Planning An Autumn Wedding

Keep Your Guests Happy In Changeable Weather

Details to consider when planning an autumn wedding. Think about the importance of dry footpaths and keeping your guests warm by heating a marquee.

Autumn is a stunning season to get married in. The orange and red colours on the trees make for gorgeous photos. However, it is also a time of changeable weather, so the bride and groom need to think about extra details to ensure that their guests are happy and their big day is a success, whatever the weather.

Keeping The Wedding Party Warm

There is a lot of standing around and waiting on a wedding day, so make sure that the bride and her bridesmaids are kitted out with pashminas or a faux fur shrug to take the edge off the chill. A basket full of blankets to keep laps covered later in the evening would also be a welcomed detail as are heaters in outdoor areas where your guests are likely to congregate.

Staying Clean and Dry

When the ground is slightly damp underfoot and is getting a lot of extra foot traffic from all of your wedding guests, it’s possible for ladies heels to sink into soft ground. Heel sink stoppers are a handy gadget that prevent stilettos from sinking into the lawn during a champagne reception. It is also a great idea to install temporary walkways to keep footpaths dry and stop dirt from ruining the guests’ shoes and of course the outfit of the day – the bride’s white wedding dress!


It’s a popular and economical idea to hold a wedding reception in a marquee, but it can be a challenge to keep a wedding tent cool in the day when the sun is shining and warm in the evening once the temperature has dropped dramatically. Most marquee companies will be able to provide a generator with a heating system that has enough fuel to last for up to 12 hours, or longer if you purchase additional fuel.

There may be a lot of extra details to consider when planning an autumn wedding, but don’t be put off because they’re worth every bit of effort.
