Autumn weddings can be beautiful and creative. There are endless ways to capture the essence of autumn at your wedding. From colour trends to decorations, these simple ideas will help make your autumn wedding stand out.
This time of year it gets darker earlier, so why not embrace it by having lighting that compliments the atmosphere. Dimly lit lights and candles are the best way to do this. It not only embodies this season, but it looks great as well.
2. Keep in Touch with Nature
If you are having an indoor wedding, which you probably are if you are getting married in Ireland, bring nature to you. Decorate the venue with loads of trees and seasonal flowers. Something about autumn screams nature, so it’s only natural to want to showcase it at your wedding.
3. Rustic Theme
Themed weddings are becoming more and more popular. If you are having an autumn wedding, you should consider having a rustic theme. It will help you to plan other elements of your wedding if you have something to base them around.
4. Colour Schemes
This is one of the first things you should decide on when you are planning your wedding. There are plenty of autumn colour schemes to choose from but it’s important that you are willing to commit to it from the start.
Everybody loves flower centrepieces, but why not mix it up a little? Pumpkins are in season around this time of year, so use that to your benefit and create a unique pumpkin centrepiece that will get your guests talking.
While this is more of an American past time, we have to admit there is something fun and cosy about making s’mores. For an after dinner treat, it might be fun to have a s’mores making table for people with a sweet tooth.
7. Autumn Cocktails
We love the idea of having a bartender come up with a signature cocktail to serve at your wedding reception. If you’re having an autumn wedding, ask the bartender to give the cocktail an autumn feel. Apples and berries are in season this time of year, or if you are a bit more dare devilish why not ask him to mix up a pumpkin flavoured drink.
If you are having kids at your wedding, it’s important to come up with ways to keep them occupied. If your wedding is close to halloween, set up a bobbing for apple corner. It is sure to go down a treat!
While you have to obtain a licence to be in possession of fireworks in Ireland, if you can get your hands on one, it will make for a stunning wedding surprise. If not, buy multiple boxes of sparklers, have all your wedding guests go outside when it gets dark (weather permitted), and set them off together for spectacular wedding photographs.
