September has arrived and already you can feel the arrival of cool Autumn breezes. Fall is here, and you just have to look around all of the shop shelves newly stocked with chunky knit cardigans, comfy coats and leather boots to prove it. With the crisp air setting in and the trees turning beautiful shades of red and yellow, today we’re sharing some gorgeous Fall wedding inspiration for you, your bridesmaids, groom and guests.
Take your cue from nature when it comes to styling your wedding. Think of beautiful Autumn jewel colors from the world around you – ruby red, pumpkin orange, soft yellow and burnt umber – and combine with more neutral tones or metallics such as rose gold or copper for a beautiful effect. Decorate with rustic raffia, burlap and wood, or go for a softer, more relaxed look with delicate floral arrangements autumnal hues. A handful of rustic wildflowers tied with ribbon will look beautifully natural. If your venue has different color lighting options, choose soft amber shades to give your venue a lovely, warm feeling. Candles everywhere will also give that warm, romantic feeling!

Autumn comes packed with incredible ingredients, so why not design your menu around the season? Creamy pumpkin or butternut squash soup scattered with pumpkin seeds and served with homemade bread and seasonal vegetables, will be winning additions for your main course. And for your dessert table or sundae bar, offer warm fruit cobbler along with vanilla bean or pumpkin ice cream, which will surely be a hit. Hot apple cider or a hot chocolate with marshmallows will be a winning welcome drink when your guests come in from the chilly autumn air. For the bar, make your wedding signature drink a fall favorite and serve up a whisky hot toddy or spiced mulled wine.

Cute cover-ups for the bride and bridesmaids are a must-have, especially as the outside temperatures drop. A soft cashmere cardigan or long sleeve knit bolero, worn along with some signature jewelry will look beautiful over your gorgeous gown. If your venue has an outdoor terrace where guests are likely to go, ensure there are outdoor patio heaters available and place a box of blankets or pashminas for your guests to wrap themselves in.
