Wedding Flowers Cambridge - Displays for an Autumn Wedding
Autumn it is a wonderful time of year to get married as it is the time when leaves turn and fall creating a blanket of colour. If you are choosing wedding flowers for a Cambridge wedding, there are some astounding venues all over the region from pretty retreats overlooking the river to grand country houses.
If you are taking your wedding vows in September, October or November, you may want to take inspiration from nature and choose autumn colours or seasonal flowers. Here we shall look at five ideas for wedding flowers in Cambridge, this autumn.
When choosing flowers for your autumn wedding, consider the meanings of the colours when making your choice. Here's our at a glance guide to help you pick the right colours for you.
Orange denotes happiness, delight, desire and enthusiasm. Red is the colour of love and passion. Yellow means bliss and happiness. Brown is a stable, grounded colour. Green represents good luck and gold means health and wealth.
If you are having an autumn wedding, it may be that you will want to opt for flowers in season such as geraniums, sunflowers, roses, gerbera, gladioli, orchids, snapdragons or dahlias.
Gerberas and orchids are a great choice as they represent beauty; gladioli means strength of character; snapdragons represent desire; sunflowers mean purity of thought and roses, which are a traditional choice, represent love.
Flowers of the Month
For another take on flowers and their meanings, if you like symbolism, you can also choose flowers that represent your birth month or the month your nuptials.
Morning Glory, for instance, is a September flower; Calendula is a flower for October; and Chrysanthemum are associated with November and mean faithfulness. You may want to choose flowers in your bouquet or arrangements that represent the birth months of you and your partner.
If you are choosing flower displays for an autumn wedding, whether you want contemporary or traditional arrangements, there are all sorts of pretty touches we can provide to create out of the ordinary displays.
One idea is to use berries in the bouquets or table arrangements. Berries, such as Hypericum, are available year round and come in a vast range of colours including green, cream orange and brown.
For a rustic feel to your autumn wedding, you may want to use twigs or even pine cones in your table arrangements.
If you are looking for a more subtle effect and want a bouquet of white flowers, a ribbon in an autumn colour adds an elegant touch to your hand tie and still creates a seasonal feel.
