There was a time when wedding season was almost strictly reserved for the summer months. The warmth of the sunshine putting emphasis on the joyousness of the occasion.
But what of the remaining 9 months of the year?
Well as it turns out, the Autumnal underdog is a wedding gem that is hidden just below the leaves, WAITING to be discovered.
There are many reasons why you might consider the seasonal runner-up for your wedding. And in case you hadn’t contemplated them yet… we have listed some of the main ones below.
#1 – Autumn is a photographers dream! Contrary to popular belief, the sunniest of days can actually cause all kinds of problems for capturing the best shots.
But the spectrum of Autumn colours, which range from Magenta to Orange, offer a breath taking backdrop for your wedding images.
#2 – Berries, Berries, Berries. The colour just keeps coming! Autumn berry cakes look and taste incredibly sumptuous.
And if you’re a gin lover you might even consider a gin based bar theme, with homemade blackberry and sloe gins to delight your guests with.
#3 – Autumn table arrangements can be made up of anything from pumpkins to pinecones, to leaves.
Pumpkins can be used as a colourful replacement for vases and topped off with a candlelit surrounding you can produce a seriously romantic alternative to the traditional table display.
#4 – A season famed for arguably the most enchanting of occasions. Your autumn wedding might include some Halloween based games and entertainment for both kids and adults.
Apple bobbing, pumpkin bowling or golf, a photo BOO-th and some atmospheric musical entertainment.
#5 – It is no secret that Summer is considered to be “high season” where weddings are concerned.
So when budget is a priority in wedding planning, Autumn should come up trumps in consideration.
Outside of high season there are deals to be struck in everything from venue to entertainment.
More options and less restrictions will also help take some of the pressures out of the planning stage so that you can get back to looking forward to your big day.
