Any time of the year is a great time to get married, but the fall of the year is my personal favorite. There are so many more flower choices and vibrant colors available for an autumn wedding. Hydrangea, which is a year-round wedding favorite, is beginning to antique into gorgeous fall colors. Celosia, shown in red here, is becoming another popular choice. Celosia grows in yellow, red, orange, pink, and burnt orange. Chrysanthemums have been shunned for years for weddings, but are making a comeback. Their cheerful green color complement other brighter colors.

Natural elements like these Berzillia baubles and artichokes are being included in bouquets.
Colorful autumn foliage is a nice change from the green colors of summer. Smokebush is one of our favorites to use.
Some brides include exotic, tropical blooms, such as anthurium, ginger, varieties of orchids,
and Ti leaves. These are awesome for beach weddings, too. Another favorite of nature lovers is protea.
The pincushion protea is appropriately named. It’s texture and spiky points lend movement and texture to the bouquet or centerpiece.

Add to these the flowers that you can get all year, and you can create a magnificent and original bouquet. The best thing about fall flowers is the price. Sunflowers, roses, orchids, and hydrangea are all lower in price than for summer weddings, so you can save money by having your wedding in the fall.
