Fall wedding season is quickly approaching, so we asked some local florists to create stunning bouquets and offer flower tips and trends for the autumn brides-to-be.


Peach hypericum berries and succulents add variety to a bridal bouquet of cinnamon and Sahara roses, PeeGee hydrangeas and cream lisianthus, wrapped with a silk ribbon.

  • Wedding bouquets are trending toward freedom of expression. Brides want their flowers to be unique and express their individuality in all different ways.
  • Neutral and earthy tones of peaches and oranges are very popular for autumn weddings.
  • Texture is very important right now. There’s a broader range of options for textures beyond just using flowers, including succulents, ribbons, fruit and jewelry.


A bountiful autumn bouquet is filled with Highbush cranberries, hypericum berries, hydrangeas, roses, dahlias, thistle, amaranthus, celosia, Oncidium orchids, wheat, Lamb’s Ear, euonymus and ivy.

  • Use elements that are symbolic of something to make a bouquet more artistic and special. Wheat signifies fertility and ongoing life, while ivy stands for marital fidelity. You can reference the language of flowers to create a meaningful piece.
  • Autumn is a beautiful season to get married, and you want to evoke the crispness of those colors. Greens, golds and coppers make up a great fall palette, in addition to the traditional oranges and reds.
  • You can get access to a variety of flowers year-round now, so it’s no-holds- barred for what you can incorporate into your bouquet. Blousy dahlias or big, lime-green spider mums are really associated with fall.


One peach poppy adds a touch of whimsy to the bouquet of English garden roses, dahlias, ranunculus, Queen Anne’s lace, olive branches and ornamental grass, accented by long streamers of colorful ribbon.

  • Lighter shades of peaches and blushes allow the bride to stand out in her dress.
  • A wine-colored ribbon plays off the golds and greens, and the palette echoes autumn colors without screaming of fall leaves.
  • The tradition is still a handheld bouquet, but a perfectly round arrangement isn’t necessary. The free-form, oblong-shaped look is becoming more popular. The bouquet looks more natural, like it was pulled from the garden.
