Autumn Wedding Flowers 

Say goodbye to summer and hello to autumn! While we are absolute suckers for some bright and vibrant summer flowers, we absolutely love when autumn comes around with those browns, reds, and oranges! We had to put together 36 autumn wedding flower ideas including work from our fabulous Recommended Suppliers! Want some fall bouquet inspiration? Need to know what flowers are in season? Our article has everything you need to know, but in the meantime, here’s a little sneak peek of some of the gorgeous blooms you can find in this season! 

Autumn Wedding Cakes

You’ll want to look at our 32 autumn wedding cakes if you love all those warming cake flavours. Popular flavours for the season include pumpkin, apple, cinnamon, fudge, salted caramel, and more! We’ve put together the most popular fall cake designs and styles, which include pumpkins, leaves, dried fruit, moody florals, and unique cake toppers! Autumn is full of all the good things. Mugs of hot chocolate, cable knit sweaters, crisp chill air, and Halloween! The fleeting season is a favourite for many, and it might be yours too after seeing this inspiration!

Autumn Bridesmaid Dresses

Traditionally, wedding dresses are white and groom suits tend to be black, navy, white or in neutral tones. If you’d like to keep that vibe, get your wedding party to wear the colour for you! Here are some autumnal bridesmaid dresses to show you what we mean! Autumnal gowns come in a variety of warm-toned colours. From red, orange, green and black to mismatched colours, we’ve got all the most popular styles!  Now, let us inspire you…

Autumn Wedding Dresses

When thinking of autumn weddings, we automatically think of boho styling. Couples tend to go for dried wedding flowers and minimalistic decor to complement their more rustic or industrial-style wedding venues. The same applies to wedding dresses! From our autumn real weddings, we’ve seen brides in coloured wedding dresses that match the season, like this stunning orange dress below. However, for those brides who still want the traditional white wedding dress, choosing a boho lace gown is the way to go. As the weather starts to get chillier you may also consider long-sleeved wedding dresses or at least a cover-up!

Autumn Wedding Guest Dresses

If you’re a wedding guest, you might be wondering what you should wear to an autumn wedding. It starts to get a bit chillier but is usually still sunny, so working out an outfit that’s going to keep you warm as well as look good can be a bit tricky. If you’re given a dress code or a specific colour scheme by the bride and groom, that can also be limiting. But fear not, we’re here to help with our autumn wedding guest dress inspiration! 

Orange Wedding Theme

Autumn and the colour orange just go hand in hand. How can you think of one without the other? Orange is the colour of pumpkins and falling leaves and we couldn’t think of a better colour choice for autumn than an orange wedding theme. Orange is the colour of joy, optimism, confidence, and warmth. If that’s what you want to bring to your wedding day, then here are all the ways you can have orange at your wedding! From velvet suit jackets, aesthetic tablescapes, and dynamic stationery and signage, we’ve got all of the ultimate orange wedding inspiration you could ever want. 

Barn Wedding Venues

For the ultimate cosy wedding vibes, you should consider taking a look at some barn wedding venues. Nothing captures that seasonal vibe better. Autumn is the harvest season where we think of farms and barns. You may even go to a haunted farm, corn maze or pumpkin patch during the season! So nothing will be as magical as these rustic barns and the good news is, we have the best barn wedding venues in the UK

If you want your wedding to look cohesive, bringing in a seasonal theme is a must!
