Fall is a season about celebrating natural beauty, and a fall wedding is an opportunity to do the same. This time of year, leaves are changing colors, flowers are blooming, and fruits and veggies are all being harvested. So take advantage by incorporating these elements into your fall wedding décor, and particularly into the day's floral designs!
With vibrant colors and autumnal blooms everywhere, it's easy to get inspired for your own bridal bouquet. And though a fall wedding feels practically synonymous with a rustic-themed bash, that doesn't have to be the case. The key to making your 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're after the rustic-chic look for your fall wedding, you can always 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 the season.
Below, you'll find traditional bouquets in bold palettes, unexpected bouquets of all shapes and sizes, and petite bouquets of singular in-season blooms. Scroll through the 47 fall bouquets to find the one that fits you and your fall wedding theme best!
