Fall weddings have an ambiance all their own. The cooler weather and change of seasons gives you the opportunity to utilize some less traditional flowers in the ceremony and at the wedding reception. As the official flower of November, the versatile chrysanthemum is available year round, but their warm colors make beautiful fall bridal bouquets and centerpieces.
The chrysanthemum comes in many hues and varieties, and so will match nearly every color scheme and wedding décor. As an added bonus, they are a relatively inexpensive flower, so can be used in abundance for your wedding day. Pompon or button mums, spider and anemone mums – these unique shapes add interest and glamour to your wedding looks.
The chrysanthemum symbolizes optimism and joy, making it a perfectly meaningful bloom for a wedding. The vivid chrysanthemum makes a stunning monochromatic bouquet, while poms or buttons can be used for splashes of contrasting color in larger arrangements. Consider using the daisy-type mums for standalone bouquets. Orange, red and yellow mums make festive fall décor for centerpieces, head tables and altar flowers; add fall accents like cattails, foliage and willow for authentic details. As we move into the Christmas season, white chrysanthemums interspersed in red roses has a romantic flair; switch the palette with a spray of white chrysanthemums embellished with red holly berries.
