Your East Midlands Wedding - October/November 2023 (Issue 58)

Burnt orange, green and champagne colours are trending for bridesmaids this season – it’s not hard to see why! Hello lovely readers, and welcome to another issue of Your East Midlands Wedding! As the warmer weather starts to fade and the darker evenings creep in, it’s time to welcome autumn with open arms. There’s nothing better than strolling hand-in-hand through the forest this time of year to get some fresh air while enjoying nature. I love getting cosy on the sofa with a blanket and hot chocolate while watching my favourite Halloween films to get in the festive spirit. I’m a big kid at heart, so I couldn’t be more excited to go pumpkin picking and bringing out my cottage-core decorations around my home. The scenery has embraced shares of orange, red and yellow this time of year, which creates the ultimate backdrop for weddings. Embrace the rich tones and seasonal foliage in your venue styling for autumnal nuptials – I’m talking sunflowers, berries, acorns, dahlias and hydrangeas. Add incense sticks around your wedding with scents like pumpkin spice or cinnamon for that extra wow factor. Fill your venue with candles to enhance the romantic atmosphere; we suggest LED candles as a safe alternative, especially if children attend. For those just starting their wedding journey, autumn is the perfect time to visit various wedding shows to discover plenty of companies while looking around venues. Meeting suppliers in person will allow you to gauge what the team are like and if they’re a good fit for your day. Here you can view their work, keep up-to-date with the latest trends, find inspiration and ask plenty of questions. Some suppliers even offer special discounts or offers at events. Bring your loved ones for a fun day of wedding planning. This issue is bursting full of inspiration, thanks to the wonderful suppliers around the region! We have autumnal must-haves, drawdropping weddings, showstopping venues, expert advice, gowns galore and top honeymoon destinations. Flick to our beauty pages to discover product launches and wellness advice or discover the latest happenings from around the East Midlands in our news feature. That’s all from me; happy planning!
