Ideas for Autumn Weddings
The beauty of Autumn is a wonderful inspiration for a warm and loving wedding. The fresh morning air, bright skies, burnt orange tips on the trees, the flicker of flames from romantic fireplaces and spicy cinnamon smells are sure to light up the senses of both you and your guests.
With autumn comes a real change in event decorating. Outside our beautiful beach communities around Australia, the change means that bright summery blues and pastels just won't cut it for decorating your event. Warm pumpkin, burnt sienna, cool olive and mustard yellows are the hues of this season. Mix them, if you dare, with dark berries and chocolate browns.
Spicy orange pumpkins create a whimsical feel for your autumn themed event. We may not be in Halloween season during Autumn in Australia, but pumpkins offer a beautiful and budget-conscious alternative to blossoms this season. Use them as centrepieces with votive candles arranged in their hollowed out centres, miniature pumpkins as monogrammed place card holders, and lighter pumpkins can be strung from the ceiling alongside paper ball lanterns. Miniature pumpkins can be bought from most good green grocers, but you should pre-order yours if you plan to purchase in bulk and desire a certain orange, silver or green hue from your decorator pumpkins.
Another wonderful decorating item for an Autumn-themed wedding are leaves in all shades of brown, orange, red and green. The colours naturally complement each another beautifully and you can arrange them in wreaths, hang them from fishing line and drape across a marquee ceiling alongside warm coloured lanterns. Try placing large pillar candles on nests of autumn leaves as a centrepiece, or use perfect single leaves as quirky adornments on top of crisp white linen napkins at your wedding reception tables.
Pink Frosting has an incredible array of autumn themed favour ideas for your guests, ranging from autumn themed bottle stoppers to maple leaf parasols. If you are organising a small event or wedding, take inspiration from the Halloween jack-o-lantern and carve your own miniature pumpkin treats with filigree designs for your guests.
Flowers in season during the Australian autumn include Antherium, Alstomeria, Asters, Azalea, Baby's Breath, Bird of Paradise, Brunii, Sim Carnation, Pixie Carnation, Cosmos, Delphinium, Easter Daisy, Frangipani, Garden Roses, Gardenia, Gladioli, Hangers, Hydrangea, Iris, Jonquil, Lavender, Leucadendron, Lisianthus, Nerine, Poppies, Peniculata, Privet Berries, Proteas, Designer Coloured Roses, Stephanotis, Stock, Sweet Pea, Tropical Orchids, Tuberose, Tulips, LA Lily, Tiger Lily, November Lily, Violets and Water Lilies.
Food and beverages
As Autumn is synonymous with a more homely style of cooking - apples, squash, pears and slow cooked meats - it makes sense that your wedding menu takes on a hearty tone. Cinnamon Catering recommends Swiss brown mushroom cups filled with hazelnut and macadamia pesto, pepper crusted roast beef tenderloin, served on beetroot and sweet potato salad and Apple Cider Martinis. See more autumn menu inspirations.
Your stationery can take on the Autumn theme with pressed leaves as your inspiration on letterpress invitations and autumn motifs on your menus. Alternatively, you could simply be inspired by the colours of the season by juxtaposing orange card with chocolate grosgrain ribbon and cream envelopes.
Pink Frosting offers a beautiful range of Autumn themed wedding favours, decorations and wedding accessories to buy for your wedding day. You can browse Pink Frosting's Autumn themed wedding shop here.
