There is no better way for a bride to obtain a fresh, feminine and natural look for the ceremony than by carrying a lush wedding bouquet. The flowers and colors you use have the power to add more uniqueness to your wedding apparel and this is why you have to be very careful with these two important aspects. You should never underestimate the power of the colors, because they can change completely the tonality of your look and provide you a more or less attractive wedding appearance.
When we’re talking about autumn, the first thing that comes to our mind is the gloomy mood we always experience during this season. But a fall wedding is not meant to feel neither grumpy, neither somber. You can chase away the sleepy mode with a vivid color palette. Don’t hesitate to use vivacious tones because they will save the day. The principal colors of the fall season are red, burgundy, orange and yellow.
Those who prefer something more whimsical can use metallic or darker hues, like gold, bronze, plum or other purple tones. Maroons and chocolate browns are also in for this season and they can look more elegant when paired with cream, beige, yellow, ivory or white shades. The bouquets we brought for today’s post look ravishingly unique. They can make unique alternatives to the classier styles.
Carrying a fashionable bouquet during the ceremony can provide a woman with more confidence in her own beauty and natural charm. Don’t forget that the perfect wedding-day look means having all the details up to date. The first bouquet features a romantic pink theme and it is a gorgeous choice for brides who want a fresh youthful look for the day. The blousy pale hues of the blooms make this arrangement look divine! Florists used Dutch garden roses, peonies and maple leaves.
This feminine bouquet doesn’t look very seasonal, but instead it shows a feminine Japanese flair. Moving on, we find a cheerful arrangement of both flowers & foliage. The big cactus and pom-pom dahlias and roses form a lavish colorful bouquet that looks autumnal. The oak leaves and acorns add a rustic touch to it. Opt for a rose & berry wedding bouquet like the one in the third image if you prefer something even more seasonal and elegant.
The orange roses form a stylish pair with the hypericum berries and lemon leave accents. This arrangement looks lively and fir for a romantic fall ceremony. The last arrangement is for a sophisticated bride who wants to incorporate the best of the harvest feel in her bouquet. This confection features rust mums, white roses, oak leaves and hyperricum berries.
Brides who are planning a modern wedding and wish to use unique flower arrangements for the décor can adopt the flower pot style. The idea of using plant pots instead of traditional floral decorations seems to us a great one, especially for couples who are going for the outdoors type of affair.
You guys can use the images we brought here for your inspiration and see what you can do to make the ceremony and reception a more inviting and memorable place to be for you and your wedding guests. Flowers are customary at a wedding and no one can do without.

Reality is that the number of these couples is constantly increasing. Everybody wants something different and outstanding for their wedding and they won’t settle for less, at least not now when the choices are so flatteringly unique.
If you are not into the balloon, garland or paper-made decorations, you can stop at our proposal. The flower pot style is definitely more fitted for mature brides and grooms who want something fresh, innovative, natural and yet elegant for the reception. The floral pots can fit different types of outdoors wedding events, but in general they look more appropriate for gardens, parks, backyards, forests or greenhouses. These are only a few of the most popular types of venues a couple can select for his green wedding.
If you want something more whimsy, you can opt for a woodland reception. Or, if you’re into the rustic style, you can plan a fun and cheerful wedding in the countryside at a farmhouse, in a barn or at a ranch. Whatever location you pick, the wedding décor has to be planned according to the season and color-scheme of the wedding. The eco-friendly affairs are in big trend and the flower-pot arrangements are the perfect match! But let’s see what designers propose us in this regard.
The first picture shows us a more romantic type of floral pot centerpiece created for a pink themed wedding. This lovely table setting features pink hyacinths arranged beautifully in a silver-plate tub. In fact, these blooms are planted in the tubs and this is they war they were bought. But you can create your own pots especially for the reception you’re organizing. We adore this dinner table set because it also displays white wooden pots filled with moss. The sweet pinkish theme is incorporated all over this dinner table set, starting with the tablecloth, and ending up with cherry fruits and napkins.

