Fall weddings offer the perfect chance to incorporate beloved seasonal colors that may be too bold for the softer trends of spring and summer weddings. An autumn celebration allows couples to incorporate unique foliage into flower arrangements, add interesting materials to bouquets, and highlight rich hues in various elements of wedding décor. Fall flower bouquets are another way to integrate an autumnal trend into your celebration without creating an event that may be too seasonally themed for your taste.
Bridal and bridesmaid bouquets for fall weddings can feature a variety of blooms, including dahlias, ranunculus blossoms, roses, and even orchids accented with foliage and greenery, such as eucalyptus, dusty miller, amaranthus, berries, thistles, and even fresh fruit! Various options allow couples to get creative while choosing floral designs. Even if you desire a vibrant purple or blue wedding bouquet, you can create a fanciful fall flower arrangement by accenting your favorite wedding flowers with autumn-inspired foliage.
Browse some of the fall flower bouquets below, all of which cater to various color palettes and wedding styles:
