Autumn wedding trends to fall for

The days are shorter and there's a definite chill in the air, which means that autumn is well on its way. It may surprise you to learn that just as the seasons come and go, so too do the trends in the world of weddings. You'd be forgiven for thinking that every wedding is the same, but the fact of the matter is that from year to year, and season to season, different trends make an appearance. So if you're planning an autumnal wedding, here are some ways to add the finishing touches to your day.

A goulish affair 

One of the key dates in the autumn calendar is Halloween. If you think this theme is too garish to incorporate into your wedding day, think again. Here at Magpie Linens HQ, we like to keep things sophisticated. For our take on a Halloween theme, opt for black sequin tablecloths for a touch of luxe. Pops of orange and white will nod to the trend and you can go as simplistic or all out as you like. We don't do things by halves so say go for it! Finishing touches such as miniature pumpkins or light up accessories will help your theme flow effortlessly.

Go golden for autumn

Autumn's crisp colour palette offers welcomed hues of metallic tones. If gold, silver or bronze is your colour scheme of choice, look no further than our collection of sequin tablecloths and runners. Adored by brides worldwide and as seen in Brides, You & Your Wedding, Rock My Wedding and Bridal Musings, our collection offers an instantly luxurious touch to your wedding reception. Available in a wealth of colours and to hire or purchase, our range includes something for every taste. 

For brides getting married in autumn, our gold sequin runners and tablecloths, in particular, have been incredibly popular. Autumn's colourings are all about burnt oranges and crisp reds so go bold and combine your golden hues with a pop of colour. Or, if your personality lends itself better to a more classic approach, we love a neutral palette, with its beautiful beige tones offering a feeling of warmth and approachableness. It's easy to pull together, with pinches of gold throughout.

Let them eat cat

Autumnal foods boast a divine wealth of flavours, with the focus being on rich textures and flavours. When it comes to your wedding cake, a great way to give guests a taste of autumn is by providing cupcakes, as an alternative. That way you can mix and match fillings and frostings, focusing on autumn's seasonal flavours. Think carrot cake, apple and cinnamon or pumpkin mudslide! And of course, you can really make your display stand out with a sequin tablecloth.

Back to nature

With autumn being a subtle reminder of nature's beauty, it's only right that one of the season's hottest wedding trends is a focus on nature. Think simplistic, cream, brown and green tones, and finishing touches such as wooden laser cut name settings and beautiful hand-dried leaves. This is one theme that guests will definitely remember.

In bloom

Autumn's blooms are marvellous creations with the focus often being placed on big bouquets bursting full of colour, serving as a reminder of the wonders of the season. From jam jars filled with delicate posies, to statement centrepieces and delicately placed table settings, their use is limited only by the imagination.

Whatever theme you choose this autumn, we have no doubt that it will be beautiful!
