Stunning Bridal Looks for Autumn Weddings

Autumn offers the opportunity for brides to create truly stunning and unique looks to reflect the colours of the season. Autumnal bridal bouquets can be rich and colourful, incorporating natural elements like leaves and berries, while bridal hairstyles can also include the beautiful flowers and produce of the season. These flowers will look beautiful with the white of a wedding dress, but autumn is a season that is ripe for uniqueness and experimentation and many brides may choose a non-traditional colour. Read on for fall wedding ideas and inspiration for bridal style for this special day.


Dressing for the occasion. White is, of course, traditional but ivory or cream is also a wonderful choice of dress shade for an autumn bride. Darker elements to reflect the bounty of the season could also be incorporate in a sash or ribbon additions – in shades such as purple or red – or the shoes could be a bold colour peeking from under a white dress. A less traditional bride may choose a dress in a shade such as peach, green or even red which would like beautiful for an autumn wedding theme. If it’s chilly, the bride could also wear a faux fur or sparkly bolero or shrug to add a glamorous element to her look.

Select bridesmaids dresses in the rich colours of the season, such as plum, burgundy, crimson or apricot. These will look stunning when paired with the white bridal dress and the bold colours of the autumn wedding bouquets. Tartan elements could be incorporated into the attire of the male member of the wedding party and button holes can include autumnal elements like thistles, berries, acorns and leaves.

Autumn bridal hairstyles. Flower crowns are very on-trend at the moment, but they don’t just have to feature at festivals or summer weddings. The months of September, October and November offer an abundance of flowers and other options for autumnal bridal flowers whether a subtle or more dramatic looks is desired. Add red, pink or white roses for a romantic look, or choose dahlias or chrysanthemums in bright autumn colours like orange and yellow. There are plenty of natural elements that can also be incorporated, such as oak leaves, ivy, twigs and even blackberries and red berries to create an abundant and colourful crown.

For a more subtle look, wind leaves (that could be spray painted gold) into a glamorous up-do, or incorporate autumnal bridal flowers into a hair style by fixing them to a head band or comb. Miniature roses, freesias or orange orchids would work very well for this look. A jewelled 1920s headband is another great option for autumn weddings – glamorous, elegant and truly beautiful.

Autumnal bridal flowers. The season offers so many choices for colour themes – from rusty reds to deep purples and bright yellows – and autumnal wedding bouquets are truly striking affairs. Any wedding florist in London can create the perfect look to suit the theme and style of the wedding, whether the look is bold or more subtle. Full flowers like roses, peonies and anemones can be paired with delicate baby’s breath and wildflowers, framed with the verdant autumn foliage on offer this season. Other elements like berries and leaves can also be incorporated to create unique looks to suit the bride’s style.
