When you think of autumn it conjures up images of falling leaves, crisp air and beautiful hues of orange, red and yellow. It marks a time where the old begins to make place for the new. A time for beginnings and warm scarves and boots.
It also marks one of the most breath-taking seasons to get married in. The colours in itself already create such a gorgeous backdrop for an outside ceremony.
A lot of venues have discounts this time of year because most brides race towards spring and summer weddings. Vendors tend to follow suit and usually cut their prices as well. All you have to do is phone and ask around for the best deals. It’s the perfect time to plan a wedding when you have a strict budget to adhere to. And by having your wedding in autumn you can perhaps even add a few little things you would’ve left out due to money during a summer a wedding.
A few other perks of getting married in autumn is that you won’t have to worry about sweating off your makeup. You’ll still look amazing after the ceremony. And your wedding dress won’t stick to you and there’s zero chance of you getting cranky due to the unbearable heat that the summer and sometimes even spring seasons can bring. Your guests won’t be complaining if you have an outdoor wedding because they won’t be frying in the summer sun.
The best part about a wedding during autumn is that you have free range when choosing a wedding dress. Sleeves or no sleeves. Lots of layers, or no layers. Short or long. It doesn’t matter because you’ll still be comfortable in whatever you choose. You won’t be worrying about your dress turning into a furnace when you dance or when you’re running around trying to get to all the guests.
