Fall and Winter Wedding Bouquets
Bouquet with Aubergine Dahlias
Late-season aubergine dahlias get their sparkle from white-tipped petals. The leaves are embossed velvet. Fresh chartreuse acorns are a nod to the colors of spring, just a season away.
Fall Harvest-Inspired Bouquet
Fall harvest at its most robust. White and rust mums are the surprise here, and the driving force of this bouquet. They are carefully interspersed among white roses, accented with hypericum berries, and cupped with oak leaves. Feathery out-of-season plumes of astilbe soften the arrangement.
Natural and Rich Colored Bouquet
Surprisingly rich in color, bearing hues of blue, green, dusky rose, and taupe, these puffs of dried hydrangea are almost weightless. They are heightened by calla lilies, which soften the shape and scale of this purely natural display, as does the pomegranate-colored, satiny silk ribbon.
Wintery Red Bouquet
For big arrangements, the simplest geometry is best, as in this bouquet created for a Christmas bride. Velvety, perfectly opened amaryllis blossoms and hypericum berries resembling beads of garnet are offset by lacy sprigs of arborvitae.
The blue-gray of juniper boughs and deep green of arborvitae boldly replicate the cool colors of winter; the branches themselves determine the dramatic shape of the bouquet. Delicate, graceful snowdrops are tied onto the branches, tiny blossoms cascading as they would in nature.
Wintery Bouquet with Pinecones
Pinecones tipped in glitter glow like a halo around dusky blooms of mauve roses and miniature paperwhites. The delicate flowers soften the rustic sensibility of the pinecones, and accentuate the illusion of floating light.
Wintery White Bouquet
Lightly fragrant carnations take their cue from the season, with each blossom as unique as a snowflake, even echoing a snowflake's filigreed form.
