I love an autumn wedding, I think we all do here at Urban! When having an autumn wedding it is best to work with the flowers that are in season that suit your style and colour scheme.

Using locally grown flowers is always a special way to support local growers and limit your footprint on the planet. So speaking to your florist is the best way to find out what is best to use.

Here are some autumn flower ideas and our favourite choices.

There are several beautiful flowers that are in season during autumn and are perfect for incorporating into an autumn wedding. Here are some popular options.

Flowers in season in autumn

1. Dahlias

Dahlias are known for their vibrant colours and intricate petal formations. They come in various shades, including deep red, burgundy, orange, and yellow, making them an excellent choice for adding bold and rich tones to your floral arrangements.

2. Sunflowers

Sunflowers are iconic for their bright yellow petals and large blooms, which symbolize happiness and warmth. They bring a cheerful and rustic charm to autumn weddings and work well as focal flowers or in mixed arrangements.

3. Chrysanthemums

Chrysanthemums, often referred to as “mums,” are quintessential autumn flowers. They come in a wide range of colours, including shades of orange, yellow, burgundy, and bronze. Mums add texture and depth to bouquets, centrepieces, and floral installations.

4. Roses

Roses are available year-round, but certain varieties are particularly fitting for autumn weddings. Opt for roses in warm hues such as deep red, burnt orange, or burgundy to capture the essence of the season. Garden roses, with their romantic and ruffled petals, are especially popular for autumn arrangements.

5. Marigolds

Marigolds are versatile and resilient flowers that come in vibrant shades of orange, yellow, and gold. They are often associated with autumn festivities and can be used in bouquets, boutonnieres, or as accents in centrepieces and floral decorations.

6. Zinnias

Zinnias are charming, daisy-like flowers that come in an array of colours, including shades of red, orange, and yellow. They add a whimsical and playful touch to autumn floral arrangements and work well in both bouquets and centrepieces.

7. Lisianthus

Lisianthus is an elegant flower with delicate petals that resembles a rose or a peony. It comes in various colours, including white, pink, and purple, and can add a soft and romantic touch to your autumn wedding floral designs.

8. Autumn foliage

Incorporating autumn foliage, such as maple leaves, oak leaves, or eucalyptus, into your floral arrangements can enhance the seasonal vibe. These elements bring texture, colour variation, and natural touch to your bouquets, centrepieces, and other floral decorations.

I love a pumpkin filled with dried flowers as a centrepiece! For a timeless look a floral display with elegant seasonal flowers. You could go boho with lots of pampas grass and white roses.
