So you’re getting married in the fall…
What better time to get married than autumn? After all, it is the year’s last, loveliest smile.
Surprise, surprise! We’re talking all things fall wedding flowers!
When it comes to fall wedding flowers, it can get a bit hard to narrow down your choices—we know, they’re just all so beautiful *cries*.
Not to mention, there’s so many themes to choose from—dark and moody, light and airy, green and fresh—the list goes on and on.
Which is why….
*drum roll, please*
Dahlias are a classic wedding flower that just so happen to come in the prettiest autumn hues.
Anyone can identify a dahlia. Their look is completely unique and they provide one of the most spectacular blooms in the flower kingdom. They come in countless sizes and colors, but each is distinct with their spike-like petals and vibrant colors.
The Victorians even used the dahlia as a symbol for an everlasting bond between a couple—could there be a more perfect wedding flower?
Roses, the world’s most popular flower, coming in just about every color imaginable and expressing a vast range of emotions—most importantly— true love.
As Emma Goldman famously said, “I’d rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck.” But who says we can’t have both!?
Hanging amaranthus is an iconic fall wedding staple. Although it’s not the most well-known wedding bloom, it’s definitely one you don’t want to skim over.
Not only do these beauties provide a lush, cascading effect, but they come in a variety of fall colors—from deep magenta to green to classic white.
Chrysanthemums—November’s official flower of the month— is yet another fall staple that’s absolutely perfect for your fall wedding bouquet!
They are hardy and long-lasting, which makes them a strong and durable bloom you know will hold up.
Currently, there are around 30 species of chrysanthemum. It’s actually one of the most cultivated flowers in the world. Its popularity has grown to the point that it is considered the true queen of autumn flowers!
Succulents are perfect for any bride looking for a subtle statement piece in their bouquet.
These beauties have become a wedding favorite for both florists and brides due to their durability, super easy to work with, and the best part? They add a surprising pop of color to every arrangement.
Eucalyptus, whether you prefer a chunkier, fragrant sort or a more delicate, ‘drapey’ variety (otherwise known as seeded eucalyptus), both will add a beautiful touch of elegance to your bridal bouquet.
AND you’ll get to smell the calming scent of eucalyptus the whole way down the aisle—to help with any nerves or stage fright!
Oh, anemone, so sweet, so pure.
The anemone has so many different meanings, but one of our favorites is fairies…yup, fairies.
Anemones are a symbol of fairies and their world of twilight.
Legend has it; fairy folk are believed to hide in the anemone’s petals and close them up when there is a threat of rain—if that’s true, at least you’ll know if a storm’s a brewin’ on your big day!
Other than that, they’re simply one of the most beautiful flowers around, we may be biased.
Ranging from white to light pink, to deep burgundy, astilbe is another wedding favorite (and yes, again, we are very biased).
These unique blooms add a stunning wildflower look to any bouquet.
These beautiful flowers are not only a favorite of ours, but also butterflies far and wide! If you’re looking for a truly authentic Cinderella moment at your wedding, astilbe is a must-have.
Arguably, one of the most beautiful blooms around—the ranunculus is a wedding-season favorite!
Ranunculus symbolizes charm, attractiveness, and having a crush on someone—perfect for reliving the beginning of you and your hunny’s relationship on your big day!
These fluffy blooms come in so many beautiful colors, they’ll match just about any color scheme!
Oh, snap! You didn’t think we forgot about snapdragons, did you?
In the Victorian era, messages from lovers were secretly sent through flowers (sound familiar?). A true classic!
Their tall height and unique shape will add depth and drama to any bouquet!
