You might even go with a floral print with some auburn or copper hints of color woven through.
11. The groom’s tux
Is your groom’s style more classic or unconventional? Autumn vibes pair well with modern trends of choosing a patterned or autumn-colored suit. Go with colors like ochre, crimson, or even prints like plaid. Another fashionable November wedding idea is suits of luxe fabric such as velvet or cashmere.
12. Your wedding party
If you are including a ring-bearer or flower child in your wedding, let them present in autumn-themed attire. Let the little ones show off a pop of fall color in a carnelian bowtie or a dusky rose floral headpiece.
