Colours that are very much on trend this season are emerald greens, deep pinks, soft pinks are always stunning, metallic greys and purples and lots of warm oranges.

If you want your colours to be more subtle and less bold then white with infusions of gold and silver are gorgeous for this time of year.

These colour schemes can be used across your decor, including table settings, favours, and invitations.

This year has seen lots of rustic, whimsical themes for weddings that you may associate only with summer but nothing is more gorgeous than a country glow, scattered tea lights in jars instantly creates a cosy magical atmosphere.

It does not matter where your venue as taking inspiration from these ideas will always be pretty if you like the whimsical styles that are so on trend.

Favours are a special little gift to leave on the place setting on your guests,  and you could spend forever coming up with ideas that your guests will love.

However for this season you may like the idea of making homemade jars of cooking mix, or a hot drinks mix, a great DIY favour.

To make put ingredients for hot cocoa in a jar, including marshmallows or extra chocolate etc.

Add a label instructing your guests to simply add water to the mix in a cup, and they then have a delicious cup of hot cocoa.

You could also add a little something around the top of the neck of the jar like pretty lace or ribbon, adding to the autumnal feel and tying in with your colour scheme.

If you have time for such projects, homemade favours such as cookies just add a personal touch to a wedding too, and make for a memorable detail your guests won’t forget.

If part of your wedding involves being outside in the cold UK air then you may want to make available scarfs and shawls for the lady guests, this will be budget dependable but your guests will appreciate the sentiment.
