Hi, I'm elizabeth.


It’s finally autumn! The leaves are changing color, the weather is getting cooler, and that means one thing – wedding season is just around the corner. If you’re a bride-to-be dreaming up those details to complete your look, I’ve got some amazing fall bridal bouquet ideas to help create that finishing touch.

From those classic fall color palettes all the way to softer tones and whites or rich jewel tones, there’s definitely something here for every style. Keep reading along and get inspired by some of our past bridal bouquets to create a look that compliments you in the most effortless way!

The Classic Fall Wedding Bridal Bouquet

In my opinion you can’t go wrong with the ever-popular colors of fall: orange, yellow, and red. This is the quintessential color combination of the season and it evokes such a warm, cozy, and rich feeling that it’s hard not to love.

Deep, Rich Jewel Toned Bridal Bouquets

If you’re looking for a bouquet that’s rich, dramatic and textured, consider using deep jewel tones. Rich colors like emerald, sapphire, and ruby are stunning against both lighter and darker skin tones, contrast beautifully against a white dress, and definitely makes a statement.

Classic, Light & Romantic Bridal Bouquets

For a bouquet that’s both elegant, delicate, and understated, consider using a lighter palette and introduce layers of similar colors to create texture. This is a great option if you’re looking for something that will complement your dress without taking away from it. Plus, it’s a great way to add a pop of color if your dress errs on the simpler side.

These bouquets are proof that you don’t have to abide by the classic fall reds, oranges, and yellows color palette if you’re planning a fall wedding. To make it seasonal, try incorporating slightly deeper tones of some of your colors (deep blues, or plum purples, dusty mauve or mustard yellow) in order to ground the palette with your lighter flowers.

Which of these romantic fall bridal bouquet ideas is your favorite? I love them all, but if I had to choose just one, it would have to be those with the rich, deep plum purples, rich reds, ochres and burnt oranges. Anything in the the jewel tone family also contrasts beautifully with white (design tip!).
