As fall is approaching we took a closer look at which flowers are the best for autumn weddings. In the fall season the nature glows with colour, where it is easy to find a beautiful theme for a wedding. At this time the colour schemes vary from warm shades of yellow and orange, to brown and red. They can also be something a llittle less traditional such as rich plum purple with accents of gray. You can also add fun and interesting elements such as maple leaves and berries to decorate wedding arrangements at this time of year. Adding accents of gold, bronze and other metallic colours will also look marvelous in an autumn wedding.
Lush dahlias are one of the essential flowers for autumn weddings. Dahlias come in all the fall colours: red, burgundy, orange and plum and they blossom during this season. Dahlias symbolize the inner strength and creativity.
Calla lilies are elegant and have a beautiful shape and color scheme for autumn weddings. Calla lilies also keep their shape for several days after being cut. This means that they will look as glorious in the morning of your weddings day as they will at night. Calla lilies suggest magnificent beauty and refinement.
Gerberas are one of the most popular flowers for fall weddings. Gerbera daisies are available in many different colour and sizes and they suggest loyalty and innocence. Gerberas are best to be used in centerpieces and bridal bouquets but can also look fun as a boutonniere or corsage when used in the mini size.
