Should I cut off the flowers from my sedum plants? They have gotten so heavy they are falling over.

You can, as it certainly wouldn't hurt the plant. Or you could wait until after the first frost and then cut the plant back to about a couple inches. Apply a fair amount of straw mulch to keep it well protected over winter. You can also choose to leave your sedum plants alone until spring (trimming back the same amount), allowing the foliage to provide the plant with winter protection.
