Fall is the season for changing colors, from the bright greens and pastels of summer, to beautiful deep reds, golds and greens of fall. Along with changing textures in the foliage of the trees and cool autumn breezes, come many beautiful fall weddings and lives joining. Fall seems to be one of the most popular times of the year for weddings, and can be accentuated by the natural backdrops and flowers that are in season for fall. While flowers of all varieties can be shipped from overseas all year long it can be very expensive.
To help save your budget, educate yourself on what flowers are in season for fall. There are so many options for flowers to decorate your wedding and reception that are available year round and others that are in season for fall, including flowers and plants. It doesn’t matter if you are using a florist or tending to the flower arrangements yourself, knowing what is in season is the key to saving money!
A few of my favorite flowers for bouquets during the fall which can be used as single stems or together for larger bouquets, still helping to conserve money, are Sunflowers, Gerber Daisies, Mums, Black-eyed Susans, Chrysanthemums, Dahlia, and Gladiolas. Roses are available in all seasons if you would like to incorporate some of the beautiful colors available.
Two flowers at the top of my list for fall wedding are Sunflowers and Gerber Daisies which allow for budget savers with a gorgeous look. They can be used in bouquets or alone in a single stem. Mums are also available during the fall in a variety of colors and could be substituted for flower arrangements and placed through the wedding ceremony.
Fall flower choices are mostly found in deep color tones, but if you would like to add some lighter tones, you could add a few to your bouquets along with those in season and still save money. What flowers are available varies by region and climates, so make sure you check to see what flowers would help you save your budget and still achieve the look you want.
Some of the flowers that are available year round include Roses, Carnations, Eucalyptus, Gardenia, Gladiolus, Heather, Lily of the Valley, Orchids, Portea, Scabiosa, and Delphinium along with the Calla Lily. However, if you are on a tight budget, you may want to choose something other than lilies, because they are more expensive than some other choices.
The autumn season offers several varieties of changing colors of leaves that offer great options for arrangement fillers and table arrangements. Magnolia leaves arranged in the center of tables are always a gorgeous option. You could add pillar candles and decorative ribbon for an extra affect. Another idea for extra color is to incorporate pepper stems into your arrangements.
Changing from the hot summer months to the cool breezy season of fall is one of my favorite times of the year. With the beautiful backdrop of autumn leaves, fall seems to be a popular time for weddings. Even though flowers are usually one of the largest expenses of a wedding, you can save money by choosing those that are in season. Don’t throw your money away by flying flowers in. You can achieve the same look with flowers that are in season for fall along with fillers that are available year round. Gift Ideas
