Fall is the season for changing colors, from the bright greens and pastels of summer, to beautiful deep reds, golds and greens of fall. Along with changing textures in the foliage of the trees and cool autumn breezes, come many beautiful fall weddings and lives joining. Fall seems to be one of the most popular times of the year for weddings, and can be accentuated by the natural backdrops and flowers that are in season for fall. While flowers of all varieties can be shipped from overseas all year long it can be very expensive.
Knowing what is in season for your fall wedding can save you big bucks. There are a variety of flowers that are in season year round along with many beautiful deep colored flowers and plants in season during the fall that can be used to adorn any wedding venue and reception. You can save money by choosing flowers that are in season whether you are using a florist or doing the flowers yourself.
A few of my favorite flowers for bouquets during the fall which can be used as single stems or together for larger bouquets, still helping to conserve money, are Sunflowers, Gerber Daisies, Mums, Black-eyed Susans, Chrysanthemums, Dahlia, and Gladiolas. Roses are available in all seasons if you would like to incorporate some of the beautiful colors available.
Sunflowers and Gerber Daisies are my favorites and look great as single stems or in a bunch. Mums are also in season during the fall and come in a variety of beautiful deep colors including reds, purples, and golds. They would be a great inexpensive option to floral arrangements around your wedding venue or reception and a few stems could be incorporated into bridesmaid’s bouquets to pull the look together.
Fall flower choices are mostly found in deep color tones, but if you would like to add some lighter tones, you could add a few to your bouquets along with those in season and still save money. What flowers are available varies by region and climates, so make sure you check to see what flowers would help you save your budget and still achieve the look you want.
Some of the flowers that are available year round include Roses, Carnations, Eucalyptus, Gardenia, Gladiolus, Heather, Lily of the Valley, Orchids, Portea, Scabiosa, and Delphinium along with the Calla Lily. However, if you are on a tight budget, you may want to choose something other than lilies, because they are more expensive than some other choices.
You have several options for filler flowers and foliage with the changing of the leaves in the fall. Magnolia leaves, maple tree leaves and others are some great ideas for using to fill a natural arrangement or to use as a center piece of a table. I have seen stems of pepper plants used during fall and it seems to be a great addition of color. Don’t forget the pumpkins and gourds in fall. You could use white pumpkins, green ones or the traditional orange pumpkins as accent pieces. I have found that using the colored leaves along with pillar candles in the center of tables, along with some pretty ribbon, makes a real show stopping center piece. You could also mingle in the gourds or pumpkins for some added color and texture on the tables.
The changing of the seasons, from the hot summer months to the cool fall weather, with the beautiful changing colors in the trees and deep colored flowers, is one of my favorite times of the year. It seems to also be a great time to get married. Though many times flowers are one of the biggest expenses of a wedding, they don’t have to be if you take note as to what flowers are in season and plan your color scheme around them. Be creative and save your money!
