We are now looking forward to the holidays and the weddings we are assisting with are featuring fall color schemes of oranges, golds, browns, and even reds.

Let's face it - it's hard not to be inspired!

Is it time to think of your fall wedding bouquet?

Why not celebrate the season by diving into some fall-inspired creations:

  • Sunflowers are always a bright, cheery addition to any bouquet. They are both bright and cheerful and make a fabulous bouquet focal point. Why not keep it simple and craft your whole bouquet with just sunflowers? Or splash an accent of hypericum berries or spray roses.
  • Why not try mixing fresh hydrangea with dahlias, thistle, and dusty miller?
  • A lot of our brides this year loved dahlias and made them the focal point of their bouquet. A few ideas including pairing their dahlias with lush brown gum tree leaves and orange bittersweet berries. The berries perfectly accented the dahlias.

    Let Nature Inspire Your Fall Wedding Bouquet

  • What could be better in autumn than sweet autumn wild raspberries? It's a great central concept but can also work well as an accent if you include seeded eucalyptus, calla lilies, and columbine.
  • In the end, wildflowers work in bridal bouquets at any time of year. Let your creativity soar by mixing a blend of colors like dark purple, burgundy, and burnt orange?

    How About Some Romance For Your Fall Wedding Bouquet

  • The lesser known ranunculus is a gorgeous addition to any bridal bouquet and adds a romantic feel. Mix with snowberries, kangaroo paws, or even garden roses to capture the essence of autumn.
  • Have you considered succulents? These often underestimated florals can provide a stunning accent to any bridal bouquet. Pair them with garden roses, curly willow, and seeded eucalyptus to create an autumn fantasy look.
  • If none of the ideas above float your boat, try an old favorite like Gerber daisies, mini calla lilies, dahlias, freesias, and roses. The rich mix of fall colors will create a stunning bouquet.
