So you’ve set your wedding date. You’ve chosen the crisp, clear days of fall – a magnificent time of the year when nature is putting on a real show. Now comes the planning. Everyone wants to get their wedding just right, but with so much to do, so many options to choose from and money getting tighter it can all get a little stressful. Choosing your fall wedding flowers is no different. My aim here is to give you some information that will make the choices easier for you, so at least the flower part of your wedding planning is an easy one!
There is a tremendous array of flowers available: traditional flowers such as roses, peonies and orchids; flowers of the season like sunflowers, ranunculus and chrysanthemum; or indeed you may have soft spot for spring flowers.

Colours: White, pink through to blue, green,purple
Look: A full, roundish head consisting of little individual single flowers. They make for quite full arrangements. Depending on the color, they can look quite soft (white and pale colors), to bold (deeper pink) to rustic (green).
Uses: Can be used anywhere in your larger arrangements and bouquets. They are ideal for combining with other flowers to fill out the arrangement. Keep in mind that they are quite thirsty and will need to have their own water source in order to last the day.

Look: Nodding flowers along long spires. They are quintessential cottage flowers.
Uses: Add a cottage garden, somewhat spontaneous look to arrangements. They add visual height. Provide the lovely blue color that is somewhat hard to come by.
