Fall Wedding Ideas We Are Loving Right Now

Fall is the season for love. In fact, over a third of Bride & Blossom’s weddings take place between September and November. With its rich palette of colors, golden light, and chill in the air perfect for cuddling, fall radiates romantic bliss.

The bride planning a wedding this time of year has much to look forward to when it comes to creative décor and styling. While the availability of flowers is limited, the season offers a bounty of fruits and vegetables that look stunning in table centerpieces. The more candles adorning a tablescape or aisle the better. And we could go on and on about the wonderful food and drinks this time of year brings. It’s all about comfort food right now, and incorporating a pumpkin pie and apple cider cocktail into a wedding menu will leave guests full and happy.

It’s not too often these days that we meet a bride who is marrying her high school sweetheart. Lauren and Jordan’s story goes back even further to when they met during childhood. Lauren recalls, “We ran in the same circles growing up but never really took an interest in each other until we were about 17. We never parted ways after that and the rest is history!”

Creative Ideas for Wedding Floral Décor

 We love taking wedding floral design to new and beautiful heights. While traditional wedding bouquets and centerpieces receive the most attention, there are numerous creative ways to display flowers. Highlighting blooms that are unique and totally unexpected is not only stunning, but it also brings personality and style to the ceremony and reception. For the bride who wants to make a statement, here are five creative ideas for wedding floral décor.

Suspended Blooms

To create a total atmospheric setting, hang flowers from the ceiling. The impression is similar to an art installation and will completely transform the look and feel of your venue space. A neat, rectangular arrangement of upside blooms looks chic and modern. An artful hanging display gives the appearance of a magnificent floral chandelier, while staggering blooms overhead casts an air of romantic enchantment.

Chuppah Design & Construction

Traditionally reserved for Jewish ceremonies, a chuppah is a four-posted canopy that symbolizes the home a couple will build together during their marriage.  Today, chuppahs can be seen at weddings of all types, from nondenominational to secular.  Chuppahs are a beautiful way to frame your ceremony and create a personal, sacred space for you and your partner to exchange vows.

Every chuppah begins with a sketch, often drawn from several inspirational sources.  “We work closely with our brides on creating the perfect ceremony backdrop, as the decor is setting the scene for such an important moment,” explains our Director of Events Elianna Phelps,  “Sometimes our brides bring us several inspiration images – none of which are their dream ceremony.,,

A Colorful Statement

Get inspired by the bright summer sun by giving your wedding ceremony a colorful twist! At Bride & Blossom, we welcome the opportunity to play with color, especially in designing our ceremony chuppahs and arches. We enjoy thinking outside the box to create unique works of art that represent our couples. Whether flowers create an ombré effect or a “pop” of color, your ceremony will be sure to impress your guests and create the perfect backdrop for your special day.

Our lovely bride at Tribeca Rooftop was ecstatic to see her purple ombré vision come to life for her outdoor ceremony in August. Nicole married her best friend Mark under a canopy of vibrant purples and lush creams. We used varying shades of roses, carnations, and hydrangea to create this beautiful color palette.

Wedding Flowers in Paris With Karen Tran

 

Last year I traveled to Paris to take part in Karen Tran’s Master Class. Today I came across a video and thought I’d share! It was just amazing to meet and work with Karen. Her floral designs have been a major influence and inspiration to our whole team. Her wedding flowers are created with a sense of lavish romance that really casts a spell.

You might recognize the lush tablescapes and ceremony decor we created for a styled shoot, from our gallery Charming Chateau. With photos by Christina Federova.

The shoot took place in Paris at Chateau de Bouffemont. You can learn more about Karen Tran’s Master Classes, and find some of the most beautiful wedding-flower inspiration, at The Floral Experience.
