Styling your Wedding Dress for an Autumn Wedding

Get inspired by rust, burgundy & green tones. Enjoy a warm & romantic wedding with these autumnal colour schemes. Discover your perfect dress & all the accessories to go with it!

Rust Tones

Think rusts, burnt oranges and golds. Rich, warm and inviting tones that complement our off-white silk designs. This mood board takes inspiration from Kado Studio’s gorgeous bouquets.  If you can’t get enough of sheer layering and a soft romantic feel – rust tones are for you.

Thai dress: lightweight sleeves

A classic wedding dress design straight from our Amaryllis collection. It’s formed of two pieces – a stunning silk satin slip with a silk chiffon overlay. Enjoy the layered effect’s light coverage – the perfect style for your autumn wedding dress. No more heavy sleeves.

Pleated block heels

Now, let’s talk about those Loeffler Randall pleated block heels. The warm terracotta shade is divine. Match the falling leaves and keep to the autumn style!

Don’t forget scent

Finding a new scent is exciting – something you can wear in the future and think about your special day.

You’ll find Le Labo fragrances a short walk away from our Islington Showroom (located on Cross Street). All their scents are a dream to wear, but you’ll particularly love Mousse De Chene for a true autumn vibe. Feel relaxed and at ease with notes of patchouli, cinnamon and pink pepper.

Jewellery is key

Gold accents are perfect for complementing rust tones and elevating our silk designs. Opt for earrings with a unique shape, like the Selva Oscura Hoops from Alighieri. Showcase your personality and bring your autumn theme to life – right down to the last detail.

Burgundy Tones

If rust tones aren’t your vibe, look to rich burgundies, deep reds and purples. The contrast against our silks creates a dramatic and bold colour palette. Our mood board draws inspiration from our stunning bride Fiona and the florals by Gloam. Take your autumn-style wedding dress to the next level!

Introducing our Madison dress

Discover our Madison Dress from our Amaryllis Collection. Make a statement with the structured boned bodice. Radiate confidence with the corset seam detail and pretty flutter sleeves. Enjoy the comfort of the natural matte silk skirt. Madison has a lovely weight to it and is perfect for an autumn-style dress – both beautiful and practical!

Choose velvet shoes

Pair Madison with some gorgeous velvet shoes. The luxe fabric adds another dimension to our designs. The Hetty Bordo by Harriet Wilde is a real statement block heel with velvet ties. Create a bow for added drama!

Satin rope bag

Keep hold of your essentials with a new satin rope bag – we recommend the Champagne Hive bag from D.A.Y Boutique. The crossbody style is an excellent addition to your autumnal bridal look. Your bridesmaids will also look the part whilst looking after it!

Gold necklace: the finishing touch

Choose Baroque Pearl from Monica Vinader and transform the look of your dress and highlight Madison’s gorgeous open neckline. Wear it for the whole day, or pop it on for the party!

Green Tones

Autumn is a wonderful time to be around nature. Get inspired by the changing colours at this time of year. Green is a colour that works all year round, but for an autumn style, look to darker greens with lots of depth. Enhance your surroundings and your wedding dress!

Discover our Honey dress

We love this silk Dupion fabric that makes up our Honey dress from our Amaryllis collection. Enjoy the papery texture and playful elements – such as pleating and pockets. Pair the delicate pearly sheen with olive green shades.

Go sleeveless

An autumn wedding doesn’t mean sleeves are a must. If your wedding’s inside, chances are it’s going to be warmed with cosy fires (and you’ll be aglow with the excitement of your day!).

Get a matching hair bow

Make a statement with our silk hair bows – made using offcuts from our silk dresses. The perfect way to utilise your wedding dress’s fabric and get a matching bow. Or add it to the back of your dress for an added element of fun! Works great with the modern, minimal style of autumn.

Pearls are a bride’s best friend

Pair Honey’s subtle sheen with pearls. Whether we’re talking a necklace, bracelet or these gorgeous ceramic and pearl earrings! Discover your perfect pearls at Completed Works.

To wrap up, our final piece of advice is to not be afraid of colour. Opt for muted shades if that feels more you, but autumn is a wonderful time of year to embrace the changes in nature. Connect with these changing colours and incorporate them into your big day.
