Mood Montage: Autumn Leaves

                                           [Click Image to Enlarge]

Rich, warm colours echoing the essence of Autumn make up this inviting montage. What better way to celebrate an October/November wedding by bringing influence from outdoors, indoors. Imagine crisp, fresh mornings with bright blue skies and not a cloud in sight. I'm bringing in golds, deep burnt oranges, browns and deep greens for this one...

The Dress: I love this strapless ankle length tulle dress with a deep green velvet sash. It's simple and understated and the perfect dress to accessorize with a stunning pair of shoes and a lace bolero to keep the chill off your shoulders.
Bring in some glitz and glamour with this stunning embellished cocktail dress by Karen Millen for your bridesmaids with a black sash which mirrors that of the bride's.

Flowers and Decor: Draw from rich colours of fallen leaves with flowers to match. This arrangement of orchids, gloriosa lilies, amarylis and roses is filled out with artichoke, radicchio leaves, swiss chard and deep purple plums. Fill tall vases full of deep red apples or use mini squashes as place name holders and pumpkins as lanterns. 

Stationery: Introduce this colour scheme into your stationery with silver or gold calligraphy written onto deep brown paper. This striking papercut art picture would make a wonderful cover for your invitations, setting the tone for a warm and cosy Autumnal wedding.
