Fall is a great time to have a wedding as it offers a wide range of colors, textures, and decorations to choose from. With the right amount of preparation, patience, and planning, your autumn wedding will turn out amazing!
When choosing colors, consider combining deep hues with cooler neutral tones. To keep the color scheme simple and flowing choose two to four colors that work well together. Split into early, mid, or late, fall colors change as the season moves. Beautiful shades of sage, pumpkin spice, and cherry reflect the changing leaves and comfort of autumn. Bright yet warm colors like marigold and green combined with radiant reds are popular themes to early fall weddings. Mid-fall wedding colors tend to move away from the vibrant shades of summer and into the bronze, metallics, burgundy, orange, and gold shades of the season. Late fall is best with neutrals and pale shades of the coming winter, as well as pops of color to reflect the current season.
Each season of the year inspires endless ideas for decorations, and fall is no exception. A common theme for fall decorations is to include florals from the environment such as succulents and branches. Serving as a duel purpose, fire pits provides warmth to the somewhat chilly season of autumn while also bringing in colors like the red-orange of fire and the dark brown of wood. Hemp and twine can be added texture to bouquets or centerpieces. Scattered leaves, pine cones, small pumpkins, bundles of wheat, and wooden barrels are some of the many decoration options for fall weddings.
A plethora of colors can be found in the fall season. Experts say to use a variety of textures and hues when creating bouquets. Spray red roses, billy balls, berries, red rover mums and alstroemeria are just some of the many options for fall wedding flowers. Asters add a touch of fun and come in purple, white, pink, and blue. Pink muhly grass comes in a cotton candy pink shade that looks amazing in the background of pictures. Tagetes lemonii, also known as Mt. Lemmon marigold, is a light yellow color that is sure to add the right flavor to any bouquet. Surprisingly, asparagus, pistachio berries, sweet peas, and even wild raspberries create a combination that is sure to impress. Succulents, Gerber daises, and calla lilies are also great fall wedding flower options that look wonderful in any arrangement.
