Roses, tulips, and peonies in shades of pale pink and white will always have a place in bridal bouquets. But as seasons change, so does the variety and color palette of florals you have to choose from. Happily for future brides, fall brings with it some of the year’s boldest and most beautiful hues, making it fun to think outside the box when deciding on your bouquet.
With buds available in soft shades like peach and mauve, plus plenty of pretty leaves, grasses, and darker-hued blooms, it’s easy to assemble a bouquet that reflects one of the year’s most colorful seasons in a totally romantic way. Here are a few of our favorite fall bouquets.
