Autumnal elegance – a cranberry & dusty blue wedding theme

Oh autumn, you’re such a beautiful season and it’s really no surprise that so many weddings now take place during this super pretty time of year. At Liberty in Love, we’re crushing on cranberry and dusty blue colour palettes for autumn weddings so, before we wave winter in, we just had to share this feature with you. So, let’s say hello to autumnal elegance…

Autumnal elegance – a cranberry & dusty blue wedding themeThere’s just so much about this colour scheme and overall wedding look to love. The berry red tones couldn’t be more perfect for this time of year whilst the dusty blue adds another layer of interest and a cooler, almost wintery feel, to the palette. This theme also works so well for weddings of all styles from rustic to city chic, boho to traditional. You can absolutely make it anything you want it to be and, when you add some warm golden accents to the look, it’s downright perfect.

Rich red flowers (including dahlias, our autumnal favourites) look oh-so amazing when you mix a variety of tones and shapes in with some crisp silvery blue foliage. Add in feathers, seed heads, succulents or berries for more autumnal brilliance and trailing ribbons will catch the breeze in a way that will make you yearn for a blustery day!

The ethereal combination of eye-catching blue tulle really can’t be beaten if you’d like to make a statement. Liberty in Love will also make sure that you’re spoiled for choice with coordinating golden accessories. Our edit includes fabulous Ivana sandals from Harriet Wilde (we love the metallic leaf laser design) and Stephanie Browne’s delightful Gloria pearl drop earrings continue the seasonal botanical theme. You’ll have already seen Stephanie Browne’s Golden Ivy bridal headpiece in the first image in this feature and industry insiders and brides alike love this delicate piece.

Obviously grooms and guys look deliciously dapper in blue suits but how about providing big baskets of dusty blue wraps and scarves for your guests in case there’s a chill in the air? We love blue invitations and day-of stationery, especially when there’s a hint of golden calligraphy too.

Fill your tables with flowers and foliage and then use fruits and berries as finishing touches. Use more to adorn your cake or even fill painted pumpkins with more flowers. If you’re using bigger props, a coat of suitably coloured paint will bring your look together or bring in some golden containers and candles for added luxury.

A cranberry and dusty blue autumn wedding really is a feast for the senses!
