Fall is definitely one of the most charming times of the year to get married, although not everybody is convinced of that. Spring and summer are the most popular seasons for weddings, but we are delighted to see that cold seasons are also gaining in popularity every single year. If you don’t want to plan a standard or predictable wedding, we suggest you choose autumn for your big day. There are many ways to add a special touch to a fall wedding, and flowers can help you do that.
The bride who fears that fall is just too gloomy for a cheerful wedding day can choose lavish blooms in rich colors to escape that rainy mood.

Use fresh blooms so that you can liven up your look and add more opulence and vitality to your wedding ceremony. You need to purchase real flowers for your bouquet and for the bridesmaids’ arrangements, for the boutonnieres and corsages, centerpieces, cake and other décor arrangements. Specialists in weddings recommend modern brides – especially those who are on a budget – to look for seasonal blooms.
Fall flowers are easier to find and purchase by economical brides than exotic blooms imported from outer regions.

Among the most popular blooms that can be found in autumnal months we mention the following: dahlias, garden roses, zinnias, chrysanthemums, spider mums, gerbera daises, asters, yarrows, statice, amaryllises and sweet William. These beautiful flowers can make adequate choices for September, October and November wedding ceremonies.
If you want to go traditionally elegant, we recommend lilies, daises and orchids. These blooms are available year round and so you can find them in any flower shop, in different colors. Roses are by far the first option for many fall brides. You can find them in a myriad of species: Black magic, Leonidas, Terra Cotta, Star 200 or Sari. Use holly, berries, pine cones, wheat, dry grasses, gourds or squashes to ornate your bouquet.

The bridal bouquet is usually composed or chosen with a day before the wedding. The arrangement needs to look fresh and elegant during the ceremony and this is why you can create it even with a few hours before the big “I dos”. This is the case of those who decide to use live flowers.
The bouquet design is one of the most important decisions to make. Just like a dress, the flower bouquet can be chosen by shape and by style. There are classic nosegay and posy shapes, hand-tied loose arrangements, round, crescent and cascading types of bouquets. These are just a few examples, but the list is longer than this. If you want something large and elegant, we recommend you the arm sheaf bouquet! This style is very gallant, romantic and feminine.
It comes in various names, but you should keep in mind that it is a type of bouquet that you can hold on your arm. If you’ve always dreamed of wearing your flowers on your arm, this is the chance you have to fulfill that wish! Not all women want to carry a flower bouquet in their hands and look alike many other brides. The simple round bouquets that are trendy today are used by the majority of brides. So, if you care for something more original, choose an arm held bouquet. The design possibilities are numberless and you can also create one for your own wedding. Don’t feel limited by the existing choices and pick something standard.
Choose a trickier bouquet that can offer you more exclusivity and unique elegance. The arm bouquet will surely make a lasting impression. This bouquet is also known as the “presentation” bouquet.

Orchids are such versatile flower selection for a wedding that we don’t even know what to present you first. These flowers have many qualities and it’s always hard to touches all the important ones. It was difficult for us to choose only three pictures for this post.
The Internet is full of amazing bouquets of orchids created exclusively for 2012 brides. And we should mention that the contemporary bride is not necessarily a modern bride. We can still discuss about classic, traditional, vintage and avant-garde inspired brides. We like to think of orchids in a modern way, however. No bride is like another and this is where this diversity of styling and color in weddings of today! Orchids look like the perfect flowers for a wedding. Why we say this? Because they have a sculpted-like shape! Their impeccable look, soft petals, whimsy bloom and unique coloring make them sensational choices for a bride.
Those of you who want something exotic for your ceremony should consider hot pink orchids. You can also find fuchsia and magenta species that look extremely flashy and provocative. These blooms are perfect for tropical island weddings or other eccentric locations. If you care for a softer antique-like look, we suggest you consider pale pink orchids. The blush pink theme is also one of the hottest in this year’s weddings. You can use this coloring for a delicate romantic look inspired from the past or present.
Blush orchids can fit the vintage bride as well as the modern-classy one. If you prefer a more dramatic look, why not try purple orchids?

The ombre effect is not only for wedding cakes, bridal dresses and other fabric wedding decorations. You can adopt this style also for your flower bouquet!
Start with pastel shades of pink and continue with darker tones of purple. Or, for a more outstanding look, start from white or pale rose shades. You can also add a few touches of burgundy and dark red. This will surely add more intensity and whimsicality to your bouquet. White orchid bridal bouquets are for any type of wedding. These blooms look elegant in cascading arrangements, but also in simpler hand-tied bouquets. If your wedding occurs on a beach or island, consider green cymbidium orchids. Mix them with white for a classier look. Yellow and brown orchids are great for fall weddings.
Everybody seems to have a weakness for peonies! These types of flowers are the hottest trend in weddings. Many brides choose them for their wedding bouquet and even more are falling in love for the first time with these sweetish blooms. Peonies are indeed extremely attractive and heart-winning. They are fresh, lush and extremely adorable. We like them because they are expressive and romantic. To us, peonies are the epitome of ultra-elegance, femininity and grace.
There is nothing cuter and lovelier than a bouquet of pink or white bridal bouquet! These flowers can be used in a myriad of ways, as they are extremely easy to work with. Depending on color and bouquet design, you can arrange them to look like antique or vintage flowers, classy or modern flowers. The contemporary bride can enjoy the versatility of these flowers and utilize them in their own manner. Peony wedding bouquets are refreshing and natural-looking, but they can also suit a glamorous bride.
If you want to concentrate on the elegant and luxurious side of your bouquet, add a few white pearls and crystal embellishments to your peonies. This will surely make the arrangement look more sophisticated and perhaps more extravagant. Peonies are dainty and chic no matter how they’re used in a bouquet. But as we said before, the effects depend on the color, size and design of the bouquet you’re composing. For instance, if you want an old-fashion look you can utilize pale white and pink peonies. For a more summery look we suggest you use hot pink and fuchsia peonies.
Use magenta is you care for something more romantic and whimsy for a vineyard wedding. You can find awesome peonies in a lot of purple tones as well! Check out the violet and lilac blooms. They are ravishingly beautiful and unique. You can also find peonies in light and bright red hues, looking extremely appealing and sensual. Your bouquet can feature the same color or different hues. You can mix white and pink peonies, or red and white blooms. The arrangements based on pink & purple nuances are the most vibrant and delicate in the same measure. We adore peonies because of their ruffled appearance.
These blooms are lavish, eye-catchy and very soft. The multiple layers of petals and the freshly colored centers make these flowers charming selections for a bride. Peonies look amazing in simple hand-tied bouquets, but also in larger cascading or crescent arrangements. If you care for something more playful, fun and joyful, we suggest you create yourself a kissing ball or pomander peony bouquet. Tie it with a ribbon or pearl string for a more fashionable and thematic effect. Peony pomander bouquets are ideal for young and delicate brides.

Red roses are great for the idea of a marriage because they signify love & romance, but also passion and power. Any woman needs a little bit of courage and dynamism in her life to be able to succeed in everything she does.
