However, if you use some fall flowers that match the color scheme of the black dress that you will be wearing, you can make the cake look just as scary as you would think. Fall flowers such as hydrangeas, dahlias, and even some black fall flowers such as mums, berries, and acorns will look fantastic as the base of your fall wedding cake. The only problem will be that you might not have enough guests to eat the entire cake!