Selecting the most adequate color scheme for a wedding is never an easy thing to do – at least not for the brides or couples who are still clueless about the style, formality and theme they want for the wedding. Among all the coordinates of the wedding ceremony and reception, perhaps the season and the venue are the most important ones a bride has to consider when planning the décor. And the theme is by far the essential aspect they have to plan with care and attention so that it can make the wedding party and arrangements look eye-catchy, fashionable and one of a kind.
The main objective of decorating a wedding with flowers and colored items is to make the event a more inviting, warm and cheerful place for the wedding guests. Weddings are supposed to be joyful affairs and this is why color is the key to actually obtaining a successful event.
The colors are crucial in planning a wedding and they have an enormous power and influence on the way your reception is going to feel and look. The nuance you pick for the décor can make the ambiance more elegant, fresh, refined or dynamic. It all depends on the exact type of color palette you use. For instance, the soft pastel shades will make your event look warmer, natural and refined, while the darker tones will make the atmosphere more dramatic and energizing.
Colors set the mood and the formality of the wedding and they are powerful enough to lift up the atmosphere and make it more energizing and dynamic for the guests.

We love green because it is always energizing, dynamic and cheerful. This color can lift up any type of wedding atmosphere and make it more inviting, warm and jovial for the guests.
Green is also one of those colors associated with positive things, such as with: new beginnings, hope, optimism, fertility, energy, good mood, joy of living, happiness, trust, loyalty, health, protection, wealth, etc. These are only a few of the many attributes assigned to the green color that we believe can be convincing for the couples who are still skeptical about using this color in their wedding.

Now that you know all these, it will be easier to decide whether this theme is appropriate for a wedding or for your wedding.
When it comes to wedding decorations, green can do miracles if used with style.

In our opinion, weddings are supposed to be cheerful affairs and for that couples should opt for a more vibrant theme or color-scheme.

To obtain a dynamic atmosphere and yet a romantic mood, wed suggest you take into consideration using the pink theme.

Pink is feminine and sensual, and it can fit both formal and casual wedding ceremonies and receptions.

What is the most passionate and dramatic color a bride can choose for her wedding? Many of you will say red, and your answer will be correct. Although there are many other fabulous bold and sensual colors incorporated in contemporary weddings, such as violet, fuchsia or burnt orange, red remains the favorite color of many romantic classic and modern brides. And since we’re planning on discussion about red weddings, we promise you a few gorgeous types of red wedding flower centerpieces in the next pictures.
In our opinion, red will always be the most romantic color for weddings, no matter how many other vibrant and seducing themes will emerge in this field. Just as white, or blue, red is a timeless color for weddings and it will never fall out of fashion. Those who want to replace it will never manage to substitute its richness, luxury and opulence. You can perhaps opt for a more modern alternative – like purple, but you will never obtain the same powerful effect. Red is versatile and it can fit all types of weddings: casual or formal, in or outdoors, simple or extravagant, classic, vintage or contemporary, natural or glamorous, intimate or ample.
Unfortunately, there are still many brides and grooms who believe that Red is an old-fashion color that can no longer work or fit a modern wedding. Well, let us prove you that you are wrong on this one! Red can still look trendy and fashionable if used with style. And these fabulous red wedding floral centerpieces we’re showing here are great examples in this regard. With a little bit of creativity, the red theme can help any bride create a stunning couture décor for a 2011 wedding! When you work with such a traditional color as red, you have to pay more attention to the flowers you’re planning on using.
The first picture show us a few strikingly beautiful rose centerpieces. Although roses are also traditional, they can make an eye-catchy and unique pose when used in simple and chic recipients. The all-white tablescape and the classy white vases add a touch of elegance and finesse that changes completely the conservative and predictable appearance of roses. The gradient color palette of crimson, fuchsia and deep red used for the blooms is also inedited. There you have it: a traditional color and flower looking so trendy!
The second arrangement looks even more fashionable! This is a futuristic type of wedding centerpiece created with a couture red and gray theme. The designers used a bunch of red and pink peonies, tulips, roses, berries and dusty miller. The red candles and the gray pillar holders look ravishing and breathtakingly beautiful!
Planning the wedding decoration is perhaps the most exciting and delightful part of a wedding. And we say this because brides adore matching colors, shopping for flowers and accessories that can make their wedding ceremony and reception a fantasy land. It’s always a pleasure to create beautiful things for a wedding for both the designers and also for the couples themselves.
There are many brides and grooms who decide to adopt the DIY method for the wedding decoration and we must admit that it is not a bad idea at all!

You can use an additional color to make the theme even more appealing and diversified. Purple goes fabulously well next to shades of yellow, lime green, silver or gold, dark red and black.
