I think it goes without saying that the bridal bouquet from Natalie and Clay’s wedding was a show stopper.  Natalie was absolutely in love with peonies for her traditional-style bouquet. However, for her late August wedding, we knew they may be difficult to get as peonies are at the end of their season.  As an alternative, we ordered these peach David Austin Juliet Garden Roses just in case, which are so stunning on their own.  Along with some special peony-style roses and eucalyptus greenery, the overall look came together just as we had hoped.  We were able to get our hands on just a select few white peonies to use very strategically throughout the bouquets.  And at delivery, I asked the bride if she could tell which were the actual peonies and which where the alternates.  Her answer: “No, I love them all!”

However, there are SO many different amazing modern styles and color pallets that work in the Fall.  As a floral designer, it is always my job to help by clients find a floral and decor look that fits their personal style perfectly.  You don’t have to wear cowboy boots and get married in a barn with your guests sitting on bales of hay to throw a seasonally appropriate event (not that there’s anything wrong with that).

The most popular floral color we see in the fall is burgundy.  But as you can see, there are SO many beautiful ways to play with that color pallet!
