When it comes to fall floral wedding tips, texture is your best friend. Texture adds depth and tactile interest, elevating your floral design to look interesting from every angle. Here are some ways to incorporate texture into your fall wedding florals:

PLAY WITH HEIGHT AND DEPTH

Vary the height of your floral elements and layer foliage to create a dynamic visual effect. Adding trailing elements like ivy or vines can add a sense of movement to your arrangements.

USE CONTAINERS WITH TEXTURE

Seek out containers with interesting textures, such as woven, rough clay, or textured metal. The container’s texture can enhance your design and create cohesion.

MIX AND MATCH CONTAINERS

Use containers with different textures, sizes, and colors, especially when arranging multiple displays on one table. Vary container heights and widths for a dimensional and layered effect.

MIX AND MATCH FLORAL TEXTURES

Mixing hard and soft textures creates an interesting contrast that grabs attention and adds depth. Combining smooth and rough textures achieves a pleasing balance that looks visually appealing.

CONTRASTING FOLIAGE

Experiment with a variety of contrasting foliage, such as ferns, colorful leaves, eucalyptus, or ornamental grasses to add texture and personality.

2. DON’T BE AFRAID TO EMBRACE COOL TONES

While traditional fall wedding color palettes often include warm hues like red, orange, and yellow, don’t hesitate to break from the norm and explore cool tones.

Darker cool tones can bring a deep and moody atmosphere to your wedding, while softer cool tones remind us of the cold winter months just around the corner. We love incorporating blue, green, and purple florals to create a striking contrast. Cool-toned florals can be especially enchanting in coastal venues, as they complement the ocean’s colors and ambiance.

3. INCORPORATE DRIED ELEMENTS

Adding dried elements to your fall wedding florals can elevate their texture, enhance color palettes, and lend structural support to your arrangements. They also allow you to incorporate grasses, flowers, and foliage that may not be in season during the fall. Consider using dried foliage, pampas grass, dried wildflowers, twigs, branches, and even dried fruits for a unique, edgy, and effortlessly chic look.

4. AVOID RELYING ON FALL COLORED FOLIAGE

While fall-colored foliage is undeniably beautiful, it’s important to be mindful of its time-sensitive nature, particularly in regions like New England. Instead of relying solely on these colors, trust your florist to present alternative seasonal florals that offer the same texture and profile while remaining cohesive.

STYLED FRESH PRODUCE AND TOMATO PLANTS

Incorporating fresh produce and tomato plants into your arrangements can add a unique and unexpected twist to your fall florals, celebrating the harvest season.

FALL TEXTURAL FLORAL INSTALLATIONS

Textural floral installations, such as hanging floral chandeliers or arches adorned with fall foliage and blooms can transform your wedding venue into a captivating autumn wonderland.

DRIED STEMS

Dried stems, whether used as standalone elements or intertwined with fresh blooms, bring a whole new texture to wedding flowers that you just can’t achieve with fresh florals alone.

As you plan your fall wedding, remember that your florals are a canvas to express your unique vision and capture the essence of the season. By embracing texture, exploring cool tones, incorporating dried elements, and trusting your florists’ expertise, you can create a memorable and enchanting floral display that perfectly captures the beauty of fall. We hope these fall wedding tips inspire you to be creative and take your fall wedding florals to the next level.
