Many people prefer to have their magical day during the summer months, but an autumn wedding can be truly captivating and romantic due to the fantastic colours and mild climate that this season provides. Let’s take a look at some of the best reasons to have an autumn wedding…
Decorate with autumn in mind
Autumn brings many beautiful colours and it can be a great idea to theme your wedding around the season. Autumn colours such as burnt oranges, browns and rich reds can be warm and emphasise romance and they so easily fit into any kind wedding décor. You could even have your flower girl throwing colourful golden leaves instead of the more usual petals from flowers, or you could make your wedding invitations in the shape of a leaf.
Plan an autumn-themed menu
This is a season that brings many tasty foods, and you can easily conjure up a menu that breathes the delicious flavours of autumn. Why not greet your guests with a glass of warmed, mulled cider, and serve a game bird like pheasant or quail for the triumphant main course. Beautiful!
No extreme weather
The weather can be just as perfect in autumn – the uncomfortable summer heat has vanished but Jack Frost will not be nipping at your nose just yet. This gives you a great reason to appreciate the outdoors and bask in the comfortable temperatures and magnificent autumn scenery. Your wedding photographer will be in their element with a backdrop of attractive golden foliage for your wedding photos.
Venues likely to be cheaper
With most people preferring to tie the knot in the brighter spring and summer months, having your big day in autumn can save you a lot of money. Wedding venues are likely to be cheaper and services such as wedding photographers and caterers can be more affordable.
Depending on the time of day which your wedding will be held, it would be a great idea to add candlelight to the ceremony. Not only will it great a captivating and attractive backdrop but it is incredibly romantic. Imagine saying your vows to your partner in the warming glow of candlelight.
There are many ideal venues for weddings that are suitable for marquees to be used in the grounds, such as castles and fabulous hotels that will offer you affordable prices in the autumn months. Take advantage and set the date today before it’s too late and you have to wait another year before you tie the knot!
