Crisp weather, rich seasonal hues, comforting cuisine… Autumn is a lovely time to get married!
For modern couples, customization is everything, they need to speak their style and entertain in their own way. Autumnal weddings are perfect for that, it’s all about going back to basics with style.
Here are some of our favorite ideas that we gathered from experts over the web for the arrival season wedding celebrations!
Thoughtful floral arrangements combined with fresh fruit (like citrus in rich ochre hues or deeper toned figs, pomegranates and grapes) are undeniable of this season and will look amazingly great on the dinner table. Also, fresh fruit can be used at cocktail hour centerpieces giving a vibrant touch of color. Just think about all the colors we name after fruit! Stick to evergreen and seasonal produce, for color-rich centerpieces.
Burgundies bottle greens, amber tones and a moody range of plum are leading the way in wedding color schemes. And talking about metallics, copper and golden hues are taking the lead this season, use them to accent your color palette. Reflective metallics have brightening qualities that add multidimensional depth. Pastel and neutral accents are still the most popular complementary colors.
Celebrate the Pantone’s Colour of the Year by incorporating this palette!
Opulent tables are now cozy and natural. Scratch the tablecloth and let your table and chairs live naturally in the space, and add romantic seasonal ornaments and foliage for a sophisticated look that feels more modern than it does rustic.
Wooden banquet tables in chestnut and maples are understated and elegant in all the right ways.
Foliage doesn’t need to be lusciously green. Instead, go for golden hues mixed with seasonal branches and autumnal, woody textures. Freshly picked, wild-looking bouquets are still reigning in the land of florals. The hottest stem? Wine-colored dahlias.
For tabletops, arrangements are looking more green and leafy; succulents, eucalyptus, wheat greens, acacia, and bay leaf branches. And as we mentioned before, pops of color are provided not by blooms, but by berries like Brazilian pepper berries, hypericum berry sprays or raspberries.
Deep burgundy details look beautiful when paired with lush greenery. These can be effective both inside your venue as well as backdrops for your guests’ pics!
Smaller Simpler Wedding Cakes
The wedding cake is shrinking. This autumn, couples are going down the minimal route and small, clean, translucent cakes have officially arrived for the season!
It doesn’t need to be huge to wow your guests: a simple bake can be elegant and just as effective. Couples still hold stock in the classic notion of cutting the cake, but they’re supplementing it with second-string dessert to serve the guests. The hot pick right now? The true seasonal favorite: Pie!
