There are so many options for beautiful fall florals you can use for decorations at your wedding. From the bouquets and boutonnieres to the centerpieces and décor, the flowers will set the scene for the day.
One of the most popular arrangement types for fall weddings is the eclectic type. Mismatched flowers are perfect for every celebration because they match every décor style and add intrigue to the event. Here are a few ideas:
- Thrift some vases so all your arrangements have a unique look even if they’re similar flowers.
- Use similar flower types in multiple colors. Without the confinement of a color scheme, your florals can really pop.
- Consider picking a color scheme but not a specific flower. Your arrangements will look seamless and perfectly mismatched when you use a color theme and multiple kinds of blooms.
Muted tones are perfect for fall since fall is full of bright autumn tones. The absolute compliment to the bright colors surrounding the season is a few muted tones that will allow fall’s natural colors to stand out. Here are a few muted tone ideas for your fall florals:
- Beige, tan, and sage green. These are all the ideal amount of understated, which will make your decorations look subtly beautiful.
- Muted reds and oranges. They’re the perfect to compliment the fall foliage.
- Blush pink, whites, and dark purples. These colors give off fall tones in a beautifully muted way.
The most beautiful and appealing part of autumn is the changing colors of the leaves. Consider making a statement about the season by using those leaves and colors in your themes. Another option is to use the season to inspire your bouquets and floral arrangements. Here are a few tips:
- Make the Leaves the Focal Point. Use small flowers such as Baby’s Breath as an accent against the backdrop of many multicolored leaves.
- Opt for a Foliage Arrangement. Instead of floral, use leaves to highlight the revels of fall.
- Use Earthy Tones in Your Accents. This allows the leaves to stand out and steal the show of the florals.
Statement shades are perfect for your fall wedding day. The bright and attention-grabbing colors blend the theme and the season together in an impeccable mixture. Picking bold colors in the same type of shade helps highlight your vision for the day without being too distracting. Here are the best fall statement shades:
- Green: A dark forest green can be captivating in a floral arrangement.
- Violet: Deep purples are stunning against a light color scheme.
- Orange: Burnt, rustic orange tones set themselves apart from backdrops while blending with the foliage.
- Teal: Teal is bright yet understated and creates a bright and robust ambiance in any venue.
Countless types of wildflowers lend a captivating bohemian or earthy vibe to your wedding. A big bonus of using wildflowers for your wedding flowers—besides the added beauty—is the price. Wildflowers can be very affordable. Here are some of Everyday Bride’s favorite wildflowers for weddings:
- Black-Eyed Susans
Who doesn’t love a fall botanical garden? Create your own personal botanical garden for your special day with various blooms in the same color scheme as your wedding. Here are some tips for curating a garden for your nuptials.
- Use many different fall blooms.
- Highlight flower species native to your area.
- Pick a few colors by matching your bridesmaid dresses, centerpieces, and accent colors.
Ombre is a term usually used when describing clothing, hair, or nails—but ombre can also make a difference in your wedding’s floral arrangements. Consider choosing flowers in many shades of corresponding colors.
The key to creating an ombre effect is to arrange the flowers in a gradient. For example, if you choose to go with a purple theme, find multiple flower types in different purple shades. Set up the dark flowers first, and as the arrangement progresses, move to the lighter hues.
Golden Hour Inspired
The golden hour yet is a time in the evening where the sun provides a gorgeous glow that illuminates photos. Golden hour isn’t limited to stunning shots; it can be extended into a theme for fall florals arrangements.
Consider using golden tones such as sunflowers, marigolds, and more. Stick to yellows and light oranges to create a glow all for your special day.
Dried Flower Arrangements
Dried arrangements of flowers are a growing trend in the wedding scene this fall. There are many benefits to using dried florals in your ceremony, and the flowers are timeless. They lend a rustic and dark romance ambiance to any venue. Here are a few benefits to dried flowers:
- They’re low-maintenance.
