Why You Should Have an Autumn Wedding

Why You Should Have an Autumn Wedding

Thick oversized jumpers, warm drinks and open fires. There is nothing you can’t love about the cosiest season of the year: autumn! Holding your wedding amongst the crunchy leaves and orange and brown littered backdrops will give you a wedding you and your guests will never forget. So pour a hot drink, grab a blanket, get cosy and let’s talk autumn weddings:

The Weather is Ideal
Autumn is the perfect time of year for a celebration. The mix of the sun coming down through the falling leaves paired with the cool breeze makes for an ideal outside wedding. Plus, no humidity making for a frizz-free ceremony and reception!


The Flower Selection is Endless
A mixture of deep reds, golds, plums, oranges and countless tones of green will make sure that all photos from the day will be Instagram-worthy. Why not add some tree bark in there for good measure? 


Seasonal Food and Drink
Who doesn’t want a hot chocolate with cream and sprinkles? Completed with a personalised mug as a party favour for the guests? If you’d prefer more of a grown-up drink you could always serve warm apple cider with a cinnamon stick instead. If you’re having an outdoor wedding you can even have a marshmallow roasting station over an open fire – perfect to keep the kids occupied.


Getting Cosy
When you think of autumn, you instantly think of getting cosy. If you’re having an outside wedding, handing out knitted blankets to your guests act not only as something handy but a unique party favour to remember the day. 


If your style isn’t traditional white dresses and white flowers, an autumn wedding would be perfect for you. You could hold a Halloween wedding complete with a carved pumpkin surrounded by candles as the centrepiece for each guest table. Wearing a black wedding dress contrasted with the orange of the trees would make for stunning photographs.


Photo Ops

Speaking of photos: having an autumn wedding will give your photos the wow-factor. You’ll have the twilight look in all of your photos, giving everything a beautiful warm glow. Having sparklers and fairy lights will give it even more of a fairytale feeling. 


Cheaper and More Available
Booking your wedding in autumn can not only be easier but cheaper. There will be more room in the venue and wedding planner calendars. More free room means more time to plan for you! As people tend to go on holiday less in the autumn it means there is more of a likelihood of them being able to attend your big day as opposed to summer when everyone’s away with the kids!
