A Bouquet of Red & White Dahlias with Maple Leafs

Fall is officially underway, so it's time to start thinking about gorgeous wedding flowers that highlight the season. With tons of vibrant colors and autumnal blooms everywhere, it's easy to get inspired for your own bridal bouquet.

Although a fall wedding feels practically synonymous with a rustic-themed bash, that doesn't have to be the case. Brides-to-be can host an elegant fall affair without compromising their specific style. The key to making your bridal blooms feel seasonal without going overboard is to pick flowers like mums, astilbe, and asters, or choose petals in hues like burnt orange, yellow, and deep red.

Of course, if you do favor the chic rustic look for your fall wedding, play up the theme with accents like maple leafs, seasonal berries, wheat, and greenery. These simple additions can turn a classic bouquet into an autumnal arrangement that truly represents your wedding date.

If you're throwing a more traditional celebration, use fall-themed details smart and sparingly to evoke just a hint of the season. Opt for an ultra-formal bouquet of burgundy peonies accented with fiddlehead ferns or tie your arrangement together using burlap ribbon.

To help you create your own version of a fall wedding bouquet, we pulled together 28 of our favorite seasonal arrangements. You're bound to find the most beautiful bouquet to accompany you down the aisle with this many picture-perfect options.
