The dress:


The most important dress you’ll ever wear in your life and with an Autumn wedding you can have the dress of your dreams, without (hopefully) having to worry about being too cold, although it is a good idea to consider the weather (but it is your day and if that’s the dress you want, we say go for it!)…

Try on lots of dresses until you’re sure you’ve found ‘the one’ and then try on a couple more for extra knowledge that it really is perfect.



The venue may be dependent on the theme, if you’re looking for a classic wedding a barn may not be what you’re after, likewise a rustic wedding probably won’t fit in well at a hotel! If you’re opting for an Autumn wedding, there are a couple of things to consider…

  • If it rains will you still get wonderful photographs?
  • Autumn may not be the best time of year for ouside canapes
  • Ask to see photographs of previous weddings at the venue at the same time of year

There are lots of venues and lots of price variations, it’s worth remembering good venues book up well in advance, so if your dream venue is out of budget try asking for a Friday wedding to see if this brings costs down or look for venues based on recommendation, reviews and the feel you get when you walk in.

Colour schemes and Flowers:


Autumn is traditionally the perfect month for creative, bright colours, but more recently the rustic oranges and pastel shades are taking over Autumn weddings, whether this is due to the increase in themed weddings such as vintage and rustic, which wouldn’t compliment bold colours or bride preference you can’t go wrong with pastels…

From soft pinks and purples, blues and coral shades pastel colours are a really good choice, they will emphasise the brides dress and won’t take any focus away from her in photographs, will compliment a nice summer tan and are easy to match with flowers…

Speaking of flowers, when you’re in full wedding planning swing it’s a good idea to book an appointment with your florist, explain how you envisage your bouquets to look, discuss flower ideas and listen to them, the flowers of your dreams may not be in season, but they will know the best alternatives and will advise flowers to complement your bouquets, a few popular early Autumn flowers are Roses, Iris and Lavender.

The cake:


The wedding cake is the statement piece, obviously it’s what everyone comes for isn’t it?!

But with your Autumn wedding you really can go wild, now we’re loving the naked wedding cake and in the summer months the gorgeous berries that can be added will look wonderful, combine your wedding cake table with a dessert table and you’re bound to have the perfect Insta-Ready images and a table to really be proud of!
