Autumn wedding flower choices
Summer and spring are often popular seasons for weddings, but autumn weather can also be ideal. The mild temperature at this time of year is a real boon for bridal makeup and fresh autumn wedding flowers. Since it’s not as hot as summer and not as cold as winter, your freshly cut flowers will retain their beautiful charm for longer. Your florist can deliver her flowers without worrying about the heat and the bride can focus on more important matters!
During the autumn, you should choose flowers that fit the season bringing colour and joy to this wonderful occasion. Most weddings have some sort of colour scheme, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you should choose just one colour. You can create a fabulous autumn wedding for them by combining various seasonal hues like orange, red and olive green. If you want, you can enhance it by adding hints of cream and gold. The bride’s bouquet may include mostly orange blossom with a hint of plum and cream, for example. Finish with some olive green foliage and voila!
Rich in texture
Professional florists will agree that another important element of any flower arrangement is texture. While you might be inclined to select just one flower for a small, portable bouquet, your table arrangements should include a variety of flowers. The different types of flowers give your arrangements a variety of textures and a wide variety of colours. Remember, you don’t have to limit yourself to just flowers and foliage when choosing autumn wedding arrangements. You can also include pine cones, berries, wheat, dry sticks, and similar items to emphasize the autumn theme while keeping the colour scheme appropriate.
Some popular seasonal options
While there might not be that many flowers in bloom during the cooler autumn months, you certainly have your fair share to choose from. Dahlias come in a variety of colours, including dark red. In addition to their perfect colours, dahlias have a lush appearance that is sure to attract the attention of your guests. Chrysanthemums are usually available year round and are one of the cheapest flowers you will find at your local florist. You most likely won’t use them as centrepieces, but they make great bulk flowers to brighten and fill any arrangement. For smaller bouquets, you’ll need smaller flowers. Daisy-like flowers, like asters, that are colourful, compact beauties.
The right holder
Finally, to complete your autumn wedding arrangements, you’ll need to select the perfect containers. While some prefer floral foam to vases. The floral foam can be easily hidden by carefully placing the olive green foliage around the base of the arrangement. Different types of ferns are also popular for adding the perfect green hue and hiding the floral foam. If you prefer a vase arrangement, you can use a clear glass vase or get creative with stick vases for that natural and authentic autumn design. A stick jar will consist of a mason jar perfectly covered in dry sticks.
