If you haven’t decided on your Autumn wedding flowers colour theme yet then why not look to the season for inspiration by choosing rich, luxurious colors. There are the classic well loved Autumn colours of orange, gold, cream and rich reds or alternatively consider deep dramatic colors such as aubergine, burgundy, chocolate browns and forest greens.

Design Ideas for Autumn Wedding Flowers

One way of adding texture to your bridal bouquet and flower arrangements is to include berries, fruits and foliage – the natural bounty of Autumn! Hypericum berries are available in a wide range of colors including red, orange and brown, but there are also white, yellow, green and pastel-coloured berries. Rose hips and viburnum are another option they look gorgeous mixed with roses and hydrangea in a hand-tied bridal bouquet.

Herbs and foliage are a lovely addition to your wedding flowers and wedding bouquet. We love the idea of a hand-tied bridal bouquet using scented garden roses complemented with mint, rosemary, Rose Hips, Eucalyptus and sages for wedding flowers with a just picked from your garden feel. Feathers and ornamental leaves such as oak leaves are another way of adding additional interest to your bouquet.

There is a fabulous selection of Autumn flowers available in addition to the many other wedding flowers such as roses, calla lily, freesias, gerbera daisies and orchids which are available all year round. Why not be inspired by the seasonal countryside  during the months of September, October and November.
