In the wedding industry, trends change at a pretty rapid rate. If you’re getting married in the fall and have no idea where to start with flowers, we’ve compiled 3 bouquet styles based off of fall color and textures to assist you with the process.
This bouquet is classic in it’s composition, a traditional round style, but not so typical with the flowers used. The red spikey flowers are considered a tropical flower called Protea. The Protea in this particular bouquet acts as a focal flower with wonderful texture and depth. The green fuzzy looking flower is called Green Ball Dianthus, another great texture flower that’s fun and funky. The berries are, as you may have guessed it, berries. Their technical name is Hypericum Berries and they come in a variety of different color including red, green and peach and act as a subtle textured addition to almost any style of bouquet in almost any color scheme. There is a green in this bouquet that’s kind of whimsical in it’s nature called Bupleurum. This particular green also works very well in various bouquet styles and color schemes and add another layer of subtle interest.
Though you can’t fully tell from this imagery, this bouquet is intended to be a cascading style bouquet with the ivy falling downward. The bright orange roses, waxflower, yellow sunflowers and pink miniature calla lilies add just the right amount of “pop” to this earthy bouquet. The dark burgundy/brown wild looking thing is called Kangaroo Paw, it’s another fun and funky texture that works great in fall floral pieces. This bouquet also utilizes the reddish orange Portea, red berries and bupleurum. Though you can’t really see from the images, there are real raspberries also being used as another source of texture and uniqueness.
Last but not least, this is a non-traditional hand tied bouquet that you would hold the same as the first traditional style hand-tied bouquet. The same types of flowers are used in this bouquet as the first bouquet with the subtle addition of miniature green hydrangea but the composition is much different. This piece is not for the traditional inspired bride to be as much as it is for the eclectic, earthy, organic inspired bride to be as it has a lot of abstract elements like the branches and Kangaroo Paw.
