Orange is one of the signature colors of the fall season. The rich, fiery hue makes an excellent choice for the wedding flowers, and combines beautifully with many other seasonal colors, such as brown, golden yellow, and russet red. These are some ideas for gorgeous orange bouquets for autumn weddings.
There are certain flowers which
simply say "fall is here!". Among them are mums, asters, and zinnias.
For a magnificent burst of color, use brilliant zinnias in vibrant
shades of red, orange, and yellow - all one single blossom! They combine
marvelously with mums in rusty orange hues, both the pom-pom and daisy
varieties of mums. If you wish to break up the intense colors just a
touch, add in some stems of white asters. The finished bouquets will
have captured the essence of fall, and would be perfect for a rustic
barn wedding. Tie them with raffia ribbon for a natural effect. They
would look fantastic with textured bridesmaid dresses, such as a straw
colored shantung or mocha dupioni. Add bridesmaid jewelry gifts in
bronze crystals or pearls to complete the look.
can also be very sophisticated. Rich shades of orange orchids would be
striking for an upscale fall celebration. From the subtle tint of orange
dendrobium orchids to the vibrance of mokara orchids to exotic
cattleyas, there are a huge number or varieties which are available in
shades of orange. Shades of cream combine beautifully with creamsicle
tinted orchids. Accents of light green would be a nice contrast to the
warm orange tones. A dramatic cascade of orchids blossoms would be
stunning for a black tie wedding, while a smaller clutch of blooms would
be chic and sophisticated. Imagine how striking the bride and her
attendants would look carrying these impressive bouquets! They would be
an excellent choice with fashion forward dresses; custom bridesmaid
jewelry would be great gifts to round out the ensembles.
are a traditionalist, consider timeless bouquets of roses in hues such
as coral, vivid orange, or rust. Orange roses symbolize passion and
enthusiasm, which makes them a fantastic wedding flower. Roses always
look elegant when arranged in the traditional round nosegay shape. This
classic style of bouquet is equally appropriate for day or evening
weddings, which makes it as versatile as it is beautiful. Accents such
as russet red hypericum berries or clear crystals are a nice touch when
you want to layer in another element with the roses.
sophisticated blossom for an orange wedding bouquet is the mini calla
lily. They come in stunning shades like mango, copper, apricot, brick,
and a rich glowing orange. Many of the varieties are variegated, with
several shades on each individual blossom. Bundle a round bouquet of
mini calla lilies for bridal flowers which are simple in form, yet
ultra-stylish. The mini calla lilies can also be used to create dramatic
mixed bouquets with accent colors such as golden yellow and a deep,
deep burgundy. Add seasonal extras such as hanging Chinese lantern pods
to create unforgettable bouquets for your autumn wedding.
