Petal Pick: Autumn Leaves For Your Wedding Day

Generally speaking, we like to limit our “petal picks” to actual blossoms. But sometimes, in certain seasons, we have to accept the fact that not all arrangements require the assistance of flowers. And when it comes to fall we might argue that the flower of the season is found in the natural colors of its changing leaves anyway. Which is precisely why, this week, we’re talking about autumn leaves instead of traditional petals – because these colors, shapes and fall-flavored additions to table décor and bouquet details are absolutely lovely.

First of all, bridal bouquets. One of the most prominent flower arrangements of your day, this collection of blossoms can only benefit from the vibrant colors of fall leaves.

And these table arrangements. Bright leaves, white flowers – we’re in love.

One of the most playful places to incorporate autumn leaves into your wedding décor is certainly the groom’s boutonniere – or an impromptu photo.

We love the delicate details of these leaf escort cards. Perfect for a rustic celebration, the combination of careful calligraphy and natural color and texture is truly elegant.

Finally, the very last adornment your guests will see on your wedding day: an autumn-inspired garland for the back of your getaway car!
