If you are already thinking ahead to this autumn's floral fashions, then you have a lot in store. It is time to get excited for dark fabrics with bright contrasts, greenery galore, silken sheen and the most textured, warm hued autumn flowers.

Keep reading for a bride's guide of trending autumn floral fashions you won't want to miss:

Select Seasonal Autumn Flowers

Dahlias, lilies, gerberas daisies and celosia. Alstromeria, chrysanthemums and yarrow flowers. Bridal bouquets and lavish centrepieces composed of these seasonal flowers are already trending and definitely growing in popularity. With a growing awareness of environmental impact and love for the local movement, each year more and more brides are choosing their flowers in-season and sourcing as many local blooms as possible. If you're interested in taking a similarly eco-friendly stance on the day that you exchange your vows, as a couple you can always talk with your wedding florist.

Simply Can't Deny That Dahlia Appeal

Dahlias are as popular as ever this season. You will probably even catch them popping up at weddings this summer, and extending all the way into autumn.

Which Dahlia Varieties?

Keep your eyes out for the much sought-after Cafe au Lait, with colours ranging from blush to peach to a creamy beige. Peaches and Cream dahlia varieties strikingly contrast colours light pink, red, yellow and white tipped petals. Meanwhile, Labyrinth presents a hot pink exclusive, with funky petals that resemble the curve and swerve of calla lilies.

Throwback To Old Flower 'Favourites'

Brides and wedding florists alike used to wilt at the very thought of mums, carnations and zinnias sneaking their way into their flower arrangements. 'I won't! I won't! I won't!' could be heard all the way down and from the back of the aisle. Not exactly graceful, which is why we call the trend flower 'favourites' in quotations.

Astonishingly, these blooms are now blasting off, showing up all over brides' news feeds on Instagram and Pinterest. They are quickly becoming part of some of the most popular floral design, not just for brides but also at openings, receptions and events. Watch for them in centrepieces this autumn.

Dark and Heavy Colours

Don't look so down! The stormy, darker hues and 'muddy' tones are going to be especially big this autumn. The neutral and low hue contrasts will help to balance out autumn wedding bouquets that use a single colour or pale, subdued coloured blossoms like peach, melon, dulce de leche and pale or flame blue.  

Soft Pastels, Pinks and Grey Notes

Riding on the trail of the same reasoning that inspired 'dark and heavy colours,' we are seeing a lot of light to pale pinks, pastels, and grey hues in flower arrangements, particularly of roses and the ever adorable peonies. Expect complimentary greenery in these arrangements, like Dusty Miller, eucalyptus leaves, and lots of succulent varieties.
