Stunning Bouquet Styles for the Autumn Bride
Style #1: Loose Blooms with Added Trimmings
Texture overload is practically a given for fall styling. So in addition to gathering an eclectic mix of loose blooms and foliage together in one lush bunch, many autumn bouquets add even more visual accents—like long, flowing ribbons (1, 3 4) or exotic pheasant feathers (8). The colors used can combine deep rich burgundy, plum and burnt orange with softer peach, yellow, and blush pink.
Style #2: Cascading
The drama of a cascading bouquet seems suited to the season, too. With fall celebrated as a time of abundance and harvest, the effect of blooms overflowing gracefully from the bride’s arms (2, 8, 5) can be quite breathtaking.
Style #3: Single Variety or Single Bloom
This bouquet style has been in vogue for a few years now, and is a definite attention grabber. Single variety would mean gathering just one type of flower into a charming arrangement—whether bold and bright sunflowers, dreamy astilbe, fragrant lavender or dainty baby’s breath.
Single bloom refers to having just a lone flower with perhaps some leaves—like this stunning King Protea (7) or maybe a large magnolia blossom, a giant dahlia, or even a ‘composite bloom’ assembled from loose petals.
Style #4: All-foliage
With rustic, boho and woodland weddings being so popular come fall, the all-foliage style of bouquet is a most fitting choice. You could go for a ‘botanical’ look bursting with assorted greenery and berries (6), or a ‘forest’ effect featuring boldly colored autumn leaves. Aside from foliage, natural elements like herbs, small fruits and pine cones would capture the autumn vibe perfectly, too!
