So it’s officially autumn. Time to swap your flip-flops for boots, white wine for red, and pretty summer weddings for cosy autumn ones. We love an autumn wedding, especially one with handmade autumn wedding decorations.
You might be put off by the word ‘handmade’ but don’t be. There are so many beautiful ideas for handmade autumn wedding decorations, and they are all so easy to make. Not only will they enable you to create the exact wedding you want, but it is also generally cheaper than buying decorations.
Anything from simply collecting beautiful autumnal leaves and writing your guests’ names on them with metallic pen as place names, to dipping acorns in cold paint to use on top of your wedding cake. You could dip leaves in different coloured glitter and create a leaf garland, or perhaps make toffee apple wedding favours.
Just look around our hedgerows at this time of year to see the juicy blackberries. Together with nuts they make fantastic autumn wedding table centrepieces, and also double-up as your wedding guests’ edible treats!
The ideas really are endless for creating handmade autumn wedding decorations, and here are just some of those beautiful ideas.
