Autumn Wedding Moodboard – A Request

Hi all,

As promised, here is the moodboard for a Autumn/Fall wedding, including a dress for a more mature bride as requested by Jill πŸ™‚ Hope you like πŸ™‚

bride's flowers

Gorgeous bright Autumn colours here. Perfect for the Bride πŸ™‚


The leaf and orange/reds are carried on into the Bride’s hair piece. Whilst veils are lovely, on an Autumn day, you don’t want it flying in your face, especially if your wedding is taking place outside πŸ™‚


Brown smokey eyes and pink-blush lips. Gorgeous Autumn make up.

On to the dresses. Jill was right, there are way too many “frumpy” or “matronly” dresses for the older brides out there. Who says a woman over 30/40 cannot be sexy, feminine and gorgeous?

bride 1

I love this fit and flare. Lovely waist detailing and love the sweetheart neckline with bateau lace πŸ™‚

bride 2

For a more sheath-like dress, I love this piece. Gorgeous lace overlay, sweetheart neckline and cap sleeves.

Because of the multitude of colours in the Autumn colour scheme, I have suggested two colour of dresses for the bridesmaids. Either to be alternated between the bridesmaids, or one colour can be picked over the other.

dress 1

I love the neckline and colour of this dress but would probably go for the same length as the burnt orange dress below.

dress 2

Again, this dress has the same neckline as the green dress but just that much shorter πŸ™‚


Now my favourite part, the cake πŸ™‚ I adore the lace detail, tying in with both the dresses, the draping and the pearl border. The colours of the flower and leaves could be a tad brighter to go with the bouquet but it’s still a gorgeous cake.


For a simple, bright and effective centrepiece, I love this one. The similar colours running throughout the wedding.


The grooomsmen once again can alternate between green and orange or pick one throughout. I really like the interesting boutonniere in this picture πŸ™‚

Guest book

For an interesting and very pretty guestbook, get your guests to place a thumbprint “leaf” on your wedding tree and then hang the finished product in your house πŸ™‚

Hot cider bar

Hot apple cider makes a warming change to a cocktail hour.


AΒ similar tree to the guestbook ties in the invites.

name places

Cute mini pumpkin name placecards.

toffee apple bar

Toffee apple dessert table. Yummy!


So that’s my moodboard. Hope you guys like it πŸ™‚

If you’d like to see any other theme, I honestly don’t care how “out there” you think it is, let me know and I’ll do my best πŸ™‚

Cheers for now,

      Well that’s definitely a good response lol πŸ™‚ I love Autumn as well. It’s so much fun to walk through the forest near me in big wellie boots and just crunch through the leaves πŸ™‚
