Fall Wedding – Colors and Flowers

A fall wedding can be very beautiful with the natural colors of the season and the beautiful memories and photos that come with it are sure to be cherished.

It is a beautiful time to have a wedding with the seasons changing and beautiful warm leaves falling from the trees.

Autumn is the season to play with colors. With the leaves changing colors, and not to mention the perfect weather, it’s a great season to have your wedding. The season brings so much inspiration. Neutral colors are wonderful for a fall wedding. Think: nudes, yellows, browns, oranges, reds, and even some greens. Most of these colors are similar to each other in the color palette so it is important that you don’t have too much of each. Balancing the colors out is the key to incorporating any type of color. Small pops of red and orange with white and nude can give you that autumn affect you want. Incorporate some greens in as well in the form of leaves or grass for a true autumn wedding. You can even go for a brown-green-orange color scheme.

Understand that there is no right or wrong choices when selecting flowers for your wedding. It is your own personal choice, as your own preferences are the most important part, as well as having a basic understanding of what works well for the theme you’ve chosen and your budget. You can also expect a good florist to provide you with helpful advice, so be prepared to ask plenty of questions and to run ideas past your florist once you reach that stage.

Start by looking through bridal magazines, books, and even gardening books that focus on flowers. If you don’t already have an idea of the types of flowers you’d like to have, simply looking at beautifully photographed flowers can be a lovely way to start getting an idea of what you like. Even consider taking a tour of local gardens or a greenhouse where flowers are on display, to get a real feel for how the flowers appear.

Remember that less is more. Flowers are the splash of color, the ornamentation on top of many other already beautiful parts of a wedding. Good positioning and use of inexpensive foliage can create the sense that you have more floral arrangements than you actually do. Your florist must share your vision, or it’s time to find one who does.

Don’t be scared to add in some gray or pinks to add to the warmth of the fall season. If you have decided to have your fall wedding at barn or rustic location hay and wheat are great to touches. The wheat can be used as a centerpiece and you can also include hay bails for decor and seating.

Flowers for the church or other place of marriage are also important. Flowers can be placed at the end of pews, on the altar, chancel steps, windowsills, around candelabra etc. Floral displays in most churches need to be large to be effective in the huge space of the church.

The bridal bouquet is the most intimate floral arrangement for the wedding and if you can’t afford many flowers, at least don’t skimp on the bouquet. The bride’s bouquet should be the largest and most spectacular bouquet in the wedding party. White is still traditionally the most popular color for the bride’s bouquet, but many different colors are used in weddings today for the bride and bridesmaids from soft pastels such as pale pink through to rich, vibrant colors such as hot pink, burgundy and violets. Ultimately, the choice of flowers for the bouquet depend on what you want, the style of your dress, your height and your wedding theme. It is recommended that you don’t finalize the bouquet until you have chosen your dress, because the two must match perfectly, and usually the larger the dress, the larger the bouquet.

There are various styles of bouquets. These include round, trailer, sheaf, crescent, line, and cascade bouquets:

Round bouquets are a popular choice for many brides. This style is usually used for large flowers such as roses or peonies, loosely arranged with foliage and tied with a ribbon.

Large trailing bouquets (a cascade) are particularly suited to romantic style wedding gowns. They will only work well with larger dresses though; they overpower anything slinky or close-fitting. These usually consist of flowers wired to a handle; it is both the most traditional and most formal form of bouquet shapes.

Tied bouquets are hand tied casually or wound together with wire. This style goes best with a modern, simple dress at a contemporary wedding.

A posy is a minimalist approach that is very small and usually hand-tied with ribbon; lily of the valley is an ideal flower for this type of bouquet.

A pomander bouquet is usually made without the addition of foliage and it can be suspended on a ribbon for the bride to wear on her wrist.

An elegant line bouquet of lilies is a good choice for a slim-fitting gown.

A modern style bouquet made of exotic flowers and tropical foliage will suit the contemporary bride.

Consider additional embellishments to a bouquet:

Pearls and crystals can be incorporated into bouquets for a touch of added glamour.

For a delicate touch sheer organza ribbon can be used to create ribbon bows and long streamers.

Wedding flowers can be simple or elaborate depending on the type of wedding that is being planned. Either way, they should have a look of individuality and look as if they have all been specially created for the bride.

Note:

Autumn/fall flowers: aster, clematis, daisy, hosta, hydrangea, passion flower, and pinks.

All year round flowers: calla lily, carnation, gypsophila, orchid, protea, rose, and tulip.
