Fall flowers are anything but shy. They bloom bold and bright, rich and deep. Needless to say, they’re not wall flowers. And that’s the beauty of getting married in the fall. You have your pick of autumn-hued florals and textured botanicals that are in-season—and therefore, on-budget.
Fall for a Peak Color Palette
Mimicking the tree's’ changing leaves, flowers that radiate traditional red, maroon, orange and gold look totally on point for October and November weddings. And you can think outside of the bloom, too. For depth and textural interest, why not add sprays of earthy, wheat-hued grass or hypernicum nberries? Unexpected autumnal touches like these give fall bridal bouquets and centerpieces a distinct look that really stands out in photos.
Accessorize with Rich Jewel Tones
Deep purples and reds lend a rich, regal look that’s unmistakably fall. So go ahead and layer on shades of amethyst, ruby, citrine and sapphire. Because saturated colors light up your face, these bold blooms look especially lovely pinned in your hair—sideswept, upswept or otherwise. They make stunning beauty shots. Just ask your wedding photographer. Want to elevate the elegance even more? Sprinkle in some gold leaf accents for a gilded touch of warmth.
Cozy Up to Statement Neutrals
You don’t have to go the traditional route to make a strong fall floral statement. Neutrals can pack just as much of a punch. Case in point, soft blush paired with contrasting dark grey or black accents. Also, consider all white for a clean, modern vibe that feels comforting, too. Don’t save white just for summer or winter. It’s fair game all year. And no matter what florals you choose, lush it up with some fresh greenery for an elegant touch.
No wonder why October is the new June. The flowers look uber fresh.
