If you are looking for more typical fall color scheme marigolds are a timeless touch. These bright orange and red flowers are nicknamed “herb of the sun” because they open when the sun is shining and nearly close at night. In ancient times these flowers were known to promote creativity and represent passion making them the perfect wedding day good luck charm.
The toad lily may have been cursed with an awful name but this lily couldn’t be more beautiful! These small and intricately designed orchid-like flowers stop people in their tracks and create a memorable style unlike any other. Just a few in a bouquet can change the entire look, adding a fun twist with a bold pattern!
A great add in for a cascading bridal bouquet are Chinese lantern flowers. These warm colored flowers are very fragile but worth the precious care. This is a unique twist is perfect for a fall wedding, but beware the attractive bright orange seed pods of Chinese lanterns are poisonous but only if you eat them. So move your bouquet during the dining hours just in case and do not use this flower in centerpieces.
Haute Team Tip: Don’t shy away from shrubs!
The beauty berry is actually a shrub and during the winter create bright purple berries with beautiful green leaves. These would be great to add fullness to a centerpiece or to line a mantle. They are also known to repeal pesky misquotes, making them perfect for an outdoor ceremony.
Heather flower is also a shrub that adds great texture. This shrub looks very similar to lavender but doesn’t create such a strong smell which could irritate guests. It is also a great tip not to use strong smelling flowers around food. This could take away from the overall experience of the meal.
