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.

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. Delicious!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!

Opulent Berry

Berry and blackcurrant shades go hand in hand with Autumn, so they’re a wonderful choice of colour for your place settings. Opulent reds are luxurious and rich, yet warm and cosy – it’s the perfect combination. Plush raspberry napkins tied with velvet ribbon will look stunning against the contrast of a white plate – it’ll look modern, yet decadent. Gold accents throughout your place settings will add to the glamour – we’re talking magnificent gold vases brimming with red garden roses, and gilded goblets full of red wine. Your wedding guests will be transported to a gorgeous Autumn paradise as soon as they sit in their seats!

Modern Metallic

Bronze and copper have become an increasingly popular choice for weddings in 2016, and it doesn’t stop at Autumn! They a perfect choice for Autumn weddings as they reflect the brown and orange leaves and warm, crackling fires – with a modern touch! Copper calligraphy place names will look wonderful at each place setting and bronze cutlery means your guests can eat their meal in style!

Lilac Grey

If you’re not a huge fan of the typical Autumnal colour palettes, have you ever considered using lilac grey as your colour scheme? This gorgeous shade is the perfect alternative to berry and golden tones and it’s made for a girly girl. Lilac grey looks wonderful against earthy, wooden elements which is why it works wonderfully for Autumn place settings. Tie your cutlery with dusty lilac ribbon for a delicate pretty style. A stem of dried lavender will not only look lovely, it’ll smell divine! Display your wedding breakfast menu on each plate – maybe include a few Autumnal favourites such as pumpkin soup.

Glamorous Gold

Gold shades can be used throughout the wedding season, but I think it’s particularly perfect for an Autumn celebration. If you’re having a glamorous gold affair, you can create some seriously beautiful place settings. Gilded cutlery with golden lined plates will add just a dash of luxe. Ivory napkins wrapped with golden ribbon and a sprig of Autumnal foliage will finish the look beautifully. Line your tables with green and orange pumpkins for an extra nod towards the season.

Autumn Wedding Ideas: Berry Red and Luxurious Navy

There are so many rich, warm and vibrant colour palettes that go hand in hand with an Autumn wedding. My particular favourite colour combinations include red and navy, with subtle accents of gold for a touch of opulence. Find out how to create a berry red and luxurious navy colour scheme that is simply perfect for a romantic Autumn wedding.

Berry Red and Navy Wedding Colour Scheme – Autumn Wedding Ideas

Autumn Wedding

Let’s look at the most important outfit of the day: the bride. Autumnal make-up is a fab way to kick off this gorgeous season: golden shimmering eyeshadow and berry lipstick will look beautiful. Accessorise with golden jewellery and hair accessories – a gilded hair vine is a divine addition that will reflect the opulence of this theme. Gorgeous wine-red heels or navy pumps are a must-have when it comes to wedding shoes! They’ll be discreetly hidden under your dress, but the occasional flash of colour will add a special touch to your bridal outfit. A navy suit will look super smart for your groom. Finish the look off with a burgundy tie and brown shoes.

I think that bridesmaids dressed in navy gowns looks seriously elegant, and small garnet red bouquets will compliment this style beautiful. You could mix and match red and navy heels between your maids – or even add a dash of glamour with golden sparkly heels!

Your wedding cake can be as elaborate or as simple as you want it to be, it’s completely down to your personal wedding style. Seeing as this theme is all about Autumnal luxury, I think your berry red and navy wedding cake should have a certain magnificence about it. A 3-tier cake with deep navy icing will look striking adorned with huge cranberry red blooms. Finish it off with a golden ‘Mr and Mrs’ cake topper for extra extravagance.

Kick-start your Autumn wedding theme with your stationery. As soon as you send out your save the dates and invitations, your guests will be intrigued about your theme. Plush red or navy invitations will look wonderful with golden font. Alternatively, opt for simple white invitations with a mixture of red and navy detailing or illustrations.

One of the easiest ways to reflect your theme at your wedding venue is by decorating the reception tables. Add some colour to each table by filling golden vases with gorgeous ruby red flowers. Add navy accents throughout your table by using midnight blue napkins and adding a few navy candles to each table centrepiece. One of the easiest ways to reflect your theme is by adding berry red or navy table runners – they’ll look especially delightful against rustic wooden tables, and they will fit in with Autumn perfectly.

You can go down any route with a berry red and navy wedding theme – especially in Autumn. If you want something a little more rustic, simply add a few more wooden elements throughout your day. Dreaming of a glamorous Autumn wedding? Then focus on adding gold to your main colours, and it’ll effortlessly add glitz and opulence to your big day.

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.

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!

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.

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!

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!

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?

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!

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.

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!

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. Burn tall brown candles amongst handfuls of greenery and leaves – your wedding table will look enchanting!
