Wedding Flowers that are in Season During Autumn

Mix and match some of these beautiful autumn flowers for your fall wedding:

Dahlias

Dahlias bloom through the early fall and are a staple for many autumn bridal arrangements. The color choices are varied, letting you curate the perfect tone to complement your décor. Dahlias can be deep burgundy, ivory, pale blush, and even vibrant yellow.

Amaranthus

Amaranthus is a perennial plant that is popular in waterfall bouquets, centerpieces, arches, and floral arrangements. The cascading flowers are a subtle crimson-purple color.

Sunflowers

Sunflowers bloom through October in most parts of the country, making this bloom a terrific option for early autumn weddings. They pair beautifully with smaller flowers in subtle hues, as well as fall plants and greenery like monstera leaves and fragrant eucalyptus or rosemary.

Marigolds

Marigolds look like miniature carnations with their pom-pom blooms, and come in a range of lovely autumnal shades, including gold, burnt orange, and red. These pretty flowers work beautifully in hanging floral displays, flower crowns, and boutonnieres. Paired with other burnished foliage, marigolds create a sophisticated fall wedding palette.

Gerbera daisies

Gerbera daisies are a fabulous choice for more casual or Boho-themed fall weddings. They can be mixed with other blooms and accent greenery for bridal bouquets and come in a wide variety of colors, from fuchsia and white to deep yellow and bold orange.

Yarrow

Yarrow, with its petite blooms, resembles Queen Anne’s lace. The foliage is soft and feathery, and makes a terrific filler for floral arrangements. The most common color is a muted yellow, but yarrow can also be pink, white, and peach.

Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums are top choice in fall weddings for good reason. Big and showy, “mums” come in a variety of shapes and colors, and add texture to floral arrangements. Mums are the official flower of November and are generally less costly than their exotic counterparts.
