WeddingHour’s Best in Bloom arrives in autumn, showcasing our favourite flowers for a post-summer wedding.
It’s getting towards the end of November already! Autumn’s really had us in its grasp, and now we’re on the cusp of winter.
Before we leave autumn behind, we’re welcoming the third instalment of our Best in Bloom series: bringing you our pick of the best flowers, whatever the season you’ve chosen for your wedding.
Of course, choosing the flowers in season can mean you have the most beautiful of the blooms within your budget. We’ve guided you through the best of spring and summer, and now we’re introducing autumn. With hues of orange, yellow and gold, some of the most stunning arrangements can be found when the leaves begin to fall on the ground.
At WeddingHour, we love the idea of a wedding set against the backdrop of a glorious autumn sky, inspiring us to seek out the most spectacular flowers for your autumnal wedding day. Take a look at our top five blooms below:
Marigolds are beautiful, daisy-like flowers. They come in many colours, but yellow and orange are the most popular: perfect for an autumn wedding. Not only are they a beautiful complement to a white wedding dress, they’re also a hardy flower: ideal if an autumn breeze blows!
A bold, yet not overbearing, bloom, hydrangeas truly are flowers of elegance. Not just suited to your bouquet, they make excellent centrepieces and even cake adornments! By autumn, you’ll often find hydrangeas in wonderful green and pinky-red hues.
Hypericum are the ideal choice for your autumn wedding bouquet. They have beautiful berries, with many per-stem, making them a wonderful choice of filler for your autumnal arrangement.
At WeddingHour, one of the reasons we love freesias is for their gorgeous scent! We may not be able to get that across through our blog, but we can show you how they are the ideal stand-alone flower to form a simple, yet striking, bouquet.
Choose the traditional, whilst making a statement, with gladiolus. The large stems are striking alone, wonderful as a natural, autumn bouquet or standing proud in vases as your centrepieces.
Of course, at The Wedding Affair we have a selection of exceptional recommended florists. Take a look at our approved supplier list here to see the finest in the industry; they’d love to hear about your ideas.
