While daisies may seem like they are primarily a summer flower, because they often thought of as yellow, these flowers also bloom in rich, fall colors, such as purples and reds. In dark tones, these flowers are big and beautiful, and will help draw out any other fall colors present in your theme.

Aster

If you’re looking to paint a to-die-for romantic setting at your fall wedding, consider going with purple aster flowers.

To ensure that you have the best experience, it is best to start discussing your floral arrangements with your florist as soon as possible. Consider the following factors when ordering wedding flowers:
