Fall is a beautiful season, so a lot of couples decide to go for a fall wedding. Choosing flowers for a fall wedding is not as hard as it might seem. There are a lot of options to choose from. Fall bridal bouquets can be as stylish as spring and summer ones. Here are four fall wedding bouquet ideas.
Idea #1. Go with the fall palette. Autumn is associated with rich and warm hues of red, orange, yellow, and brown. If you want to have a classical fall wedding, go with the traditional pallet. Among flowers that look gorgeous in fall bouquets are aster, Asiatic lily, celosia, chrysanthemum, dahlia, gerbera daisy, sunflower. And don't forget about roses. They are available in many hues including the fall color scheme.
Idea #2. Embrace the contrast. If you think that the traditional fall palette is dull and predictable, you can go with the completely opposite approach. Use different shades of green in your fall bouquet to remind guests about summer. Green bridal bouquets can be made of flowers such as roses, carnations, chrysanthemums, hellebores, orchids, daylilies, zinnias, gladioluses, bells of Ireland (all these flowers are available in green color).
Idea #3. Don't just use flowers for your bouquet. Fall is harvest time, so why don't you order a wedding bouquet that will remind of the cornucopia (figuratively speaking)? A wedding bouquet doesn't have to consist only of flowers, it can also incorporate wheat, autumn leaves, physalis, acorns, pinecones, and even fruits, berries and vegetables such as crab apples, figs, cranberries, pumpkins and ornamental cabbage. Such unusual bouquets look very attractive. And don't forget to order matching boutonnieres.
Idea #4. Forgo the flowers. It is possible to create a beautiful fall bridal bouquet without using any flowers at all. There are great alternatives for brides who are not afraid of being unconventional. You can opt for fabric/felt/paper flowers, bouquets made of leaves and branches, or even something more original. Besides, you can wear an autumn leaf crown and have your flower girl toss leaves instead of rose petals.
