Fall Wedding Season: Flower Trends

Summer is almost over, and autumn will be here before you know it! With 2011 fall wedding flowers, often the colors are just as important as the flowers themselves. Love is in the air this season, with warm rich hues of reds, oranges and golden yellows.

Roses continue to be a favorite foundation for a wedding bouquet, and they are available in a variety of hues.  Ranunculus are another popular spicy autumn flower. Layering in your own personality with the primary flowers is the key. Brides wanting a more natural look for their big event and may want to add elements such as bunny tails, feathers, and berries. The glamorous brides can go in a different direction adding in fun beads, crystal rhinestones, and brooches. Of course, the absolute best is the perfect combination of the two. Martha Stewart’s website has some excellent ideas: http://www.marthastewartweddings.com/photogallery/fall-bridal-bouquets.

Bouquets this season lean more towards the casual side with a fresh picked look and simple hand tied vintage ribbon, as opposed to previous seasons of tightly-bound flowers. Mothers continue to carry their own small posies instead of corsages for a new fresh look.

Flower bars are a delicious new spin-off from the previous candy bar. At the reception, let your guests choose from a stunning assortment of flowers, placed in a various sized glass containers with coordinating ribbon accents. Incorporating a flower bar into your design ensures great wedding favors for the women and an experience they will never forget!
