Some of our favorite picks for autumn blooms!
Alstromeria comes in almost every color of the rainbow, but we love the rich purple hues for this one! My cousin is getting married in October and their wedding features this "Peruvian lily," so I have it on good authority to say that these flowers will look stunning! The only problem I have with it is that I never know how to spell "alstromeria" ..."alstroemeria?" "alstromerias?"
Roses will always be season! The classic, elegant rose would look beautiful in any fall arrangement, especially in dark red, orange, or plum. And of course, white would look good too, especially against a backdrop of their dark green leaves.
Though you may think of succulents as a more summery choice, they are quite honestly a year-round favorite, and they're not going anywhere this season! I bought a succulent plant at IKEA a while ago, and I think it might be dying, but we're not gonna talk about that... And I went to Target today and they basically have an entire aisle in their home decor department dedicated to these adorable little planters filled with plastic succulents. Personally, I'd like to make myself one out of sugar...and I might just do if IKEA plant croaks... But back to wedding flowers! Pinkish-green succulents look great on their own, or mixed in with other blooms, and their waxy appearance adds a little texture that will make any floral arrangement pop!
Think more green and purple, not so much the bright blues and pinks of summer. White hydrangeas also add a touch of elegant sophistication to any arrangement. My mom has been growing hydrangeas for as long as I can remember, and there's reason these flowers are so timeless. They look so delicate individually, but bunched together they add so much volume and color and movement. (psssst...you can buy some hydrangeas here!)
Calla lilies are a classic wedding choice for a reason! Plus, they come in rich, autumn shades like crimson, and their unique trumpeted shape adds some depth to any arrangement or bouquet!
It was hard to only pick five! There are so many diverse and beautiful flowers to choose from! But no matter which ones you choose for your bouquet, decor, or wedding cake, they are sure to be beautiful on your special occasion! ;)
