To Have & To Hold

Fall's color palette goes hand in hand with the season's most breathtaking bouquets.

Autumn’s color palette goes hand in hand this season with the vibrant sophistication of bridal and bridesmaids bouquets. Regal shades of burgundy, sage and rich poppy recreate fall’s landscape in blossoming arrangements of sunflowers, mini-calla lilies and roses. These breathtaking bouquets are worth holding on to.


This bright bouquet has lively colors with undertones of the fall season’s deep and rich hues. Flowers include dahlias, anemone, gomphrena and two different types of orchids with arching grass accents throughout. Created by Allison McGeary Floral & Event Design ($185).




This long-stemmed nosegay features pink-tipped roses with alstroemeria and hypericum in shades of burgundy and deep brown. A string of faux-pearls, silky ribbon and wax flower give it a delicate Victorian look. Created by KaBloom of North Hills ($85).






The sweet smell of this rosea hydrangea hand-tied bouquet comes from the complementing scent of white hydrangea, orange unique rose and hypericum. Designed by Diana Bauer of McCandless Floral ($140-$160).





Overflowing with natural beauty is this cascading bouquet of orange gladiolus, yellow callas, orange lilies, hypericum and croscasmia. Designed by Janet Woloszyk of McCandless Floral ($160-$200).
