Dress

Given the gorgeous vintage vibe, hosted by the seasonal tones and general elegant aura of Autumn. Why not consider a gorgeous Vintage dress? There are so many pre loved wedding dress businesses dotted all over the country, you simply won't miss one. There is also the option of following the 2020 trend of a modern gown with a 1920s twist. The likes of the beautiful Ellie Goulding and stunning Kate Middleton, showcased this trend beautifully. Ellie paraded a beautiful white gown, inspired by Princess Anne and Bianca Jagger – hosting traditional elements such as this stunning high – neck lace frill. Elegance and simplicity.

Or, maybe you are in to DIY projects. Does your Grandma have a gorgeous gown that is ready to be upcycled?

How many stories will your vintage dress have to tell?

The neutral colours, accompanied by the piercing orange and reds - makes it undeniably the best colour scheme for an Autumn wedding! Almost every location in the UK, hosts a nearby farm shop - offering locally sourced fruit and vegetables. Speak with your caterer and ensure that all of your produce is sourced locally, you will be lowering your carbon footprint and local produce is simply delicious!

Think about all the mulled wine you could drink, and not to forget the hot chocolate for the little ones!

Venue

A rustic barnyard or vineyard themed wedding, with a boho vibe fits the autumnal vibe perfectly. An essence of warmth and serenity, is something that you want to be reflected in your choice of venue, given the season! 
Or maybe you are considering an outdoor wedding? The beauty of autumn is that it isn't too warm, nor is it too cold! Giving you the ability to host a ceremony outdoor. The beautiful autumn leaves and colour palette or merlot and gold makes for an excellent natural décor. An outdoor ceremony opens doors for activities, best suited to the season. How about toasting some marshmallows by a roasting fire? Or a dance around the fire pit with your loved ones?

Be sure not to forget those lovely little fairy lights!
