It’s Never Too Early to Start Planning Your Autumn Wedding

Although we are in the thick of summer, autumn is really only a blink of an eye away.

Your autumn wedding is only a few months away, are you ready? If not, then don’t panic! The Old Rectory Wedding Venue in Essex is only a phone call away and we have some great quick tips to make sure your wedding goes without a hitch.
Don’t Forget the Weather

Although we know you are well aware of the weather in autumn, its sometimes easy to forget this when planning your wedding. With flowers, white dresses, bridesmaids and outdoor entertainment the usual elements to cover, please don’t forget that when the British weather blows, it can be cold, wet and icy.

Keep your bridesmaids warm with shawls, throws and blankets for guests if you are planning to be outdoors at any point in your wedding ceremony or reception. Just because its cold outside doesn’t mean that you have to stay inside!

Bridal Guide also love the idea of an outdoor wedding with “a beautiful natural ceremony setting, filled with colourful leaves” being in the top 100 autumn wedding ideas.
Rustic Colour Schemes

Forget your summer pastels, bright vibrant oranges and bring back rustic burgundy, reds and warm yellows to really bring autumn in with style. Berry tones are a massive hit with weddings this year and there is no exception to the rule when it comes to weddings in Essex.

The Old Rectory love to accommodate all of our guests’ requirements and autumn flowers and colour schemes is something we are exceptional at planning. With the rolling hills of Essex in the backdrop and stunning photography opportunities on every corner, there is nothing that will not blow you away with our venue.

Rock My Wedding recently stated that the berry tone is perfect when styled with any palette of colours, so what are you waiting for?
Forget Me Not’s

Weddings are all about the minor details that really make your dream day special. With the weather being less reliable, have a basket of emergency umbrellas on hand, trust us your guests will be grateful! Other details include:

Have indoor shelter options should the heavens open
Have a backup plan for shoes if your wedding is on grass
Flip flops if your guests’ shoes are uncomfortable
Stay warm with a basket of blankets
Bring nature into your wedding with wooden features, natural foliage and more
Hair brushes in the toilets so that your guests can fix their hair after the wind
