Traditionally, people wish to have their wedding in spring or summer because of the warm weather that not only allows light and airy outfits but also quarantees diverse outdoor pictures.
Why would you not want to organize an original wedding, unique for its marvelous autumn colors light up with a warm sun?
We´ll provide you with few tip show to put such a wedding together.
The fall gardens with trees and a little pond or a tree avenue with fallen leaves seems to be a perfect place where to get married. To have the opportunity to set up the wedding reception to a gazebo or a restaurant with big windows and a view to a autumn country side seems ideal. Considering the fact that the sunset comes quite early, your ceremony can take place right during the sunset and thus be even more romantic than usual.
Color shadows, wedding gown for brides, groom and bridesmaids
The fall offers whole range of beautifully colored shadows of golden, rusty, orange, brown, dark green or red. Don’t be afraid to put aside the typical white wedding gown or at least say yes to combination of white and such seasonal colors. Take into consideration the bridesmaids dresses. Why not to dress them all in different fall colors? The groom needs to match with the bride as usual.
Should the wedding ceremony take place outside it is always smart to have some scarf ready, sleeves or gloves that will not only serve as a protection from cold weather but also as accessory. The other option offers a long sleeve wedding gown.
And I cannot forget to mention the beauty of seasonal flowers, leaves or wild roses that you can incorporate into a head wreath for example. Other flowers like dahlias, chrysanthemum, sunflowers, gardenias could be the right choice for your special day bouqet.
Wedding announcement, table invitations, name tags, thank you cards
How about hand-made paper invitations with motives of autumn leaves, acorns or a grain spike ?
Moreover, chestnut animals and different figures can be used as a part of name tags on the table. The guests can save those as souvenirs and a nice memory to your wedding day. It is also very inventive to use a bunch of grapes, an apple, a pear or beautifully colored leaves with attached name tag.
As always, a bright sunny day will add a special magic to your wedding pictures. But your pictures can be also unique with the typically foggy background weather. The rainy weather could be a great opportunity for the originality of gum boots and umbrellas. If you hire a good photographer, your pics will be beautiful no matter what the weather is like.
It is always good to decide what style your wedding should follow. Lets have a look into a country side style inspired by harvest time, fruit or hop picking, or grape harvest. The location or reception table should be decorated then with beautifully colored leaves, seasonal flowers, wild roses, rowan berry, small pumpkins, barley, hop, all kinds of fall berries or tiny fruits. The tables could offer bowls with chestnuts, nuts, apples with cinnamon or caramel candy. To create a truly cozy atmosphere you can light up the romantic candles and place them in small scooped out pumpkins…
Wedding table and cake

It offers venison pasties, vegetable soups, classic sirloin and homemade apple pie as a dessert, pear or plum bun, honest apple strudel. Enriched with vanilla cream, pudding or ice cream will certainly enjoy it all. And if you need to warm up after an outdoor photo shoot or play serve mulled wine or grog. For drink can be offer apple cider, plum brandy, wine.
Grateful autumn complements are pumpkins. What if you use it carved as a stockpot, with pumpkin soup, of course ;-), or fruit punch?
