Autumn Wedding Ideas for your Country House Wedding
If you’re dreaming of rich hues, fallen leaves, toffee apples and hints of gold, an autumn wedding is just for you. Now it’s time to think about turning those dreams in to reality with these inspirational autumn wedding ideas.
Setting the Scene
While there’s no need for a specific ‘theme’ it is a good idea to choose a colour palette for your wedding day. Morden Hall lends itself perfectly to many colours, whether you plan to introduce the rich jewel tones of autumn or incorporate a few brighter hues from vibrant orange to shades of pink. Consider the Mulberry Suite a blank canvas for your wedding breakfast, its neutral tones offering a perfect backdrop to your chosen colours.
Whatever time of year you plan to marry, you should always wear a dress that makes you feel fabulous. If planning an autumn wedding, consider a gown with pretty beading or detail that will look beautiful under candlelight. It’s also a good idea to consider a wrap or sleeve – after all, on an autumn day you may well be able to enjoy welcome drinks in the beautiful gardens.
All About Flowers
Seasonal flowers are a wise choice and, in the autumn, there is much to choose from. Bring the outside in with fabulous blooms and foliage, echoing the beauty of the gardens and parkland beyond with burnt oranges, bright yellows and deep reds. Adding fairy lights and candles are a great way of introducing warmth and golden tones to your arrangements and décor.
Time to Dine
With exceptional food and drink at the heart of every Morden Hall wedding, our on-site caterers are on hand to create your perfect menu. Speak to the events team about creating an exquisite autumn menu, from tantalising canapés to autumnal cocktails.
In the Detail
Embrace the season through every detail, from your stationery through to favours and table linen. Edible treats always make fun favours. How about toffee apples, homemade honey, s’mores or popcorn? Alternatively, your guests will love pretty bags filled with mulled wine spices.
Stationery also enables you to convey your autumnal theme. Introduce the day with your invitations before moving on to style table plans and individual place names.
Cake, Glorious Cake
One of the finest wedding traditions, your wedding cake gives you the perfect opportunity to sing your autumn style from the rooftops! You might choose an elegantly stacked cake iced in your chosen colours. Alternatively, the naked or semi-naked cake is a dreamy choice for autumn, adorned with berries and blooms of the season. And, of course, what’s not to love about chocolate. In cooler months it’s always a favourite!
