Usher In The Romantic Flair With Roses
Since roses are associated with love and romance all around the world, they are often regarded as the quintessential wedding flower regardless of the season you’re getting married in. Roses bloom in a plethora of colors but when it comes to fall wedding decorations, we suggest you pick red, purple, yellow, peach, and orange-colored silk roses for your bridal bouquet tying it with a rustic burlap ribbon for a subtle nod to the fall-inspired textures. You can also install our lovely burgundy rose flower backdrop panels to usher in drama to your ceremony decor.
Make A Floral Statement With Dahlias
Dahlias naturally blossom between late summer and early fall making them the perfect flowers for a fall wedding. Their wide range of rich colors and large fluffy shapes imbue an alluring charm to the fall wedding bouquets. However, for the reception table floral centerpieces, arrange a mix of bright orange, burgundy, red, and champagne-hued artificial dahlias in gorgeous gold pedestal bowls to add a striking visual interest to your fall wedding table decorations.
Bring Out The Mums
When in doubt about which flowers to use for your rustic fall wedding decor, opt for beautiful chrysanthemums in shades of pink, yellow, orange, and cream to impart a whimsical charm. Chrysanthemums are one of the most popular fall flowers that will give your wedding floral arrangements a majestic look with their long petals and fuller appearance. Adorn your wedding arch backdrop stand with a gorgeous combination of large, full-sized chrysanthemums, mini mum sprays, pine cones, and pampas grass or feathers for a stunning floral display.
Add Dimension With Orchids And Calla Lilies
Boasting a structural appeal, both orchids and calla lilies are our favorite fall wedding flowers. They add dimension and height to the flower arrangement elevating the event design up by several notches. Use exotic orchid bloom heads or mini calla lilies as boutonnieres or incorporate them as accent flowers in your bouquets for an elegant addition to your fall wedding flower decorations.
Bridge The Seasons With Sunflowers
If your wedding date falls on the cusp of the seasonal change, choosing sunflowers as your main fall wedding flowers is the safest bet! Include pops of bright yellow silk sunflowers in your outdoor fall wedding decor to complement the hues of nature or deck the aisle chairs with hanging sunflower pomander balls or sunflower and burlap pew bows for lovely ceremony aisle decor.
Incorporating autumnal flowers in your wedding decorations is a great way to add an enticing seasonal touch to your fall affair. But in case your dream wedding decor includes blooms that are out of season, you can always opt for artificial flowers in seasonal hues to turn your dreams into a reality!
