The cool, comfortable weather and eye-catching, colorful foliage give many couples reasons to tie the knot in autumn. An electric array of flowers in both light and dark tones are in bloom, making the creation of striking fall floral arrangements a welcome challenge. For ideas to add to your inspiration board, below are three stunning flowers to use in fall nuptials.
3 Flowers Ideal for Autumn Weddings
1. Calla Lily
Calla lilies, with their long, slender stems and large petals, resemble the bell of a trumpet. Their length is considered a bonus by many floral designers. You can tie a calla lily to the backs of chairs, using lace, mesh, or linen ribbons. As the lilies are available in shades of yellow, orange, purple, and pink, you’ll find a hue to match your event.
Dahlias are large, showy flowers that bloom in summer and fall. Closely related to sunflowers, dahlias have petals that flare out in layers, resembling angular powder puffs. With a variety of sizes available, they can be a focal point in a bridal bouquet or the main attraction in table centerpieces. The color selection of dahlias is also diverse, with oranges and reds complementing the warm, earthy tones of fall wedding palettes. The rich purples and deep jewel tones of dahlias stand out against the light and neutral tones of secondary buds and greenery.
Chrysanthemums are like daisies but a little showier. Those that bloom in fall carry soft cream, golden yellow, dark red, and powdery purple pigments. They pair nicely with hydrangeas for wedding centerpieces. A chrysanthemum can also be incorporated into a bride’s floral headpiece.
