When you think of autumn, what immediately comes to mind?
From hot chocolate to colourful leaves, it’s a special, snug time of year. Some of these elements can also prove to be great additions for an autumn wedding!
We’ve shared some ideas to help you create an autumnal wedding, and make the most of the fabulous season.
Beat the chill
You could warm up with the Hargate Hall outdoor fire pit. Creating a cosy, romantic atmosphere against the colder evenings. You could even include sparklers for that extra magical touch, and a toasted marshmallow or two always goes down well! The fire pit has been a hit with so many couples. It’s a great way to end the evening.
There is something so dreamy about fairy lights against a night sky. They add a sense of warmth to the air. Whether they’re wrapped around chairs, or draped in trees, they’re super versatile, and perfect for creating a cosy environment. Go crazy without outdoor lighting and let the lights twinkle as a backdrop to your special day.
Hot chocolate bar
The perfect way to warm up! A hot chocolate is sure to put a smile on your guests’ faces. You could even include extras such as marshmallows and cream for the ultimate hot chocolate experience. Or, you could create hot chocolate favours, even adding a few sweets, for your guests to enjoy at home.
You could also keep warm with a hot mulled wine station, sure to please your guests on a chilly evening. A different, but still a delicious option for after your ceremony. It will certainly bring the autumn vibes. We’ve found a great recipe here.
If you’re having an outdoor ceremony, guests will undoubtedly appreciate you going to the effort of offering blankets. They’re a great way to keep cosy in the changing autumn weather, and create a snug atmosphere.
With autumn comes a host of wonderful colours, from yellows and oranges to ruby reds. You can see these colours on display in the grounds of Hargate.
For an extra special autumnal touch, you could decorate the aisle using leaves, scattering their glorious colours along the way. Or, you could even add autumnal flowers to the centrepieces of the tables for a splash of colour. They can also make stunning bouquets, too.
We might typically associate them with Halloween, but they have so much more to offer. Not only are they a staple of the season, but they can make a striking piece of decoration (and they don’t cost a fortune!).
You could get really creative, and spray paint them. Mix and match different sizes for table décor, or line the aisle with them. You could also use them to hold name cards for the seating plan by attaching labels. There’s a lot of fun to be had with pumpkins.
Autumn can be a truly magical season to get married. There are so many seasonal touches you can add, to help make your day one you will never forget.
