Floral Color Stories for your Fall Wedding

Each season we see trends in the color palettes that brides are choosing for their florals. For the past few years, burgundy and blush have far and wide been the most popular. It’s a trendy, high-contrast palette that matches nicely with a variety of styles and color schemes- looking lovely with navy, emerald, wine, and white. It’s no wonder it has been so popular. If, however,  you’re the kind of gal who likes to skip what’s “hip” consider some alternative color stories for your big day.

This lovely look has a similar contrast of dark and light, but here a deeper peach, hints of orange and red create the look. Take note of the ribbon-every detail matters. (Twin Vines Floral and Taylor Leigh Photography)

Shades of orange and white make a fresh Fall display. Burnt orange Orchids and the exotic Protea make a seasonally spectacular look and mixed berries add interest. (AZ Fleuristas and J. Colony Photography)

Another pretty example of that orange and white combination in a more formal style. Here, a brighter orange Rose almost glows within the bouquet. Limited greenery makes the colors pop. (Angel Kidwell Photography)

Panda Anenomes, white Spray Roses, dark orange Roses, purple Veronica, and Waxflower make a sophisticated gathering and put another spin on the orange and white pairing. (Little Miss Lovely Floral Design and Sincerely, the Kitchens)

I am a huge fan of monochromatic bouquets and this is a stunning example of one. Orange, in varying hues, make up this compact cascade.  (Anita’s Flowers and Boutique and Kate Fisher Photography)

There is no law that Autumn brides must carry orange! Here a colorful bouquet includes orange in the palette but also incorporates lots of texture and shades of red and green. The multicolored bouquet wrap is fun and lovely. (Sweet Blossoms and Brittany DeFrehn Photography)

Early Fall flowers like heirloom Chrysanthemums, Amaranthus, and Stonecrop gather nicely with blushed Hydrangea, a sure sign that Summer has passed. (Floriculture Micro Farm)

Succulents are a great element to include in a bouquet and look amazing with yellow and white florals. Blue-gray foliage like Eucalyptus and Dusty Miller coordinate nicely in this textural bouquet. (Local Color Flowers and Borrowed Blue Photography)

Smoky lavender is a great choice for your Autumn wedding and looks so pretty when paired with rich reds and greenery. (Creative Floral Designs and Artful Weddings)

Here’s a dreamy option that’s earthy-pretty. Find a florist who gets your style and then trust them to do something spectacular like including mushrooms and seedpods into your bouquet for a one-of-a-kind look. (Bad Rabbit Flowers and Cody James Barry)

There are many beautiful color stories for your Fall wedding. If you love the current burgundy and blush trend, go for it. If you are looking to diversify a bit consider an Autumnal inspired palette including oranges, reds, and yellows-inspired by the changing leaves and landscape. Perhaps a monochromatic bouquet is what you love or a colorful gathering of flowers. Or, maybe you like unexpected elements and colors that define your own unique style and taste.
