Dahlias are hands down one of my favorite flowers. They’re romantic with an edge of moodiness and bring a sense of lushness to an arrangement that’s a bit more unexpected than, say, the popular peony. Their shades of white, pink, yellow, red, purple and orange allow them to be used in a variety of palettes and their late summer to mid-fall peak timeline brings down the costs during prime wedding season. Because I love them so, here is a roundup of some of our favorite dahlia bouquets and boutonnieres from our favorite wedding features around the blogosphere.
