While many couples choose to tie the knot over the summer months, autumn can be the most magical time of year to get married. With some glorious sunny days still to be had, this is certainly the most colourful and vibrant of seasons, and there’s much to be said for picking a date between September and November.
If you’re planning an autumn wedding, here are a few useful pointers to help you carry it off in style.
Planning an Autumn Wedding
The golds, oranges and reds of autumn can create a stunning backdrop to your wedding photos, so choose a reception venue which will show them off in all their glory. Spend some time researching various locations and look at professional photographers’ previous autumn shoots at those venues, so that you know the most scenic places for your own photographs.
You could consider making use of autumn’s bounty when it comes to decorating your venue and in the catering, too. Table decorations might make use of the vibrant autumn leaves in rustic, hand-tied bouquets, while a comfort food menu featuring the incredible array of vegetables, meats and fruits which are now in season is sure to warm guests as the evening draws in and they begin to relax into the entertainment and party spirit.
Choosing the Right Entertainment
Because the nights are drawing in, a few fireworks and warming cocktails earlier in the evening before the main party gets underway can ensure your reception goes off with a bang. Just make sure you check with the venue beforehand, and even see about getting their help in finding a company who can manage the display.
More importantly, shutting out the chill and enjoying some live music is one of the best ways to ensure your autumn wedding is a success. Hiring musicians from a well-known company such as The Talent means you and your guests get the best live entertainment, and they can advise on the best autumn playlist to really bring the season into your celebrations.
