Autumn Floral Inspiration!

Finally, are we right? Our summer here in Vancouver was great and long and very toasty, but it was also marred by terrible forest fires in the interior of the province. So believe us when we say, we're happy to see some rain around here! 

The drop of temperatures always signals the beginning of such an exciting season—Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and so many gorgeous autumn weddings. We made lists of some of our favourite autumn cocktails, which you can read here and here, and today, we want to talk florals! 

How does one imbue their bridal bouquet or centrepieces with the essence of pumpkin spice? Like this! 

Dark gemstone hues and orange roses!

How amazing are these bouquets? The themes we're seeing is lots of emphasis on gorgeous greenery, dark gemstone palettes with muted bursts of brightness, and the occasional orange rose.

If you thought we'd leave pumpkins out of this, you thought wrong. Also consider running some beautiful eucalyptus or boughs of green along the length of your tables, punctuating with a few tiny pumpkins or gorgeous red apples. The kids can take the pumpkins home after the wedding!

Autumnal flower crowns!

While we're all excited about eating only root vegetables and stews for the next few months, also consider choosing flowers that are specific to autumn where you live! We love how the bride above incorporated red autumn leaves into her crown, and how the bride on the right looks like she might be wearing flowers indigenous to her area! So beautiful.

What do you think? Did you cater your bouquet to the season? We'd love to hear in the comments! Check out our Pinterest board for more inspiration.
