Fall Wedding Flowers & Winter Wedding Flowers

Anyone with a fall wedding this year is probably totally up to their ears in planning at this point. The days are getting shorter and your big day is just around the corner. This is such an exciting time, but it can also be a really stressful time as well-especially if you are having a diy wedding. Here are a few tips that I have gathered that can help ease the stress at least on the wedding flowers for your fabulous fall or winter weddings.

Fall Wedding Flowers: Autumn is such a beautiful season, full of rich colors and amazing textures. The best bet for fall brides is to use these fall attributes to create a gorgoues wedding that reflects not only the season, but your personality as well. For colors, think deep yellow, burnt orange, rusty red, and luscious greens. Sunflowers can make an awesome statement at a fall wedding, and look so pretty when placed in a bouquet with deep purple snap dragons, red gerber daisies and mauve peruvian lilies.

Sunflowers also look awesome when used as a gaint bridal bouquet alone or with orange gerber daisies. A cool idea for fall wedding table center pieces is to get fake pumpkins at a craft store, decorate with a little shimmery glitter (not so much so that it looks like a kid’s Halloween Party) and fill with a gorgeous autumn themed arrangement such as burnt orange calla lilies, deep purple button mums, orange & red gerber daisies, and green filler- throw in some queen ann’s lace for a totally elegant, totally fall look. Your cake can be made into an autumn dream by simply placing orange and yellow asiatic lilies at the top, as a cake topper. Have a few orange, red, and yellow asiatic lilies cascading down your cake as well to create a dramatic effect that will be remembered forever. Looking for church decorations? How about attaching giant red gerber daisy heads to each seat, so that the path to the altar is lined with them? This is so simple, and so pretty. Add to the effect by having your Brides Maids carry two or three blooms of giant gerberas in a color to off set the red lined altar path- bright orange or even yellow would look awesome. Don’t forget about sunflowers as well- their bright yellow hue would work really well with this idea. Roses can also be used in a fall wedding- think of bright red roses, or  velvety black magic roses mixed with burnt orange calla lilies. There is nothing like a nice deep red set against a crisp white dress to make a beautiful statement no matter what the season!

Winter Wedding Flowers- There is a lot of creativity that can be used around a winter wedding. This season offers a host of interesting flowers and plants that look gorgeous and are easy to work with. Long Stem Red Roses are a great starting point for a winter wedding, as the nice red off sets the white/grey colors that naturally occur in many locations during winter time. A great bridal bouquet for a winter wedding is Long Stem Red Roses cascading down with deep green fir or even pine branch, and baby’s breath. You could also use deep red dresses for your Brides Maids and have them each carry a single cream colored long stem rose, while you carry a bridal ball bouquet made of cream and red long stem roses, lilly grass, and pearls. A great winter wedding table centerpiece is white calla lilies, red berries (cranberries, holly berries, etc.) set into a floral ring with evergreen leaves as a base. In the center of the ring, place a vase and float a white candle. The twist on this idea would be to place Christmas Ornaments and Ribbon in the center of the floral ring instead and have them overflowing out and between the arrangement for a unqiue effect. A stunning winter wedding cake topper is to have white hydrangeas, white roses, and white sweet peas set in a square or round piece of floral foam (depending on cake shape) and have a very green filler like evergreen leaves mixed with tulle and ribbon finish it off. Place red or green ribbon around each tier of the cake for a truly gorgeous effect.
