You can use Fall flowers like daisies or sunflowers and even chrysanthemums in your bridal bouquets. Go ahead and use items such as fall leaves as centerpieces. If you want the rustic feel, serve the feast in family style. Just keep huge bowls of food covering the tables and ask everyone to help themselves. The easiest thing about planning a wedding in the Fall is that you have the luxury of a huge palette of colors and tastes.
Go ahead and look around you for the fall cake decorations. Opt for the Fall foliage, or simply the delicious harvest fruits. Other options can be of using grains or pumpkins and gourds. Just incorporate these into your wedding cake design. Easiest is to go for a cake totally covered in bright marzipan leaves. Or, why not decorate your fall wedding cake with tiny pumpkins or miniature red apples.

Or would you like to place fresh blooms themselves on your fall wedding cake? Opt for any of the flowers in autumn hues. Go in for sunflowers or orange roses. Another option is marigolds and beautiful zinnias.
Either use them directly or they can be placed by using flowers made from gum paste or even fondant for that real yummy look. Not to missed are ample succulent floral berries. Use these and invoke the autumn spirit!

Whether you decide on a real rustic or a truly glamorous theme for your fall wedding, the most important thing to consider is the theme. Use this theme in every detail and just let your imagination loose and to let the theme truly shine through!

Once you have decided on the Fall Wedding Cake, do remember that not everyone is very comfortable with sugar, maybe because of diabetes or even dieting. So for your health conscious guests go in for delicious little mint dark or even tiny milk chocolate cups.

Remember to place them to the side of your wedding cake which has sugar, and put a "Sugar Free" place card in front of them. Give your guests this sweet and healthy option. Another option is the raspberry cups. They are pretty to look at as well as delicious and of course, healthy. They can contain a perfect amount of real raspberries.

Traditionally, wedding cake designs have always been tiered white, square or round, with some flavored butter cream frosting. But for your Fall Wedding Cakes, opt for the cake of your dreams. Have it in any combination of shape, style, flavor or color. And choose your own thematic decoration.

Looking For Autumn Wedding Decorations

Autumn has always been a popular season to be married, and recently it seems that everyone is taking advantage of the perfect weather fall has to offer and of course, the rich, bold, natural color palette. With the change in the foliage, you can plan your wedding to be outdoors and minimize the need for decorations during your ceremony. But, have a back up plan with either a tent or a quick indoor location, because Mother Nature is not always willing to give you the perfect sunny day you wish for. But don't make that a worry, as long as you have a Plan B in place, you will still benefit from the crisp beauty of the season.
There are so many options with a fall wedding. September offers delicious reds, muted greens, and golden yellows. You need to look to a local apple orchard for color and decoration inspiration-- small apple details printed on place cards, apple topiaries as centerpieces, warm apple cider as a cocktail option, and milling spices as a parting gift for your guests.

October brings burnt ochre, deep russet, and forest green tones. The use of pumpkins, fall leaves, acorns, and gourds will set a warm tone for your wedding, and they are all inexpensive ways to decorate. Favors could be as simple as some roasted pumpkin seeds in a small burlap sachet and a ribbon. Use the nature around you to inspire color and texture for your day. If you are looking to really make and impression and want something different for you wedding, take those pumpkins and carve Jack o' Lanterns as centerpieces and scatter some candy corns around the base.

November brings a harvest of colors and ideas. It is a season of being thankful and your wedding is a chance to capitalize on that sentiment. Rather than traditional table numbers, mark the tables with gold words signifying things for which you and your groom are thankful. Rather than a typical wedding cake, look to the season. Petit fours of pumpkin cheesecake, pecan pie, and spice cake would be a surprising dessert for your guests to enjoy.

Autumn is rich in color and inspiration. The cool but comfortable weather laden with the scent of cinnamon and nutmeg and sounds of crunching leaves will create a wedding to remember.

