October is the most popular wedding month for Florists.It’s true that some couples opt for other colors for their Fallweddings; however the majority of the weddings we are asked to design are in the Fall color scheme—all on the Warm side of the color wheel, or with a touch of fall colors added to a more neutral color scheme. Fall-colored flowers have gained popularity paired with Cooler color schemes when the right color-combinations are used. So yes—you CAN have your lavendar flowers AND have your Fall flowers too in the same bouquet! Dress and table linen color are the most important factors when choosing the contrasting colors that work with fall-colored flowers.
