Top Autumn Wedding Style For 2017-2018
It’s time to FALL IN LOVE
Autumn is just around the corner and soon we will be seeing the leaves change and the nights draw in. It is a season full of beautiful colours and crisp mornings, it signifies the end of the summer but the nature’s natural cycle gives plenty of room for unique fall beauty. It is a beautiful season to get married in and considerably cheaper than the hotter months. In this post we will explore some of the autumn trends that are catching the eye of excited couples this year.
Make the most of the season and embrace the beautiful colours it provides. Plan to have at least some of your photo shoot outside (if weather allows). There are so many varied and rich shades available, the season creates a captivating backdrop.
Practical & Glamorous
While you shop for the wedding outfits think practically about the season. You don’t have to lose the glamour but you could reconsider that off the shoulder dress you have had your eye on or potentially team it up with a shrug or bolero.
Don’t forget that autumn can be very warm too so your task is to find a dress that is suitable and adaptable for any weather.
Even if you opt for a brave style for your own wedding wear, consider the comfort of your bridesmaids and give them the option of choosing a more practical option.

The nights might draw in earlier during the autumn but that means you get the opportunity to play with lighting and create a warm atmosphere even if there is a nip in the air. Fairy lights can be hung in trees, in marquees or even in an original way such as the tankard below.
You could also use seasonal vegetables like pumpkins, blackberries and butternut squash and think how to use them in a unique way as part of the décor. It doesn’t have to be Halloween to display a pumpkin as you can see below but they certainly give a distinctive autumn energy.
While we are on the subject of food why not use some of the autumnal goodies and add them to your menu. These seasonal inspired recipes are often traditional and will warm your guests up. Ideas include;
- Pumpkin soup
- Apple crumble
- Butternut squash and mushroom risotto
- Pear cake
- Rustic fruit tart
- Roasted vegetables – carrots, leaks, squash and pumpkin
- Beetroot and onion soup
- Quails with fig and walnut sauce
- Mulled cider
Obviously orange is the most obvious colour for an autumn wedding but don’t be afraid to experiment a little beyond rust. Consider other warm colours such as chocolate, burgundy, red, yellow, dark blue, and racing green.
Your bouquet isn’t just about seasonal flowers; consider adding berries or baby squash to ensure it is completely in season. Some perfect seasonal flowers to look out for include…
- Calla Lily
- Cymbidum orchid
