Are you seeing more rich earthy tones and cozy warm settings favourable to a fall wedding in your floral consultations? If you answered yes, there is a good reason for that! It is because Fall is becoming the most popular season to tie the knot in Canada.
In fact, a simple Google search reveals that many couples prefer the milder months of September and early October, with their warm colours resembling the harvest season. According to Wedding Wire, those getting married are drawn to a palette of “rich reds, deep burgundies, golds, plums, oranges, and various shades of greenery.” Soon-to-be-married couples are appreciating the variety of textures, abundant visuals, and the overall lushness that autumn offers. This allows them to infuse their special day with a distinct and personal touch.
Time to Start Thinking about Fall Weddings
Summer’s still sizzling, and we understand that you might still be focused on your upcoming late-summer events, so thinking about fall might feel a bit daunting (especially when it comes to weddings). The good news: we took it upon ourselves to have fall event inspiration created by our Featured Florist, Donald Yim, AIFD, to help you manage. With this in mind, let’s dive into the fall fun and get those creative floral gears turning!
Wedding Designs to Fall For
Donald Yim created a large, free-falling bouquet with a mix of colours that represent the fall season: brown, red, green, purple, ivory, and soft pink. Finally, the bouquet is beautifully held together by a ribbon in a warm autumn tone, creating a harmonious appearance that would be ideal for a bride seeking to embrace the essence of the fall season.

Autumn Centrepiece Arrangement
This coffee-coloured tiered vase gives a special fall touch, height, and weight to a design that will make it the talk of the wedding. While Donald incorporates timeless reds and orange colours of fall, he finds tonal balance by contrasting this symmetrical design with a splash of creamy white florals.
Using a more contemporary container, Donald lets his design run wild and finds colour harmony in the flower’s vibrant yellow, green, and orange tones. He then uses asymmetry to create a playful aesthetic that evokes an autumn essence. This design is certainly perfect for wedding couples wanting a less structured yet grounded look.

If you adore the beautiful colours of autumn, these vases could be the perfect choice for your fall wedding! Because these vases have a taller height, Donald opted for a more classic style to complement them. In this arrangement, he captures a sense of late summer romance and the bountiful harvest atmosphere. Naturally, this design aims to make a striking statement with its vibrant salmon Cremons, while its Shimmer roses add a gentle touch of elegance.

Take Home Gourds
These white ceramic gourds can serve as a lovely centrepiece that also works as a gift for your guests. Just put a few on your tables, and there you have it! Your guests can appreciate the charm of your fall wedding flowers both during dinner and later at home. For instance, Donald created a simple arrangement (you want to keep costs in mind since you’re giving them away). For this reason, he used just a single Toffee and Quicksand rose, floral sprays, and a pumpkin pick as the focal point.
