4 Fall-Themed Wedding Flower Bouquet Ideas, Lakeville, Connecticut

Though “wedding season” traditionally runs from late spring to midsummer, many brides opt for the crisp weather and warm colors of fall for their backdrop. Though it can be challenging to find local seasonal flowers this time of year, several species that bloom late in the year evoke the autumn palette beautifully. To help inspire your wedding flower design, read on about the late bloomers many florists incorporate in fall wedding arrangements.

Fall Wedding Flower Bouquets

1. Hydrangeas

Hydrangeas are a common feature in fall wedding floral arrangements. Although they are primarily spring and summer plants, some varieties bloom during autumn months, too. Since they don’t have fragrances that would overpower food, they’re ideal for decorating reception tables. To make the flowers pop, florists often use deep-colored hydrangea foliage as filler elements in bouquets and centerpieces.

2. Dahlias

Their wide variety of colors evoke the warm hues of autumn foliage. However, if you prefer a pastel palette, dahlias also come in softer shades like white, pink and lavender.

3. Asters

Asters bloom in late summer and fall and are a surprising departure from typical wedding flowers. For an all-white seasonal arrangement, combine white asters with freesia, anemones, and snowberries. 

4. Sunflowers

The bright yellow color of a sunflower perfectly offsets the yellow and orange tones of fall leaves. Typically yellow, sunflowers come in many colors and is a always focal in any floral arrangement. Add fresh flowers like kale and hydrangeas, with a fountains of amaranthus or grasses for a dramatic autumn bouquet.
