17 August 2023
Throughout the years you are starting to see more and more Autumnal weddings. Instead of the traditional Summer wedding or Spring wedding, many couples are deciding to brave the colder weather and tie the knot during Autumn. If you love pumpkins, earthy tones, and leaves falling, an Autumnal wedding may be on the cards for you. Whether you are simply looking at options for your wedding day, or perhaps you have decided on a pumpkin fuelled wedding, we have a range of gorgeous Autumnal decorations that will definitely be able to make your big day that little bit more special.
Place Setting Options
One aspect of a wedding that is very important is the table settings. As guests are sitting down at their assigned tables, getting ready to eat their meal, it is essential that the tables are decorated to perfection! Especially at an Autumnal wedding, you will want to incorporate warming tones of oranges, browns and greens. As well as this, it is a good idea to bring in different textures to show off a bit of quirkiness and speciality.
Around the table, a wonderful option to go for is a leaf themed garland. The different tones of orange and brown, as well as the velvet texture will complete your table setting and make your guests feel as if they are in a woodland. Delegate this garland around the edge of the table or have it hanging around the room, you could even use it as an Autumnal table runner that will certainly be a topic of conversation for your guests. The versatility of this leaf garland is what we love most about it, and the beautiful colour schemes are the perfect addition to your Autumnal wedding.
To finish your table setting, amongst the warming flowers and table decor, you might want to add an ornament onto your guests plate. One option for a wonderful ornament that will bring a unique taste to the table is a velvet pumpkin. In this image we have chosen a grey velvet pumpkin decoration which doesn't overpower the table, whilst showing a luxurious feel with the silver stalk. Adding a subtle yet simply stunning decoration like this onto your guests plates will just add that extra touch of detail that we know your guests would appreciate.
If you want to simplify your table settings, you can also bring colour and fun with these opulent toadstool and linen pumpkin decorations. You can still intertwine the love of Autumn into your wedding without going crazy on the orange and red tones. Another great option for table settings is to have a plain table cloth and place setting, but bring a pop of colour onto the plates with a set of three orange linen pumpkin decorations. A fabulous set of ornaments that are affordable and truly magical. Decorate plates with these pumpkins as a splash of colour and enjoyment that your guests can be in awe of.
We also love these freestanding toadstool decorations by Heaven Sends. Whether you place these around the table to make your guests feel as if they are in a woodland, or you could make them into a centrepiece for the table, they are a lovely accent to upgrade your table decor.
To further decorate your wedding day, amongst images of the happy couple, you could include some Autumnal prints that will accentuate the comforting feel of your wedding.
This Hello Autumn framed print by Something Different is a simplistic yet beautiful wall decoration that can be further used in the home after your wedding day.
Celebrate your wedding day and the start of Autumn with this rustic framed print, include as a collage piece on your wedding day or simply have it as a statement piece on a plain canvas.
