Our Favorite Fall Flowers

Fall is such a beautiful time of the year. The vibrant orange pumpkins, deep red apples, and bright yellow sunflower and wheat fields are all represented in the changing leaves. Your wedding bouquet should reflect this natural beauty. We’ve got some tips on how to build the perfect fall wedding bouquet without spending a fortune.

When choosing your color scheme for a fall wedding, look at nature. Finding inspiration from your surroundings will ensure that your wedding is naturally beautiful, in-season, and budget friendly! “Some of the most popular colors we see in the fall are burgundy, rust, orange, creams, and light yellows,” says Jeff from Buehler’s. These color schemes of hues of yellows, oranges, and reds are typical, as they’re what you’d find in the changing leaves and blooming flowers.

Vince from Forest Woods agrees that burgundy and peach are popular colors for a fall bouquet, but adds that “lavender is great for all seasons. We’re also seeing a growth in both silver and gold tones, though rose gold is starting to take a back seat to copper.”

So you’ve decided on a color scheme, but what flowers should you use to comprise your bouquet? To stay in-budget, choose stems that are in-season. If you want a flower that is typically found in the spring, you’ll have to pay extra for your florist to have them imported.

“Fall weddings give the bride a large variety of garden flowers to create her own unique look,” says Tom from The Bouquet Shop. “We currently use locally grown Dahlias, Celosia, Amaranths, and Ranunculus in an autumn palette that ranges in colors from burgundy tones to coral-peach tones. Dahlias come in white, cream, yellows, pinks, burgundy, eggplant, and lavender, so that the colors chosen can compliment the attendants dresses to create the vision for the bride’s special day.”

Fillers are an extremely important part of any bouquet because they “fill in” any empty spaces. This makes the bouquet look complete and voluminous without adding too much cost. Leaves are a common filler used in a fall bouquet, but you’ll also see yarrow, status, cosmos, hypericum berries, salidago, and status, according to Jeff from Buehler’s.

“A bohemian style bouquet using a variety of greens including seeded, gunni, silver dollar, and willow eucalyptus with hypericum berries used as accents has been a popular choice for autumn weddings,” Tom from The Bouquet Shop recollects. “The  Bohemian style bouquet allows the bride to capture the beauty of the individual garden flowers that she has chosen, which reflect the awe of nature itself.”

We suggest adding autumnal additions like wheat, pumpkins, or apples for diversity in texture and size, but don’t get too carried away. Too many fillers can make a bouquet look busy.

Ways to Save Money

Flowers can be one of the most expensive investments for your wedding day. This is because they’re usually part of your decor and centerpieces, as well as your bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres. We mentioned before that choosing flowers that are in-season plays a huge part in staying within your budget. Another way you may be able to save money is by using flowers that have a big bloom. Luckily, a lot of fall flowers – like Dahlias, Sunflowers, Zinnias, and Mums – have a wide diameter when fully bloomed. If the flower is fuller, you’ll need less stems to create a voluminous bouquet, meaning less money spent!
