When I think of Autumn I think of pumpkin spiced lattes, crisp leaves, Halloween and big coats and scarves.
So today I’ve rounded up 11 of our best tips and ideas for incorporating Autumn elements into your wedding without feeling like you’re hosting a Halloween parade.
Rethink Autumn Wedding Colours
I love orange but I think I’m the minority here. Your Autumn wedding does not need to include orange, or yellow, or any combination of the two, unless you want it to. You can outfit your wedding in hot pink and green and still get married in October, and it will be fine. But if you want that cosy autumnal feel an easy trick for coming up with a colour palette that doesn’t feel like a theme party is to mix pastels with jewel tones, like deep plum with blush pink.
Mix A little Pink with your Orange
If you want to cut some of the fall from your orange, mix it with a muted pink like mauve.
Metallic is neutral
We currently live in a magical time when gold and copper are neutrals and spray paint is available. Be thankful for that.
Orange doesn’t have to be pumpkins
If you want to incorporate orange without resorting to leaves or pumpkins, look to the fruit aisle.
And pumpkins don’t have to be Orange
They can also be gold, silver or hot pink! Get creative.
Speaking of pumpkins…
Pumpkins are basically organic vases once you scoop out the seeds.
Leaves are super cheap
Like really cheap. Which means they can make for really cool big impact decor.
And they’re kinda like flowers
Which means you can mimic the look of those cool flower walls but for way less money. Dried bouquets also make an affordable seasonal alternative to fresh flowers.
Your local fruit and veg store is your friend
Autumn is harvest season! Which means there’s an abundance of decor options right in the produce department of your local grocery store.
Who needs cakes when there are doughnuts?!
Nobody ever got mad at a pile of apple cider doughnuts!
Let’s get functional
Unless you live in one of those magical places where it’s warm year round, Autumn weddings mean brisk evening air. Basket of blankets doubles as decor and a preventative measure against the inevitability that someone is going to forget a jacket or sweater.