A Dazzling Autumn Wedding Bouquet Can Be Made Out Of Deep Coloured Flowers

Autumn is visually a glorious time of year when you can feast your eyes on the changing colours from green to amber, yellow, red and orange. The temperatures might be dropping and the days getting shorter, but this seems to help intensify those deep shades, as the foliage dies. If you are lucky enough to have a wedding during this picturesque time of year it would be a shame not to take advantage of these beautiful colours and use them to make a beautiful autumn wedding bouquet.

Do not try and use unseasonal flowers for your wedding bouquet, this will give you added expense and effort in trying to get a summery or spring feel to your wedding. The bouquet should incorporate lots of greens and deep browns and flowers that are readily available at this time of year. Trust your imagination and come up with some truly memorable combinations of colours for your autumn wedding bouquet.

The Versatility Of Red Flowers
If there was one flower more popular that any other it would be the red rose, and it is especially favoured in wedding bouquets at all times of the year. This is to do with its romantic connotations and intrinsic beauty. The red rose is perceived as the embodiment of the classic style and can be used in your wedding bouquet; one should remember there are other beautiful red flowers that can add a deep splash of colour; examples of these flowers include mums, asiatic lilies, bird-of-paradise, carnations, asters and red gerbera daisies. Any of these will help to give an inspired look to your autumn bouquet.

Yellow Flowers To Lift The Dark Colours
If you feel that your autumn wedding bouquet is becoming too dark try and offset this by using yellow or golden flowers these will light up the dark colours and compliment them at the same time. Yellow is seen as a happy colour, especially with its association with the sun and warmth. Some good examples of flowers to use in your wedding bouquets are orchids, crocuses, sunflowers, hollyhocks, daisies and yellow roses.

Remember Orange Hues To Increase The Spectrum of Colour
Orange lies in the colour spectrum between yellow and those deep colours in your bouquet. So if you decide on orange colours, they have a range from rust to peachy hues which will give you enough choice to visually connect the deep colours with the more vibrant yellows. Some orange flowers to bear in mind include: tiger lilies, roses, calla lilies, orchids and daisies.

Tying Your Autumn Wedding Bouquet Together With The Fillers
Crucial to an arrangement holding together are the fillers, without the proper fillers the overall effect can be disastrous. Obviously the fillers used in your autumn wedding bouquet are going to be completely different from those you would use in the summer. To be creative try and intertwine leaves and red berries to create a garland which you can use in your autumn wedding bouquet. All sorts of objects that are used in Christmas decoration, such as copper beach branches, painted pine cones and twigs can also help to consolidate your wedding bouquet and increase its dramatic effect.
Autumn should inspire you to produce a solid and classical look, with depth to impress anyone with both its subtlety and splendour, and not forgetting a touch of whimsy, when putting together an autumn wedding bouquet.

Elegant Fall Wedding Colors: Grape and Magenta

Rich colors are always beautiful for an autumn wedding. But that does not mean that the only option are traditional fall colors like orange and red. For something unexpected, consider the elegant fall wedding colors grape and magenta.

When most people think of a fall wedding, they automatically imagine something rustic, perhaps in a barn or a vineyard. But an autumn wedding can be just as elegant as one held at any other time of the year, and there are many venues which are far more sophisticated than rustic. A fantastic way to decorate this style of fall celebration is with unexpected elegant colors. Grape and magenta fit the bill perfectly: they are rich enough for the season, yet they distinctly veer away from the usual fall foliage theme. They would be fantastic for a reception in a ballroom, country club, museum, or an historic mansion.

One of the great things about grape and magenta is that it will be very easy to find flowers in your signature hues. You can use roses, orchids, gladiolus, calla lilies, orchids, stocks, lisianthus, carnations, tinted seeded eucalyptus, alstromeria, and dahlias.

With so many varieties, you will definitely be able to work with your florist to create the perfect bouquets, centerpieces, and ceremony arrangements. An equal mix of the two colors will look magnificent. If you wish to make your centerpieces more formal, display them in silver footed bowls or tall tapered vases. The bride could opt to carry a classic white bouquet in similar floral varieties, or she could have fun with a bright bouquet.

