Monday Mood Board: Bring The Outside In This Autumn
Hello fellow readers. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend filled with laughs and joy. Can you believe that October is now upon us? Of course, to celebrate the start of a new month, we had to fill it with even more Autumnal goodness.
So, if you’re planning your pretty Autumnal wedding, look no further than The Wedding Affair‘s ‘Monday Mood Board‘ feature for this week’s dose of rustic loveliness, featuring twinkling festoon lights, sensational styling and well, all things autumnal!
A Change of Season & Styling
This season it’s all about woodland motifs, green garlands, jewel tones and magnificent lighting. Leaves crunching underfoot, the undeniable beauty of the Autumn season creates a natural serenity to your wedding backdrop. Embrace the changing scenery around you and introduce the wonders of the wild into your wedding style.
Embrace the chill with hanging festoon lights, warm candle light, a combination of rustic accents and pops of colour to add atmosphere. Bring the outdoors in with wooden tables and cross-back chairs, trailing greenery and scents that remind you of lush ever-greens and autumnal smells.

Food Lovers, Rejoice!
Autumn weddings, oh don’t they just conjure up some delicious ideas for food and drink?!
From indulgent cheese boards to cookie bars, s’mores and sticky toffee pudding, there’s plenty to get your own and your guests taste-buds tingling.
A cheese station stocked with a cheese to suit every taste, as well as crackers, chutneys, grapes and garnishes galore, your wedding cheese board won’t just taste great, it’ll look it too! A selection of ciders, mulled drinks and hot chocolates will be the perfect option to keep guests’ thirst quenched and happy all night long.

It’s in the Detail
If you’re getting married in the autumn, chances are you’ll want a wedding cake to match it. But what exactly makes a wedding cake ‘autumnal’? Saturated colours, like burgundy, gold or burnt oranges, look great paired with natural influences like fresh flowers and foliage, ripe plums and figs bursting open with juicy colour.
Autumn is a season of warm tones and plentiful harvests, so let your cake be indulgently decorated to match and become a focal point of your styling!
Snug areas, hay bales and a bridal bouquet in fiery hues are even more details that can tie together your rustic and autumnal theme. What do you think, loves?
