Choosing flowers for spring & summer weddings is a no-brainer: There are so many varieties in season & bright or any sweet pastel and sunny color scheme feels appropriate. But if you would like wedding flowers that reflect the autumn season in exceedingly stylish & intriguing method, it is a little more challenging. Here we share the most recent trends in autumn flowers. The good news is your choices in autumn are as beautiful & stylish as ever.
Think Textured Wedding Flowers
The hottest trend in autumn wedding flowers is lush, richly hued arrangements with uncountable fascinating texture. Rather than using just two or three types of blooms in your centrepieces, try a large mixture of flowers coordinated together with your colour scheme. For example, you may begin with a base of classic flowers & mix in feathery crocosmia. Otherwise you might add non-floral accents such as lotus pods, hypericum berries, or woolly lamb’s ear leaves to make the arrangements more remarkable. For a clearly season bit, burgundy calla lilies or deep purple add visual depth & amp; a dramatic component that asserts that summer is over.
Classic Wedding Flowers in Rich Hues
Although texture is key, classic flowers still rule for autumn weddings. Tailor them to the time of year by selecting a lot of deep & dramatic shades than you’d within the summer — opt for classic autumn hues or go with more unexpected colors like aubergine, burgundy, copper, & forest green. Lush, elegant dahlias may be the standard autumn blossom since they come in all the autumnal tones (red, orange, & plum). Of course, roses will always be popular & are available in any hue you need for your autumn color scheme. Also warm for autumn weddings: antique hydrangeas in greens & purples.
Pick a Polished Wedding Bouquet
Loosely tied bouquets that look like they were just gathered from an English garden are a natural choice for many brides during the spring & summer, but for autumn weddings, bouquets can be more structured. Think tightly packed, dome-shaped bouquets in a color scheme such as red & plum. Instead of leaving stems exposed, trend-conscious florists enfold them in textured fabric, ribbons, or velvet sashes. The groomsmen boutonnieres can be similarly polished — instead of a bare stem, choose grosgrain ribbon or boutonnieres wrapped in satin for your wedding party.
Use Plants as Reception Centerpieces
Succulents are a hugely popular landscaping trend right now, & stylish brides are working them into their centerpieces too. They are season less but come in deep, autumn-appropriate hues like cactus green, rich purple & pomegranate. Since their leaves look like petals, succulents mix up easily with flowers.
Bypass Boring Glass Vases
For centerpieces, while classic glass vases may feel right in summer. For autumn, style-conscious pairs are using everything from eye-catching copper pots to silver trophy cups & going earthy with containers made of wood or gold-leaf vases or covered in lichen. Mismatched antique urns or else pots from the markets are also popular. Use a group of pots in different sizes — as many as five per table — that your guests can take home at the end of the evening. When you decide on glass vases, you can add a specifically autumn feel by using wheat berries or grain as a base for the flowers.
Eco-conscious couples & their florists are focusing on using locally grown organic flowers. One eco friendly-wedding lesson for your flowers: Stick to flowers grown near the wedding site, which lessens your ecological impact, rather than flying flowers in from a different continent. Organically grown blooms spare the world (and your guests) from exposure to potentially harmful chemicals. It is also a great way to support nearby nurseries & celebrate the local region.
