Autumn Wedding Decorations
From the outset, your wedding invitations should reflect the season, perhaps tied with brown string, and featuring earthy motifs and colours. The all-white summer wedding palette will feel chilly and unfriendly in Autumn, so when styling the venue or marquee, think reds, greens, chocolates, rusts, yellows and oranges – with gold as the accent but not the main event. The trick with Autumn wedding decorations is to bring the outside in, so start off with a showstopper like a tree decorated with fairy lights, then embellish the venue and tables with warm touches like hessian bunting, string bobbins, pine cones, even squashes, pumpkins, conkers, chestnuts and acorns.
Autumn Wedding Food
All of Britain’s best produce is coming into season in Autumn, so reflect that in your wedding menu, with plenty of warming soups, root vegetables and slow-roasted lamb or beef. Red wine, sloe gin or an oaky Chardonnay will catch the season, and consider serving warm drinks like mulled cider, hot toddys or late-night hot chocolate in shabby-chic chipped enamel mugs. For the pièce de résistance, the wedding cake could be placed on a tree stump and decorated with seasonal berries.
