Tips and Trends for Your Perfect Fall Flower Wedding Bouquet

Selecting your wedding flowers for a spring or summer wedding is easy, but getting married in the fall presents a little bit more of a challenge. Fortunately, we’ve compiled a list of tips and trends for fall floral arrangements. So, don’t worry, your autumn inspired wedding bouquet will be just as gorgeous and stylish as you always dreamed.

Fall Flower Wedding Bouquet - Roses

Rich Hues

You can still use the same classic wedding flowers you would in any other season; just tailor them to the time of year by going with more deep and dramatic shades. Capture the warmth of the season with rich reds, deep oranges, and buttery yellows, or opt for some unexpected colors like copper, aubergine, and forest green. Dahlias are a great choice for fall flower bouquets because they come in those rich fall hues. Roses are always popular and available in just about any color you’d like.


For autumn wedding flower bouquets, try a diverse mix of flowers to add layers of captivating texture. Consider adding non-floral accents like fiddlehead ferns, hypericum berries, or wooly lamb’s ear leaves. Acorns, oak leaves, and dried greenery may also work as fall-themed decorations, capturing the essence of this transitional season. You can easily add depth by including flowers with dark centers like poppies or silk anemones.


Succulents make great centerpieces. These plants are seasonless and come in beautiful autumnal hues like plum, pomegranate, and cactus green. Their leaves often resemble flower petals, so they fit in seamlessly with fall flowers.


Traditional glass vases give off more of a light, airy feel that is perfect for summer weddings. In the fall, try getting creative with rich, eye-catching containers like gold, silver, and copper pots and vases. For an earthy look, choose containers made of wood or stone.
