Top Tips for Autumn Weddings from Todich Floral Design

Often more affordable and arguably more romantic than a traditional summer affair, autumn weddings offer the opportunity to really celebrate the colours and atmosphere of the season. The mists, afternoon light, vibrant flowers and trees are all wonderful inspiration for an autumn wedding theme. Incorporate natural elements like oak leaves into autumn wedding bouquets and use fairy lights, candles and sparklers to create a unique atmosphere. But remember the weather – the cold and potential rain means you have to be prepared to ensure it doesn’t ruin your special day.

Celebrate the outdoors. Although it can be chilly in the UK in October and November, and outdoor wedding in the beauty of nature can make an autumn wedding a truly memorable experience. Scatter autumn leaves down the aisle, and create an arch made of branches, berries and hydrangeas. Instead of confetti, get guests to throw vibrant autumn leaves or hold sparklers to make for fantastic photos ideal for autumn wedding design.

Think about using natural elements for autumn wedding decorations like branches, bark, moss, berries and pebbles. If the big day is outdoors then this will create a seamless look from the outdoor surroundigs to the décor of the day.

But remember the weather… Although it’s a beautiful time of year, it can get chilly so don’t forget to have pashminas on hand for the bride and bridesmaids, especially when photos are taking place. Lots of wedding event companies will provide this service for you – as well as umbrellas when needed! – which takes the stress out of the organisation. You might even need wellies on hand if the weather turns and a field, woodland or garden is the setting. Or, for a more stylish option for fall wedding ideas – cowboy boots are a fun alterantive to delicate shoes that may not withstand the autumn rain!

Outdoor heaters can also be a good bet to keep guests warm if the ceremony takes place outdoors. And fairylights and candles are not only perfect to create lighting as the day grows darker, but also make beautiful autumn wedding decorations.

Go with the season for your autumn floral design. There are lots of beautiful flowers and foliage this time of year to choose from for autumnal bridal bouquets and table decorations. There are some many rich colours to inspire floral design for an autumn wedding design – think deep red berries, orange leaves, golden sunlight and verdant evergreens.  An autumnal headdress could be the perfect addition to the occasion – just ask your wedding florist to find out what will work for you.

Table Arrangement


Don’t be afraid to add produce like pumpkins and berries to bouquets and centrepieces. And continuing the harvest theme – think sheaves of wheat, thistles, herbs like lavender and heather to add to bouquets and floral arrangements. Colourful autumn leaves can also be incorporated into autumnal bridal flowers to create unusual looks. The tone is rustic and very in keeping with the season. Your florist will be able to create the perfect autumnal bridal bouquets for your special day.
