Fall Wedding Bouquet Recipe

Fall Wedding Bouquet Recipe


Posted By on Aug 23, 2016

Fall brides, this one’s for you! We took one of the most popular fall wedding bouquet pins on Pinterest and put together a quick recipe. It’s easy to see why this is such a popular pin on Pinterest- the bouquet screams fall (the pumpkins in the background are definitely helping). And what fall bouquet could be complete without some dahlias? The orange dahlias in this fall wedding bouquet are the perfect addition of color, texture, and fun!

Gorgeous right?! This bouquet has a little bit of everything- a large headed bloom, focal flowers, fillers, greens, and the best texture additions.

To make this bouquet you will need:

10 orange dahlias
3 stems of blue hydrangea
7 Juliet peach garden roses
8 stems of dendrobium orange mokara
5 stems of thistle
7 stems of brunia silver
7 stems of dusty miller
Floral scissors
Floratape/ stem wrap
Navy and white striped ribbon

Large-Blue-Hydrangea Juliet-Garden-Rose-2

Dendrobium Orchid Orange Thistle

Brunia Silver Dusty Miller

Follow these simple steps to make your own fall wedding bouquet:

1. Cut the hydrated stems a little longer than the desired length (1- 1.5 feet is plenty).
2. Start with 1 stem of each kind of flower/filler to create a base for the bouquet. Bunch each stem together to create a round shape and then secure your first layer with the floral tape.
3. Add additional stems each type of flower/filler in an even rotation around the base and continue to build the bouquet, securing each additional section with floral tape.
4. Continue to add new layers until the desired size and shape is reached. Then apply the last layer of floral tape.
5. Leaving excess ribbon on both ends, wrap the striped ribbon around the bouquet until no more floral tape is showing. Then tie the excess pieces in a bow or knot.

Happy Friday Bride-to-be’s! We have been gathering photos all year of beautiful bouquets from real brides and weddings. Now it is time to show you some of the trends we have been seeing from DIY brides in 2016.

We are seeing many brides are opting for a more whimsical, romantic and less structured bouquet. This is contrary to the very popular circular shaped bouquets. We have also seen more bohemian/rustic style weddings which lend themselves perfectly to this style of bouquet.

An element that has been steadily increasing in popularity, has been incorporating plants that are not typical “flowering” plants- such as roses – and instead opting for Thistles, Craspedia Billy Balls, Berry Fillers and Succulents. These plants offer a unique texture to the bouquet and are visually stunning!

There are also plenty of trends that are incorporating non-flower items into bouquets, such as jewels and paper art. These accents are beautiful and add a lovely sparkle or contrast to the bouquet. Although, nothing beats the beauty of perfectly bloomed Roses, and Peonies.

We love sharing the beautiful floral creations of our brides, and are always looking for more creations to share, so if your wedding is in 2016 and you haven’t shared with us, please reach out! Keep an eye on our blog, as next week we are looking at trends in other floral wedding details!
