Top Tips for your Autumn Wedding Flowers

When choosing flowers for your Autumn wedding I would start with your colour palette and wedding theme.  A good wedding floral designer will work with you to create unique flower arrangements and bouquets that accessorise you the best. 

Pinterest is a good place to start to develop an idea of your theme, but nothing beats working with your floral designer to create a unique look designed with you and your wedding in mind. 

I always encourage my brides to go for flowers that are hardy, will last and will look stunning even when they are out of water for the day. 

Firstly I usually encourage my brides to use the old favourites – we can never go wrong with roses!!  And they are available all year round. The colours and types of roses may vary, but there is no doubt that they are the true bridal flower

In addition,  here in Australia we have such an abundance of beautiful native varieties that are guaranteed to make a statement.  King proteas, beautiful fragrant gum leaves, dollar eucalyptus, delicate blushing bride proteas all make for the most incredible long lasting statement bouquets.  

If your wedding is coming up this autumn I would also recommend Tulips, my favourite red Amaranthus to create those beautiful soft cascades, Carnations (yes they are definitely back in vogue and SO hardy), Daphne in pink, purple and white, strong and hardy Chrysanthemums in a range of colours, Freesias ( a little bit more expensive) Hyacinth (various colours) and the beautiful soft Snap Dragons.

Start with your colour palette, your size and style of bouquets, and then move from there into reception centrepieces, table garlands, or whatever style you most love.
