Colours of autumn

With the arrival of autumn, there is a change in the range of colours offered to us by nature: we bid farewell to green and move on to ochre and orange tones. These colours inspire us to create a warm wedding from the very start.

Rustic and boho-chic are the best styles for these colours as they are closely related to forest elements, and you can play with colours as the seasons change.

The settings for the wedding day can vary from a country house or vineyard —as September is the month for grape-picking— to a mountain spot. The presence of trees means there will probably be a carpet of dry leaves, which will add a more romantic air to the event.

Other elements of the environment that you can use are woodland flowers both for the bridal bouquet and for decoration. Sunflowers, zinnias, chrysanthemums, Peruvian lilies, daisies and cotton are just some examples of seasonal flowers. You can also use cones from the Canarian pine trees, taking advantage of the fact that they will have fallen to the ground at this time of year.

Pumpkins may also add an attractive touch. One way to integrate them into your wedding without them becoming the main focus —due to their size or sheen— is in the form of jam as a gift for guests.

Invitations should be simple in clearly legible italics. You can extend the colour palette here and include cream, wine, mustard or maroon, amongst others, and leaves are usually drawn on them.

Naked cakes are highly appropriate for autumn weddings as they are easy to decorate with flowers or fruit in our range of colours. If you would like to add a more striking tone to the sponge, we recommend you order a Red Velvet.

Making the most of the short evenings, you can create a world of light for guests to enjoy. Whether using candles or light bulbs, what’s important is that your lights make the night a little warmer.

And, for those moments when the temperature begins to drop, you can provide infusions, mulled wine or apple and cinnamon cocktails. They’re sure to raise spirits and keep the party going.

Be embraced by autumn.
