If you’re after wedding styling tips for your autumn/winter celebration, these ideas from Get Knotted are sure to inspire you…
“That’s it, the summer is over and we are heading into the exciting autumn/winter wedding season. Here at Get Knotted, we are super excited for what’s to come, especially with the predicted sophisticated and empowering autumn/winter colours and styling trends. This season is sure to be one to remember.
This autumn/winter will see punchy red and burgundy tones, olive greens, interesting hues of blue and luscious golden yellows in all aspects. We’re looking forward to seeing flashes of strong colours including in floristry, styling details, lights, chairs and the increasingly popular coloured wedding dresses.
With this being the wedding season to go all out with colour, we have shared our top 5 wedding styling trends for autumn/winter 2019.
What isn’t to love about ceiling installations? From simple fairy lighting to going all out with flowers, hanging lights and masses of paper lanterns, opting to decorate your venue’s ceiling creates a magical atmosphere to enhance the overall look at your venue. Decorating the ceiling is a great way of maximising all of the space available and is the perfect way to envelope your guests within your styling story.
This autumn/winter will see lots of combinations of foliage and delicate lighting, offering a magical combination of texture and romance. A simple way to take an ordinary space from plain to spectacular. We love this look that combines twinkling fairy lights in drapes across the ceiling space with an abundance of greenery, leaves and foliage, finished off with the addition of hanging glass baubles filled with tea lights. Create a feature wall at the end of the room to tie the ceiling installation into the tables with a curtain of fairy lights.
Orange and burgundy
Orange and burgundy are stylish, rich and natural autumnal colours, and when combined they create an eclectic mix of elegant vibrancy that has the power to instil joy and fun to your wedding styling. You could add small vibrant hints of orange and burgundy, large explosive pops of colour or toned down hues of these rich autumnal shades.
We love to use different shades of individual colours for weddings, especially as matching specific colours for every detail can be difficult. Try teaming peachy orange and deep burgundy in table flowers with lighter accents for the smaller details, such as candles and napkins. To break up stronger details to reflect the autumnal season, add some hints of olive green and white, which will tie the details in perfectly.
Alternative table plans
The one wedding detail that your guests are sure not to miss is the table plan. Whatever your wedding style, this is the one decoration that will get your guests excited and talking, so make it really stand out from the traditional flat lay table plan. Your table plan is your opportunity to really show off your personalities, especially when you use them alongside your table name décor.
There are many alternative table plan ideas, and you can take a look at Pinterest or Instagram for a whole load of ideas. Our favourites have to be an old set of stepladders, wooden rustic crates, vintage suitcases, maps of the world pointing to all of the places you have visited, hobbies i.e. snowboards or bike helmets and unusual props, such as a metal flower ring all styled in a way that expresses who you are as a couple.
You will spend a lot of time and effort deciding on your wedding venue styling, and your choice of seating can make a big difference to the surroundings on your day. There are many different types of chair and ways to decorate them that you are sure to find one perfect for your wedding styling.
At Get Knotted, we have a deep affection for Ghost Chairs – see-through chairs with modern sophistication. They are perfect to ensure that little attention is taken from the main table and room styling, yet still have elegance and comfort. They have the power to echo your chosen styling with no effort at all.
Wreaths and circles
The trend for using decorative wreaths and circles has been around since last autumn/winter, but it is set to be even bigger this year. No matter how big or small, they make gorgeous focal features that can be reused for different uses during your wedding day, which also makes them cost-effective!
During the last year, we have seen a lot of large circles and wreaths used for wedding ceremony settings, small handheld versions for alternative bouquets and a copiousness of photo booth backdrops. Our favourites have to be ceiling ring wreaths complete with large flowers and foliage. Ceiling rings are extremely versatile and really transform your wedding venue space. Team them with some hanging lights to enhance the romance in the room.
