This elegant wedding at The Boston Public Library features shades of pink and cream blossoms with navy elements. Lush roses and hydrangea with stock and lisianthus were signature blossoms throughout the event. Trailing ivy on the reception tables as well as on the groom’s boutonniere added romantic green elements.

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.
Here we’ve selected 5 fall bouquets with a mix beautiful blossoms and even greater inspiration. Which one is your favorite?
1. Rich Burgundy Dahlias with Olive & Queen Anne’s Lace
2. Cinnamon Roses with Dusty Miller and Coral Sprays
3. White Dahlias with Succulents and Viburnam Berries
4. Golden Orchids with Orange Dahlias and Burgundy Callas
5. Ivory Roses with Eucalyptus and Wax Flower
This year's palette inspirations are soft and subdued. A lot of natural tones are finding popularity over bright pops of color. Metallic decor is still highly desired and soft pinks, blues, and mauves are the perfect compliment to these lustrous silver and gold details. Lush greens like eucalyptus and dusty miller with their subtle almost smoky green color are a great choice to pair with the overall palettes. Below we've chosen 4 of our favorites for the 2018 season. Enjoy!
1. Dusty Rose
Elegant and understated, Dusty Rose is subtler than a true pink. Dusty rose transitions well and can suit sophisticated palettes or more laid back decor. This color pairs beautifully with creams, greens, and even navy. For our inspiration palette, we chose the soft pairing of Dusty Rose, Cream, & Sage.
2. Black & White
Black and white may be the boldest color pairing on our 2018 palette list (and that's saying something!). This classic never goes out of style and can be very sophisticated especially paired with metallic gold. For a black and white look, we recommend sleek details like an all-blossom bouquet for a striking touch.
3. Powder Blue
Powder Blue can be both sweet and elegant. This shade of blue is lovely with creams and whites as well as blush and chartreuse. Paired altogether powder, blush, and cream can be an especially beautiful mix. The subtlety of color is perfect for Spring and Summer weddings.
Green heavy weddings are huge for 2018 and we love this look. A palette of all greens is fresh and can be utterly elegant. Pair with cream blossoms to compliment the greens themselves. We love mixing various kinds of greens for a richly textural look.
