Fall Flowers for a Wedding

One of the most common reasons to choose fall flowers for a wedding is budget. Autumn brides will find that flowers that bloom in fall typically cost less than out-of-season flowers, which often need to be flown in from tropical regions. This can make all the difference in how many floral arrangements a bride can afford to decorate her wedding with.

Though it falls at the end of the traditional wedding season, autumn is regarded as the most beautiful season for a wedding. The colors of the changing leaves and the flowers that bloom in fall both provide colorful inspiration to brides. Earth tones and other reminders of the harvest season are also popular choices for an autumn wedding.

Non-floral items also act as wallet-friendly elements for an autumn wedding bouquet. These add volume and interest to your wedding floral arrangements without pushing you beyond your flower budget. Ivy and other cascading plants, berries and wheat make great fillers, but can also be used to create striking bouquets all their own. Imagine a few simple white roses or tulips surrounded by a collection of viburnum berries and ferns. Try trailing ivy with orange fall flowers, for a wedding with a Halloween or harvest theme.

There are several different types of flowers that bloom in fall. Here are a few of your options:

  • Dahlias. Dahlias are vibrant, sunny flowers that fall somewhere between daisies and carnations. Some dahlias feature a modern honeycomb design, which makes a nice contrast with classic “smooth” flowers like roses and tulips. Inexpensive but attention getting, dahlias are some of the most popular fall flowers for a wedding.

  • Chrysanthemums. Chrysanthemums can also look somewhat daisy-like, depending on their variety. Often associated with Asian cultures, these would make great flowers for an Asian-themed wedding. Try floating bowls of chrysanthemums in water, for an unusual fall wedding centerpiece reminiscent floating lotuses. Mums also come in a range of fall shades, from yellow and gold to deep, rich reds.

  • Stephanotis. A classic white flower for fall, stephanotis is also a popular bloom year-round. It's often paired with roses and fillers like coxcomb or ferns, and is known for being expensive out of season.
  • No matter which fall flowers you choose for your autumn wedding, bouquet or centerpiece, sticking to seasonal hues and blooms will keep your big day looking modern and elegant.
