Autumn Wedding

Autumn Wedding

Fall is a great time of year to have a wedding. The temperature is great, venues and photographers will be easier to book and the season offers a natural beauty that can only be created by our one and only Mother Nature.

 The venue

There are a lot of amazing place to do a beautiful wedding with the autumn theme.

One of the ideal venues is in a castle during the period of mid-September to late October. This castle is located in Blantyre in Lenox, Massachusetts.

This country property, comprised of a main house, a carriage house, and four cottages, feels like something straight out of the pages of a Jane Austen novel—all 22 guest bedrooms are uniquely decorated with cosy details like overstuffed chairs, fresh flowers, fireplaces, and four-post beds. It’s also a great place to do a hot-air balloon ride over the mountains. Hold a wedding on the property’s lawn, where the ivy along the side of the Main House turns a vivid scarlet during the fall.

  Wedding attire for the bride and groom

When choosing a wedding dress for the fall season, it is always essential to choose colours or styles that best incorporate the season. A dress that flows naturally or provides a great accent of golden tones; or a simple sash is the best way to go. Also colours such as purple, light pink, champagne and ivory are great compliments for a bride on her special day, which creates a feeling of warmth that is often associated with autumn.

Concerning the groom, he will wear a black suit with a white shirt and tie or off-white. In addition he will have an orange boutonniere.

Flower girls can carry furry hand muffs with coordinating ribbons that match the bride’s bouquet.

 Food and beverage

There are a lot of great menu for an autumn wedding. For our concept we have chosen this menu:

Moreover, it will have some side dish and cocktails like:

–          Caramel Apples

Treat guests to the quintessential fall indulgence — caramel apples.

–          Soy Candles

Soy candles in shades of burnt orange, yellow, or brown. It’s possible to double as place cards, or pack it into pretty boxes that match the colour palette.

–          Autumnal-Shaped Chocolates

Chocolate is always a favourite favour so consider chocolates in the shapes of maple leaves and acorns. It’s nice to display them in individual boxes at each place setting or on trays near the dessert table.

–          Mini Maple Syrup Bottles

Few things represent the fall season better than maple syrup. An idea is to give mini maple syrup bottles to the guests as a sweet thank-you.

–          Apple Cider Mix

Packets of apple cider mix are perfect for welcome baskets and reception favors alike.

–          Hunter’s Cocktail

–          Fresh Candied Pecans

–          Warm pecans coated in brown sugar can satisfied the guest.

About the wedding cake, it will be white with autumn flowers decorated on the cake.

  Floral decoration

In autumn there are  a lot of flowers like Acashia, Allium, Alstromeria, Amaranthus, Anemone, Baby’s Breath, Bittersweet, Carnation, China berry, Chrysanthemum, Cockscomb, Cosmos, Echinops, Freesia, Gerbera Daisy, Gladiolus, Hypericum, Iris, Juniper, Kangaroo paw, Kalancheo, Liatrus, Lily, Asiatic, Lily, Gloriosa, Misty Blue, Orchid, Pepper berry, Protea, Queen Ann’s Lace, Quince, Rover, Roses, Rowen berry, Salvia, Solidago, Statice, Star of Bethlehem, Sunflower, Yarrow, Zinnia.

That’s why we have a lot of opportunies for the floral decoration. For example, the Wedding centrepiece can be constituted by cymbidium orchids, nigella, scabiosa, artichokes, rosemary, croc fern, myrtle, bush ivy, and Japanese plum by Blossom and Branch.

Another possibility for the wedding centrepiece is constituted by heirloom pumpkins, poppy pods, scabiosa pods, lisianthuses, succulents, dusty miller, broomcorn, reindeer moss, and amaranthus by Love ‘n Fresh Flowers.

 Music and entertainment

About the music, it will have some famous song related to the autumn theme like :

–           Harvest Moon – Neil Young

–           Autumn Sweater – Yo La Tengo

–          September – Earth Wind & Fire-

–          Try to Remember – from The Fantastiks

–          Autumn Leaves – Frank Sinatra

Morever, a violonist will play some romantics songs!

Then, to encourage guests to dance, we will assign each table a love song, when the violonist plays that song that table should get up to dance. They will aslo try to caricaturist to do caricatures of their guests.

Transportation

For the transportation we have chosen  a 1955 Bentley S1 Wedding Limousine. It’s an original and romantic way of transport and it’s related with the epoque of the castle where takes place the wedding.
