Spring is filled with soft pastel palettes; summer was designed for all things bright and bold; and fall always feels so appropriate for more moodier hues. Although we never quite want to release our grasp on spring and summer and all of the flowers that peak during both seasons, we’re embracing fall (and all of its blooms!) with open arms.
The key to planning a wedding during any time of year is to enjoy the process and your soiree’s season. It’s a concept that is so much easier said than done; however, a little research goes a long way, particularly when you’re thinking about your floral budget. If you’re wondering why your budget is evaporating much too quickly, it may be because you have fallen in love with out of season blooms (hint: peonies are in season in late spring!). So, we suggest doing your research when choosing your date to ensure your go-to flowers are in season and planning in advance. Take note of the flowers you see at farmers markets, in the grocery store, and in personal and professional gardens.
These 15 fall wedding bouquets offer a peek into some of the prettiest in-season blooms so you can get inspired for your own big day, no matter your style.
