September represents the beginning of autumn and is the moment when the nature gives us its best, meaning vegetables and fruits. This is why a wedding organized in September should not miss the opportunity of using vegetables and fruits as wedding centerpieces or decorations.
Let's take for example berries and sweets made from berries. A wedding cake made from these fruits will clearly be the attraction of a September wedding, but also some lovely berry decorations will look great, especially if they will be combined with flowers and candles. An interesting idea would be to place berries, cut directly from a tree, on your guest tables, like you see in the above image.
Another idea that involves berries is to use Texas baskets, in which to place all sorts of fruits: strawberries, blackberries, cranberries and so on. These berries can be placed on tables as centerpieces or in front of every guest, situation in which the bride and groom can offer them as wedding favors. In this second case, it would be recommended to also use some calligraphed papers, where to write the name of the guest that will receive that wedding favor. Not only that wedding guests will be amused by the baskets and their contents, but they will also find their way to the table more rapidly, especially if their name is written in large characters.
And at the end, we present the idea of using September flowers for the bridal bouquet. The mix of blooms and fruits that can be harvested in September will add a delicate fragrance to the wedding bouquet, that will mesmerize everybody at the wedding. We recommend star-like tweedia, Fair Bianca roses and Canterbury bells combined with sweet peas and strawberries. A final touch can be offered by the fluttery green silk-satin ribbon, which has the same tone as the leaves of the bridal bouquet.
Nowadays, everybody is looking for affordable wedding centerpieces. If you are included in this category of people that looks for cheap products, yet attractive and resistant, you will love this article, because here you will see some of the cheapest wedding centerpieces.
If you plan a summer wedding, you don't have to worry too much that you will pay a fortune on your flowers. However, if your wedding will take place in the wintertime, you should start saving, because flowers bought in this season are in some cases, extremely expensive, like you would pay for flowers made from gold, not for actual flowers.
Let's take for example carnations. Vibrant red carnations, arranged in a beautiful centerpiece along with a porcelain vase and a crimson silk dupioni bow. Flowers like this are less than $15 during summer and can reach $50 during winter.
Fruit centerpieces are also good for a summer wedding, only that this time, they can make a terrific impression at an autumn wedding as well. Try using some clementines, navel oranges, and kumquats in combination with white gardenias, lemon leaves and stephanotis.
If you do not like to cut flowers from your garden, nor to use flowers from a flower shop, use the idea of creating your own paper flowers or decorations. What you see in the above image are some paper magnolias, that are an excellent way to incorporate flowers into an eye-popping centerpiece. The issue that can occur here is that they are not capable of spreading any aroma, since they are fake flowers; nevertheless, this problem can be easily solved, because in stores you can find sprays that can be used on fabric flowers, and which manage to give these flowers the possibility of spreading various aromas. For example, you can buy a spray with aroma or daffodils or of carnations. Obviously, in this case, you should buy a spray suitable for magnolias.

A lovely idea that incorporates flowers is to use classic white roses and lush greenery combined in a beautiful arrangement, like the one you see above. This decorative mix includes a large, but not tall, vase where flowers are placed and also a tray made from aluminium or stainless steel.
