Autumnal vibes

Autumnal vibes

Q We're having an autumnal-themed wedding and are looking for flowers to reflect the season; what would you suggest?
A Sarah Allen says: I encourage my clients to embrace autumn's golden foliage, rich berry tones, dried grasses and seed heads. However, your colour palette doesn't have to be intense or garish. It's all about using a careful combination of colours and textures to achieve a colour palette that suits your style and venue. Think seasonal flowers such as sedum, Dahlias, hydrangeas, amaranthus and grasses such as miscanthus paired with late-season garden roses available in rich and muted autumnal shades. I also suggest lots of candlelight this time of year and avoid crisp white table linen. Instead, consider hiring tablecloths and napkins in latte, sage or caramel tones. Since autumn's a time for cosiness and warmth, these shades are far more complementary to autumnal floral designs.
