Say it With Flowers

Although summer is the season most famed for the variety of its wedding flowers, there are still plenty of incredible options for flowers if you choose to have a rustic-style autumnal wedding. Fiddle fern has a wonderful rustic charm, and looks incredible teamed with rust and orange flowers. Alternatively you can opt for thistles for a natural feel or orange calla lilies if you want something very bright. Incorporate plenty of leaves and greenery to give the effect of bringing the outside in, and let nature be the driving force of your rustic autumnal wedding. It will look so effective, and will have people talking for months afterwards!

Wedding Favor Ideas

The incredible variety of options available for rustic fall wedding favors is almost endless. We love the idea of evergreen favors: write a personalized message to each guest and they can then plant the card and grow a beautiful tree to honor your special day. Alternatively, if you want something a little more colorful, why not try Iris flower bulbs which have a beautiful color and can be presented in either gift boxes or miniature burlap sacks. You can extend this favour into your theme, as burlap could be used to make napkin rings, be incorporated into your table centerpieces, and you could even use burlap table clothes if you want a really rustic-looking occasion. And don’t forget the power of herbs: they make amazing favors as well as adding wonderful fragrance to bouquets and floral displays.

    Fall in Love

    Outdoor weddings held during the fall are breathtaking and magical. If your wedding venue has trees that brim with windswept fall foliage, then you are in for an enchantingly romantic affair.

    Here are amazing ideas on how to integrate trees and other elements of autumn into a stunning wedding.

    Morning wedding set in an orchard, a vineyard, or a barn

    Say your vows under the trees as your friends and family look on. The natural golden light shimmers behind the tree branches. Fallen leaves that showcase autumn’s rich colors litter the ground. Have your guests eat while they take in their surroundings that are full of yellowing trees.

    Bring the trees inside

    If you can’t have an outdoor wedding, then go ahead and rent tree saplings and adorn them with lights. Line the aisle with potted trees. You can also use tree saplings as high-impact centerpieces. Surround them with amber candles for a captivating twilight glow. If the wedding reception area is small, then stick to one or two gorgeously detailed “indoor” tree arrangements.

    Color schemes

    Fall colors include purple, chocolate, crimson, orange, moss green, and burgundy. Gold and crimson look bold and elegant when used together.

    Add plenty of greenery in your bouquets for an earthy effect. Use fiddlehead ferns as accents.

    For the décor at the back of your guests’ chairs, mix bare branches with flowers. The delicate minimalist lines of branches add charm and character.

    Wedding invitations and place cards

    Use recycled paper and embossed leaf or tree motifs for your wedding invites. Stick the escort cards that bear your guests names onto mini pumpkins. This reinforces your outdoor autumnal theme.
