When we think of fall decor, most people immediately envision bold colors like orange, red, burgundy and golden yellow. However, we are seeing a strong change in the colors for fall wedding florals moving away from bold colors to a more muted version of fall. Earthy and soft shades like champagne, mocha, coffee and peach mixed with ivory and subdued green accents like Eucalyptus are at the core of this new look.
What are the ingredients for creating this design style?
Roses are the quintessential symbol of romance and are a perfect fit for a romantic fall wedding with a muted color palette. In this new trend, it's essential to choose the right shades and varieties of roses. Some of the top choices for this design style include:
A two-toned peach beauty that adds a touch of elegance to your arrangement
Known for its soft, blush hue and intricate petal structure, it's a favorite for a romantic ambiance.
A soft cinnamon pink color that complements the muted fall color palette beautifully.
A bi-color rose with tones of cinnamon, adding warmth to your floral designs.
A true coffee color that adds depth and richness to your arrangements.
A champagne color rose that enhances the soft, romantic look.
Roses in general are available in over 500 shades of color. And each year new varieties like those listed above are debuted that are ideal for a beachy fall color palette.
Mums are a quintessential fall flower that evokes feelings of fall in all of us. Traditionally available in shades of orange and yellow, mums have also evolved to match the new muted fall color trend. You can now find them in shades like champagne, copper, and soft orange. These soft-hued mums add a touch of elegance to your arrangements, perfect for a romantic fall wedding.
