Wedding decorations expanding past roses
June 02, 2009
Because more people are opting to have their nuptials during fall or winter, which is usually cheaper than having the ceremony in the spring or summer, brides are expanding their horizons when it comes to picking certain colors for their bouquet.
Most brides-to-be are looking for their bouquets to match the season they are getting married in, which can then coordinate with the rest of the wedding day decorations.
Donna Theimer, a Joliet Junior College floral design instructor, told Morris Daily Herald that she enjoyed using different colors for fall bouquets, which can include apple red, gold, mocha, latte or chocolate.
"I like the food-named colors," Theimer said. "Pewter is also a beautiful color for fall."
The instructor also added that some brides have incorporated fake berries for their fall bouquet, giving them another way to stand out on their special day.
Since more people are scaling down the elements of their wedding in an effort to save money, going against the grain could help couples be more creative in their party planning.
Some have used fake flowers for their ceremony, allowing them to have whatever kind of flower they want despite the season.
