Ideas for an autumn-themed wedding

If you don’t want to get married on a hot day, the autumn is the perfect season for you. In fact, after spring, autumn is couples’ favourite season to get married, because they appreciate all its benefits: beautiful colours, delicious fruits and perfect temperature. Autumn is also the most versatile season when it comes to decorations and colour schemes. Keep in mind that everything must harmonise in order for your theme to stand out, but, as you will see, autumn elements are not difficult to apply. Here are just a few ideas that you should discuss with professional companies like Cameo Event Hire when renting wedding catering equipment.

Table decorations

The restaurant wedding reception is the biggest part of your day; all your friends and family will be there, so you need to do your best and pay attention to details. To exemplify an autumn theme, ask your vendor for orange tablecloths or tablecloths with autumn prints and inserts. Also, if you don’t find classic vases particularly tempting, consider replacing them with pumpkins, which have a unique, rustic look.

The bridal bouquet

The bride’s bouquet is an essential element in the bride’s outfit and an excellent place where you can incorporate an autumnal theme. Choose yellow, orange and red seasonal flowers, or, if you’re feeling daring, try adding one or two orange leaves to maximise the contrast with your white wedding dress. A talented florist will help you pick and combine the perfect flowers.

Bridesmaid wedding dresses

After bride and groom, bridesmaids are the next guests to stand out from the crowd, so you should make sure they look spick and span. To complete your wedding theme, you can ask them to wear orange, red or coral dresses. Most brides prefer to have all bridesmaids dressed in the same colour, but if you don’t like this idea, you can choose their dress colours so that they form an autumnal gradient. Not only will they look unique, but your photographer will appreciate this as well and have a lot more creative options to work with.

The wedding cake

Last, but not least, the wedding cake is the piece de resistance of your magical day and a way to top off the theme. You can go for a classic white cake, decorated with copper marzipan vineyard leaves or other autumnal flowers. The reveal of the wedding cake is much awaited by all guests and it’s the perfect occasion to emphasise the wedding theme even more.
