three pretty flowers for summer (and fall) weddings

+++ POP QUIZ +++

Q: What do these flowers have in common?

a. they bloom in time for late summer and fall weddings

b. they are grown in the usa

c. they are all the same genus

d. all of the above

These are some seriously gorgeous flowers. The answer is d: all of the above. They are all Dahlias, and they're grown in Portland, Oregon by one guy, Mark Harvey, of Old House Dahlias. In fact, he grows more than 175 different types of them. Who says Spring brides have to get all the nice flowers? Dahlias are an absolutely gorgeous choice for wedding flowers in late summer and fall. They can get quite large and are pretty sturdy (they are tuberous), so they are a great choice for the heat of late summer and early fall weddings. Just a few stems can really add some delicious color to your wedding table.
