Autumn is a great time of year to get married, especially for the flowers! The cooler weather often means that flowers will last longer and you can be more adventurous in their styling - think oversized bouquets, large floral arches and even mossy table runners. Filled with rich colours and textures, Autumn flowers truly capture the spirit of the season—not to mention the romance of your wedding day.
Bright red, orange, and yellow blooms all make for major head-turners, and you can even pare them down with greenery for a sleek seasonal contrast. In terms of flower varieties; Dahlias, zinnias, scabiosa, and sunflowers are some of your best bets for Autumn wedding flowers.
Calla lilies also make a wonderful choice for autumn weddings adding structure to designs while tone roses and leucospermum bring textural notes to bouquets and arrangements. For added interest and a nod to Halloween, ask your florist to include berries and miniature squashes.
Enhance a rustic wedding day with a corresponding stack of stems—go wild with ethereal additions like textured grasses, or wildflowers that look straight out of a field.
For brides looking for an alternative to the traditional autumnal colour palette of tawny orange and russet reds, muted colours are definite favourites of the season. White, green, and grey is a colour scheme which is coming through as key for the time of year.
No matter your bouquet vibe, top off the look with a dashing piece of ribbon or velvet and you’re officially aisle-ready.
