The fall is like no other time of the year; and fall weddings are just as special. As summer heat gives way to crisp autumn days, brides have an opportunity to showcase different varieties of seasonal flowers, incorporating them into bouquets and floral arrangements. The official flower of November is the chrysanthemum – although available all year long, the unique colors and shapes make them an integral part of innovative fall bouquets and venue décor.
As the chrysanthemum has over 2,000 varieties, you will have no problem finding the perfect flower to perfectly set off any wedding theme and color palette. The versatile bloom also has an added perk – in comparison to other lavish, large flowers, such as peonies; or exotic species, like lilies – the mum is fairly inexpensive. Spider and anemone mums, in vibrant colors and unique shapes add intrigue and fun to your wedding bouquet. Add other bold flowers of fall, and you have an uncommon floral piece not soon forgotten.
The chrysanthemum’s meaning signifies two appropriate emotions for a wedding day – optimism and joy. With so many vivid choices, the chrysanthemum makes a striking monochromatic arrangement, while poms or buttons make perfect detail or accent flowers in larger bouquets. Mums are one of the few flowers that actually bloom in shades of green. Reminiscent of daisies and asters, a green mum surrounded with traditional white flowers such as roses, lilies or hydrangea makes a meadow-perfect bridal bouquet.
