Tons of Texture
Add an autumn touch to your bridal bouquet by foregoing the ever-popular blush pink and opt for a moodier, muted mauve bloom, instead. From there, work in pockets of deep merlot and glossy green foliage for an effortlessly elegant texture.

Rustic Birch Wood + Muted Mauve Blooms
Whitewashed birch place settings add to the rustic romance of the autumnal floral arrangement. We’re enamored with the mix of muted, fall pastels. Mauve, sage green, barely-there smoky blue and overflowing accents of rich, rust orange makes for pure magic.
Fruits of the Harvest
Farm-to-table brides, raise your hands — this one’s for you! Nothing quite spells the season like fresh, foraged fruits in your bouquet. Forgo the flowers all together — glossy, ruby apples and fresh berries are outright beautiful, wrapped in flowing eucalyptus and fastened with ribbon.

White After Labor Day
Break the rules. Go all white after Labor Day with a foraged bouquet featuring white astilbe, white lisianthus, silver dollar and bonsai eucalyptus, white veronica and purple limonium.

Interrupt the soft peach, blush and burgundy blooms with a giant, geometric succulent. It adds trendy texture, steely color and interest galore, all without taking away from overall elegance of the arrangement. Pro tip: long, lush eucalyptus work wonders to blend succulents into otherwise delicate floral arrangements.
Pumpkin + Pitcher
Pretty in a pitcher, this arrangement keeps color front and center for fall. Hues like magenta, sunny yellow and orange look striking and energized against this cool, green vessel. With all that color, how does one establish that “fall” feeling? A sweet, solo white pumpkin at the base of the vase offers a subtle hint of the season.
Farm to Table
Tiny trees in tin pots offer high-impact style for a formal, farmhouse-style fall wedding. Bonus? The newlyweds can take the centerpieces home and plant them to create a mini-forest to remind them of the best day of their lives for years to come.
Fresh-picked posies are all the rage and we love this high-texture, effortless arrangement of white wildflowers for fall. A touch of yellow blooms here and there adds that sought-after warmth for a seasonal touch.
Berry Hues + Bark Wall
Marry berry-red with bark accents for a woodsy, wow-worthy fall arrangement. Perfect example? The red anemones and modern glass bulbs produce a decidedly-chic design against this bark backdrop. Swoon!
With its graphic black and white details, this bunch of blooms is perfect for a modern, autumn wedding. Anemones, peonies, fiber-optic grass (Isolepis cernua), vines, mock orange and nigella offer a variety of textures in this imaginative bouquet. Floral design by Nancy Liu Chin Floral & Event Design.

Pops of Red
‘Tis the season to tote fire engine red and minty eucalyptus and this bouquet does not disappoint. Adding big, mauve roses into the mix adds a classic, timeless element to the otherwise vibrant arrangement.
Wheat + Thistle
Rich, Romantic, Red Roses
This McQueens bouquet relies as much upon the stems as the petals in this densely textured firework of red and plum roses. The end design appears equal-parts sultry, sophisticated and oh-so-special for the bride-to-be.
Florals + Feathers
The rustic birch and feathers arrangement features an orange Korean mum, white roses, cattails, seeded eucalyptus and a mushroom in a birch vase.
