A Bonfire Night Wedding is a wonderful way to celebrate your special day with your guests. Whether you love the Autumnal time of year or bonfire night traditions, keep reading to find out how you can style a bonfire night wedding.

Toffee Apple Wedding Favours

One of the most prevalent traditions on bonfire night is of course, delicious toffee apples! You can easily incorporate these tasty delights into your bonfire night wedding. You could create a DIY Toffee Apple Bar and set up a table with bowls of toffee sauce, apples and some lollipop sticks. Alternatively, why not offer ready-made toffee apples as wedding favours? Put in each place setting with a name tag around the packaging or a cute ribbon. how to style a bonfire night wedding hellomay-com-au-the-loved-ones-com  Image Source - Photographer

Roasting Marshmallows

Marshmallows are a must-have at any bonfire night wedding. Offer as wedding favours to your guests so they can roast them later on in the evening at your very own wedding fire pit. You could also create a tempting Smores station next to the fire pit as an alternative to a dessert table.

Fire Pit Area

A fire pit will come in very useful at a bonfire night wedding. Whether you use it for roasting marshmallows or simply to keep your guests warm in the evening, they are a fab addition to an Autumn celebration. Plus, they make for some beautiful wedding photograph opportunities. how to style a bonfire night wedding Image Source - Photographer

Build A Bonfire

If you want to go bigger than a fire pit, have you ever considered having a bonfire? In keeping with the Guy Fawkes tradition, build a bonfire ready to be set alight as the wedding parties on into the night. When it comes to fire-related activities, it’s always best to double-check whether your venue can accommodate it. how to style a bonfire night wedding rockmywedding-co-uk-johnhopephotography-com Image Source - Photographer

Bonfire Night Wedding Games

Your bonfire night wedding needs to keep your guests entertained and it’s often when the couple have gone off to have their photographs taken that guests start to get a little bored. Make sure your friends and family are having fun by creating some indoor or outdoor games. Bobbing For Apples is a great addition, particularly for the kids. You’re guaranteed to have your guests laughing! how to style a bonfire night wedding ruffledblog-com-nessakphotography-com Image Source - Photographer

Wedding Sparklers

You’ll know from our previous post that we adore sparklers at weddings and it wouldn’t be a bonfire night wedding without them! They can be used by your guests at the ceremony, after the speeches or as a send off before you go on your honeymoon. how to style a bonfire night wedding weddingchicks-com-paperheartphotos-com Image Source - Photographer

Finish It With Fireworks

Go one step further with your very own bonfire night fireworks! Some wedding venues provide fireworks in their package, but if not it’s always worth discussing if they will allow a firework display in the evening. It’s the perfect way to end your special day and your guests will be seriously impressed. Plus, imagine the wedding photographs! how to style a bonfire night wedding stylemepretty-com-jessbarfield-com Image Source - Photographer shop-now  

10 Amazing Autumn Wedding Centrepieces 

Summer is nearly over, which means Autumn is just around the corner. I think Autumn is a beautiful time of the year to tie the knot. Golden leaves, earthy colour palettes and pumpkins are just the start of it! Take a look at our favourite Autumn wedding centrepieces… autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer

Autumn Wedding Centrepieces

A simple floral centrepiece is always going to look divine. If you want your Autumn wedding centrepieces to look chic yet feminine, this is the perfect choice. A metallic vase full of Autumnal flowers will add a splash of colour to your tables, especially if you’ve got a matching table runner. Burgundy red and soft peach shades mixed with greenery will evoke a seasonal feel to your reception. autumn wedding centrepiece - Image Source - Photographer Looking for something a little more dramatic? Use darker shades such as deep red, purple or navy  to create a vivid centrepiece with maximum impact! Tall candles in metallic candle holders will add to the drama, while creating a beautiful warm glow. These Autumn wedding centrepieces are perfect for a historic castle or medieval wedding venue! autumn wedding centrepieces - catmayerstudio.comjpg Image Source - Photographer Exposed wooden tables look wonderful at Autumn weddings, especially if you’re planning a rustic affair. If you’ve opted for a similar table style, you won’t need anything too much in terms of centrepieces. Compliment your tables with simple vases with a few Autumnal blooms – a few sprigs of foliage with a dahlia or two is all you need. Your wedding florist will be able to guide you in the right direction. If you’ve got long banquet tables, you could line foliage along the centre for some extra greenery. Add a few red or brown flowers for a pop of seasonal colour. autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer As you know, we are huge fan of using tree slices at The Wedding of my Dreams, so we just had to include them in our Autumn wedding centrepieces! A wooden tree slice is perfect for an Autumn wedding as it gives a nod towards the earthy, organic and rustic feel of the season. Decorate the tree slices with your table numbers, a few jam jars full of flowers and a couple of tea-lights. Simple, yet seriously effective! autumn wedding centrepieces Image Source - Photographer Planning a glittering Autumn wedding full of glamour? Brides and grooms often think glitter needs to be saved for the festive season, but we love the thought of using bronze, copper and gold accents throughout an Autumn wedding. Tall golden candelabra will look truly magnificent as part of your wedding table centrepieces. Opt for floral shades that compliment gold, such as luxurious red or forest green. Alternatively, use tall scented candles that evoke beautiful Autumnal fragrances! autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer There are two colours that are simply made for this season. Bright reds and pumpkin orange are the perfect colour palette for your Autumn affair, so why not use them as the main shades for your Autumn wedding centrepieces? autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer Pumpkins are a must-have when it comes to Autumn wedding centrepieces – particularly if you’re planning a Halloween theme! Nestle small pumpkins, squash and gourds in greenery and foliage along long trestle tables. If you’ve opted for round tables, create a circular centrepiece using a tree slice, greenery and a pumpkin. You could even use the pumpkins as your wedding table numbers! autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer Want to include pumpkins in your table centrepieces, but love the idea of pastels? Fear not, you don’t have to stick to a traditional Autumn colour scheme. If you love pale pink, lilac and mint then you can easily incorporate it into your reception tables. Opt for a white pumpkin, and fill it with pretty blooms that match your colour palette. This is such a pretty, alternative idea. autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer Lanterns are a really lovely way of creating a warm welcoming atmosphere for your guests and they’re perfect for Autumn. You can use them on their own as table centrepieces, but they also look fab with jars of flowers and a wooden tree slice. If you’re planning an outdoor celebration, then this is a wonderful option for your reception tables! autumn wedding centrepieces - Image Source - Photographer I love the idea of incorporating nature into your Autumn wedding centrepieces. Burnt orange leaves, berries and pumpkins provide the perfect ingredients for a woodland style wedding table.