Grape and magenta are gorgeous colors for the bridesmaid dresses. Cocktail style party dresses are a very hot trend for bridesmaids right now, and there are some fantastic ones available in deep purple. Some of the most chic are those which have a bit of a mid-century inspiration, such as a portrait neckline or cap sleeves, done in satin or dupioni. Classic pearl bridesmaid jewelry will suit these elegant silhouetted. If you like dresses with more of a modern twist, opt for a chic one shoulder dress in grape or magenta. Just steer clear of summery fabrics like chiffon and organza. Dramatic crystal bridesmaid jewelry made with amethyst colored crystals would be fantastic with modern dresses.

A unique idea for your wedding reception is to hire a lighting specialist to use your signature colors to dress the venue. A magenta colorwash would be gorgeous cast on one wall of the reception site. It is a high energy color, so consider using it during the dancing part of the evening. Another possibility is to drape the reception ceiling with white fabric (so pretty for a tented wedding) and cast the light onto the ceiling for a subtle glow. What a wonderful way to infuse your wedding with your special hues.

There are many, many more ideas for creating a dreamy grape and magenta fall wedding. The colors would be stunning for calligraphy on the wedding invitations. They would also be gorgeous for silk tablecloths. This unique color combination will be sure to set your elegant fall wedding apart from all of the foliage theme events.

The Best Flowers For a Fall Wedding

  • roses,
  • daisies
  • calla lilies
  • gerberas
  • sunflowers

The reason that roses are the best flowers for a fall wedding is that roses come in a magnificent range of fall colors ranging from pure golden yellow, bright orange, dark burgundy to two toned chocolate brown roses and confetti roses with their lemon hue tinged with orange tips. The variety of fall roses is stunning and roses are the number one flower that represents romance, therefore, it is ideal for a fall wedding.

Daisies come in many colors, many of them suited for fall. Burgundy, rust, yellow and orange daisies can be used in combination with other flowers in bridal bouquets. They can be used for corsages and boutonnieres, in centerpieces and in church arrangements.

Calla lilies are a popular choice of blooms for weddings. They are classy, elegant and easy to work with when making handheld bouquets. For bouquets, avoid the white ones and go for dramatic burgundy, yellow, orange and brown callas. Callas come in regular large sizes and in miniature sizes. Depending on the size and preference of the bride, it may be more suitable to purchase small callas in larger numbers such as 12 to 15. For the large type of callas more than 8 or 9 is ridiculously huge for a bridal bouquet. Don`t choose smaller callas for the price though as they are the same price as the larger ones in most parts of the country.

Gerberas are also a preferred choice of blooms for fall weddings (and any other season of weddings actually). These versatile beauties come in yellows, oranges, peach, reds and burgundy and in many other colors in between. You can use the large gerberas in wedding bouquets, arrangements and centerpieces while the smaller gerberas are perfect for corsages, boutonnieres and cake flowers.

Sunflowers are also a great choice of flowers for a fall wedding. They now come in a variety of hues and shapes such as yellows, oranges and bronze with single or double blooms, however the classic yellow sunflower is still the most popular and long lasting type of sunflower. Sunflowers also work great in handheld bouquets with the stems showing.

To add texture and variety to your fall bouquets, consider adding berries such as hypericum berries, pepper berries, rose hips or viburnum berries. Fall foliage such as oak leaves and beech leaves also enhance the look of harvest bouquets. From pittosporum greens to  preserved maple leaves, yellow variegated ivy and seeded eucalyptus, fall greens add class to elegant fall wedding bouquets.

Last but not least, consider using autumn accessories for your bouquets or centerpieces. Possible accents to enhance your fall blooms include wheat, rye,cattails, fruit such as apples, pumpkins and pomegranates, raffia or gourds. Hollowed out pumpkins make wonderful centerpieces when filled with fall bouquets.
