When it comes to dressing your bridesmaids, you have loads of beautiful options! Choose dresses in rich, warm colours like blackberry purple, deep red or chocolate brown. If you’d prefer to dress your girls in lighter colours, then neutral shades like cream or gold look stunning with an autumnal theme. If you’re getting married in mid- to late autumn, we’d recommend choosing dresses in heavier materials to stop your girls from catching a chill.

Beautiful autumnal wedding flowers are easy to create! Choose classic blooms like roses, gerberas and dahlias in reds, oranges and yellows, and complement with woodland touches like acorns and oak leaves. We also love seeing fruit and berries in autumn wedding bouquets – try blackberries, rosehips or crab apples for a rustic twist.
