Just wondering what y’all are planning on using for flowers? I know nothing about flowers, but as soon as I find something that I am in love with, my best friend/MOH tells me that they are out-of-season in the fall. Grrr… 🙂 What are the flower plans of my fellow October brides? 🙂

I’m doing lots of black magic roses, but my florist tells me they are more expensive during this time so booo. Also doing orchids. Attached is my inspiration! (with the black magig roses instead of the orange ones)

I’m doing all orange flowers for bouquets and bouts (roses, calla lillies). Then there will be mums everywhere used merely as decor.

Fall Flowers (about.com):
Aster * White, Pink
Chrysanthemum * White, Yellow, Orange, Pink, other colors
Dahlia * Many Colors
Marigold * Yellow, Orange, Red
Statice * Purple
Zinnia * Red, orange, pink
Sunflowers * Yellow, Large and Small
We’re going with the purple roses, sunflowers, dahlias, etc. You can find some beautiful in season flowers! Here is my inspiration, but we’re using sunflowers instead of calla lilies and throwing in some dahlias.

@KIKI82 did your florist tell you why the Black Magic are more expensive at that time of year? I’ve been doing events for a long time and my understanding is that roses are pretty much always in season here in SoCal. Check out The California Cut Flower Commision website, they pretty much back that up http://www.ccfc.org/. The only thing I can think of is your wedding being around Halloween, these roses are VERY popular for halloween because of how dark they are. Take a trip down to the LA flower mart and look for some alternatives if you’re after the dark red roses, the guys down there are always really helpful to with info and alternatives. You may find somthing REALLY close that doesn’t cost as much (if you need to save some money). That site is a GREAT resource for anyone getting married in California for looking to see what flowers are in season. It’s also a good research point for other locations, check to see if there’s a commision in your state.

We’re doing flowers from the local farmer’s market for our wedding. When I went on our date last year, the most gorgeous flowers were sunflowers and ranunculus in orange, yellow, and red. However, those are Wisconsin’s local October flowers. I agree with the oranges and deep reds though …. beautiful!

Roses are versatile because they come in almost any color. Still deciding if I am going to order in bulk online or make a trip to the farmer’s market.

We are doing dahlias (pink for me, white for the girls). But there are also lisianthus, ranunculus, roses (available year round), mums, delphinium that are available in the fall. What colors are you looking for?
