From pumpkin spice lattes to cozy neutral boots, how could you not fall for Fall? It's packed with seasonal treasures for the stomach, the closet and the home. But, Fall offers so much more than Thanksgiving dinner and sweater weather. It’s the season that brings us some of the most unique shapes and romantic shades of the year.

Shopping Seasonally is a great way to add a touch of nature without breaking your budget. Use Fall's sophisticated red and vibrant yellows to capture the warmth and beauty of the season. Pair these shades with romantic lighting and you've got a truly magical experience for guests to enjoy. But, with so many options, we know it can get a little complicated. So, check out our cheat sheet to effortless Fall florals below. 

Pro Tip 1: In-Season Is The Best Season: No bride wants to find out the flowers she's been dreaming of since childhood aren't available for her big day. Skip the disappointment (and cost!) by selecting flowers that are in season.  Picking out of season flowers could mean paying upwards of 50% more and totally blowing your budget. 

The Go To Flowers for Fall [in order of appearance] are: 

  • Camellias - known for their soft and round shape these delicate flowers are beautifully paired with other flowers
  • Hydrangeas -these bushy and festive flowers are an excellent accent to any bouquet.
  • Delphiniums - This country flower adds the perfect  height to any arrangement. it's elegant stem, speckled with vibrant color helps pull any piece to completion. 
  • Sunflowers - A classic and whimsical flower, bursting with color, these beauties will add a touch of unexpected 'WOW'. 
  • If you're looking for fun shapes and a classic look: Orchids, Cala Lillies & Billy Ball's are what's going to set your arrangements apart. 

Pro Tip 2: Focus on a Hue...or Two...or Four - If you're having trouble finding a place to start with your floral selection, trying picking a singular color OR if you're feeling bold, pick a bunch of colors in both neutral and bold shades.

Pro Tip #3: Use Every Flower in Every Way - Let no flower go wasted. Bring those bright oranges and inspiring reds into centerpieces, boutonnieres, and your ceremony space. Throw in some pumpkins or candles, and you'll blow your guests away with all that Autumn charm.

Pro Tip #4: Dabble Beyond Flowers - Arguably the best part of Fall weddings is that you can incorporate aspects of nature beyond flowers. Consider lining your aisle with crisp, ombre leaves and acorns or using a wood stump as a cake stand.

Updated Colors for an Autumn Wedding

Deciding on color combinations can be one of the most challenging parts of planning a wedding.

We love bright and cheerful, spring or summer colors accented throughout a wedding because it takes this already joy-filled event up a notch. However, as we enter into the fall season, color schemes change to jewel tones which tend to make the wedding a bit darker. If you want a crisp, fall wedding but still want some of those cheery pops of color, fear not! We have some new ways to extend those fun colors that we love so much, into this new season with some unique combinations of color schemes!

First up, is a combination that allows you to bring in that bright pop of fuchsia! It is a surprisingly flexible color that transitions well into just about every season. If you are totally set on having those bright pink bridesmaid dresses or floral centerpieces but are worried about bringing it into a fall wedding, all you have to do is just add some wine and chocolate-colored accents. This palette does not let you escape the jewel tones but it does brighten them up a lot with that gorgeous shade of pink! This pairing makes for a perfect and unique color scheme to use in your fall wedding!

The key to this color combo is choosing bright colors but opting for slightly darker shades. Anchoring this palette is a perfect, crisp, Autumn red and a darker shade of yellow. Yellow is a perfect transition color for fall since it is such a happy color and still radiates that feeling from its darker shades. We love a good pop of coral but in this scheme, the coral charm is a shade darker than its usual bubble-gum brightness. The poppy orange is actually the perfect mixture of red and orange to mesh well with its surrounding colors. This pallete is super pleasing to the eye and will be sure to bring some extra brightness into your fall wedding. 

Pastels in Fall? That's right! We totally love this combination because it brings beautiful, Spring colors perfectly into the Autumn season. Like the previous color scheme, we are again, anchoring this one with a cranberry color. However, this time, we are adding in elements of purple and cream. The darker shades of cranberry and lavender tone down the light, lilac color and the cream shade helps balance all three of them out.  I know what you are thinking... This is a completely surprising mixture of colors! It is definitely the most unique out of the three but it would look absolutely beautiful for your outdoor Texas wedding!

We are totally inspired by these unique color combos and hope you are too!
