My wedding is coming up quick and I have final meetings with the florist. We are getting married end of ocober in upstate ny and have a fall theme. I wanted a fall arrangement first for my bouquet but when I tried my dress on it is so detailed that I don’t want to take away from it… any suggestions?

@MizP: Can you post a photo of your dress?
I’m doing a “fall” theme too in my floral. My bridesmaids will carry dahlia bouquets in reds, yellows, and oranges.
However my bouquet will be all white with green leafy accents.
That way I’ll have all the fun colors, but will not take away from my dress with the bouquet.

@MizP: How about some more details like what colors are you using in your wedding? What color are the bridesmaids and have you picked their color for flowers?
I like the PP choice of white with green accents. If it’s all white flowers though, you want to have good texture. Dahlias are late summer/autumn flowers and are one of my favorite flowers and have good texture. I used colored ones in my bouquets. They are gorgeous. And Dahlia buds are cute and give a nice touch of green, like the bud in the first pic below. You could use more though or more greenery for more green coloring. You could add some other in season white flowers, too. If you didn’t want all white, you could always do light pink, too.
If you have any rustic elements you could add touches to the bouquets like scabiosa pods or branching. I had angelvine branching collars on my bridesmaid bouquets. It was an awesome touch.

Just do a simple white bouquet with some fall leaves around the edge. Or do a burnt orange boquet, or something fall-ish. Keeping it monochromatic would probably help from distracting from your dress. BUT, ask your florist what’s available. Where I am, while dahlias aren’t available this year because of the cold summer.. They all got spots from mildew. 🙁
