Calla lilies are a popular wedding flower for fall and winter weddings, and for good reason. These flowers come in a variety of colors (including deep, almost-black burgundy, orange, lavender, and – our favorite – cream with a purple center), and create a chic and elegant look. From bouquets to centerpieces to boutonnieres, calla lilies can be used in a variety of arrangements throughout your wedding day. Check out these 20 pretty designs featuring calla lilies in our gallery here.

Have you ever heard of incorporating accents such as scabiosa pods, poppy pods, lotus pods, fiddlehead fern curls, silver brunia balls, or air plants? We didn’t, but our Flowers Editor sure did. Each and every one adds volume, texture, and a little extra character to your floral arrangements. See more photos in WeddingWire’s FallBook 2014 here.

Not sure which bridal bouquet suits you best? Our Flowers Editor can name seven tried-and-true styles that can be seen time and time again — posy (smaller, petite option that’s easier to hold), nosegay (arranged into a dense, dome shape because stems are cut to the same length), hand-tied (gives off a more “just-picked” vibe), pageant (meant to rest on one arm), composite (imagine a single, oversized bloom), biedermeier (comprised of concentric rings) , and cascading (creates a waterfall effect).

Tired of those blue mason jars or mercury glass votives? It’s still possible to pull together a wow-worthy table that suits your wedding style without them! Our Flowers Editor has come up with 8 clever centerpieces ideas that you can put a fun twist on. Consider tea tins, lanterns, galvanized metal buckets, ginger jars, weathered, antique pitchers, wooden crates, clay planters, and/or recycled bottles. Bonus: You can keep them for your newly-purchased or -rented home afterwards. See more photos here.
