Fall weddings are all the rage right now with New York event planners, and with good reason.
The cooler weather makes an elegant backdrop for your formal gown, and the fall flowers are gorgeous.
Here's our list of the top ten fall flowers for 2022!
Fall wedding dates are quickly booking up, so if you're planning a fall wedding and haven't started looking at your flower options, it's time to get started!
Fall flowers are beautiful and in season. They're also available for a long time—a full month in most cases—so you have plenty of time to find the perfect blooms for your big day.
This trend is ideal for romance enthusiasts who want something timeless and classic. From rustic accents like pumpkins to soft pastels like lavender or lilac, these arrangements will be perfect no matter what type of décor they go with.
Dahlias are a popular flower that New York event planners feel you should consider for your fall wedding. They have a bold, vibrant look, and will add some punch to any arrangement or bouquet. You can also use dahlias in table centerpieces and wedding cakes to add even more color!
Garden roses are a beautiful choice for a fall wedding. They come in many different colors and sizes, so you can choose one that fits your wedding theme perfectly. Garden roses will add an elegant touch to your bouquet or centerpieces without being too flashy or over-the-top.
Eucalyptus (Silver Dollar)
If you're looking for a flower that's on-trend, but still classic and perfect for fall, the eucalyptus (silver dollar) is an excellent choice.
The eucalyptus has been popular in weddings since the 90s when it was first introduced as an alternative to roses. These days, eucalyptus is one of the most popular wedding flowers out there. It's especially great for fall weddings because its leaves turn a gorgeous red color during this time of year!
If you're planning your fall wedding (or even winter wedding), be sure to consider adding some silver dollars in your bouquets and centerpieces too!
Pampass grass has a unique look that can make a statement at your wedding.
It’s also one of the easiest types of flowers to care for, making it an ideal choice for the DIY-minded bride.
The plant grows 6 feet tall and features long blades with a feathery appearance that resemble grass. When in bloom, pampass grass produces clusters of bright yellow flowers on top; they look similar to dandelions but smaller and more delicate.
You can use pampass grass in bouquets or as an accent in floral arrangements—just be sure to keep your centerpiece low so guests don't accidentally knock over any delicate blooms!
Amaranthus, or love-lies-bleeding, are an excellent choice for fall weddings.
The plant has a particularly long taproot that is able to penetrate deep into the soil. This makes it very drought resistant and able to grow in poor conditions.
If you’re looking for a flower that has an antique feel to it, the antique hydrangea is perfect. It comes in shades of dark purple and can be used for table decorations or bouquet arrangements.
This beautiful flower is in the hydrangea family and grows from the ground up into a bush like shape with large clusters of flowers.
The antique hydrangea is a great option for fall weddings because it adds some color to your wedding day without being overly bright or intense. The dark purple color goes will with most fall colors such as brown, orange and green.
You can use this flower as part of your bridal bouquet or even place them on each place setting at your reception tables along with other fall foliage such as leaves and pumpkins.
Celosia is one of the most popular flowers for fall weddings. Available in a variety of colors, heights and sizes, shapes, textures and arrangements, there’s no doubt that this flower will pair beautifully with any wedding theme.
The carnival flower has been around for centuries and can be recognized by its distinct shape—a tall head with a flat base and long petals that curve outward.
Celosias come in a wide range of colors including reds, oranges, yellows and greens making them perfect for fall themes like rustic or boho chic.
Marigolds are the perfect choice for a fall wedding. With their bright colors, they add a welcome pop of color to your reception tables and decor.
They're also one of the best choices when it comes to adding texture thanks to their long petals that can be used in a variety of ways—from bouquets to centerpieces.
Fall wedding flowers are popular for a reason. They're in season in the fall, so you can get all the flower varieties that you want without having to worry about them wilting before your big day. Plus, they're not too expensive and there are a lot of different options to choose from.
The autumn crocus is probably one of the most popular choices out there—and it's easy to see why: its purple petals go well with almost any other flower or greenery option (and it can also be used as an accent).
It's also low maintenance, so you don't need to worry about watering it every day like some other types of flowers would require!
Sunflowers are a great choice for fall weddings. They're a popular choice, too: they're versatile and easy to grow.
What are the benefits of sunflowers, you ask? For starters, they can be used as centerpieces or bouquets (and even double as table decorations).
In addition, you can use them in other ways—like using their petals to decorate your tables or scattering them throughout the grass area where your guests will be seated. The possibilities are endless!
