A summer or a spring wedding would commonly use two or three kinds of blooms for the centerpiece. But a centerpiece for a fall wedding can be a mixture of differently textured blooms. For instance, you can use dahlias as the base flower. Dahlias come in a variety of hues. You can choose from the reds, the orange, plums and from any other tone. Then add crocosmia and coxcomb. The feathery texture of the crocosmia and the velvety flowers of the coxcomb would lend a dramatic effect to the centerpiece. Add Hypericum berries and viburnum for non-floral detail, fiddle head ferns and a sprig or two of lamb’s ear for contrasting color.
Roses still remains the popular option but for a fall wedding you may want to choose more dramatic and deeply hued blooms that will harmonize with the wedding color theme. Hydrangeas come in a variety of colors, choose the antique purples and greens and arrange them with lushly colored calla lilies.
