It seems Autumn is officially here - chilly winds, crunchy fallen leaves, and cold noses are the norm now. When I think of weddings now I think cosy, warm colours; of cosseting yourself and your guests in a hearty pumpkin soup of a wedding!
With these lower temperatures, covering up can be a good option - long lace sleeves can look so chic don't you think? The wedding gown range available is vast and here at The Wedding Room we are a great place to start browsing in our welcoming boutique.

So what about having your venue styling in shades of brown, red, or orange to complement your cool ivory dress? I love these funky DIY arrangement to set off a hall entrance or even as a table centrepiece. Add a few pine cones too and the drama of the Autumn appears magically.
Instinct might lead you to the classic Autumnal spectrum of colours. The floristry options are endless though thinking in seasonal flowers does help with the cost and quality available for your florist on the wedding day. Alternatively try praying paper flowers or succulents in gold shades can also look great in bouquets. Plenty of ideas are available for anyone who can turn their hands to all things crafty.
Alternatively at the other end of the spectrum, crisp mornings make me think of all things sparkling - classic drop earrings like those showcased by the beautiful Swarovski designers. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they have some pretty wedding designs for clip on earrings. Also using crystal globe centrepieces are a great look to complement warmer shades.
Glamorous goldy bronze colours really suit the autumn theme; I loved these shoes and clutch bag for a classic grown up look. Do these ideas inspire you to plan an autumn wedding day?
Add a little more drama with this Nicole Farhi leaf necklace which would work brilliantly with an understated strapless dress.
So if your style is more rustic because you are a DIY diva favouring all things crafty or whether you are influenced by the sparkle of those first frosts at this time of year, we hope you embrace the change of season!
Back in the Autumn of 2010 I also looked at Autumn inspiration, you can see the Nobility blog post here!
