For couples getting married between late September and November I have the most beautiful autumn wedding flower inspiration for you today! As the leaves on the trees start to turn golden, the evenings get darker and the autumnal light is just perfect, autumn weddings can really be some of the most stunning. The amount of floral goodness available in autumn is just insane and features heavily on rich foliage textures and interesting berries and twigs. Colour palettes can be typically rich, autumnal colours including ruby reds, burgundy or paler peach and rust. You do not have to go all out with orange, yellow and red like some autumn wedding flower inspiration suggests. Colour palettes can be sophisticated, elegant yet warming and I am going to show you how to bring these looks into your wedding flowers today.
Deep reds and mocha seasonal flowers:
This classic palette of burgundy seasonal blooms has been lifted by adding in more muted tones lithese cappuccino roses and creme brûlée phlox. The pale soft yellow of the outer sunflower petals also provide a more paler look to the arrangements and this is what makes the look more modern. All of these flowers, except the roses, are British grown and so completely seasonal to September/October (until the first frosts!)
The dahlias are just nature's magic, the symmetry of petals just blows my mind every time, and dahlias are a must have bloom for an autumn wedding. Coming in so many sizes and shapes, they are an extremely versatile flower ! Use textured foliage to add interest, like this amazing smoke bush, continue which has dark chocolate brown foliage. The dream autumn foliage! Darker chocolate sprigs add so much depth to the below bouquet, and don't forget twigs, berried and dried elements too. They are your best friend in autumn!
Seasonal autumnal bridal bouquets:
These autumnal wedding flowers were full of beautiful seasonal dahlias, berries, locally grown zinnias and peach scented stocks. By adding in the paler colours, the overall feel is lifted and complemented by the brighter tones of the orange Asclepius and dahlias. I love how the deeper red berries and lots of textured foliage really complement the whole feel of these bouquets. Absolutely stunning! Photos thanks to Red Maple Photography.
The beauty of autumn wedding flowers is that there is so much choice out there! This allowed me to make each one of the bridesmaids bouquets just slightly different. Isn't that wonderful to know that each of your bouquets is unique and has never been made before! The buttonholes are super cute and made of burnt orange spray roses, chrysanthemum heads, berries and foliage sprigs. The perfect accessory to any well dressed groom!
A more neutral autumn wedding palette:
If you are keen to stick to neutrals for your autumn wedding flowers then please think about adding in hints of cappuccino/mocha tones and darker chocolate foliage. By keeping the blooms pale in ivory and cream tones, the darker foliage such as smoke bush and hazel will bring your flowers away from a summer feel to their true position at an autumn wedding!
