I am pretty sure I say this every year, but Autumn is definitely my favourite season. Brisk walks in the blustery wind, wrapping up warm in chunky knitwear and getting back home to put the heating on as the night draws in… what could be more romantic than cosying up with your loved one, with a good film and a hot chocolate?
These romantic Autumn themes will always lend themselves perfectly to your wedding, and this year is no different, but we have found a strong metallic trend… these are some of our favourites!
Sequins and Sparkles
I’m not talking Strictly sequins here, but subtle classy sequins… this rose gold sequin tablecloth will catch the light and your guests’ eyes!
Metallic Wedding Cake
I love this wedding cake – the copper coloured middle tier, plum ribbon and decorated with grapes and figs. Plain items such as cake stands would be easy to customise to your metallic theme with paints and sprays – just make sure the sprayed parts aren’t going to come into direct contact with your cake!
Fairy lights shouldn’t just be saved for Christmas! These beautiful copper wire battery operated fairy lights are delicate enough to decorate anywhere that needs a little extra sparkle.
Golden Autumn Leaves
Nature paints beautiful colours on the leaves in Autumn already, but why not add an extra glow with gold, copper or bronze paint? Hang them from the ceiling, use them as place settings or scatter them on the tables or down the aisle.
The trend for long rectangular tables, rather than huge circular ones is continuing, so if you are feeling artistic, why not use this to bring all of your ideas together? If you haven’t got time on the morning of the wedding to execute it, do a mock up at home, take a photo, with a list of what is to go on each table and see if your event planner, venue, or florist can help you?
If you have had an Autumn wedding or would like to share your day with us, please get in touch here – we would love to hear from you!
