There is something special about every season. Autumn, by far, is the season that gives us the most warmth even with the chilliest of weather!
With bitter cold yet blue skies above, it all calls for those cosy nights in with your favourite hot drink…
Autumn has inspired us here at Emma Louise Bridal, so we wanted to share some seasonal inspiration for your wedding!
Autumn is a picturesque season, the falling leaves create a blanket of colour; a perfect background for capturing those special wedding moments in a picture…
Use a flower bouquet to flatter your make-up and your wedding theme! A classical autumn bouquet consists of those beautiful warm tones of burgundy’s, reds and oranges…
Don’t be afraid to use purples, blues and yellows; they can give a lovely pop of colour to focus the attention onto you!
If you want your food to fit in with your theme, use some cute little nibbles or treats to your advantage! Whatever colour theme you’re going for doughnuts can easily match it, with all the different flavours and colours that they can come in!
If you want to feel Autumn to its fullest maybe go with some toffee apples? Perfect if you want to include a hint of nostalgia to your wedding day.
Whether it be rustic, simple or a colour of the autumn leaves, Autumn is also the perfect season to switch up your cake!
A way to save a little money is that you can decorate tables and venues with pinecones and mini pumpkins! A gorgeous way to incorporate this cosy season into your decorations.
‘…And full-grown lambs loud bleat from hilly bourn;
Hedge-crickets sing; and now with treble soft
The red-breast whistles from a garden-croft;
And gathering swallows twitter in the skies.”
‘To Autumn’,a famous Poem by John Keats that perfectly conveys how the autumn season is fleeting but never forgotten because of its beauty.
In many ways a wedding is similar; a fleeting time in a persons life but the beauty of that day and the love that is celebrated is never forgotten.
Whether big or small, make your wedding one to be remembered!

If you caught our previous blog about covid, then you’ll know Micro Weddings are a hot topic of discussion right now! The wedding industry has seen a recent trend in downsizing – obviously now spurred on by the covid pandemic.
However, this doesn’t mean any aspect of your wedding needs to be sacrificed – think of the old saying “small but perfectly formed” and you’re on the right lines for a Micro Wedding.
From intimate guest lists to avoiding awkward seating plans; in this blog we’ll talk about the big advantages to this latest wedding movement.
Firstly, and most importantly, a micro-wedding is an opportunity to focus on the details. All the fine things and none of the fuss. Think how amazing it would be to give each of your guests a personalised wedding favour that they’ll keep forever, so much better than sugared almonds!
Or instead of a buffet that you didn’t choose how about a sit down tasting menu with accompanying wines.
Another bonus to Micro Weddings is family dynamics – or shall we say being able to avoid them!
You don’t need to worry about external influence, this day is about you two and what you want together, you could completely avoid any obligations over bridesmaids you ‘must have’.
Remember this day is about you and your partner getting married and celebrating your love – keeping it small lets you really put this in the spotlight.
Small, intimate, beautiful and the best excuse to spend quality time catching up and celebrating with those who mean the most to you.
We’re also hearing more and more of wedding venues offering ‘Covid Packages’ – a wedding that is purpose built with covid and government guidelines in mind. This could literally takes the stress and worry out of your hands, leaving you to enjoy the day and most of all be excited about tying the knot!
A Micro Wedding means a short wait to saying ‘I Do’! With so much less to plan, they can be organised much more quickly and easily. In essence a Micro Wedding is all about quality, intimacy and maybe even a little luxury. It’s not about going without, it’s about getting exactly what you want! If opting for a shorter time frame why not take advantage of our Sample Sale Gowns? When it comes to getting what you want from your dream dress we are here to help…
