Here at Bride & Blossom, we always say that there are no rules when it comes to choosing your wedding flowers. But it’s hard to not be swayed by the season and this is especially true in fall. Summer’s soft pastels and punchy hues give way to autumnal tones of burgundy, wine, orange, rich yellow, and deep lavender. A golden magic pervades the air making it a wonderful time to get married. Simply put, we are falling for florals and rounded up our favorite blooms and color schemes to celebrate the season!
The combination of berry and cream with rustic green is a palette perfect for fall. This hand-tied bouquet featuring burgundy ranunculus, dark purple anemones, eggplant calla lilies, purple ascot roses, burgundy scabiosa, and cream garden roses with accents of blackberries and seeded eucalyptus encapsulates the vibrant spirit of the season.
Gerbera daisies are a joyful bloom that is in season during fall. Available in an array of colors, the daisy has a round, flat shape that makes it a great flower to use to create a wall backdrop for your ceremony. This jaw-dropping display on the rooftop at Studio 450 is modern, yet expressive, showcasing an artful arrangement of harvest inspired hues in orange, red, fuchsia, yellow, pink, peach, and white.
Quicksand roses offer a mesmerizing cream-colored bloom that carries undertones of pink with notes of berry at the edges. Radiated romantic elegance, this particular rose is a great floral for a wedding taking place toward the end of fall when winter’s first frost sets in. A hand-tied bouquet of neutral blooms accented with greenery and seeded eucalyptus captures the natural beauty that emerges during the change of season.
Use these elements with the addition of cream vendela roses, ivory spray roses, white peonies and ranunculus to create a striking tablescape. For a reception at the Liberty Warehouse , the mood was set by adorning the tabletop with low centerpieces in silver and rose gold mercury vases illuminated by the warm glow of votives.
Red, White, and Full of Texture
Once autumn begins, wedding floral arrangements tend to become looser and more natural in style. A combination of textures adds volume and dimension to the traditional, round hand-tied bouquet. Make a lovely impression with a bountiful mix of peonies and roses in lush red hues with touches of white complemented by berries and greenery.
Dramatic Shades of Purple
A dash of purple adds lux drama to wedding florals. Take it to the next level by fully committing to the color, combing various shades that are ever so slightly different from the next. The head table at this Castle on the Hudson reception presented a show stopping display. High centerpieces featuring violet hydrangea in slender glass vases are complemented by low centerpieces of lavender roses and eggplant calla lilies arranged in mirror vases. A mix of votives and high floating candles reflect off the varying colors and textures to dazzling effect.
From the scenic foliage to the golden sunsets to the harvest foods we love to eat, autumn is a season drenched in beautiful, atmospheric color. And we always look forward to seeing how the season inspires wedding blooms.
