Autumn is a perfect season to get married because it’s not too hot nor too cold—perfect for an outdoor wedding. Preparing a wedding during this time gives wedding planners more decorating options, particularly with rustic, natural themes. It’s also more affordable for brides to buy a wedding dress, and caterers will often have special Autumn-themed specials.

Booking a venue is also easier during Autumn as well, and garden wedding venues are often a favourite among brides. However, you still might have trouble organising everything. How can you make the most of beautiful Autumn nuptials? 


Here are 5 affordable ideas for a perfect Autumn wedding:

1. Pick the Perfect (Outdoor) Venue

One aspect of any wedding is the location, and with dedicated wedding venues getting more expensive, particularly in the city, it can be hard to get a good place to tie the knot.

A favourite alternative to high-class wedding venues is outdoor function centres that can host garden ceremonies. Go to the country-side where you and your guests are surrounded with lush sceneries. 

Couples prefer to get married in outdoor venues near Sydney due to the privacy and exclusivity they feel as they say their I do’s. A prime destination when couples choose Dural wedding venues is Springfield House along New Line Road.


2. Maximize a Minimal Guest List

If you’re trying to save money on your entire wedding, you need to trim your guest list to some of the most important folks in you and your would-be spouse’s lives. The fewer people attending your wedding, the less you have to spend on invitations, food and rentals.

At the same time, intimate weddings make this special day even more meaningful and memorable.


3. Use Nature as Decor

The best part about garden wedding venues is that you don’t have to go big with wedding decor. Fallen branches and leaves, especially as they turn golden-yellow or brick-red, make perfect centrepieces when you bundle sticks and leaves together and add some red and golden baubles around them or put them on top of a beautiful table runner.

Garden wedding venues are also perfect for weddings at any time of the day. If your ceremony and reception are planned during the day, you can rely on soft lighting straight from the sun as it peeks through the canopy above.


4. Do It Yourself

Some items in a wedding reception need not be bought or rented. 

For example, if you’re planning to send out physical invitations to your outdoor wedding near Sydney, you can design and print out invitations yourself. There are free online graphic design platforms that have invitation templates that can edit and personalise and print them out in the comforts of your own home.
