Flower ideas for autumn weddings

Pastel colour flowers on a grey background Credit: www.sarahbartleetphotography.co.ukQ – I’m planning to tie the knot next autumn and want flowers that will wow our guests. Do you have any ideas?

"For flowers that look their best and have a real impact, see what’s currently in season. Autumn has some amazing options such as dahlias, gladioli, anemone crocosmia and cosmos, and you could also incorporate berries, seed heads and grasses. It’s the time for harvest, so you can go to town on edible elements within your floral designs.

"Another way to make a real impact is to embrace colour. Soft pastels are lovely but for the wow factor consider more vibrant shades.

"Don’t just think about the tables, work with your supplier to look at the venue and think about hanging clouds or garlands – your florist will relish the challenge to get creative!"
