Roses and tulips in shades of deep gold and burgundy are ideal, autumn leaves and foliage can be incorporated to enhance the seasonal theme, wildflowers are also a popular choice to give that rustic feel.

The temperatures at this time of year can be moderate enough to allow for an outdoor ceremony. Placing lanterns and string lights around the venue will create a lovely romantic atmosphere.

You could arrange to provide blankets for guests who wish to sit outside into early evening, and a mulled wine station would help to keep out the evening chill.
