The Basics of a Beautiful Bouquet

When you’re putting together bouquets for a fall wedding, you have a lot of options to choose from. You could go for a rustic tone, an earthy feel, or go bold with some bright, burnt orange flowers. It all depends on what vibe you personally like best. 

Without further ado, here are some flower suggestions to make sure your fall bouquets are perfect for the occasion.

Incorporate a Rustic Theme

If you’re having a fall wedding, a rustic theme could be the way to go. Using dark floral colors such as maroon with lighter shades of cream can make for a beautiful combination. To perfect the look, you’ll want to stick to warm tones and neutral colors.  

Some flowers you may want to include are garden roses, air plants, and dusty millers. When done right, a rustic theme can provide a relaxed feel that also makes a statement.  

Add Greenery to Your Bouquets

While everyone is adding beautiful flowers to their bouquets, not as many people embrace adding other types of greenery into the mix. For example, olive branches can be a complementary addition to your flowers that brings a unique flair.  

You may want to add olive branches to complement white roses, eucalyptus, or peonies. While alone, this flower combination could look stunning, by adding the simple touch of an olive branch, it can take your bouquet to the next level.  

Add Berries

To make your arrangement stand out, berries are a must. Depending on which flowers you choose for your bouquet, different berries might be appropriate. Regardless of which berry you decide to add, however, it will certainly give your bouquet a quirky but elegant look.  

Some versatile berries we would suggest using include cranberries, grapes, and blackberries. While these berries have darker tones that complement a variety of flower combinations, don’t be afraid to be bold. If you think another berry would look good with your bouquet, try it out. It might just be that personal touch that makes your arrangement memorable.

Whatever flowers or theme you decide to go with, just remember it’s your special day. The suggestions above are only suggestions. Feel free to mix and match flowers and add your own personal flair as you see appropriate.
