Picture this – your friends just got engaged, and come to you because they’re so excited about having a fall wedding. They’re mostly excited because getting married during fall means they get to incorporate fall colors… What’s the first thing that comes to your mind?
Most people are going to say the leaves. Not a bad answer at all, but let’s be real… fall floral design would get pretty repetitive if we used the same fall colors over and over again. That’s why today on the blog, I’m going to take you on a little floral journey through a few clients I’ve worked with this fall season, and how we brought their color palettes beyond the traditional reds, oranges, and yellows to create an event that was unique to them!
Buckle up, because this is a blog worth reading!
These two are proof that you don’t have to stick with tradition. Not only did Alejandro and Spencer want a fall color palette, but they wantedsome not-so-traditional pops of pink and bright oranges instead of the traditional muted ones. So, we topped the centerpieces off with some fall leaves for texture, and incorporated tons of dark colored candles and cloches. Overall, the design screamed fall, but with an artistic twist.
Light blue for a fall wedding? Trust me on this.
For Heather and Alex’s special day, we went with all the fall tones. We did some orange and blush colored roses, orange chrysanthemums, fall leaves, and pops of blue! For the table decor we added painted pumpkins! I know light blue sounds a little crazy, but remember, blue is the opposite of orange on the color wheel, so they’re actually great complimentary colors.
It’s fun to play with different textures when arranging flowers, but make sure to take your flowers into consideration! Heather + Alex had warm colored table runners and napkins scattered around which brought all the elements together perfectly!
Two of the greatest things you can do to elevate the texture, color, and look of your wedding florals is to add greenery, and a wide range of colors! That’s exactly what we did for Jessie + Andrew. Burgundy, yellow, pink, green, oranges and reds all came together to create one gorgeous fall palette.
When planning a fall wedding, it’s important to think about the colors, but also the size of the blooms you want! Fall palettes can be amazing, but as Jessie + Andrews florals showed, having various sizes of blooms can make a big difference in the final look!
All in all, you can have both a killer fall color palette and still be creative.
