Our reasoning behind why an autumn celebration is the ideal choice
We have already mentioned a few in the beginning, but let us delve a bit deeper into the topic. Planning a marriage celebration between the months of September and November is a brilliant decision for quite a few reasons. Not only do you get to enjoy the last warm sun rays, but you will also have an event illuminated by a magical gold-infused light. Moreover, tying the knot outside the peak summer months means you won’t have to compete with plenty of other brides who dream of a summertime celebration. Consequently, you will also be able to choose from a larger pool of vendors, given they will be less busy. This means you have a higher chance of booking the vendor you’ve discovered and loved, securing an unmatched wedding experience.
How to plan the perfect autumn wedding
When it comes to devising a flawless autumn celebration, there are more than a few things you need to consider. This means you will be responsible for making plenty of important choices, which might cause you to feel a bit overwhelmed. To help you out in this venture, we have compiled a brief list of tips which, hopefully, will get at least some of the stress off of your shoulders and promise a smoother planning experience.
- Choosing a venue
The first step in planning your autumn wedding is choosing the ideal venue to host it. You may already have the perfect place in mind or are yet to be searching for the loveliest venue of them all. One of the best tips you can utilise at this point is to choose a location that offers you versatility. This means a place with indoor and outdoor reception venues, so you can easily move inside if the weather isn’t favourable. Rustic barns and country manor houses would make an ideal match, although there are plenty of other options you can explore, as well.
- Deciding on the perfect theme
Given you are planning an autumn wedding, it only makes sense to adorn it with an autumnal theme. Embrace the glorious warm hues of mustard yellow, orange, and red, and plan how to utilise them in your chosen space. If you are ready to unleash your creativity and design a unique celebration, consider adding blanket baskets if the weather gets chilly, as well as umbrellas in case it starts raining. To elevate the welcoming experience, opt for serving warm cider or hot punch to warm your guests up for an evening of magic and delight.
- Selecting your attire
Apart from ensuring you will make your guests happy; you also need to focus on yourself. Choosing the right attire for your autumn celebration can be tricky, but there is a simple rule to follow to ensure you don’t make a mistake. In general, the perfect autumn wedding dress is the one you can easily add accessories to. If the weather gets colder than you might have anticipated, a three-quarter-length sleeves and a floor-length skirt will do the trick. This will allow you to choose the style of dress you’ve always dreamt of and have something to wear on top if the temperatures suddenly drop.
- Finding the perfect decor ideas
Hearing the word ‘autumn’ almost instantly makes our mind paint a picture of a cosy, gold-infused season with lovely, soft light. And there is nothing that should stop you from turning your venue into an autumnal dream. Think of what you can use as a decor to grasp the essence of this season. Research lighting solutions that will cosy up the atmosphere. Use dahlias, chrysanthemums, or sunflowers for your floral arrangements, and adorn the tablescapes with burnt orange, olive green, or berry red accents. This will instantly create a pleasant and warm ambience, giving it the right amount of warmth and cosiness, you need for your autumn affair.
