How to Keep Warm

Keep your bridesmaids warm by adding gorgeous pashminas to their outfits in rich autumnal colors such as aubergine, orange, and burgundy. You could either coordinate these to their dresses or have them in a contrasting vibrant shade. Chocolate is the perfect shade for sophisticated bridesmaids gowns; you could then assign each of your ‘maids with their own autumn color for their pashmina, shoes, and other accessories. For a little bridal glamour why not add a cropped fur jacket or stole to your wedding gown? Or if you want something a little more rustic, a cashmere or angora cardigan would also be a great choice.  Also essential to staying warm on your big day is having the right kind of wedding car: an open topped car is probably not the best option at this time of year in case there is a rain shower, or the wind creates mayhem with your perfectly styled hair. Instead opt for something that will protect you from the elements. A vintage car decorated with a vibrant orange ribbon would be the best fit for this wedding theme: choose beautiful cream cars for yourself, your groom and the rest of your wedding party. Make sure the wedding vehicles you’ve hired are adequately insured though, especially if you’re choosing vintage vehicles, as they aren’t always reliable and you don’t want the car you’re driving in to be breaking down on the way to the church!


Say it With Flowers

Although summer is the season most famed for the variety of its wedding flowers, there are still plenty of incredible options for flowers if you choose to have a rustic-style autumnal wedding. Fiddle fern has a wonderful rustic charm, and looks incredible teamed with rust and orange flowers. Alternatively you can opt for thistles for a natural feel or orange calla lilies if you want something very bright. Incorporate plenty of leaves and greenery to give the effect of bringing the outside in, and let nature be the driving force of your rustic autumnal wedding. It will look so effective, and will have people talking for months afterwards!

Wedding Favor Ideas

The incredible variety of options available for rustic fall wedding favors is almost endless. We love the idea of evergreen favors: write a personalized message to each guest and they can then plant the card and grow a beautiful tree to honor your special day. Alternatively, if you want something a little more colorful, why not try Iris flower bulbs which have a beautiful color and can be presented in either gift boxes or miniature burlap sacks. You can extend this favour into your theme, as burlap could be used to make napkin rings, be incorporated into your table centerpieces, and you could even use burlap table clothes if you want a really rustic-looking occasion. And don’t forget the power of herbs: they make amazing favors as well as adding wonderful fragrance to bouquets and floral displays.
