7 autumn wedding trends to swoon over this season

There's something undeniably chic about an autumn wedding. Low lighting, an abundance of warm colours and the flicker of candles combine to ensure it's a romantic affair. If you've chosen this season to say your "I dos", here are the top trends sure to make guests swoon this season.

Dreamy dresses

This season, Olivia Palermo becomes the ultimate style #inspo. Her iconic wedding day choice of a two piece tulle skirt with cashmere jumper offers brides the chance to bridge the gap between style and comfort. Long sleeves are favoured by brides for fall, while the addition of faux fur or feathers offers a stylish, yet practical finish, perfect for those outdoor photos. And should budget permit, opt for a second dress, perfect for dancing the night away in. Alternatively, look to a single dress, which offers a second look, thanks to the simple removal of sleeves or neckline.

Gothic influences

If you're a bride who loves a theme, look no further than gothic influences. Whether you want to go all out and fully embrace Halloween, or nod to the darkest of eras, your finishing touches will convey your theme. At Magpie Linens, our choice is always chic. Go all out with our black sequin tablecloths, paired perfectly with pops of white or orange to embrace the holiday's most popular hues. Alternatively, for a more subtle take on the trend, our monochrome striped satin cloths are a popular choice this season.

Dark and stormy

And the season's embrace of the dark side doesn't end there. Bridesmaids are getting the gothic treatment too, with colour palettes veering towards the dark side of purple - so dark its almost black. If you don't do things by halves, elevate the look by teaming with metallics for a touch of luxe that can do no wrong. Vamp it up with metallic accessories and accents in your bouquets to make the colour pop.

Sparkle, shimmer and shine

With the autumn season all about low lighting, sequins are the perfect way to add a touch of sparkle. Amp things up with romantic candlelight galore and watch as those sequins capture the light in your reception room. Unsurprisingly, this look is close to our hearts and with an array of styles when it comes to sequin tablecloths and runners, effortlessly bring your sparkly wedding day vision to life, thanks to Magpie Lines.

Naked cakes

When it comes to cakes, we know a thing or two. Our sequin table cloths are a popular choice to showcase your wedding cake and this season we've noticed a spark in the naked cake trend. Although cakes are laid bare, they're never boring! The key here is to dress them up in style. It's all about laser cut cake toppers, dramatic floral displays and fabulous fruit to elevate the look.

The sky's the limit

For your reception room, it's definitely a case of the bigger the better. Table centre pieces are reaching new heights, which works especially well for smaller reception rooms. If you're limited by space, build up to add drama. It's all about tall candles, OTT centrepieces and elaborate candelabras to add a unique twist. And of course, finish those tables off with sequin tablecloths and runners to bring your room to life.

Food to fall for

Eat, drink and be merry is the ethos of the season, with more and more couples turning their attention to their choice of food. Guests are given the wow factor with a variety of new culinary creations, with food and drink stations serving as a focal point in the reception room. Whether it's create your own cocktails or entire tables devoted to desserts, anything goes this season.
