In the United States, there has been an increase in the number of weddings that are held between September, October and November. The season of autumn has become a popular wedding period. Couples are welcoming the idea of holding an evening wedding with the backdrop of an orange sunset and autumn is becoming increasingly popular for weddings. The main challenge is that autumn is known as the season for wilting, and this presents a problem for couples in their selection of wedding flowers. However, there are numerous fall wedding flowers in the season that can be used to adorn the center-pieces and bouquets.
Six Fall Wedding Flower Choices
First is the Asiatic Lily, which is a lily that offers the beauty of a lily with a subtle fragrance. The subtle fragrance of
the flower complements autumn and offers a faint sweet smell while maintaining the autumn theme of a wedding. This type of lily has a hardy stem that is perfect for bouquets. It is also not easy to wilt allowing it to adorn center-pieces easily even when set up earlier in the day. The different colors like lime, white, creamy white, light pink, red and peach make it flexible for most color schemes used. This is the top pick for anyone who wishes to have an fall wedding.
The Purple Alstroemeria
The Purple Alstroemeria is another stunning flower that is popular in autumn weddings. The flower is purple in color with three to five blooms on a single stem. This creates a beautiful bouquet or vase centerpiece due to the number of blossoms on each stem. This is one of the best picks for couples who are going for bold flowers.
Another popular flower in autumn is the Celosia flower. This is an oriental flower that is in season from summer all the way to late November. It is one of the most prevalent flowers in autumn. It has a wide variety of colors and petals making it easy to pick the best based on the wedding theme. The two most popular are the Bombay Celosia and the Crested Celosia. The main benefit of this flower is that it is easy to pair it with other flowers to create a centerpiece or bouquet.
The Dahlias are another excellent option of fall weddings. Dahlias are quite delicate but when combined with the right flowers can create a sturdy bouquet that can stand the tussling of the wedding. They have a broad range of colors, and this creates flexibility based on the color scheme chosen for a wedding. Even though they are present in autumn, they do not last till the end of the season, and it is advisable to use them as early Fall wedding flowers.
Leucadendron and roses
An additional flower that is quite popular in fall is the Leucadendron. This is a flower that is available throughout the
year and it provides a wide range of hues based on a green color scheme. While they are not as aesthetically pleasing as other flowers, they complement almost every other flower. The solid nature makes them a perfect combination with other flowers. The final and most familiar all year flower that can be used in fall weddings is the rose. The distinct rose flower scent combined with the numerous different colors makes it one of the most popular wedding flowers. It is grown all year round making it available for Fall weddings too.
Choosing the perfect Fall wedding flowers sometimes requires a clever combination. Delicate flowers like the Dahlias and roses can be combined with stronger ones like the Leucadendron, Purple Alstroemeria, and Asiatic Lily. Regardless of the choice, Fall weddings can also have the splash of color and fragrance from flowers that are in season.
