It should come as little surprise that the most popular months to get married — May, June, September, and October — perfectly coincide with peak dahlia season. Sure, swoon-worthy peonies and gorgeous garden roses are still among the most popular flowers for wedding bouquets, but it's safe to say that dahlias are far from a bloom you'd turn your nose up at. In fact, today's bride is even clamoring for the dahlia to become the focal point of her arrangement.

It's easy to understand why: This symmetrical flower makes a big impact and can be far less expensive than other popular wedding flowers. Why? The dahlias affordability is in large part due to its comparatively long growing season. While these blooms grow abundantly for several months, peonies peak just during late spring, meaning you'll pay more to bring them into your big day bouquet.

While they're certainly practical, there's no denying that dahlias are incredibly beautiful, too. And with dozens of common varieties grown, there's no shortage of options to pick from in order to find a look you love for your wedding day. A perennial favorite is the Café au Lait dahlia, which comes in creamy pink, blush, peach ivory, and rose hues and is revered for its huge shape. In fact, some florists refer to this variety as the dinner plate dahlia, since they can bloom to be as large as dinnerware.

With tons of different varieties — including single-flowered, waterlily-shaped, ball-shaped, and cactus-dahlias — you're bound to find a color and shape you love that fits perfectly with your wedding aesthetic.
