The Best Flowers + Foliage for Fall Bouquets
Fall is my absolute most favorite season of them all for so many reasons! Not only are the colors just jaw-dropingly gorgeous, but its colors are just so warm and inviting, especially for wedding bouquets!!
Fall weddings are all about embracing the season and the nature changing around you! In Utah, the mountains start to change color in early September and gradually the colors fill the valley through October -- making this time of year just perfect for saying your vows and celebrating love!
What flower colors are best for each season?
If you're getting married in Utah around this time of year, it's fun to select colors that tie your wedding to the natural world around you, and only enhances and amplifies the decor you choose! One of the most commonly asked questions I hear is what coloring is best for each season. I like to respond by saying that nature tells us what is best already! Each season, nature gives us flowers and foliage that are truly distinctive and indicate what colors are best to use for wedding bouquets, decorations and backdrops.
What flowers work well with fall weddings?
Fall is full of golden tones ranging from the very light, almost champagne side to the dark, coppery side. To achieve these color ranges, consider using some (or many!) of the following flowers for a stunning fall wedding:
- Cafe au lait dahlias (or all dahlias, really!)
- Lacecap hydrangea
- Koko loco garden roses
- Golden mustard roses
- Combo roses
- Wine Ranunculus
- Chocolate dahlias
- Cappucino roses
- Caramel antique garden roses
Adding Foliage to Your Bouquet
And it wouldn't quite be a true fall bouquet if you didn't have some gorgeous foliage! When I can, I love finding some of my favorite fall foliage right in my backyard and foraging the colorful greens for my clients' floral decor. But if I'm purchasing, I'll almost always go for the following foliage:
Add in Lots of Texture
For some truly unique details and texture in your floral bouquet, try adding in some of my favorites:
- Bronze amaranthus
- Date berries (or all the berries!)
- Chinese lantern
- Rose hips
- Kangaroo paw
- And pods, pods, pods!!!
