There are now many abandoned orchards where you can pick apples. And the leaves, painted in autumn, are literally underfoot. They can be used to make not only excellent decorations, but also invitations to a wedding.

For a very creative bride and groom, we recommend combining an autumn wedding with Halloween. Such a make-up will be appropriate for them.
A husband can wear a classic suit, but a wife? black leather corset and white skirt or stay in a classic white dress. Then orange corsets, bouquets of the same color, black long skirts and short dark bolero vests with long sleeves will be appropriate for the bridesmaids.
