When it comes to choosing flowers for a September wedding, embracing the beauty of the season can add a touch of magic to your special day. As summer gracefully transitions into autumn, September brings with it a breathtaking tapestry of warm hues and crisp air. This natural transformation sets the perfect stage for weddings that exude a romantic ambience. From rich, earthy tones to delicate blooms, let’s explore the seasonal wedding flowers September has to offer.
The Significance of Seasonal Flowers: Selecting seasonal flowers for your September wedding not only enhances the overall aesthetic but will also create a harmonious connection to the surroundings of your wedding venue. Using flowers that are naturally available in September also helps reduce the carbon footprint associated with out-of-season blooms. September offers a stunning array of floral choices in rich, warm colours like deep burgundy, burnt orange, and rustic yellows, mirroring the transition from summer to autumn.
Top Picks for September Wedding Flowers:
1. Dahlias: Radiating elegance and variety, dahlias are available in a spectrum of colours, ranging from rich reds and oranges to softer pinks and creams. Their intricate petals and bold presence make them a perfect choice for adding drama to your arrangements.
2. Roses: While roses are available year-round, certain varieties like the “South Park” rose capture the warm, rosy tones of September whilst “Dorchester” provides an ivory shade with a warm peachy tone. Their classic appeal and timeless beauty make them a versatile addition to any bouquet or centrepiece.
3. Sunflowers: Evoking a sense of joy and happiness, sunflowers bring a touch of rustic charm to September weddings. Their vibrant yellow petals and robust stems create a wonderful contrast against the backdrop of autumnal foliage.
4. Aster: Delicate and dainty, asters symbolize love, patience, and elegance. Their star-like appearance and shades of purple and blue can add a pretty, delicate touch to your wedding decor.
5. Lisianthus: With their delicate petals and soft colours, lisianthus flowers add an air of grace and elegance to September weddings. Some punchier tones are also available giving your autumnal wedding a kick of warmth and luxury.
6. Craspedia: This little yellow lollipop of a flower is a fabulous pop of colour. Perfect for a fun-loving couple who want to add a touch of late summer sunshine without overpowering the entire wedding.
Creating Stunning Arrangements: When designing your September wedding floral arrangements, consider incorporating elements that reflect the season’s beauty. Mixing in foliage like eucalyptus, ivy and berry branches can provide a natural and rustic vibe. Combining your chosen seasonal flowers with textures such as velvet ribbons or vintage-inspired containers can enhance the overall aesthetic.
