Five Fall Bouquets to Fall in Love With

More and more couples are planning fall weddings. Fall is a beautiful time of year for a wedding when the weather is cooler, the leaves are turning, and rich earthy color palettes dominate design. Organic, more natural florals are a popular choice, with blossoms like dahlias, ranunculus, astilbe, and queen anne’s lace adding texture and depth. Greens like seeded eucalyptus and olive branches as well as berries are also a popular addition.

With color palette, inspiration can come from many places. Some are inspired by fall’s natural color change, bringing in rich yellows, deep reds, and pops of orange. Others aim for more greenery with pale sages and deep emeralds. Burgundy and wine palettes are another popular choice. Many couples choose a more subdued fall palette, selecting subtle blends of colors like champagne, cinnamon, coral, and lavender.
