When most of us think of seasonal flowers, our minds immediately go to spring and summer flowers while we tend to ignore the beauty and richness of fall flowers. The colours of fall wedding flowers will take your breath away – gold, copper, orange, red, burgundy, aubergine, plum, purple… What are fall flowers? Sunflowers, Hydrangeas, Asters, Dahlias, Japanese Anemones, Autumn Crocuses, Michaelmas Daisies, Chrysanthemums, Marigolds, Autumn Joy, Colchicum, Sternbergia, and Red Hot Pokers are just a few of the stunning fall blooms available to you. If you love the classics, roses, orchids, lilies, and gerberas are available all year long.
Wedding Bouquets: Mix richly coloured flowers to create a stunning look and wrap the stems in textured fabric, velvet sashes, or ribbons.
Boutonnieres: Add some colour with brightly coloured chrysanthemums. Have the stems wrapped in satin or ribbon for an elegant touch.
Wedding Arrangements: Use a mix of different flowers to coordinate with your colour scheme. Add non-floral accents like berries, ferns, greens, and twigs to add texture and visual interest.
Centrepieces: Some unique options are potted, flowering plants, cut flowers in baskets instead of vases, and unmatched pots and urns instead of glass vases.
Green Options: Select flowers that are grown locally. It may limit your choice a bit and cost you more money, but it will lessen your carbon footprint and support local business.
