Autumn is one of the most romantic times of the year to get married. With the leaves changing to golden, red, and brown hues, surrounding landscapes can look almost magical. The weather’s usually not too bad either.
If you’re planning a wedding in late September or October, here are some trends you might like to take notice of.
Outdoor weddings are becoming very popular. Of course, you have to take a chance on the weather, but Autumn in the UK is usually fairly temperate. If you’re in a location in the Lake District you can have a ready-built backdrop of outstanding beauty for your nuptials. Broadoaks Country House has amazing grounds you can use as your autumnal wedding backdrop.
Get Married Under a Floral Arch
If you want to add an extra frisson of nature and glamour, there are options to include a floral arch. Not only are they great for photographs but they form a stunning centrepiece for your wedding ceremony. Scattering autumn leaves down the aisle can be another option to bring the autumn theme indoors.
When you hold your reception, you want to add some glamour to the tables, whether you’re having your celebrations indoors or outdoors. Autumn leaves are perfect for this and are a great way to blend your wedding in with the surroundings. You can also add fresh blooms if you want your table centrepieces to pop out as guests walk in through the door.
Velvet and Tweed for Autumn
While it might not be the first thing on your mind when you are planning outfits for your big day, the choice of material can be quite important. Velvet is not traditional for weddings but that shouldn’t make a difference to you this Autumn. It adds a big splash of opulence whether your bridesmaids are dressed in velvet, or you’ve had your dress made of it.
Velvet also adds a layer of warmth which is critical for those cooler autumn days, and you have lots of luxurious colours to choose from. What’s more, it looks absolutely fantastic!
Tweed acts as a great compliment to velvet and is perfect for morning suits. There are lots of different designs to choose from and they certainly have something rustic that fits well with the Lake District landscape.
Posing for Photos
We’ve already mentioned that the backdrop of the Lake District is perfect for a romantic wedding. It’s even better if you plan your big day for the Autumn. This gives you the perfect background for all those wedding photos that you and your friends are going to enjoy for many years to come.
Add Some Fun Games to Your Autumn Wedding Celebrations
With the ceremony out of the way, you need to keep all the guests busy during the reception. There are some amazing ways you can do this apart from the food, drink, and music. For example, adding a few games like bobbing apples and scavenger hunts can keep both the kids and adults entertained as the day draws on. Clay pigeon shoots?
