Top tips for choosing autumnal flowers

Top tips for choosing autumnal flowers: Image 1 Q – My hubby-to-be and I are having an autumn wedding and would like to incorporate the time of year into our flowers. Do you have any ideas about what blooms and colours we should look for?

"Many people associate autumn with traditional burnt oranges and reds but we’re starting to see an increase in purples, reds, pinks, dried flowers and foliage.

"Deep hues will contrast with soft, muted versions and look great when mixed with foliage. We’re starting to see more of these instead of full-colour bouquets as they look more natural and suit the time of year.

"Some options that are available in a range of colours are roses, spray roses, hydrangeas, dahlias, freesias and delphiniums. Filler flowers are equally as important so look for options like astilbe, thistles, scabious and ranunculus. Foliage is also a must-have, mix your blooms with seeded eucalyptus, cinema eucalyptus, parvifolia and baby blue eucalyptus to create texture.

"The possibilities are endless, and with the help of your florist, you’ll be able to create the perfect arrangements."
