Summer weddings are bright, festive, and loud. There’s just this fun alluring vibe of getting married on the beach or by the cliffside. Guests can wear flipflops, the family can be chill, and you have tropical plants and flowers at your disposal.
Spring weddings are dainty and sweet. Think charming garden weddings under a vibrantly blushing tree and pastel-colors on dresses and blooming florals. It’s a breezy day with your dearest sweetheart.
In contrast to both popular wedding seasons, Autumn weddings are dramatic, earthy, and moody. If you want to walk down the aisle with a deeper color palette and in rusty shades, this is the season for you to tie the knot. Wedding flowers and centerpieces during the fall are created with the gorgeous foliage and textures of autumn.
You can go for soft and muted, or you can take the tawny-hued standards of fall. Bright orange, deep reds, and vibrant yellow blooms are the staple head-turners this season. If your wedding day is romantic and elegant, an Autumn affair helps you achieve that aesthetic.
The flowers in bloom may not be as plentiful as the other seasons. However, there are plenty of inspired designs and floral arrangements that can make your special day a luxurious celebration. With flowers like dahlias and gerberas thriving this time of the year, you can have bouquets and tablescapes that are fresh and inviting.
We’ve seen many weddings getting canceled or postponed this year. If you are planning to host a more intimate celebration or considering a less extravagant (less expensive) affair, take these wedding decorations ideas. Hopefully, it will inspire you to make the best out of this season and level up even the most minimal of affairs.
9 Floral Tabletop Ideas for your Wedding Day
1. Neutral Linens As Base
Lake a blank canvas before the artist’s touch, neutral linen is a perfect base for a gorgeous tablescape. Neutral-shade linens in beige or taupe can anchor the whole table setting. A neutral table cover may seem plain or flat, but with proper styling, it allows the table decor to pop without creating a garish contrast.
2. An Edible Tablescape
Candles, antique vases, or flowers don’t have to be your go-to centerpiece for an autumn wedding. Fall is harvest season. So having fresh fruits spread throughout the table, arranged along with your floral decor, or scattered about (open and ready for consumption) gives your special day a festive feel. If you are located in an area that has an abundance of local produce, make sure to incorporate them on your tablescape.
3. Fall Foliage on Your Table
If fresh edible fruits are not your type or not an accessible option, consider this classic styling hack. We’ve seen fall foliage on wedding tables many times before. It’s not only economical but also a truly stylish way to embrace the season. To change it up a bit, you can add your indoor plants as a peculiar centerpiece.
This tablescape by Casa De Perrin takes fall foliage styling in a fun direction by displaying the unique shapes and textures of fall’s main stars: the leaves.
This is perhaps the best wedding season you can pull off this look. The black candles set against gold trimming, red roses, peonies, and soft light is such an elegant backdrop for your wedding day. It’s both masculine and feminine and altogether timeless.
Flower crowns have become a little cliche, but floral chandeliers – never! If you want more floor space to dance and go around to greet the guests, a flower chandelier adds drama and pulls the space together. White empty rooms will look dramatically different and more intimate with a fall flower arrangement hanging in the center.
Fairytales and romance used to be represented by all things pink. But this plum and blush tablescape is a purple delight. For this effect, contract light and dark florals with a hint of greenery. For this table set up, wedding decorators used eggplant calla lilies, weeping podocarpus, peach roses, and baby blue eucalyptus.
The glassware and gold cutlery tie the look together. Plum and blush are the fall wedding palette that just sings whimsical and romantic.

7. Marry In Abundance
Go big or go home. A fall wedding doesn’t always have to be understated, muted, or rustic. It can also burst in abundance and volume. Choose florals that overflow and will have your guests taking pictures on all corners. Fill your wedding reception with gestural florals, fruits, and greeneries.
Take advantage of large spaces and create a visual experience. Play with heights and use topiaries and table decors that create multiple layers for your table setting.
Sometimes love isn’t firecrackers. Sometimes love just comes softly. What better way to declare your sweet love story then by keeping it simple and yet impactful. With just a few flower arrangements on your wedding party and sticking to your color palette, the couple truly takes the spotlight.
There’s no point in fighting it. Stick to the flowers that are in season. Fill your bouquets, tabletops, and aisle with the blooming gerberas, irises, alstroemeria, dahlias, calla lilies, and ranunculus.
These gorgeous florals will reward you with a wedding vibe that is bold, bewitching, deeply romantic, and stunningly elegant. Say I do this fall!
