Can I admit something? I like Autumn way better than summer. So Autumn weddings naturally are kinda my favourites. But they can fall victim to clichéd decor ideas sometimes (scattered dried leaves down the aisle anyone?). That's why today as we approach the very best season, I thought I'd share some ideas for a stylish Autumn wedding.
Try dried flowers and grasses
Pampas grass is a huge trend in wedding floristry right now, and I'm a big fan. It brings the perfect mix of late summer, early Autumn, harvest boho vibes that anyone would want at their wedding right? Dried flowers and grasses have the benefit of a gorgeous muted tone, which suits an Autumn / Fall theme perfectly. Also bonus points - you get to keep all your flowers afterwards because they last.
Copper paper buttonholes
Accents of copper suit an autumnal wedding down to the ground, and these metallic copper/rose gold paper buttonholes are the perfect unique detail. Simple and stylish looking with an industrial edge, these handmade buttonholes look particularly amazing with a tweed suit. You can get yours in the shop here.
Seasonal fruit as wedding cake decor
Seasonal fruit like figs and berries give everyone those cosy Autumn feels, so why not adorn the top of your cake with them? Better yet, include them as part of your wedding buffet and pile rustic platters high with seasonal fruit and veg - this almost doubles up as decor too (until your guests demolish it all).
Woodland Wedding Vibes
Woodland weddings were made for Autumn, and whether or not you've bagged an actual forest for your venue, you can bring a little of the outside in with these wood slice and moss place cards. Personalised with your guests names, they get to keep a little bit of wedding day atmosphere to take home with them - so they'll always remember your big day (awwwww).
A hot chocolate bar
If you saw my post on DIY wedding stations, you'll know that I'm a big fan of pop-up *anything* bars at weddings. I love how they can get your guests talking to each other, and where better to get to know one another than around some steaming hot chocolates with marshmallows. If you can think of a more cosy wedding idea then I would love to know (also if you are a fan of the hygge trend, you'll love this hygge wedding ideas blog post).
So I know I said I was anti-cliché, but there are ways to include pumpkins in your wedding without being cheesy. Spray paint them in mixed metallics and cream colours to bring a classy touch to an Autumn staple. Spray painted pumpkins can be used as table decor, or even just dotted around your venue to bring a little seasonal charm into your big day.
I hope these ideas help you in your quest for a stylish nod to Autumn in your wedding. Do you have any other Autumnal wedding ideas to share with me? Let me know in the comments.
