For most brides, one of the best times of the year to get married is during the fall or autumn season. During this season, the leaves on trees are changing colors and the heat of the summer has subsided without the biting cold of winter. Not only is the weather suitably perfect for weddings, but you have a lovely palette of autumn colors to choose from as a theme for your wedding!
How to Decorate the Church & Reception Venue with Flowers for Fall
Another benefit of having a wedding during the fall season is that it’s a time of the year when beautiful flowers are in bloom. Rather than having to spend a lot of money on choosing out-of-season flowers, choosing ones which are in bloom during the fall will save you on wedding planning costs. In addition, you can rest assured that the flowers which are in full bloom will beautifully decorate the wedding ceremony and reception venue.
Now, what are the things that you need to keep in mind when using flowers to decorate the venue where your wedding will be held? As mentioned earlier, it helps to select blooms which are currently in season. By now, you should already have a color palette in mind. If autumn colors are your theme, for example, you can use bright fall flowers to decorate the venue. Chelone, Eupatorium, chrysanthemums, helianthus and sedum are blooms which have lovely hues which will coincide with your fall wedding décor.
Aside from the flowers to be used on your wedding bouquet, make sure that the other members of the bridal entourage also have flowers. Small bouquets for the bridesmaids and a sprig of sedum that you can pin on the suit of the groomsmen create a lovely touch.
If you are having a church wedding, spruce up the venue with flowers lining up the walkway or aisle where the bride would march. Strew rose petals on the red carpet to make things even more special. You should also have flowers to decorate each table on the reception, as well as the table where the newlyweds will be eating their first meal together at the reception.
When planning your wedding, seek the help of an experienced florist who will buy the blooms and arrange the flowers on the wedding ceremony and reception venue.
