At Ontario Bakery, we understand that you are far too busy to spend time on unnecessary reading, so we’re going to get right to the tips.
First of all, you want to make sure you mix bold Autumn colors with a contrast of natural textures to accent. Use rich chocolate browns, burgundy and burnt orange, with decor accents of burlap, velvet, and natural elements such as wood slices and blocks. Some ideas are to have your guest sign in list surrounded by leaves and bark paper or to arrange tea lights on little branch cuts on tables.
Next, we say, choose warm and dark. If you have the option to have the ceremony at sunset with the reception under the stars or basking in the moonlight, then please do it. For food, use spices like clove, cardamom and cinnamon. Brighten up the ambience with golden stringed lights around the reception area.
Make sure you add splashes of the seasonal harvest, like adding pumpkins and anise stars to the table. If you’re not wanting the orange of the pumpkin, get creative and paint them gold. Your guests and your eyes will be delighted for sure!
For the beauty side of things, steer away from just the basic browns and mauves - and add accents of gold or even copper to your eyes. Have fun with a nude lip or go rich with a smooth bordeaux color. Hair done up and out of the face will keep those colors rich without overwhelming the picture and still accenting your dress.
