This real wedding had beautiful details that could fit a fall theme wedding as well as a luscious summer celebration.
Rachel and Brett got married in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. Gorgeous flowers and pomanders adorned the terrace.
They simulated a wedding arch with dried white branches at the altar, creating a natural and elegant focal point.
The flowers were white and orange, creating a soft balance with the green fillings of the arrangements. The look was flowy and natural—very earthy and classy.
The bridesmaids wore brown corset dresses and the groomsman wore stylish black suits. The reception was indoors, and the brown earthy theme was felt in every corner.
The wedding table decorations were based on a natural earthy look, yet some specific touches provided a tropical feeling as well.
Gold charger plates were the perfect contrast for the brown table linens. There was also a mix of short and tall centerpieces.
The tall centerpieces were made with manzanita branches decorated with green cymbidium orchids and hanging tea lights.
The shorter version mirrored the style of the outside pomanders. Tea lights surrounded gorgeous white, pale brown and green flowers arranged in a bouquet form for a romantic look.
The tiered wedding cake was adorned with cascading cymbidium orchids, creating a unique tropical feel to the fall-colored palette.
Brett and Rachel created a stylish and graceful celebration. You can take some tips and budget-friendly wedding ideas from them to incorporate at your own wedding, no matter what your theme or colors are.
Buying flowers in bulk will help you get great discounts and stay within your budget. The cymbidium orchid was the “luxury item” in their floral decorations, but if you notice, they did not use it everywhere, just in small details to create a “wow” factor.
Instead, other rich seasonal flowers were used for the pomanders and bouquets. Using flowers that are in season or native to your area can also help you save big bucks.
Another great tip for staying within budget is to mix the flower arrangements. While they all have the same style, it is a known fact that the shorter versions of the arrangements will cost less than the taller ones.
Use these tips and ideas to your advantage and plan a gorgeous brown theme wedding of your own!
