My wedding will be coral, grey and white. It’s October, but I really wasn’t going for the typical reds-oranges-browns-and yellows-colored fall wedding BUT it will be country themed. We are having hay bales with cloth covering them for seats, mason jars, baby’s breath..ect. but we are trying to keep it from being too redneck or too fall themed.
I was stressing about what to use for the end of the hay bale aisles(BTW, these are only for the ceremony, not the reception. We will have acual seats for the reception). Orgininally I said some metal buckets filled with flowers, but learned real fast how costly that would get. So my Fiance came up with the idea of using white pumpkins (possibly painting them white?) and maybe scattering some wild flowers around them.
I am just lost on what to do. I’m worried the ceremony will just look all over the place. What does everyone else think?!

If you’re trying to prevent it from being too fall-themed, I would avoid end-of-the-aisle pumpkins.

what about mums? they are fallish but also cheap flowers. They come in a variety of colors (cream, white, corals). Its less fall-ish than a pumpkin and would likely cost the same. (Mums in the fall are fairly cheap for big planters of them) you can find them at home depot, lowes etc for like 8-12 bucks and you could get buckets or some other creative container to put them in.

I love pumpkins! Especially when you hollow them out and put floral arrangements in them!

I think white pumpkins would look great!

Sierrap93: Rather than have something at the end of each aisle hay bale, I would do a grouping at the entrance of the aisle and on either side of the altar area.
You could spray paint a monogram or use a vinyl decal.

I think both painted pumpkins (white or other colors) or mums are a great idea. You can get mums fairly cheaply and easily in October, and at least from my experience with them, they are not easy to kill. Maybe have the mums at the end of the aisles for the ceremony, and get some fun pumpkins for your reception? You could even paint them gold – metallics always look festive and a bit fancy – or carve them with text to say things like “Mr. and Mrs.” or with your wedding date.
