest with your impeccable taste! Apple, cinnamon, salted caramel and ginger – you have a lot to work with when it comes to creating that signature flavour! If you’re into gin then serve your guests a beautiful blackcurrant bramble or wow them with a spiced pear martini.

You can also have a lot of fun with the cocktail name, incorporating your wedding theme or a different fun element that adds a personal touch to your seasonal festivity! Create a cocktail menu so people know the exact ingredients is also a great idea. You could even concoct a few different cocktails to incorporate all the vibrant colours and flavours of the season – this also ensures that you accommodate all your loved ones.


Now for the décor. Go for vibrant yet sophisticated, boho chic is what you want when it comes to décor, especially when it comes to your autumnal tablescape. Deep coloured table cloths and burnt orange or copper coloured tableware is giving us major autumn wedding vibes and we love it! If you want to go for something a bit more natural, soft and romantic, then neutral table cloths with rich coloured statement floral displays are for you! Be sure to incorporate the season’s finest flowers like Mums and Dahlias into your floral centrepieces. Seasonal produce like apples and pinecones can also be scattered across your tablescape – your guests will feel an instant pull towards the season.
Candles, candles and more candles! There’s nothing more romantic than the soft glow of a candlelit room. We really love deep teal- or emerald-coloured candles placed on pillars, for extra height and colour. Similarly, fairy lights are a pretty source of extra lighting. They aren’t too harsh and will be great for when the Autumn sun starts to set in the early evening.

Romantic Touches

Autumn weddings are also a great time to add warm and romantic touches to your special day. A romantic touch not only adds to the dreamy aesthetic but can also impress your guests, making the day unforgettable and endearing.

A beautiful firework display with sparklers can really top off the day while also keeping your loved ones entertained.

Firepits and lanterns are also a must for Autumn weddings! They create an intimate and warm ambience that will really add to the romantic nature of the day.
