Be an optimist and choose sky blue flowers to encourage a cloudless September day. Deep purple flowers compliment brighter blue shades so ask your florist for a tonal blue and purple colour palette then select the blooms you like the best. Delphiniums will pop against the white of your dress paired with lavender hydrangeas and velvety purple lisianthus. Adding a touch of white or cream and a sizeable helping of softer foliage will bring your bouquet together and give you something suitably substantial to carry. Don’t forget to keep your blooms budget in mind and choose seasonal flowers rather than splurging on arrangements that need to be imported.Left: via Style Me Pretty | Top Right: via Style Me Pretty | Bottom Right: via Flowerona.com
September flower arrangements often include red and deep pink roses that we typically associate with romance. For a simple alternative choose lighter cream and pastel pink roses to brighten up an overcast Autumnal day and provide a focal point in a dimly lit venue. We love this hand-tied bouquet with lilac roses, vendela cream roses and selection of herbs that add a soft scent and a vintage feel.

Opulent red roses are a popular choice for September wedding flowers because of their versatility and their luxurious impact when paired with shades of cranberry and plum. A traditional choice which works well both as a hand-tied bouquet and arranged as part of a ceremony pedestal or centrepiece. Experts suggest brides should avoid a combination of white and red roses and instead pair shades of red, orange, purple and green finished with a metallic or hessian tie.
September brides can also take advantage of seasonal fruits like crab apples that add a textured dimension to a standard bouquet. Pine cones, berries and ornamental cabbages have the same effect adding depth when matched with delicate dahlias. Finish your bouquet with a rustic touch of burlap or lace ribbon wrapped tightly around the stems for effortless country elegance.Left: via Floralartvt.com | Top Right: via Floralartvt.com | Bottom Right: via weddingomania.com
