As the fall season of calm and cool transitions and autumn nuptials is soon to be ushered in, the David Austin Roses team thought our blog readers might enjoy learning about a few of the top wedding rose and flower trends evolving for the upcoming autumn.
Fall Trend #1: Jewel tones and nature-inspired colors accented by gold and yellow.
This bridesmaid’s bouquet (pictured below) displays the perfect balance of subtle boldness with the rich, butter yellow of Beatrice and soft buttermilk shade of Patience garden roses. When held in front of her sapphire blue dress, these natural hues unite in harmonized beauty.
A breath-taking example of the trend, these yellow hypericum berries combined with Edith’s unique, two-toned rose pink outer petals and ruffled, old-gold center petals capture the glow of a fall sunset and the sky as it turns to vivid pinks, purples and yellow.
This bride’s David Austin Roses Edith wedding rose bouquet exudes a touch of relaxed, autumn charm with carefully arranged accents of deep purple foliage and flowers. Her floral designer’s use of Edith’s rich gold tones contrasted with the purple accents and cut greenery made for an exquisite bouquet at this outdoor fall-season wedding.
Fall Trend #2: Large, voluminous flowers for bridal bouquets and wedding floral décor mixed with fall colors, foliage and berries.
An autumn-season bride cannot go wrong with the open, ruffled Patience rosettes! The rose’s 165 buttermilk petals per stem maintain chic neutrality as an accompaniment for the surrounding of most any fall wedding style and décor. This bride’s fall wedding bouquet (below) was designed with a fresh, simplistic theme to feature an abundance of large Patience roses, peppered with soft garden-parsley and tiny green flowerheads.
Another way bountiful, capacious blooms are trending for fall weddings involves the use of roses and mixed arrangements featuring varying color tones. Ask your floral designer to mix big blooms of numerous warm colors with soft hues and fine or delicate sprigs of foliage, as seen in this bridal bouquet of Juliet, Edith, Patience, and Charity roses from David Austin Roses. Blended with subtle red and yellow hypericum berries and small-petaled pink floral accents by Hothouse Designs, this bouquet is a tell-tale of the trend in mention.
Always trendy for fall weddings is the go-to option of the traditional autumn look, showcasing combinations of buttery-hued yellow, bold red and bright orange, with splashes of classic fall green and brown. The pastoral, outdoor wedding reception centerpiece (left) features Beatrice’s butter-yellow cupped rosettes with a fruity fall fragrance, alongside quintessential autumn-orange irises and dark red hypericum berries.
Fall Trend #3: Tall, five-tiered wedding cakes with cascading florals in seasonal colors, accentuated with formally embellished or casually textured white icing designs.
The bride and groom of this countryside wedding, which was hosted at the gorgeous J&D Farms wedding venue, opted for a five-tiered, buttercream cake with wispy, textured icing. The true beauty of the wedding cake design is in the tight “flower fall” of David Austin Roses’ Juliet, Patience, Charity, and Edith garden roses.
In a more formalized fall-season design, the five-tiered wedding cake (pictured below) displays elaborate embellishments of lacy design patterns, with 87-petaled Edith garden roses loosely placed in a semi-tight cascading effect, maintaining formality of design yet with a touch of informal flair.

David Austin Roses, a renowned English breeder of premium garden roses, today announced a strategic alliance with Your Event Solution (YES!), an Atlanta-based, award-winning event décor company. David Austin Roses provided more than 1,100 roses for the wedding, while Andy Hopper, AIFD, CFD, director of social events and head designer for YES!, coordinated the floral design and décor layout for the couple’s traditional-style wedding at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens, located in Birmingham, Ala.
The wedding’s design scheme incorporated a color palette of Tiffany blue and white, evoking a stunning, classic atmosphere. With the bride’s desire to make the color palette and large floral blossoms the wedding’s mainstay, David Austin Roses’ Patience garden rose was used throughout the ceremony and reception’s décor.
“The bride trusted me with the entire scope of her wedding design,” says Hopper. “She wanted the wedding to be an elegant party with ‘wow’ factors at every turn for her guests.”
With the help of David Austin Roses’ Patience rose, Hopper achieved the bride’s desired look with his artistic floral design creations. The roses were the focal point in several arrangements, including the bride’s and bridesmaids’ bouquets, an entryway wreath, table centerpieces, alter décor, and floral bouquets atop tall silver stands that lined the wedding aisle.
Hopper complemented Patience with other flowers such as white peony, white hydrangea, Queen Anne’s Lace, scabiosa pod, lily grass, and elaeagnus. The combination of the florals resulted in an exuberant design, which is a signature trait of Hopper’s.
“Andy Hopper knows and works with David Austin Roses on a consistent basis; his designs are brilliant, and we are happy to have him as an advocate and designer for our roses,” says David Austin, managing director at David Austin Roses.
The alliance partners will now co-promote each other’s businesses for public relations and relationship-building purposes. This includes post-wedding marketing campaigns, wherein each alliance partner will share details about the event and contributors by way of social media platforms and traditional editorial and magazine campaigns. Photos of the wedding will be posted during June on each company’s website and social networking channels.
