June 2011 Those planning an Autumn wedding and looking for inspiration on style and themes, just need to take a look at some of the top names on luxury wedding website, 5starweddingdirectory.com
Vintage Lace and Long Sleeves
Sally Lacock’s vintage inspired wedding dresses have been in big demand since the Royal Wedding. Long sleeves have made a popular comeback and Autumn is the perfect time for brides to embrace this style. Sally says “Sleeves add an air of refinement, whilst colours such as rich creams, silvery greys and soft gold tones are also becoming more prevalent.” Sally Lacock’s Elsa style (above), an elegant 1930s inspired lace dress is offered in taupe, a beautiful soft autumnal colour.

Opulent Coloured Invites and Antique Styles
Katie Druett’s exclusively designed wedding stationary has seen couples choosing rich deep opulent colours such as purples and mauves for their Autumn weddings. Katie has also seen dark navy and sapphire blue being used a lot in a move away from the more traditional reds and oranges and browns of previous Autumns. In addition Katie says “A lot of couples are combining detailing such as lace or antique patterns such as damask prints into their stationery for autumn this year, while black and white continues to be a popular combination for late Autumn weddings with a classic theme.
Practical and Pretty Wedding Wellies
While Autumn can bring beautiful crisp temperatures, there is, as always, the risk of rain. Following endless enquiries from brides looking for plain willies to go with their wedding dress, Perdita’s Wedding Shoes has launched a new range of Pearl Wellington boots. These can be detailed with bespoke diamante words (at extra charge) such as Bride, Just Married or anything that might be required.
