Autumn Wedding Trends

Autumn Wedding Trends

As the nights draw in, the seasonal shift therefore influences the trends we see emerging in the designs of our clients’ wedding stationery.

With the cooler weather and the changing light, we consequently witness a move away from the blush pinks and sunshine brights favoured by summer brides to more subtle hues worthy of the chillier months.

Here are just a few of the trends for wedding stationery we’re seeing as we move through autumn into winter.

What to consider when choosing an outfit as mother of the bride

What to consider when choosing an outfit as mother of the bride

Today’s weddings are often based around a theme, using one colour palette to tie everything together; from the wedding invitations, flowers, bridesmaid dresses and table settings, even down to the food. For the mother of the bride this can be very helpful as it provides guidance and direction, which can make the decision about what to wear a great deal easier. The mother of the bride is an integral part of the bridal party and traditionally her choice of colour takes precedence over the Mother of the Groom (who should never dress to outdo the bride’s mother).

As a mother of the bride, we would suggest having a clear idea about the particular theme and colours chosen for your daughter’s wedding – before you go shopping! Once you start your search, finding exactly the right outfit, in the colour of choice, can seem daunting. Especially if the fashion world has deemed your chosen hue as not on trend that season.

SUSIE HETHERINGTON Q&A

What inspires you? I am inspired by details and patterns found in nature, mainly. I have been this way all my life; my mum said walking anywhere with me as a toddler took ages as I wanted to inspect every stone on the road, and take home every shell on the beach. I live on National Trust Common land and the village has beautiful wild flowers, free-roaming live stock, stunning views and ancient woodland. I don’t have to go very far for inspiration.

Who inspires you? Most people involved with the Arts and Craft movement, but specifically William Morris and Charles Voysey. Then later, great printmakers such as Eric Ravilious. Current artists/printmakers would include Mark Hearld, Marthe Armitage, and my friend’s Cameron Short and Lou Tonkin.

KRISTIE VARGO Q&A

What inspires you? Inspiration comes from using all my senses. Colours, textures, music, books I’ve read or are reading, past and future travels, food, movies, poetry, and even a silly phrase has been known to spark an idea. My imagination is a fun place to play.

Who inspires you? The people who inspire me personally are the ones that never discouraged me from my dreams, my parents. They are the reason I am an artist today. The people who inspire me artistically are the ones that express themselves unapologetically, such as Salvador Dali or Salman Rushdie.
