Need inspiration for fall wedding flowers? The time of year, after all, has become increasingly popular for nuptials: The Knot found that three of 2022’s top wedding weekends are in October. (In order: October 22, October 8, and October 1, for those who were wondering.) One of the main reasons for the choice, they report, is because couples love the romantic backdrop fall foliage so naturally provides.
So for all the brides and grooms currently in the midst of planning a fall wedding, Vogue decided to compile the best seasonal blooms, bouquets, and arrangements from the real weddings we’ve published. Take a wedding in Kyoto which included an abundance of pampas grass, or a New York City affair at the Rainbow Room where the couple said their vows under an arch of moody Japanese maple leaves. One wedding in Connecticut used fall foliage as an aesthetic accent throughout, while another in the same state adorned their table with classic red roses to create a dramatic, romantic effect. Then there’s a September bride in Switzerland who, on the morning of her wedding, strolled to the farmer’s market to buy blooms for her own bouquet.
Below, the best fall wedding flowers in Vogue—from bouquets, to table arrangements, to decorative accents. (And, if you’re looking for even more seasonal inspiration, here are our best fall weddings, too.)
