As autumn weddings come around we see a change in the style and colour of invitations customers are purchasing. Stationery in cute pastels and summer brights tend to be very ‘last season’, and autumn wedding stationery designs in calm, sophisticated, earthy tones become more popular.
I love autumn and all the associated colours; it sets a beautiful backdrop and offers a great foundation for planning an autumn themed wedding. Colours such as burnt orange, olive green, berry red, conker brown, ochre, rich plum and russet will really set the mood of your wedding and shout ‘autumn’.
Save the date cards and wedding invitations are often the first snippet your guests will get of your special day, so choose carefully. You might want to consider choosing stationery that incorporates an autumn design or autumn colours to reflect the time of year you are getting married.
Autumn Styling Touches
Once you have decided on the style of your autumn wedding stationery you can start thinking about all the other things you will need. I have put together this mood board to give you some inspiration on colours and items that will help bring your autumn theme to life.
As you can see, the mood board focuses around five key colours; plum, teal, burnt orange, ochre and mocha. I have looked for items that incorporate the colours as well as autumn themed accessories like the ‘pinecone name holders’ from Stampington and Company. I love how the orange tip detail gives them that added bit of colour. The chair hangers from Walnut Hollow also have an autumnal feel. Made from slices of wood and rustic string, they fit with the woodland element of this theme perfectly.
You can also use on the day stationery to decorate your venue. When choosing your autumn wedding invitation look out for matching items like order of service, table plans, table numbers, place cards, wedding signs, favours, table confetti, bunting… they will all make great finishing touches to your wedding day.
