Fall Wedding Bouquet Tips
Inspiration for your fall wedding bouquet is important, but so are the logistics. Prepare for your florist consultation by having your budget and some design thoughts ready to go. Then, let your florist take it from there!
Start with a mood board.
Alyssa Abshier and Victoria Nadler, co-founders of Amber Sol Collective, an event planning company that specializes in one-of-a-kind styling, encourage to-be-weds to start their floral design plans by creating a wedding decor mood board. They also recommend doing research on specific bouquet styles, popular fall wedding flowers and possible color palettes you're envisioning. "The more specific you are, the better your florist can emulate your vision. And having an inspiration board will help you and your planner really narrow down your unique design for your big day."
Incorporate fall greenery and seasonal foliage.
Fall is the season of foliage. As the trees begin to turn vibrant shades of burnt orange, red and yellow, don't be afraid to incorporate ample foliage into your bouquet as well. From rust-hued maple leaves to pampas grass and seeded eucalyptus, fall-inspired designs work really well with lots of foliage. And as an added bonus, incorporating some types of foliage into your arrangement can help stretch your floral budget even further.
Let your florist work their magic.
As much as we recommend preparing for your florist consultation appointment, it's also important to keep an open mind for your florist's ideas too. They're the expert when it comes to making the most of your wedding budget and choosing the right flowers for your aesthetic. If their work is what drew you to hire them in the first place, you can trust them to bring your vision to life for your own special day.
